MEET THE EXPERTS
Interview multiple vendors in one afternoon!
At the Wedding Expo you’ll be able to interview multiple wedding photographers, bridal salons, florists, caterers, wedding and reception sites, DJs, bakeries, and more — all in one fabulous afternoon. The show gives you the ability to compare prices, style and personalities right there on the spot. Ask questions and look for that special connection with your favorite company and then don’t hesitate to book them because their calendars usually fill up fast!
Get a closer look at what the vendors can do for you! Stroll through the wedding photography booths to get an idea of who will capture your style and character best. Choose a photographer you feel you connect with and who’s art you like the best.
SHOULD I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME TO THE EXPO?
Yes! Your fiancé, family members, wedding party, and friends can be a great asset to you as you plan your wedding. They can collect information, provide valuable input, give you support, and assist in decision making. Over 50% of our brides bring several guests with them. Even if you can’t attend, please send anyone you wish to collect information for you, the show is completely open to the public.
The smartest thing you can do at an expo is book wedding vendors on the spot to take advantage of special discounts that may be expo only. The next smartest thing is to book as many one-on-one consultations after the show as you can. Sometimes, if you show the vendor you are genuinely interested in them by booking a consultation, they will extend their expo special until you meet again. It’s a neat trick to allow you time to consider your options and still get a deal.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE EXPO
Pre-Printed Address Labels/Business Cards are a definite time saver : Many of the vendors will ask you for contact information to enter you in drawings to win extras for your wedding day. Filling out your name and phone number over and over can get tiring. Be sure to register with everyone so that you will be eligible to win the great prizes they give away. This also assists the vendor in following up with you.
CHECKBOOK : Some vendors offer special show discounts if you book them the day of the show. Keep in mind certain vendors can only handle one wedding per day and their date books fill quickly. For that must-have vendor, be ready to reserve your date!
CALENDAR : You will want to bring a calendar with you so you can make appointments with the businesses that you have an interest in. Remember that the show is a bit overwhelming so as we said before you will want to schedule as many one-on-one consultations after the show as you can… One decision at a time and your calendar will help you keep all of your appointments in order.
HOW MUCH LITERATURE WILL I RECEIVE AT THE EXPO
You will acquire a lot of information from the show which is really wonderful. With so many vendors, expect a lot of material to be offered to you. Take what you want and what you feel you will need to make an informed decision about that company.
Ask for price lists as well. You may also want to use a two bag system giving you the ability to sort the information you want into two bags of interest. Keep both so you will have access to everyone’s material for comparison.
