Everyone wants a wedding that’s memorable and straight out of a fairy tale. But in today’s day and age, no one has the time to spend months bringing this mammoth event together. That’s where wedding exhibitions step in. Simply put, a wedding exhibition is where you come face-to-face with wedding planners, vendors, trousseau designers etc. bridal outfit designers, jewellers and all the talented wizards who can ensure your big day is truly magical. It is your one-stop shop for all things “wedding”.
However, where there is variety, confusion follows! Given the seemingly infinite number of vendors vying for your attention, how do you decide what you want? Here’s how:
Top Tips To Get What You Want At Wedding Expos
1. Understand the offerings:
Some wedding exhibitions are boutique-style with very niche vendors, while others are mega events with endless options. Decide the kind that caters to your specific requirements and pick on the expo accordingly.
2. Ask for a list of the vendors:
When it comes to wedding shopping, the couple is always short of time. One of the smartest things you can do is – ask the organiser to showcase the vendor list at the event. This way, you can research them and shortlist the ones that you might be interested in. Planning ahead will help you optimise time slots and get the most out of the event.
3. Arrive early:
Maybe going to a party late is cool. But wedding exhibition? Never! Going in early means you can speak to vendors at leisure and skim through the photographs/catalogues and designs offered by them minus the rush. As the crowds come in, clear communication is a struggle. Thus, defeating the purpose of your visit.
4. Pick wise:
Instead of randomly collecting cards, focus on 3-4 vendors who are of your interest. Get the approximate quotations and important pointers listed at the back of the cards for easy reference once you reach home.
However, when it comes to choosing your bridal outfit, you are going to be spoilt for choice. So take your time, weigh all your options before you finalise your look for the D Day.
5. Bookmark now, visit later:
Do not get carried away by the stand displays alone, always schedule a follow-up meeting after the event, especially if you’re customizing something. Make it a point to personally visit the vendor’s office and have a detailed Q&A session before taking any decisions.
A wedding exhibition is just the perfect place to find unique options of wedding planners, choreographers or trousseau packing experts who can you reach out to later as well.
6. Chalk what you want:
Oversharing is a good thing when it comes to wedding exhibitions! The clearer you are about your vision, the better will be the execution. Divulge all the minutest of details to ensure you ONLY pick pieces that you always imagined. And NOT the ones that look good at the venue but don’t meet your criteria.
7. Be comfortable:
Wear clothes that are easy to take off in case you need to try out an outfit. This will help save time and effort, leaving you with more time at hand for other activities.
