Bridal Show Tips for the Bride-To-Be

Attending a bridal show can seem overwhelming, so we have put together some tips to help make this a great experience for you. First and foremost, a bridal shows gives you face to face time with hundreds of wedding professionals.  Here are seven of our top recommendations on how to prepare yourself for a fun filled day of wedding planning!

Bridalrama Showcase at the Duke Energy Convention Center
  1. Pre-print address labels with your name, e-mail, phone number, and wedding date.  This will save you so much time when you are visiting with the vendors.  Instead of having to write all your contact information over and over again, you will be able to spend more time learning about what each vendor has to offer you.
  2. Be open to services that will enhance your wedding planning experience.  One of the best things about a bridal show is that it gives you an opportunity to see what’s new and exciting, things you may not have thought of or considered.  Make a list of what you will need most and what your budget will allow for each item and service. Be sure to leave some room for the unexpected – you never know when you may see something you’ll want to have that you never thought of.
  3. Create a separate e-mail account strictly for bridal shows. This is a great way to keep all your wedding information in one central location without bogging down your personal or work email.
  4. Sign up for the free giveaways. Most vendors will have you sign up for some type of giveaway.  Just because you already have a photographer or florist does not mean you should skip right by them.  They may be giving away a gift card or cash!
  5. Already have your wedding gown? Skip the fashion show! Visit the vendor booths during the fashion show to forgo the crowded aisle ways.  This will also give you more face to face time with a vendor you want more information from.
  6. Bring your calendar book (or iPhone or Blackberry) with you.  Regardless of you coming in with the mindset of only gathering information, you will probably connect with a few vendors instantly and want to schedule a follow up meeting.  
  7. Prepare for INFORMATION OVERLOAD! When you are finished talking with each vendor, write something about him/her that stuck out to you on their business card or literature. For example, if you liked a particular florist, make a note as to why you liked him/her. This will ensure that when you get home and start to sift through all the papers, you will have some type of reminder as to why you connected with some but not so much with others.

We would love to hear some of your bridal show tips. What worked for you to make a bridal show successful?

Simply Events will be a vendor at the Bridalrama Winter Showcase on February 9 & 10, 2013 and we have FREE tickets!

Galvin+Johnson Wedding Reception

Simply Events recently had the privilege to work with Matt and Lori.  They are such a beautiful couple, and the love they have for each other was breath taking.  The couple married in St Lucia, and then blessed their loved ones with a reception closer to home.  Their venue of choice was the beautiful Metropolitan Club located in Covington, Ky. 

The couple decided to bring a little piece of the beach home with them to share with friends and family who were not in attendance for the ceremony, and thus decided on a beach theme reception.  It was so much fun to turn the couples dream of a "beach theme" reception into reality. 

Upon arrival guests were encouraged to leave a special message for the bride and groom and place it in a glass bottle.  We at Simply Events love tying in the small details that in return make a huge impact on the over all event. 

The tables throughout the reception were breath taking with the sea blue pops of color, and the minimalistic "beach" centerpieces.  They all added just enough to make guests feel as though they too had traveled to St. Lucia with the couple. 

One of our favorite aspects of the table decor was the chalk board table numbers.  They were such a creative accent, and piece of conversation. 

The couple chose to dine at a beautifully adorned sweetheart table.

The mini cakes were the perfect touch to the already beautiful reception. 

The reception was so much fun, and lasted well into the night thanks to an amazing dj, and wonderful guests.  Thank you so much Lori and Matt for allowing Simply Events to be a part of your special day.  We wish you nothing less than a life time of happiness and love.
