So you’re engaged!! It’s such an exciting time and many questions are probably running through your head. Should I get a wedding planner? Should I visit any wedding fairs? Should I invite my mother in law to be? The answer is yes, yes, yes! Well maybe no to the last one! Just kidding, but seriously wedding planning can be overwhelming and we think visiting wedding fairs are an awesome way to make your whole planning experience fun and worthwhile.
Here are our top 9 reasons why you should attend as many fairs as you can!
- Meet Amazing Suppliers
Forget scheduling a million consultations – you can meet them ALL over the weekend! Get face to face with venues, caterers and entertainers so you can get a better idea of what suits you and your partner best.
2. Get loads of Wedding Inspo
You will meet 100’s of vendors and suppliers at wedding fairs – all with their own special and unique touch. It’s the perfect opportunity to see décor, favour or food ideas that you wouldn’t have initially thought of.
- Get loads of freebies
Everyone will be luring you towards their stand with lovely little gifts so why not take advantage of that! From edibles, to helpful planning tools, you’ll be gifted for signing up or committing to their products or services.
- Taste cake. Lots of it!
Red Velvet, Vanilla, Chocolate and Fruit cake. Lemon, Carrot, Coconut and Lime. Pink Champagne, Cherry and Cream, Vanilla and Pimm’s!
Ok, we’ll stop! But with so many flavours to choose from, why not taste them all under the same roof!
- Ask Questions
Going to wedding fairs puts you in a great position to meet wedding experts and ask those burning questions! You can get advice on your perfect dress, event styling and attend seminars designed to help you with your planning experience.
- It’s an excuse to go out with the girls
Grab your bridesmaids (if you’ve already chosen them) and make a day of it!
It’s a great excuse to get together and have a girly day out.
- You’ll be surprised at how many exclusive discounts you can get
Wedding fairs can be competitive for exhibitors so many of them will offer you exclusive offers that won’t be available outside of the fair. It’s a great way to stick to your budget and get what you want for a better price.
- You get to see On- Trend Fashion Shows
One of the best things about wedding shows are the actual shows! Watch stunning brides take to the catwalk to strut the latest bridal trends. It’s a great way to see how dresses actually fit without trying 100 on! And if you worried about your hub-to-be, don’t be! Groomed models also show off the latest suits. It’s your last chance for a bit of eye-candy!!
- It’s FUN!
