Here’s a couple of tips to survive the show:
1. Before the show, print off contact labels with your name, contact information and wedding date so when a vendor asks you to fill out their info sheet, all you have to do is peel and stick!!
2. Avoid being pressured into a “book me today or lose me forever” discount. Many vendors will offer a show discount if you book that day, but unless you’re 100% sure that this is the vendor you want to use, (and you’ve done your homework) take the time you need to make an informed decision. A couple of hundred dollars saved, could turn into a couple of thousand wasted if you decide later that your rush decision wasn’t a good one!
3. Walk in with a plan. Instead of wandering in aimlessly, know which types of vendors you are looking for and focus only on meeting that type of vendor. Most shows will provide a directory of vendors and where their booths are located.
