A selection of new and nearly wedding dresses, shoes and accessories will be going on sale later this month as part of an event for islanders getting ready to tie the knot in aid of Jersey Hospice Care.

The charity will be holding a Preloved Wedding Fair at La Mare Vineyards on Sunday 30 January.

A range of stalls by local wedding suppliers will also be available, including Samantha’s Cake Design, Paul Wright photography, the florist Ohh La La and DJ Mel.

“Last year we were kindly donated an amazing selection of over 15 new and nearly new wedding dresses, some even with the tags still on," Jersey Hospice Stores Manager, Julie Jubb, said. 

"With dresses as high quality and special as these, and plenty of other beautiful donated pieces available, the idea of a wedding fair came about. We are really excited to share these pieces with everyone and show how second hand doesn’t need to be second best, even for your special day."

Wedding guests will also be able to find something to wear on the racks, from bridesmaid outfits to mother of the bride outfits and accessories, as well as dresses, suits, clutch bags, shoes and more for wedding guests.

"The selection of bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride items and outfits for guests really are great quality too, and each item bought at the Fair, like at our shops, is one less new item of clothing that impacts the environment," Julie added. "It’s also a fantastic way to support the important care provided by Hospice, a service that helps so many islanders through what can be a very difficult time.”

The Wedding Fair will be open from 10:00 to 15:00, and a complimentary glass of Prosecco and nibbles will be available on arrival.

There will be two catwalks showcasing some of the most unique items.
