Plan Your Big Day Sustainably With Vinnies’ Upcycled Wedding Weekend

Vinnies is helping brides and grooms celebrate their special day sustainably by holding an Upcycled Wedding Weekend at Vinnies Picton on 7 and 8 September.

Featuring a diverse selection of pre-loved dresses, suits, accessories, decorations and gifts, the two-day event showcases wedding ideas that won’t break the bank while being kind to the environment.

“Upcycling is a great way to ensure your wedding is uniquely you,” said Kerrie Meehan, Vinnies Retail and Enterprise Manager for the region.

“We’ll show you ways to get creative with recycled materials – from using artificial flowers for an eco-friendly bouquet that won’t wilt, to creative table decorations using preloved crockery.”

“I think savvy couples are increasingly finding ways to hold weddings with a social conscience. By sourcing outfits and décor from Vinnies, you’re not only reducing your impact on the environment and reducing the cost of your special day; the money you spend supports Vinnies’ programs for people facing hardship,” said Ms Meehan.

Vinnies’ Upcycled Wedding Weekend takes place on Saturday 7 September from 9am to 3pm and Sunday 8 September from 10am to 3pm. Vinnies Picton is located at 13 Colden Street, Picton.
