How to Get the Most Out of a Wedding Expo

Mar28

Because it would take months to meet all of the various vendors you will be in contact with at a 2011 wedding expo, there is no doubt that they provide a huge advantage when it comes to the learning curve inherent in planning a wedding. Here are a few helpful hints when considering a bridal expo:

Choose a wedding show that is in the proximity of your geographical location. If you are getting married in the wine country of Northern California, an Orange County bridal fair is mainly going to showcase vendors within the Los Angeles and OC area.

There are typically two types of bridal fairs—mega fairs and boutique fairs. A mega fair is a huge event, typically held at a hotel or convention center. A boutique wedding expo is usually sponsored by a particular vendor or wedding location. The type of fair depends on the bride—if you do not like big crowds or feel overwhelmed when there are too many choices, consider going to a boutique bridal fair. You will still get a feel for different vendors. You just won’t feel quite as overwhelmed.

Bring a notebook and be inquisitive. Ask as many questions as come to mind, and write them down in a notebook as you think of them. Asking questions is the best way to use the wedding planning services you encounter at a bridal fair.

Excellent advice for brides. As a photo booth vendor it is important to us that we are talking to brides that live in our area. It is not fun for us or the bride to find out we don't work in their particular area. We have done both the mega shows and the boutique shows and have found that the mega show gives the bride a lot more choices in one spot. However, the boutique shows give the bride a lot more time to get to know and get comfortable with a particular vendor early in the process. Either way, brides need to ask LOTS of questions. We welcome questions as do most vendors, do not hesitate to ask everything you can think of. This makes the process a lot easier as your big day gets close.
