The Winston Salem Wedding Market: Spring 2018


There’s a sad moment after a wedding where you realize that you have #allthethings that you bought to make your wedding day beautiful… but nothing to do with it now that the wedding is over. Linens, Chargers, Floral Containers, and even Wedding Gowns are left to collect dust and live a sad life in the closet! Trust me, it’s happened to me. (Literally staring at some leftover wedding decor in my living room as I type this) and as a wedding planner, I see it happen to my clients all the time.

You put so much work into making sure you have the perfect decor for your perfect day – and then poof! It’s over and now what?

But you’re in so much luck! This doesn’t have to happen to you because Starnes & Co. has your back! I am so happy to announce that Starnes & Co. Event Planning is having it’s 1st: Wedding Resale Pop-Up Event in Winston Salem, NC.

This event is going to be amazing, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it and share all the goodies we have in store for you to celebrate your engagement!

So how does it work? I’m sure you’ve got some questions and I’ve addressed some some of them in this handy blog post for you to have all the details you need for the Spring 2018 Market!

What is the Winston Salem Wedding Market?

The Winston Salem Wedding Market is an event created by Starnes & Co. Event Planning for newly engaged couples to have the opportunity to shop for gently used wedding decor in the city of Winston Salem, NC from newlyweds that have recently used those items at their own weddings.

What kind of items will be sold at the market?

The Wedding Market is a place for couples to sell gently used wedding items that they purchased for their special day! Newlyweds can purchase a seller table ticket to secure their spot as long as they have ten or more items for sale. AND guess what? You’ll keep 100% of the proceeds from everything that you sell at your table! Gowns included! Some of the items that you’ll see being sold at the market include (but are not limited to):

  • Wedding Gowns

There are only a limited amount of seller spots available so if you’re interested in selling at the event please be sure to purchase your table as soon as possible.

Where will the event be?

The event will be held at the BEAUTIFUL Winmock at Kinderton in Bermuda Run, NC! The Winmock is a popular Wedding Venue in the Winston Salem area and newly engaged couples will have the opportunity to see this gorgeous space while they shop and mingle with other couples.

What else will be happening at the event?

MORE than just shopping! We’ll have a DJ, Mimosa Bar, Cake Samples for you to taste, Bridal Swag bags filled with goodies for your Wedding Planning Journey and MORE! The best thing about all of this is that you’ll be hanging out with some of the BEST Wedding Pros in Winston Salem, NC (my personal best friendors) as you shop, sip, and celebrate!

What if I only want to sell my Wedding Gown and don’t need a whole table?

No worries! We’ve got a special opportunity just for you. The Consignment Corner! This is where you’ll be able to consign your gown for the duration of the event. You’ll arrive for Consignment Check-In before the start of the event and complete your consignment agreement which covers all the details regarding the sale! Your dress will be required to pass a quality inspection before being sold so please be sure that it’s in excellent, and like new condition before bringing it for check-in! If your dress is sold during the event you’ll get 50% of the sale price and the remaining price will be retained by Starnes & Co. Event Planning. If your dress is not sold during the event it must be picked up by 5pm the day of the Event! (Please remember that this is only if you are selling a gown by itself and not selling other items at a seller’s table.) If you’re interesting in consigning your GOWN only for the event please complete the form here.

What if I’m a Wedding Vendor that wants to be involved?

That’s a great idea! Reach out to me via email at for more information on how you can get involved!

I’m so proud of what this event is going to become and we have so many amazing things in store for you! So what are you waiting for? Get your ticket now while they last! See you there, xo
