Pre-loved wedding gowns is pretty perfect
FINDING something old, new, borrowed and blue will be easy at the North Queensland Wedding and Formal Expo this month.
Leukaemia Foundation Queensland is calling for pre-loved wedding and formal dresses to sell and raise funds at the expo on February 17.
It is the fifth consecutive year that the foundation has sold pre-loved dresses at the expo and Leukaemia Foundation regional events co-ordinator Far North Queensland, Annette Jarrett, said their stall was always a popular addition to the day.
"People can find something and be inspired if they're not yet sure what kind of theme they want to put to their wedding," she said.
"The money is going back into the community and we've also made someone's dream come true to get a beautiful dress, because they can be expensive."
If you have a gown gathering dust at home, drop it at the Leukaemia Foundation, 6/68 Abbott St, before February 13.The wedding expo is on February 17 at The Pier and coincides with the release of The Cairns Post's Tropical Weddings 2013 publication.
