What is The Marriage Mart?
The Marriage Mart is a marketplace where the DIY and Budget Bride can buy and sell wedding gowns and wedding accessories.
The concept is the brain child of Lila Rogers, a wedding planner who wanted to create a place where brides can shop for items that will make their weddings a beautiful affair without breaking the bank. She also thought it would be a great idea for those same brides to sell their gently used wedding items, giving future brides the opportunity to save as sell.
Lila's Thoughts !
"The concept behind The Marriage Mart came about one night while I was sitting on my front steps scrolling through social media. That night I was looking through the marketplace searching for wedding items I could purchase for my business. There was nothing in particular that caught my eye until I came across wedding dresses. It never dawned on me the amount of people who were selling their used or in some cases unused wedding dresses. Seeing all those beautiful dresses gave me the idea to have a platform for the budget bride.
From experience I know as a wedding planner, planning a wedding can be pretty expensive. There are some areas where a bride would love to be able to cut corners; why can’t it be on a wedding dress; or shoes, what about accessories? Purchasing your dream wedding dress shouldn’t have to cost a lot of money."
