Wedding Show Tips
You just got engaged and have never been to the Wonderful World of Weddings show before. To get the most out of the experience, here’s some sound advice that will help you visit as many booths and vendors as possible. Plan to make a day of it, so you can enjoy your time at the show and don’t feel rushed.
The first tip is to buy tickets–you’ll save time at check-in! Tickets are available in advance of the show at a discounted rate. On this website, you can also find and print a floor plan and list of exhibitors, so you can highlight those you have special interest in.
On another practical note, wear comfortable shoes—with 175+ exhibitors, you’ll have a lot of ground to cover. With all that walking, you may want to dress light and even leave your coat in the car if it’s not too wintry outside. Don’t worry about bringing a tote bag or backpack to hold all of the hand-outs, brochures and coupons you’ll collect. You’ll receive a goody bag at the door that will do the job nicely.
Bring a notebook and planner, to take notes and schedule appointments with vendors you want to follow up with. Address labels can be a fast and easy way to enter our Dream Honeymoon giveaway and many other prize drawings throughout the weekend. As you make the rounds, keep your eye on the time, as you’ll want to arrive early for the dazzling Fashion Shows at 12:30 and 3:00 each day. If you’ve already decided on your wedding theme and color palette, bring color samples or fabric swatches with you.
One more tip: hydrate! You can have fun and be productive too, because everything you need to plan your dream wedding is all under one roof.
