Congratulations! You got engaged over the Christmas holiday and are offically planning your wedding. Now what?
Planning your wedding can be one of the most challenging and overwhelming projects that you tackle. There are so many details to take care of. You have to pick a venue, entertainment, lighting, caterer, dress and that’s only the beginning. How are you supposed to even know everything you need? Where can you go for help?
Bridal shows play an important role for engaged couples. They give you the opportunity to learn about the latest industry trends, see gorgeous venues and network with professional vendors who know their stuff. There are many reasons to attend but let’s look at the top three.
You can network with other couples and professional vendors. This is a great way to gather information and get some fresh ideas. You might find an excellent referral from another bride. You can tour some amazing venues like the Southern Bridal Show at the BJCC January 11, 2015. A bridal showcase gives you the opportunity to surround yourself with people who are looking for the same answers you are. Don't forget to catch all the shows (especially the fashion shows)!
Most bridal shows have vendor sponsors with multiple industries represented. Not sure about your location? Attend the venue’s bridal show. Need help deciding what kind of entertainment to offer? Speak to one the experienced professional entertainment experts. Most bridal showcase vendors have been in the business for years, and are willing to share their knowledge with you. They have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. Bridal shows are an excellent way to benefit from the professional’s years of experience.
Bridal shows are notorious for having AMAZING give-aways. You can win all kinds of interesting and wedding related things just by going to the shows and learning more about your upcoming event. Like the upcoming Southern Bridal Show, registered brides will be eligible to receive all kinds of prizes. Make sure you stop at each booth to register for the individual prizes as well checking out the big giveaway. You can’t take advantage of the give-away opportunities if you don’t go to the shows.
Brides have enough to do without trying to do it all alone. Come to a bridal show and see what you’re missing. You can always stop by our booth and speak to our experienced staff. We can't wait to see you.
