  • Bridal shows can be completely and totally overwhelming – but they can also be useful. If you are on the hunt for vendors, but don’t know where to start bridal shows and event space open houses can be a great jumping off point.

    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.
