What to Expect:
Bridal Shows are crowded and loud, but don’t let any of that deter you! Use this time to gather information and enjoy any of the special offers extended to you. I always tell brides to enjoy themselves and take it all in!
How to Prepare:
If possible, find out which vendors will be participating in the show before you attend. This way you are able to map out the vendors you really want to talk to.
WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!
Bring someone with you, but not an entire entourage. You will definitely need help collecting information (and carrying it!). If you take too many people you will probably spend most of your time keeping everyone together.
Print labels with some or all of the following information:
- Phone Number
- Email Address
- Wedding Date
- Guest Count
You will be spending a lot of time writing this information down if not! If you are writing it down, please write clearly. Vendors want to send you the information just as much as you want to receive it.
At the Bridal Show:
If you are provided with a “Bride” sticker, don’t be shy to wear it! It becomes very confusing for vendors to identify everyone that attends.
Don’t feel obligated to take everything that is handed to you!
If you have a wedding dress I would recommend skipping the Fashion Show portion of the day. Use that time wisely and visit with the vendors. Since the majority of brides will be watching the show, you will have a better chance to actually talk to a vendor and it will be a much quieter atmosphere.
