Identify Your Objectives

Are you looking for inspiration? Need a specific vendor?  Knowing what you want to take out of the show will help you stay focused and avoid getting overwhelmed. 

Allow Yourself to Window Shop

Remember to keep an open mind.  Does a certain aesthetic appeal to you? Vintage, Glam, Rustic?  Have fun browsing the booths that catch your eye.

Engage!

Talk to booth reps & ask questions. 

  • What is their experience / training?

  • How long have they worked with the company?

  • What motivates them?

Book An Appointment

DON’T feel pressured to sign a contract on the spot but DO book a follow-up meeting within the next few weeks to chat one-on-one.

Getting Down to Business

Found a vendor you just HAVE to have on your wedding day?  ASK these questions:

  • Are they available for your date?

  • What are their contract terms?

  • What are the payment terms and will you require a deposit and/or a payment plan?

  • Will you be provided with a full quote or an estimate?

 

Have Fun & Enjoy the Experience!

Sign up for contests, sample the wares, and take in the presentations.  The Wedding Show is an exciting event, so make sure to soak it all in and enjoy yourself!
