Bridal Show Tips & Suggestions
·Bring the decision makers, ie: Your parents, fiancée etc. - No matter what the decision is, we all feel a little more comfortable with a second opinion. With so many vendors to choose from at the bridal show, you will be opened up to enormous amounts of possibilities and options.
·Come prepared to book services. Many vendors will offer a special discount, as a show special. - Because of the exciting atmosphere at the bridal show, vendors like to encourage book-today offers. They are so excited to be a part of your wedding that most will discount their services.
·Wear comfortable shoes and clothing. - This is a time for you to enjoy yourself and feel great. Walking from vendor to vendor can get exhausting, especially if you feet start to hurt. At the Bridal show, plan on walking and standing through most of the time. Our bridal show is setup to keep you on the go.
·Bring water, gum and mints. - With so many things going on at the bridal show, you may find yourself looking for something to drink or snack on. We recommend bringing some gum or mints. Also, with so much face-to-face interaction with vendors, it is nice to know that your breath is fresh.
·Bring self-addressed labels. - One of the most popular things that vendors at the bridal show offer is a chance to win a drawing at their particular booth. This is a great way to learn more about the products and services that are offered. Unfortunately, you may have to write your name several dozen times to enter into these drawings. Having pre-labelled address tags, you will be able to breeze through this process and still benefit from the vendors offerings.
·Bring your appointment book/pda to make appointments - Most vendors will want you to book a service and it is extremely hard to book a date, if you aren't sure that your schedule is free for that day. By carrying around your appointment book, you will be able to fit a service or maybe even two services in at just the right time.
·Collect information from all vendors to read over in a more relaxing setting, this will ensure that you do not leave a stone unturned. - A lot of people feel like bridal shows are high pressure sales. Some feel it is hard to stand in front of a booth and collect your thoughts about what you really want for your wedding. By collecting business cards, brochures and pamphlets, you will be able to organize your thoughts in a more comfortable setting later.
·HAVE FUN! - This show is made for YOU! Vendors come to make sure that you feel like you are getting exactly what you want.
