How to make the most of a Bridal Show

 

If you are getting married, you NEED to attend a BRIDAL SHOW, because that’s part of the fun and excitement of getting married.  In addition, you will see lots of ideas that you might not have thought of.  Besides – the right show – can be very educational as well as fun.  And then – there are lots of great deals and discounts offer by participating wedding professionals, saving your money!

Bridal shows are fun and can save you money

Many brides tell me that they are thoroughly overwhelmed the first time they attend a bridal fair, so I thought it might be good to lay out a few guidelines to help you make the most of your time.

  • Before you go – print several sheets of adhesive address labels with your name, contact information, AND wedding date.  Quickly peel off a label and stick it on an inquiry sheet at any booth that you would like to receive additional information.
  • Bring your checkbook – you just might want to book or hold a date.  High demand dates can go quickly.
  • Bring family or friends you trust, and whose opinion matters.  But be careful of the size of your group.  Too many opinions – and you could be overwhelmed with indecision.
  • Invite your groom – but take him only if he wants to have a voice in this part of the wedding planning.  If this is not his thing, don’t torture him!
  • Know what you are looking for and what’s your budget.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothing
  • Be ready with phrases such as, “I’ll think about that.”  And always give yourself a set amount of time and make a decision.  One of the biggest causes of stress in wedding planning is not making decisions on a timely basis…and then things start to really back up and you’ll find yourself in a spin trying to finalize decisions.

Whether your wedding is a few months away or an entire year, a bridal show will help you pull everything together.
