Press Releases to Give Away iPad Mini for Best Marriage Advice at Modern Bride Show

Victoria, BC – January 29, 2013 today announced their original and fun ideas for their participation at ‘The Modern Bride Show’ presented by the Just Love Animals Society (JLAS) on February 2nd at The Bay Centre. The event is an important fundraiser for JLA, an independent, non-profit organization that relies solely on fundraising, private donations and dedicated volunteers to continue its mission of helping animals.

UsedVictoria will have a booth set up at the event where they will offer couples ideas on how they can save money on their wedding receptions by searching for gently used second hand wedding items on It’s valuable advice, with the average cost of Canadian weddings coming in at over $20,000 (source: 2012 survey ). It’s also great for the environment to incorporate the ‘three R’s’ – reduce, reuse and recycle into wedding planning.

Last summer, a couple from Ottawa placed an ad on listing the items they needed. They received many donated items and put together almost their entire reception using items they found on UsedOttawa.

“We’re very excited to be a part of the Modern Bride Show,” said Carly Russell-Huntley of “Couples planning on getting married this year can find plenty of items on UsedVictoria to help them save a lot of money, and help put together original, memorable and environmentally friendly wedding receptions.”

An interactive wedding party will be dressed in UsedVictoria wedding apparel and will walk around the Bay Centre throughout the day. Those who give the “best marriage advice” to the UsedVictoria bride and groom will win an iPad Mini.

The booth will also feature a photo setup where brides and grooms will be encouraged to take a photo with a romantic moon backdrop.
