Bridal Show Wedding Shopping Success! The right, the wrong and the upside-down of bridal show shopping.

Bridal Show Shopping - You're Enaaged! Now What? - Part 12 of 30

Since some of your friends are probably getting engaged too, you may have attended a bridal show even before you got engaged. If so, you know the deal: A bridal show is an overwhelming rush of everything you need and don’t need for your wedding. Many local vendors are gathered together for your convenience. But stay alert: Bridal Shows are good sources of discounts–when they are not a great source of confusion!

Even a moderate-sized bridal show will present you with an amazing amount of information. The problem is that it quickly drives most people into overload—“they all seem the same”.  To get the most out of a bridal show, you have to go with a specific goal and purpose “to find a caterer”, “to meet people from dress shops to see who I like”, “to see different kinds of photography so I know what I want” and so forth. Just walking in and trying to see it all is a trap. You may see it all. But it all comes in an avalanche and you will be quickly snowed under.

When you go to the show, know your wedding date. If you are seriously shopping for wedding services, every vendor you talk with will want to start with your wedding date and work from there. Going to a show without a set date is a waste of your time and theirs.

Another point to realize is that bridal shows are a safe haven for wedding shopping. The vendors that commit to do these shows are usually the most established and experienced wedding vendors in the region. Most of them have storefronts and have been in business many years. The fact that they have been around the wedding business for a long time is a solid indicator of their reliability and professionalism–pretty important qualities in a wedding vendor!

At your next bridal show, go with a set wedding date, narrow your focus and have clear goals for what you want to get done at the show. Going to the show with the idea of  “collecting information” rarely accomplishes anything. It’s better to go with an explicit purpose in mind and checks or credit cards in hand. Sure, look everything over. But stick to your goals. And when you meet a vendor that satisfies all your criteria, go ahead and make a commitment to them. Leaving the final steps until later with follow-up calls and follow-up meetings adds confusion, wastes the start you made at the show, and drags out the process of finding good services that you need for your wedding. If you see something that works for you, buy it at the show and check it off your list. Mission accomplished!
