Bridal Shows. Are they worth it? Will I find my dream wedding vendor? Do they offer discounts? Will there be free food and drinks?! These are questions that couples often ask when they are planning to go to a show. #bridalshows #weddingvendors #bridalfair #whattoexpectfromabridalshow
Let’s start with the most important thing you’ll get out of while attending an event like this. You get to MEET the people that will be working for YOU. It’s a perfect time to feel potential vendors out and to see/hear/taste samples first hand! Having a genuine conversation with the people you’ll be paying THOUSANDS of dollars is very important. So much better than email or a phone conversation! The free stuff is just an added bonus!! Haha
You may or may not find your “dream” vendor, but at least you’ll get an idea of what most wedding professionals offer. You’ll be able to see samples of a photographer’s photo albums, a videographer’s highlight films and taste a wedding cake from a great bakery.
And who doesn’t love to win a door prize? Imagine winning a honeymoon to Hawaii! Ok not all giveaways are free honeymoons, but you get the idea. Some prizes may include huge discounts from vendors, free services, and money!
Oh, and did I mention the free food, the drinks, and live music?! As you stroll around and speak with wedding professionals, you can enjoy complimentary champagne and hors d'oeuvres all the while busting a move!
So in conclusion (feels like a H.S. Journal writing, lol) it’s definitely worth checking out at least one show during your wedding planning venture. If you don’t leave with your entire vendor list hired, don’t worry about it. What’s most important is to do your research and hire the team that you vibe with, the team who you feel comfortable with, and whose product you love.
