    So we took our parents to see our wedding venue yesterday, fantastic weather to do it in and I'm glad to say they all loved it. Our wedding planner is getting married herself there this year and she is lovely. She told me about a new thing they are having there called a bridal boot sale - has anyone heard of these or been to one?

    Its a new thing for our venue (a beautiful manor barn) and apparently its quite a new thing. Its been done in Hampshire before but this is the first one of its kind in Wiltshire. Basically she described it as previous brides setting up stools and selling on decorations and things on to new brides and a nice mixer for local brides as well - there's even a groom corner and Tea room being set up.

    Anyone experienced this before?

    I've never experienced this but I think it's a fantastic idea! The closest I have is getting hand-me-downs from friends who recently got married and still have some items (candleabra's and the like) who are happy for me to take them off their hands and likely I will sell them on as well on Tree of the Gum etc. Something like this would be great for Brides to have another platform to discuss ideas etc.

    Gonna have a nosey now and see if I can trace one down up here in Dundee.

    Damn... none in Scotland :(

    When I read the post title I thought you meant bridal boots instead of bridal shoes :p

    Donna - Bridal boots instead of shoes lol I have images of cowboy boots and bridal gowns in my head!

    Yeah it sounds like quite a new thing and was started in Hampshire recently so not sure what to expect but I will def give it a go, may find some interesting things to add to the wedding. Unfortunately h2b is away on a footie weekend so won't be there to look with me but i might find some things or get ideas. Going to ask one of my bm's to come with me for girlie day.

    Carly - I'm not sure where in Wilts you are but I'm close to the wilts / hants border just outside Salisbury. Its on Sunday 8th June. Not sure if I can post exact details but I can message you if your interested. Let me know.

    Yes there have been two bridal boot sales in the last few weeks near where I live in North Yorkshire. Unfortunately I missed them both as I was working! I was mortified! Apparently they were a huge success!

    Never heard of it before but I keep seeing signs for something similar round here... of course I've not seen the sign since I started planning my wedding but I guess that's just typical!

    Just to give you all an update me and bm went to this bridal boot sale at our venue on 8th June and it was a beautiful sunny day.

    We had to pay to get in and it was a bit like a wedding fair as in had some photographer stalls and wedding dress stalls but quite a few people selling random bits like table confetti, jam jars, bird cages etc. I didn't buy anything, as the only things I was interested in are just as cheap or cheaper on [email protected] etc. Did get some ideas re: bunting decoration which I really like and am looking into. They did have a nice tea room with cake tho!

    Also as it was my venue I was allowed to show my bm a lot of the private grounds that we will have access to. Since me and h2b last went the paddock parking area has been finished, outside furniture (garden/patio chairs) have arrived and slate tables for outside drinks have been made so a few new touches have been added and they look fab. BM loved the venue and wished it was around when she got married 2 yrs ago!
