Yes, I’ll be participating in this show and I look forward to meeting all the 2011 and 2012 brides. The show is always a lot of fun, especially winning free stuff!
Bridal Show Tips
1.First thing to do is get a list of the area bridal shows. You can get a list at http://www.crousephotography.net
2.Plan to spend a couple hours at the show, bring your Maid of honor, mom, or groom to help you with vendor questions and information collecting.
3.Bring pictures with you to show to the vendors. This will help them give more accurate price quotes.
5.Don’t be afraid of the vendors walk up and ask questions! They want to hear your ideas. Bring a list of questions so you will be prepared to get great information.
6.Take a folder with you. Make one side for information from vendors you really liked and one side for vendors you didn’t like. You may want to bring a notebook to write down information that is not in the brochures.
7.Bring address labels to fill out those mailing lists, drawings, and special deals a lot faster.
8.Don’t just book the first vendor you talk to. Shop around and ask questions you may find a better fit for your wedding.
9.Find out what vendors are at the show so you can do research on them ahead of time. That way if you like them you can go ahead and book them at the show and save time meeting with them again later. Some vendors will offer specials that are only available at the show so doing your research ahead of time will help you feel better about taking advantage of those specials.
