If so, Bridal Brokerage may have the wedding of your dreams.
Or, a wedding that was once another couple's dream that turned into a nightmare so now you can purchase it at a deep discount. How special...I guess.
Started in the summer of 2012, Charlottesville, VA-based website Bridal Brokerage currently has a database of roughly 2,500 engaged couples seeking a wedding for a bargain price. Vendors are also listed. I even found two photography deals right here in Massachusetts. Click here and here to learn more.
Many call the concept of buying canceled weddings a win-win for all parties involved. Bridal Brokerage matches couples who've decided not to get married who want to sell the services they've already purchased with budget-conscious couples who don't mind buying a wedding that once belonged to someone else. Bridal Brokerage gets a cut, the couple selling gets some of their money back, and the couple buying saves thousands of dollars in the process.
I must admit I'm still a little skeptical about this new market for weddings.
Wedding planning should be personal and unique to the couple, but I guess that all goes out the window if I can suddenly jump online and get Sally's $20,000 wedding for 50% off because she had to cancel after finding out her husband-to-be was cheating!
Not sure I want that type of karma following me into my new marriage, I'm just saying!
Weigh in Boston.com. Do you think this is a good idea?
