The next largest bridal show in the area is coming up THIS Sunday, February 6th at The Centre in Evansville, Indiana.
Bridal shows are a wonderful way to get excited about your wedding with your mom and bridesmaids. But they can also be a little overwhelming.
Here’s a secret: It’s exhausting for us vendors as well. We talk to so many people that literally, by the end of the day we have no voice left.
Still, your excitement is contagious.
So here are a few tips on the best way to approach a wedding vendor at a bridal show:
Be Prepared: Know that you are going to be asked by every single vendor that you talk to when you are getting married and all the deets that go along. Perhaps you can bring along pre-addressed labels for giveaways so you don’t have to write your name, phone number, email every time.
Get to the Point: Let the vendor know what you are looking for or might be interested. Vendors spend MONEY to be in a show and need to speak to as many potential brides as possible. Save your time and theirs.
Let the Vendor Take the Lead: If you have a good feeling and a good conversation, let the vendor have your information to contact YOU! This puts the responsibility in their hands.
No Pressure: Some vendors offer specials at bridal shows, that is a great way to save a few bucks! But don’t feel pressured. A really good offer will allow a bride to have at least a few days or even weeks to make up their mind.
