There are a few elements of your wedding that you simply cannot pick out at a bride show. These generally include: the church or ceremony site, the day you’re having your ceremony, your bridesmaids and groomsmen, your guests, and of course your groom! However, all of the other goods and services you need to create the perfect wedding can be found in abundance at bride shows. So, if you have been thinking about attending a bride show, think no further and attend! It would behoove you to have chosen your wedding date and the location of your ceremony beforehand, but to have an open mind about everything else.
The best way to approach a bride show is to evaluate all that is available to you before you become too attached to any particular photographer, entertainment, cake, or floral theme, etc. Having multiple vendors in all of these professions together under one roof gives you an unparalleled chance to compare products and prices. If that sounds overwhelming, glancing over this checklist ahead of time is a good way to get a framework for the types of services you will see offered: www.bridesworld.com/pdf/wedding_checklist.pdf.
Besides vendors and information, did you know bride shows are also full of opportunities chances to win prizes? And most bride shows have runway shows where you can observe the latest styles in wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. Many also have trunk shows where you can see and try on dresses that you wouldn’t ordinarily see at the dress store, and you can talk to designers about how to customize any dresses that you really like. What I’m saying here is in addition to all of the useful wedding planning information, there is fashion, shopping, discounts, and prizes. So basically, bride shows are a clever way to get your wedding chores done while having a great time!
