A wedding show is an event where couples who are getting married can find all of the things that they need when planning their wedding. Going to a wedding show can be a good introduction to the wedding industry and it is a chance to see some of the key services such as cakes, floristry, bridal wear, photography and stationery. An extensive wedding show may also have more unusual products and services such as vintage cars, chocolate fountains, ice sculptors, magicians, photobooths or marquee hire.
When attending a wedding show it is a good idea to take a list of questions, dates, notes about your budget, ideas for themes or colours and a plan of the main priorities for items on the ‘must have’ list. A wedding show is an ideal first step as lots are held at hotels or other wedding venues and it is a chance to check out the facilities if the wedding show is held somewhere that you are considering getting married. There will be other brides and grooms to share ideas with and lots of companies who can take the time to chat and explain what they are offering as well as offering discounts that may only be available through contact with them at the wedding show.
A one day wedding show can give couples a clearer idea of what their likes and dislikes are as they will see different examples of products and can start to put a theme together or prioritise their spending. It is hard to set a budget when you don’t know how much certain things are likely to cost and so going to a wedding show is a good way to find out. The companies that attend a wedding show as part of their marketing strategy are more likely to be up to date with what couples are looking for, as they will have the chance to speak to lots more people in one day than they might typically get coming in to their business premises. This means that there is more chance of a couple being able to find what they want by attending these events.
