Wedding Yard Sale?
Well, Hello there Ladies!
I totally promise to get back to my post about my vintage bohemian chic wedding, but this past week has been out of control. I sent out my save the dates (YAY! Post about those soon to come) and I am in the midst of working on my Family Law exam. I did, however, have a question to put out there to you wonderfully smart and thrifty Metro DC soon-to-be brides...
I have been conversing with a local bride to be that I met through The Knot about sharing the cost of paper lanterns. I also posted some Polaroid film I have been hoarding on Ebay in an effort to make some extra cash. As I mentioned in a previous post, I AM CHEAP. So, I have been working on trying to find ways to save money on EVERY aspect of this wedding, even if its just a few dollars here and there.
I was browsing The Knot this morning and saw several posts from local women selling their wedding goods and then a light bulb went off in my head *DING* Wouldn't it be neat to have a wedding yard sale? Local brides and recently married ladies could come to the same place, at the same time, on the same date and trade, buy or sell goods to one another. Win. Win. Right?
What do you all think? I was thinking about a place in DC that is free to use and already has tables/benches, like Rock Creek Park, on a Sunday afternoon (because we all have weddings to attend on Saturdays). I was thinking...hmmm...late August? Does anyone know if a permit is needed for something like this? Feedback is totally appreciated, Ladies (even if you think the idea is crazy)!
