Budget Brides Beware - Media Release Bridal Expo

Press Release: 19th July 2010 for immediate release


Budget Brides Bag a Bargain! Bridal Fair with Budget Brides in mind! Brides fight it out to Bag a bargain! The fight is on to bag a bargain for lucky brides!

Budget Brides Beware! Brides Buy, Sell & Swap Vintage and Near New Gowns!

How much should you spend on a wedding dress? Most brides would be lying if they said they didn’t consider saving money with their dress and every component of the wedding for that matter! Increasing internet access combined with the global financial crisis spin off combined with other matters of frugality has led to changes in the way couples approach their upcoming nuptials.

A new phenomenon is sweeping the U.S.A it is a bargain bonanza event called -Running of the Brides which managed to bring some bridal gown retailers out of bankruptcy and also gave brides an opportunity to buy discounted gowns. Bearded Dragon Boutique Hotel at Tamborine, a popular wedding destination for many couples has implemented this idea with their upcoming Wedding Expo in August.

A huge selection of pre-loved, new & one lady owner bridal, formal gowns and accessories will be available to buy, swap or sell for local individuals and businesses. Monique Gregory from the Bearded Dragon says “Increasingly brides are considering online bargain websites in Asia and ebay as they consider saving dollars for their wedding. Who could blame them? When you are buying sight unseen - online then it can become a problem! This event is a great way for brides to pick up a bargain, gather ideas and also pocket some cash if they want to sell their pre-loved gown & wedding trinkets that are gathering dust in the attic!”

The first event of its kind will be held on Sunday 8th of August at Bearded Dragon, with over 40 bridal businesses, fashion parade, event theme ideas plus the individual stall holders in the vintage bridal market area.
