Getting married feels like breathing new life into the relationship. When couples pour details into planning their day, it personalizing their wedding celebration like none-other.
Design professionals and decor enthusiasts Jessica Gedge and Joelle Segal, wanted to host an event that allows fellow creatives to find items that can put new meaning into spaces, and hopefully change perspective on the concept something borrowed.
The ReBash wedding show, set to take place on April 18 at 918 Bathurst: Culture, Arts, Media and Education Centre from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., will showcase gently used decor for weddings and other events, as well as pieces made by local artisans.
“We think that it’s such a waste…when you do all of these beautiful events…. what happens to all of the gorgeous props after? For a lot of event planners and decor companies they amass a huge inventory of really nice props and unique pieces but (they are) not necessarily used all the time. So we thought it would be kind of cool for people to have an event or a market where they can sell these items, and also maybe give some inspiration to brides who are looking to do some DIY for her own wedding,” Jessica explained.
Those planning to attend can expect to find ‘handcrafted, vintage, or gently used wedding and party decor, supplies, and accessories while enjoying live music, a gourmet sweet table, and a vintage lovely lemonade stand.’ Vendors range from the elegant (inBloom Event Design, Parisienne Luxe) to the unconventional (Big Ass Piñata, Rice and Potato Workshop) to ensure everyone can find something.
On top of renewing purpose for props, ReBash attendants’ ticket proceeds (20%) go towards Second Harvest Food Rescue, an agency that takes excess food before expiry and delivers to 215 community agencies in Toronto, enough to provide 20,000 meals.
The ReBash wedding show aims to change the perspective on ‘something borrowed’, as the creators are hoping those who do attend can apply the changes to their nuptial plans and daily lives.
“We both try to accomplish a lot but not on a huge budget, and not trying to be too wasteful. We know that it’s tough in the wedding industry-it’s your one big day, you want to go all out, but I guess we’re trying to help people realize that there’s ways to have your ideal wedding but not necessarily overspend,” Jessica said.
