Bridal show season is right around the corner Lily’s Bridal would like to offer you some tips on how to take the Bridal show to help plan your wedding. A bridal show is not only a huge help for a bride (all of her potential and competing vendors in one place), but it’s also incredibly helpful for the vendors themselves (all of their potential clients in one place).
And there’s really no better way to dive head first into wedding planning. Thing is though, if you don’t know what you’re doing you could end up wasting the whole day. Here are a few tips to make sure any bridal show you attend will be the most useful wedding planning day of the year:
1.) Don’t bring children or a lot of people. This is really a day for research. You’re probably going to have a great time, of course, but you’ll regret it if you went home at the end of the day without any real information. So leave the kids at home (they won’t be able to make it an all-day thing anyway without getting bored and cranky), and only bring those really essential in your wedding planning, like your mother or your Maid of Honor.
2.) Be prepared with your wedding details. You never know when you might be speaking to your future DJ or caterer. Having the details of your wedding figured out (for the most part) will allow you to have an intelligent conversation with one of these professionals. Think about the main issues; how many people will be attending, the venue, the mood (modern and elegant, traditional and romantic, spunky and fun, etc.), and any other details you might already know, like your wedding colors.
3.) Bring a large bag. Almost every single vendor (at least the smart ones anyway), are going to have some kind of brochure they will be handing out. You’re going to want these brochures; they provide all the details of their services. This not only tells you about that vendor in particular, but it also gives you an idea of what to expect from competing vendors. Plus, even if you don’t choose one of the vendors as the show, these brochures have tons of tips and ideas for your wedding, don’t pass them up!
4.) Wear comfortable shoes. If you really want to get the most out of a bridal show, it’s best to be there all day. Many times they have drawings for discounted packages, or even honeymoon prizes! You’re going to be standing in a lot of lines and talking to a lot of vendors, so those 4” stilettos, while fabulous, need to be left at home.
5.) Bring address labels. Unless you want to be spending a large chunk of the event writing down your name, address, email address and wedding date, bring labels. It’ll be a huge time-saver by the end of the night.
And don’t forget to have fun! Get as much information as you can, taste as much cake as you can and enjoy planning your wedding!
