Just Engaged? Bridal Shows Are A Great Start!
If you are newly engaged, then congratulations are in order. Planning your wedding can be a fun and exciting time but you’ll also have to make many important decisions in the upcoming months. The first decision that you make should be to go to a Bridal Show. There you can see bridal shops, bakeries, musicians, photographers, florists and lots of other wedding vendors gathered all in one place. It’s the best way to see examples of their work, taste samples of cakes and foods, and collect brochures and literature. You can spend the whole day walking around talking to vendors and gathering information about their services.
The highlight of these events is usually the fashion show. If you’re like most brides, you’ll want to check it out. But these seats will fill up quickly so plan on seating before the show starts. And if you already have your gown picked out then its a good idea to use this time to talk with the vendors that you are most interested in. Since most brides will be watching the fashion show, you should have their undivided attention. Also if you’ve already picked out your gown and wedding party dresses, make sure you bring a swatch. Many vendors will be able to make suggestions on how best to use your colors in other aspects of the your wedding.
Here’s a couple of things to keep in mind before you head off to your first Bridal Show that will make the experience more enjoyable. Bring the people that you think will help you make the best decisions. Whether you invite your family or your friends or a combination of both, you should surround yourself with positive influences. Definitely wear comfortable shoes. You’re going to do a lot of walking and be on your feet almost the whole time you’re there. Bring address labels with you. They can save you a lot of time when filling out contact information for the wedding merchants or for contests. And bring a pad and pen to take notes or jot down ideas.
And remember to have fun. Wedding planning should be an exhilarating time of your life and a Bridal Show is a great place to start.
