Tips for Brides:
Bridal Show Survival Guide
Whether this is your first Bridal Show or you’re a seasoned veteran, the following tips will help make your experience both fun and productive. This guide will make sure you have all the tools necessary for a successful show!
Establish your wedding budget ahead of time!
Pre-register and reserve your tickets online.
Bring decision makers with you:
For example, your fiancé, parents, or maid-of-honor. No matter how big or small the decision is, a second opinion can be valuable.
Think twice about bringing small children. They are sure to tire quickly!
Wear comfortable shoes and clothes.
This is a day to relax and enjoy yourself. Walking the show floor and standing for long periods of time can be exhausting, especially if your feet begin to hurt. You don’t want to miss any area of our show, so make sure you are comfortable
If you can’t attend personally, send someone in your place.
Consider sending your mom, maid-of-honor, or fiance. They can collect information, brochures, and business cards from all the exhibitors for you look at.
Plan on booking your favorite services!
Most vendors will offer show specials and “book-today” discounts. Many of them book up months in advance, so plan on placing a deposit or making a follow-up appointment with your first-choice business.
Purchase self-addressed labels or bring your own.
One of the most popular offerings our vendors provide is a chance to win products and services at their particular booth. You may have to write your name and address dozens of times. Having a pre-addressed label makes this process quick and simple. Include your name, address, e-mail, phone number, and wedding date.
Don’t forget your calendar.
Whether you keep your appointments in a special wedding book or simply use a smart phone, make sure your calendar is available. Many vendors will want to set an appointment with you, and it is very hard to book a date if you don’t know your schedule for that particular day.
Have a pen and paper with you.
Jot notes on the exhibitors’ literature to help you recall important details later. This can also be a valuable tool in remembering who your favorite vendors are. And be sure to ask LOTS of questions!
Collect information from every exhibitor.
Pick up business cards and brochures from all the vendors you might be interested in using. By collecting their sales pamphlets, you will have a ready resource for organizing vendors and their services when you get home. Be sure to visit their websites for additional information.
Bring a bag or backpack to hold all the literature and freebies. Bring along color swatches if you have them. Most of all, have fun!
These shows are designed just for you. Our vendors come to make sure you get exactly what you want for your wedding. This is a special day for you, and it is our goal to make sure this weekend is fun and exciting for our brides.
