Trawling wedding blogs and banter recently, we were sad to come across some less than positive posts about wedding fairs.
Naturally it got us thinking and we very quickly perked up when we thought about our own fairs.
Planning a wedding takes months and months of planning and organising and sometimes it can become utterly exhausting. Our own weddings were around 5 years ago and the change in the wedding industry in that time is just phenomenal. If anything there’s too much inspiration these days!! Don’t get us wrong here. Magazines, Facebook pages and blogs are great immediate source of inspiration that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home with a cuppa and jammie dodger. However……..
Touch, feel, see, meet and hear.
The biggest advantage in attending a wedding fair is to be able to touch, feel, hear and see your potential suppliers work.
Try on that dress, taste some cake, see a photographers albums and books…… You can begin building a rapport with the people who you may go on to invest in to put your wedding plans into reality. You can’t do that on line -fact. It’s so true that people buy with their eyes but what’s on a computer screen may not be quite the same as the real deal!!
Discounts -grab a bargain!
Many exhibitors use a wedding fair to offer couples discounts if they book within a certain timescale. This is a serious advantage to attending a wedding fair – ker-ching!
Big or small
Ok so we’re biased but one thing we encourage our Brides to do is check out a fair’s exhibitor list first. Big fairs may offer a wide range of exhibitors but in our opinion a smaller boutique fair may offer you top quality exhibitors who are put off by the cost of exhibiting at massive shows.
We’re providing you with something a little bit different at our up and coming fair. Not only have we got the most fabulous selection of exhibitors but we’ve also got I Am Staggered providing Grooms with advice on speech writing, looking good and honeymoon planning. Also we have Kris from Fusion Flowers doing some DIY demos for you to re create at home.
We just love soaking up the atmosphere of our fairs. Meeting and greeting Brides, Grooms, their family and guests. Everyone is so happy!! Our mission is to provide Brides with top quality, independent vintage inspired wedding suppliers in a friendly and vibrant atmosphere.
We really enjoy putting together our fairs and put a great deal of time and effort into them. Most of all, they are for you the Bride and your plans for your wedding.
