The Gauteng Big Bridal Popup Sale
8-9 July 2017
The 8th of July 2017 will be remembered as a breakthrough day in the wedding dress industry for South African Brides! Better known as the all new and exciting annual SALE event namely THE BIG BRIDAL POPUP – and this event promises to “popup” all over SA!!!
The smell of excitement and expectation in the air, along with the fabulous coffee from #UrbanBarista made THIS day, a day to not only remember, but to diarize as your annual GO TO event in future!
Our unique and edgy city center venue #012cental was transformed into a bridal haven with exhibitors showcasing wonderful products and services, creating the opportunity for brides to interact with credible trusted service providers and help them along in their wedding journey!
For a few lucky brides, their wedding planning journey started early with a welcome boost into planning action in the form of AMAZING prizes!
A wedding DJ, CAKE, FLOWERS, VEILS, VENUE, PHOTPBOOTH, VINTAGE CAR, HAIR & MAKE-UP, ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS and PLANNING SERVICES were all up for grabs!
With brands such as Demetrios, Lubello’s, Beautiful, Badgley Mischka, Maggie Sottero, Pronovias and Sophia Tolli sparkling on the rails (naming just a FEW brands form top bridal houses) the choices were endless! Brides had fun with their bridal team with a glass of bubbly in hand of course and had the opportunity to fit dresses in the privacy of their own fitting rooms expertly crafted by #DDZ.
Thank you to all the lovely and happy brides that came to enjoy the day with us! We will see the rest of you soon… watch this space!!! #BigBridalPopUp
MAKING (wedding) DREAMS COME TRUE
And then it was quiet, the very first #BigBridalPopUp event sale doors closed, and we had one task left to do. Give away the super cool inner city space that is #012central (YOU have to follow them!) to a very very lucky girl..
We sit…..we ponder…..we imagine the reaction of the lucky receiver on the other side of the line, expecting her to cry out with excitement and then it happened.. WE cried (real actual tears) instead. When giving away amazing prizes one always hopes that the most deserving person will magically walk away with the prize and so it happened in that way!
The #BigBridalPopUp is not only a SALE, but an event created by two very passionate individuals with a love for making a difference in the lives of their clients and setting the bar a bit higher when it comes to products and events, so being able to give back, gives us the thrills!!
Here we will be sharing with you the story of Ida. A REAL bride with a REAL story. We hope that her journey will inspire you, give you a few tips and be friend to you as you walk the path in your OWN journey toward your “I do’s”!
Be a part of our next Big Bridal popup Sale.

“ …so happy to find a website where I can sell my wedding dress, thank you”
It was something I would send every prospective bride to, easily.
Overall the experience was great!
My mother was fascinated with the exhibitions, she walk the line and had a little chat with each and came back with feedback and business cards. She was very impressed with the class of suppliers and the extraordinary services they provided. Each friendly and patient, and able to answer all her questions. The event also allowed for her to have that, were at other expo's and shows it is always a rush and on to the next person.
What an awesome event this was, we were pleasantly surprised and amazed at what we found at the Big Bridal Popup!!!
“Hi Bridal popup team, I loved every minute of Bridal popup and you and the team was amazing in helping me find my dress. I cannot wait to marry the man of my dreams in my dream dress. You guys made it so easy to search through a variety of dresses and sizes and you made sure that the bride to be felt important and that only she matters. Thanks for everything.”
Loved the private cubicles with seated area for your guests to wait for their runway show, loved the big mirrors inside each cubicle and the fact that I was not standing on a cold floor. Loved the smiles and the friendliness of all the assistants.
My friend, Bella, was amazed at the refreshments and food made available to us, because our fitting time slot was just before lunch. The slices of cake was such a treat and big enough to share. The barista with his coffees not just flirted with my mom and Bella, but also made the best coffee. It is nice to go to an event where we have the option of hot and cold beverages at reasonable prices.
Food was DEVINE & The cake lady had the best chocolate cake I ever tasted
I found my dream dress and an affordable price, so THRILLED!
I advertised my wedding dress on Big Bridal Popup and it sold within 3 weeks! Thank you so much for creating this platform!”
Friendly staff – thank you Big Bridal Popup!
