TIPS FOR ATTENDING WEDDING FAIR
Plan to spend at least two to three hours at the Fair allowing time to view the fashion shows which are normally about thirty minutes long
Prepare address labels in advance, which are handy when entering for the prize draws that may be offered by the vendors. This will again save you time and ensure that the vendor will be able to easily read the information should your name be dawn. Be sure to include all your contact information, name, telephone number, email address and the date of your wedding.
Consider creating a separate email address to be used during the planning process. After the wedding, simply have it removed and there will have been no confusion with your regular email.
It’s going to be a long day so wear comfortable shoes.
You’ll be talking to many exhibitors so it is important to carry a notebook to jot down information and ideas they will share with you. At the end of the day or the week following, you can review this information and follow up where you think appropriate and particularly helpful.
Often exhibitors will discuss a special offer only available at the show. If you are interested and think it might be beneficial, you may be required to provide a deposit so bring your chequebook. By the way, make sure you read the fine print and know what type of commitment you are making before signing anything.
This applies to the many draws you may be entering. Make sure you know the details of the draw so that you are not making a commitment to something you may regret later.
You’ll find it helpful to bring along swatches of the colour scheme you have chosen. This makes it easier when talking to vendors and coordinating colours for décor and other needs.
If you are not able to attend a wedding show, send a member of your wedding party or family to gather the information for you. They can also enter the draws on your behalf so you are not missing out on some of the prizes.
If you take advantage of some of these ideas, you will find attending a bridal show to be a rewarding experience.
