We are in the middle of wedding “off-season,” because in the months November through March there typically aren’t many wedding days. Therefore, vendors take this time to get together and host bridal shows, that are both useful and overwhelming to brides planning their big days! In this area there are loads of bridal shows in January and February, and I am so excited to be hosting my own booth at the Sioux City Bridal Fair this Saturday!
Even though this will be my first time at this particular show, over the 7 years I’ve been in business and attended vendor shows I’ve learned so so much! Rather than keep all of that information to myself, I thought a few of my current (and hopefully future) brides would find these tips helpful! I hope you love it!
I have seen so many brides get overwhelmed at shows, because 1) it’s probably your first big experience after getting engaged and 2) the shows are overflowing with talented, creative vendors wanting to grab your attention! It can be overstimulating and sometimes make for a long day when you talk to the majority of the vendors there. There are ideas, information, pricing packages, samples, freebies, photos being taken fashion shows, etc.
Now, before you think twice about even going, let’s go through some tricks that can help you prepare ahead of time. This way you will know what to expect, cut out the necessary distractions, and get the absolute most value from your time at the show! So, read this post, rally the girls, drink a mimosa or two, and have an absolute blast at your next bridal show!
Are you overwhelmed by my tips alone? No worries, I have your back! I put together a double sided worksheet to help you make the most of your next show! Use the boxes on the front to organize your planning (vendors you want to see and your “top three”) and use the back to take notes of all the amazing things you saw! I hope this helps next time you’re at a show and if you’re in Sioux City this weekend, I can’t wait to see you!
