As a newly engaged couple, you have hundreds of jobs to do, of which seeking different wedding vendors is the toughest. Though you are so excited that you can do all tasks with a lot of cheer and without any exhaustion, comparing different wedding suppliers might be at times highly confusing. And here comes in the wedding expo. A wedding expo gives you a fantastic opportunity to meet hundreds of wedding suppliers at one place. E.g. Pennsylvania-based catering company – Chef Exclusive – headed by award-winning Executive Chef Daneyon White, will be arranging a bridal expo on Sunday, 29th September 2013, which is absolutely free if you pre-register and it will introduce you to quality wedding experts offering products, advice or services. You can choose your dream wedding gown and cake, hire the best professional photographer, get ideas and suggestions about venues, decoration and wedding entertainment, and much more at a single place. The organizer – Chef Exclusive – is a renowned culinary arts business providing every type of catering services from wedding to corporate, from small to big and from formal to informal.
However, you also should have some knowledge about how to get much from a bridal expo. Here are some tips.
Make Others Know that You Are the Bride
It is highly possible that you will take your friends and bridesmaids with you while entering the expo. At such times, others should know that you are the bride and should talk to you and not to the other girls. You can have a “bride” tag on your shoulder to make people know that you are the concerned person. This will save your much time and energy, avoiding the possibility of a wedding caterer talking for several minutes to your friend instead of you.
Spend As Much Time As Possible
Don’t attend the expo like you visit a shop you have given your cell phone to repair. Spend as much time as possible there. You might think that you need only a wedding flower supplier, but after attending the expo, you might realize that in fact you need a wedding DJ, a hair-dresser, a supplier of wedding shoes and many such other vendors. Therefore you should keep aside several hours and not a few minutes for the expo.
At most of the wedding expos there are lots of prizes, bonuses, gifts and offers of which you can gain benefits. As far as possible, don’t miss any vendor’s stall and see if they are giving something extra. Many vendors offer fabulous prizes like a week-long honeymoon to Caribbean, a candle-light dinner in town’s best restaurant, and the like. Such offers not only give you the extra benefits, but it is sheer fun of attending the expo, which you should enjoy.
Bring Along Groom-to-be
Most of the expos are focused on brides. Still, there are some areas where it is hard for you to make decisions in which your would-be life partner can help you. There are also certain topics of groom’s interest, from which he can be benefitted. Plus, there are some great prizes for couples too, offered by some vendors which too you can avail.
Leave Stress – Have Real Fun
You might have been stressed by planning your wedding; but remember that a bridal expo is a place to throw away the stress and enjoy. The atmosphere is cheerful and welcoming, everyone is appreciative about you as a bride, there are delicious foods, entertainment and creative ideas around and there is real fun. Therefore, a bridal expo not only brings you all the wedding supplies at one place, but also is aimed at giving you a relief from stress. So, it is better to leave out stress at the expo and have real fun.
