Tips for Attending our Bridal Shows

 

Show are a rite of passage for the newly engaged and is a wonderful way to meet the top local vendors.  They are fun, inspirational, and exciting, but at the same time can be a bit overwhelming.  Here are some basic tips to help you make the most of your day:

  • Have fun and plan to make a day of it. There are many exhibitors, and you want to make sure that you have time to speak with everyone you need to.
  • One of the best things about a bridal show is that it gives you an opportunity to see what’s new and exciting, things you may not have thought of or considered.
  • Bring preprinted self-adhesive address labels with the following information: your name, address, phone number, email (create a new email address that can be deleted after you wedding) and wedding date. This will save you time and allow you to sign up for drawings or anything you want very quickly.
  • Wear comfortable shoes . . . you will be doing a lot of walking around and standing when speaking to all the exhibitors.
  • Bring along your fiance, a friend and/or family member. It is good to have someone to share the experience with and to offer a second opinion.
  • Many exhibitors offer show specials, so take advantage of them! Be prepared to book with the wedding professionals or schedule an appointment./
  • Enjoy it! Bridal shows/wedding expos are fun! Remember, if you don’t get it all done that day, check our website for another show in your area soon!

 

Come and spend an afternoon with us!  It’s weddings, weddings, everything weddings.

Tips to Maximize Your Time When Attending our Bridal Shows

Bridal Show Tips by Bride St. Louis

Bridal Shows can be fun and exciting, as you put together the pieces of your wedding day.  And they are indoors…where it’s cool!

Many brides tell me that they are thoroughly overwhelmed the first time they attend a bridal show, 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.  Is your wedding date in May, June or September, October? (These are high demand months.)   If you find a vendor you like, and they are available, you better book it now.  Photographers book sometimes a year out, and so do venues.  They can only host one event on any one day, so don’t take a chance and find them booked next time you inquire.
  • Bring family or friends you trust, and whose opinion matters.
  • Invite your groom – but take him only if he wants 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.
  • Many vendors will have SHOW specials.  This is a great time to take advantage of these deals to help stretch the budget.  Be sure to ask questions about their service. Service is what the top professional vendors provide – that’s what puts them in demand.  Weddings are a very personal service, and without GOOD service, you might have problems.  Not a way to remember a wedding.

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