This past fall, we filled you in on the first-ever happening of the Toss the Bouquet all-things-wedding consignment sale, which happened in Villanova to great success.

(Here’s the breakdown to review, but basically, this is an event where you can either sell on consignment any amount of wedding stuff you’d like to unload from your Big Day—anything from your gown to yards of excess ribbon from the bows you tied on your programs—or, if you’re a bride-to-be, scoop this kind of stuff up at 5o to 75 percent off what it would usually cost.)

The ladies behind it are gearing up for another one—and it’s happening next Saturday, April 12th at the Women’s Club of Bala Cynwyd! The event starts at 9am and goes until 2pm. From 9-11:30am is the regular consignment sale (where, just by the nature of a consignment sale, everything is discounted off retail), then they close their doors from 11:30-12, and then from 12-2pm is when everything goes on a major discount. A sale on a sale, if you will. So while discounts are greater a little later in the day, the selection is at its height in the morning!

If you are a bride who’d like to come here to shop, your entry is free; any buddies you bring can buy a $5 ticket online, or pay $10 at the door. If you are a recent bride who’d like to sell, here’s a list of the type of stuff they’ll accept, and here’s how it works; just register here. Lauryn Thornton, one of the founders of the sale, tells me that these things, in particular, really flew out the door last year:

  • Ceremony Decor {arches, candelabras, candles, unity stands, guest books, aisle runners, aisle decor, etc.}
  • Reception Decor {centerpieces, vases and cylinders, candles, ribbon, bows, fabric, burlap, table linens, chair covers, table runners, cake stands, cupcake displays, candy station containers and decor cake serving sets, toasting glasses, charger plates, catering supplies, lanterns, chinese lanterns, favors, single letter monogram items, etc.}
  • Paper Items {leftover program paper, table numbers, blank escort/place-cards, gift bags, unprinted, unopened napkins and other paper products (plates, cups, etc.), favor bags/boxes, signage, etc.}
  • DIY Decor {anything from tree branches used to make crystal tree centerpieces to decoupage luminaries that you lined the walkway of your ceremony area with or the  50 feet of blue fabric that you used to decorate your head table.}

Plus: This time around, they’ve partnered with some local bridal salons, and will have an entire little bridal suite filled with lovely sample gowns that will be marked down between 60-75 percent off retail prices. Let us know how you make out!
