Getting hitched doesn’t have to break the bank
CLT Wedding Flea market for attire, gifts

CLT Wedding Flea is a one-stop flea market for wedding attire.

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes spending money that you may not have on things you will use only once.

Sara Kay Mooney and Kacie Johnson planned their weddings on teacher’s salaries, which given the state of teacher pay, should tell you all you need to know. However, after they both tied the knot, their carefully picked out wedding décor became nothing more than space consuming, dust collecting stuff in a closet.

Enter their solution—CLT Wedding Flea. On June 3 at Project 658 (3646 Central Ave.) from 10-2 p.m. past and future brides and grooms will gather to sell and shop.
In 2014, the average wedding dress cost $1,357—four percent of the average wedding, which ran $31,213 according to TheKnot. That’s just the dress, and that was three years ago. Since then, the numbers seem to keep going up.

CLT Wedding Flea offers a place for those recently or soon to be married to purchase his or her thank you cards, centerpieces, table linens, bridal shower decor and any other number of wedding essentials.

Note: $5 shopping admission and $20 to rent a table to sell items (nonrefundable and vendors keep 100 percent of his or her profits). Vendor tables must be reserved by May 26.

Register to shop or sell online at: www.eventbrite.com/e/clt-wedding-flea-tickets
