Whether you are a dressmaker, baker, a wedding planner or the bride to be you are likely to find a goldmine of inspiration and innovative ideas at a wedding expos.
Bridal expos are all about showcasing the best of everything the commercial world has to offer when it comes to offering bridal products and services.
They can be a great way of learning about what every possibility exists for throwing a wedding including exotic ideas such as releasing butterflies from boxes, publishing romance novels about the happy couple and renting chocolate fountains.
Bridal expos are popular exhibition and you often have to register in advance to attend.
Each attendee is handed a welcome packet and if you are a bride you may also be given a trinket to make you stand out from the retailers and product distributors that also might be attended.
You should also know that they also greatly vary in size. Some bridal shows are more local and services such as food and cake design are actually showcased as part of a meal.
Sometimes wine or champagne tastings are a part of these events.
However most bridal shows are huge events that must take place in large auditoriums and halls. Some of them are anticipated events that travel from city to city.
These types of bridal shows usually have websites or catalogues you can refer to so you can pick which vendor booths you want to attend well in advance of your visit.
A feature of both large and small bridal expos is a bridal gown fashion show. However if you have already picked out your wedding dress there is probably no need to attend that event.
One big bonus of attending is that you can often pick up most of the very popular bridal magazines for free. As often these magazines are over ten dollars in cost you can save a lot of money right there.
Usually a bridal expo consists of a maze of booths so before you attend you might want to research the expo’s offerings in local newspapers, magazines and calendar.
This can help you navigate your way efficiently through what can be an overwhelming display of goods from hundreds of vendors offering cakes, wedding favors, shoes, flower arrangements, limo services, honeymoon destinations, catering services, musicians – everything that you can find at a wedding you will find in multiplicity at a bridal show.
