Newly engaged and wanting to start your perfect wedding planning?
Looking to attend a few wedding showcases but unsure of what to expect?
We have put together 5 top tips for you to help you
prepare for your first wedding showcase experience,
helping you gain more out of your visit.
STEP 1 – DO YOUR RESEARCH:
If you walk into a wedding show blind it can all get a little too much. Always have a list of the aspects of your wedding you still need help with to hand so you know exactly what you need to look for on the day. To make it even easier, be sure to check the shows website a few weeks before so you can find out who is exhibiting and what they offer, that way you are able to make a list of all the tables you would like to see and can go straight to them when you get there saving you loads of time to ask the right questions and gather more information on venues suited to your needs only. Some shows to offer maps either on or before the day, be sure to print this out so you can map your path and make it easier to find the vendors you are looking for.
STEP 2 – PROVIDE YOUR OWN CARDS/ADDRESS LABELS:
No matter what you are enquiring about, all exhibitors you enquire with will ask for the same details. If you have cards written out already it saves you the hassle of having to write the same thing repeatedly. Make sure to have the bride and grooms’ full names, email address, mailing address and wedding date written out so you can just hand this over to them when they ask.
STEP 3 – BRING A LARGE BAG :
You will need it to put all of the wedding information, brochures etc you receive throughout the day in, along with the few goodies and chocolates you may be able to pick up on the way round.
STEP 4 – BRING PEOPLE WITH YOU:
Whether it is your husband/wife to be, some family members or a few of your close friends, it is always good to have someone with you for that all important second opinion. They can be there to bounce of ideas with or to help carry all you have collected. Its always good to have some extra support.
STEP 5 – FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT:
Because these are incredibly important. More often than not, the vendors you meet at wedding shows will be the ones you keep in contact with, should you decide to go ahead, all the way through to your big day so how they welcome you and their body language is a good indication of the service you will receive. Those who are smiley and friendly are often the ones who will be the most reliable and supportive and will be incredibly attentive making sure you are happy and you enjoy your big day.
