Wedding Expo Tips:

• Plan In Advance – Make a list of what you will need most and what your budget will allow for each item and service. Be sure to leave some room for the unexpected – you never know when you may see something you’ll want to have that you never thought of.• Be Ready To Make Decisions – Bring the major decision-makers to the Expo with you. If you are the major decision-maker, bring someone with you that you can bounce ideas off of. Be ready to book your favorite vendors there at the show. Some exhibitors may even offer day-of-show booking discounts.

• Dress For The Occasion – Remember to wear comfortable shoes. Need we explain more on this one?

* Make things Easier for you!- Create a new email address for your wedding related items- (ex. YOURNAME@gmail.com) This way, you’ll have everything wedding in one place. Also come prepared with self addressed labels (make some to include your email and phone number) There will be lots of raffles at the Expo, and this will save time writing!

• Above all, have fun! Bridal shows may be useful and informative, but they’re also a blast. You’ll have a great time with your family and friends – planning your perfect day!
