Living sustainably has filtered into the wedding scene and many couples are looking at ways to help the environment without compromising on a great wedding day. As one of the major trends of 2019, going green with an eco-friendly wedding is easier than you might think!

Savvy buyers and sellers are rushing into the recycled market to avoid the financial and environmental cost of purchasing new.

Yarra Valley Estate are proud to host their 2ndEco Bride Market Day, which is an opportunity to help couples reduce their impact on the environment by providing a Bridal Market where soon-to-be newlyweds can purchase pre-loved wedding items that they can use on their special day from recently married couples who are looking to offload their wedding items. 

“Not only are you helping the environment by using pre-loved items, you have the ability to design and create a beautifully unique space for your guests to enjoy”said Courtney McConvill, a future bride and Wedding co-ordinator at Yarra Valley Estate. “As your wedding is probably the most expensive party you’ll ever throw – getting some money back in your pocket after the day is great.

Offering your wedding items to another couple to add meaning to their special day and hopefully giving that item a second or even third life is special too.”

At Yarra Valley Estate; we are committed to hosting sustainable events and love to see our bridal couples embrace our philosophy to Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. Why not reduce your transport miles and attend two days in one with the opportunity to meet wedding vendors and suppliers on the day at the Yarra Valley Estate Wedding Open Day happening at the same time! 

The Eco Bride Wedding Market & Open Day takes place from 11am – 3pm on Sunday 22ndSeptember at Yarra Valley Estate, 2164 Melba Hwy, Dixons Creek.
