First off—Congratulations on your engagement! Maybe you got engaged over the holidays or maybe it has been a “very long engagement” for you! Either way you are probably thinking of or have attended a Bridal Show! We love Bridal Shows, because we get to meet all the couples firsthand and show off all our inspirational wedding pages and Arizona’s Finest Venues all in our fabulous magazine! As Bridal Show veterans we know a few tips to help the couple survive the day of, see below!
Create Stickers with your contact info!
You will likely be entering a handful of contests for everything from tableware to Bridal Day Hair and Makeup! It will go a lot smoother if you don’t have to worry about handwriting all the entry forms! Plus an added benefit – When you come across a vendor you really like and want to pass on your info to them, handing them a contact sticker makes it super easy!
On your sticker include:
Your First and Last Name, Fiancés Name, Wedding Date, Guest Count, Email, Phone Number, Mailing Address, and any info about your wedding that is already known – say for example your wedding venue.
Check out the Bridal Show exhibitor list before you go!
Once at the show you can become very overwhelmed! There are a lot of booths and everyone wants to talk to you! If you and your entourage have a game plan you can easily stay on track!
Bring a sturdy bag or a small rolling cart!
You will receive several complimentary copies of local wedding magazines—including ours! Magazines can get heavy—trust us! You will also receive countless info from various vendors. And if you’re lucky, typically the shows have door prizes ranging from dresses to gift baskets! You’ll want something to carry all your loot!
Looking forward to seeing you the upcoming shows! Come say Hi! We will be at the Arizona Bridal Show on January 7th and 8th at the Phoenix Convention Center and at the Sedona Bridal Show & Boot Camp on January 14th at the Hilton Sedona Resort & Spa!
Have fun and enjoy the show!!
