The Benefits of Attending Bridal Shows

Bridal Shows are a great place to visit with a number of wedding professionals all under one roof.  They're fun, festive, and full of great ideas; however, they can also be crowded, confusing, and overwhelming.

Here are some tips that will make your experience more joyful and less stressful.

1.  Wear comfortable shoes.  The longer you can stay at the show, the more you will be able to see and more vendors you will be able to speak with.  You will be on your feet most of the day so dress comfortable and wear comfortable shoes.

2.  You will be asked to register at the start of the show, but you may also be asked to sign in at individual booths.  You can save time by having a special stamp made or print out return labels with the following information:  name, wedding date, email address and phone number.

3.  Have a plan.  When attending a bridal show, have a plan in hand.  If you are there to seek out particular vendors, check out the vendor participation list ahead of time (most are listed on-line) and see where their booths will be.  If you are wanting to take advantage of show specials, bring your check book and the main decision makers with you.  It is also beneficial to bring a camera to take photos of design and decor ideas, and to bring your calendar to set appointments.

4.  You will be receiving a lot of print material such as business cards, brochures, price lists, etc...so instead of putting it all in one big bag, designate a special spot in your purse or wallet to save the business cards of those special vendors you will definitely want to follow up with after the show.  

So now that you have some handy tips to attending a bridal show let's look at the upcoming Bridal Extravaganza.  Find everything you need to plan your wedding!
