FAQ’s and Tips for Brides Attending Our Show
We want to make our show a great experience for all brides-to-be, and have developed this list of tips and FAQ’s to help make this a productive and fun day for you. Of course, one of the BEST things about attending the show is that you will have the chance to meet face-to-face with a variety of fine professionals – all under one roof — saving you the time of scheduling and driving to visit them all privately. And secondly, all of our exhibitors are required to have show specials! You will save money!
Bridal Show Tips:
Bring a list of your main priorities and visit with those professionals first. You’ll have plenty of time to then visit the other booths and check out the other fine exhibitors who will have those special extras to make your wedding day a cut above.
Wear comfortable shoes, take your time, relax, and have fun.
Look at different ideas and colors and samples. Ask questions and gather as much information as you can.
Bring some pre-printed labels with you that include your name, mailing address, phone number, email address and wedding date. This will save you so much time, and make it so much easier to leave your information with vendors who you’d like to have follow-up with you after the show.
Have a calendar with you for setting up appointments.
Be sure to ask for show specials and what exhibitors are willing to do if you book today. Be prepared to place deposits with those businesses and wedding professionals that you feel good about immediately. This will lock in your date, and you’ll be able to take advantage of the special pricing that they’re offering at the show. Many exhibitors will offer special savings that are available that day . . . and that day only.
Walk the show floor more than once. If an exhibitor is occupied with other attendees keep moving and be sure to revisit the exhibitors with which you would like to spend time.
