“The After ‘I Do’ Sale” to take place January 21, 2017

Maumee, OH – January 11, 2017 – Parkway Place is excited to announce that they will be hosting their second Wedding Garage Sale, “The After ‘I Do’ Sale,” on January 21, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in Maumee, Ohio.

Over the last few years, the wedding industry has seen more and more DIY weddings emerge. Cookie cutter weddings have been replaced with extremely personal events that truly reflect a couple’s taste, interests and personality. In order to bring their unique wedding vision to life, many brides turn to craft stores and Pinterest boards – spending plenty of time and money. After the cake has been cut, the photo albums are ordered and households are merged – newlyweds are left with boxes of items that take up space. While all those items are collecting dust, brides-to-be are scouring craft stores and collecting coupons so they can purchase glassware, ribbon and chalkboard signs without going over budget.

“We had almost 600 shoppers – brides, mothers, friends – through the doors in 2016 and we are hoping for an even bigger turnout this year,” said Elizabeth Rairigh, Administrative Director. “We are offering some new shopping specials and are bringing in vendors to help brides brainstorm ideas for their big day.”

Shoppers can choose between two types of tickets this year – General Admission tickets, which are free, and the “Early Bride” tickets that are $15.00 and allow the purchaser into the sale 30 minutes early. The “Early Bride” option also includes a drink ticket that can be used at the Mimosa & Bloody Mary Bar.

Another new feature for the 2017 Sale is the addition of “Snapshots.” Even the most DIY-minded bride has a few things that she doesn’t want to tackle on her own. As they shop, brides they can view three themed wedding day setups. From dresses to cakes and everything in between – these “Snapshots” will give brides a glimpse into what their picture perfect day can look like with the help of talented, local wedding professionals.

Newlyweds interested in selling gently used items and brides interested in shopping for their upcoming nuptials can visit to register.
