O Wedding Services
Bridal shows are a win-win opportunity for both brides and wedding profession- als. Brides meet face-to-face with photog- raphers, florists, bakeries, caterers, DJ’s, gown shops, reception hall facilities and much more. Bridal shows give the bride the opportunity to ask questions in per- son, obtain important contact informa- tion, pricing and the full extent of services provided. Vendors, likewise, benefit from bridal shows by offering their products and services to hundreds of brides all in one location. They too, meet the bride-to- be and begin to generate ideas about how they can best meet her particular needs.
Many bridal expos also feature fashion shows that present the latest trends in wedding gown styles, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl attire, mother-of-the-bride and tuxedo apparel. Salon representatives and make-up vendors are also available, ready to provide brides with make-over tips and tricks to fit the look of each indi- vidual style.
Brides are encouraged to fully prepare for bridal shows with a list of questions, referrals or any other information about particular vendors who may have booths at expos.
If you’ve never attended a bridal show you may want to make up mailing labels to take with you containing pertinent information about you and your wedding: name, address, phone, email and wedding date. After attending one show you’ll understand why this can be a time-saver ... most vendors at bridal shows will ask for this information about you so that they may be able to reach you after the show is over. Otherwise, you’ll have to stand at each vendor’s booth and hand write this information over and over throughout the day. It’s a good idea to give the vendors this information. Many vendors will mail out special offers after a show to the girls who attended. You don’t usually have to worry about your name ending up on mailing lists that send a lot of junk mail.
