2. DON’T bring too many people with you.
Bridal shows are crowded, so the less people you have with you, the better. Also, if you have too many people in your entourage, you’re sure to get overwhelmed when they’re each pulling you in a different direction. Instead, bring only one or two close friends or family members you can count on, such as your mom and maid of honor.
3. DO plan your trip out beforehand.
If you already have some vendors in mind, check the exhibitor list to see if they’ll be there. Write down a list of vendors you want to see, and map out your route (if you can). Cross each vendor off as you visit their booth to ensure you hit everyone. Also, make sure to bring labels with your name, phone number, email address and physical address so you don’t waste time writing it out at each vendor! You should also know some basics of your wedding day, such as approximate guest count and budget, so you can have a better idea of what you need and can afford.
4. DON’T forget to take pictures.
The Today’s Bride Show features fashion shows, as well as gown, reception table and cake galleries. If you see something you like, snap a photo (or assign someone attending with you this job)! Later, you can go through these pictures to pick out your favorites, and you’ll have them on hand to show your vendors.
5. DO sign up for giveaways.
Many vendors will have drawings and games where you can win prizes and discounts! It’s a great idea to sign up for these things, even if it takes a few extra minutes (see DO No. 3 about bringing labels!). Also, set up an email address exclusively for wedding-related correspondence so that you can keep all of this information together (and declutter your regular inbox!).
6. DON’T rush through the show.
Plan to spend at least three to four hours at the show. You want to take your time and visit as many vendors as possible, as well as fashion shows, displays, demonstrations, giveaways and games!
7. DO attend the fashion show.
The Today’s Bride Show fashion shows take place Saturday, Jan. 26, at 2, 4 and 6 p.m. and Sunday Jan. 27, at noon, 2 and 4 p.m. Not only do these shows feature dresses and tuxedos from local bridal shops, they also give you a chance to rest and regroup! Shows last about 40 minutes and have first-come, first-served seating.
8. DON’T be shy.
If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask! This is the time to interact with vendors and wedding professionals so that you can plan out your day. Make sure to ask for information you can take home, too, so that you can view it again later.
