Have You Considered to Attend a Bridal Show?
By Terje Brooks Ellingsen
Are You planning a wedding? Why not attend a bridal show? It offers you a great shopping option as a wedding consumer. At this show, you will be able to meet first hand with local vendors all in one day and in one location. You can take a friend or relative with you or why not bring your future spouse?
Before you take advantage of this great opportunity you should first discuss your needs and expectations for your wedding. Write down all questions you might have, so you can be prepared to ask them right on the spot. Some of the wedding vendors will bring samples; for example, most cake vendors will bring a variety of flavored cakes for you to taste. Tuxedo rental shops will have tuxedos for you to touch and see and that is much more real that just a photo in a brochure. Some catering companies will provide food samples also. You may find jewelry, floral arrangements, videos of real weddings, and even be able to try out a limousine.
So, how can you make the most out of a bridal show? Such shows offer lots of free stuff like for example wedding magazines. Pick up some free wedding stuff at the show. Make your personal cards containing your name, address, telephone number and email address to give to the vendors. This effort will save time from having to write and re-write your personal information at each booth. Normally a fashion show takes place at a bridal show and you don't want to miss this event. The line for such fashion shows forms quickly, so be there well in advance.
Most bridal shows arrange contests. Enter as many contests as you can to win bridal packages or maybe a honeymoon. Lots of vendors are waiting to be of service to you and you can have fun even if you don't win. Bring your calendar or a notebook to make appointments with vendors. Many vendors at these shows offer discounts for point-of-sale purchases on the exhibit day, so take money or your credit cards with you. At bridal shows you have to walk a lot, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
