Bridal Expo 101

Bridal Expo Assistance
Would you like to attend bridal expos this season but are just not sure where to begin?
The list below will give you some tips on what to do and expect.

Choose Your Bridal Expo Style:
Bridal Expos can be fun for some and intimidating for others. If you want to see all the vendors you can in a few hours, visit a large expo at a convention facility. The larger expo venues will provide you with a vast variety of vendor options to compare consecutively but may not offer as much of a personalized experience. If you find the thought of attending an expo consisting of over one hundred vendors overwhelming, plan to visit a few smaller ones held in ballrooms at local venues. The smaller expo venues may not offer the mass amounts of vendors in one place but will offer you the chance to discuss your wedding without feeling rushed. For those of you that are simply unsure of what their expo preferences will be, try one of each to see which you like better.

Pre-Register:
Mark the dates of the expos you choose on your calendar and don't forget to pre-register. Sometimes pre-registering will save you money if you have to pay to enter (although some bridal expos host free admission) and other times it will earn you free items and extra prizes. Doing this will also assure you speedier entrance into the fun. There are always benefits to pre-registering!

Prepare To Attend:
Pack a tote bag with your availability calendar (if not accessible on your phone), labels with your wedding date, names, and contact information printed on them, list of vendors you are still in need of for your wedding, and your check book if you are planning to book vendors. Don't forget to invite any family or friends that you would like to have by your side for support. Also, check to see when prizes will be announced and when the fashion show will begin.
