Just like you, the co-owners of the Wedding Flea Market, Jodi Colella and Bethany Lentz, started out as brides. Jodi, the founder, recognized that selling left over wedding items was a necessity for newlyweds. However, no platform existed specifically for this purpose, and she decided to create one. What started as a Facebook group in 2012 for bride-to-bride sales was quickly turned into a live event. Beth met Jodi at the first live event and offered her expertise in marketing to help build the Wedding Flea Market into the huge success that it is today.
The dynamic duo has been collaborating since 2015 to bring newlyweds and brides-to-be together. Their teamwork has allowed thousands of couples to get amazing deals and save money on their wedding. The Facebook group continues to grow and each live event sells out quicker than the one before. The expansion of the Wedding Flea Market has allowed Jodi and Beth to truly fulfill their mission to help newlyweds and brides-to-be buy and sell gently used wedding items.
Although both women are Pittsburgh natives, they hope to use this concept to help couples across the nation create budget-friendly dream weddings. They love seeing how their dream has resulted savings and success for thousands of people. Many fans have showed their appreciation through five-star Facebook reviews like this one: “I absolutely love this event. The sellers were so polite and everyone was so helpful.”
On that note, let’s cheers to, “Love, laughter, and happily ever after.”
