In a snap🫰 your wedding day is over, so build your wedding vendor team with intention!

Bridal shows are a great opportunity to get some serious day dreaming and planning done in a short amount of time, but with all those vendors and attendants the job can be a bit over whelming.  So we’ve put together some tips on how to get the most out of your time there.

Have a plan

When you first walk on to the bridal show floor it can be a little bit overwhelming. The space is gigantic, the crowds can be crazy and there are literally hundreds of different vendors there that provide dozens of different wedding services.

Have an idea of your the colors you are loving at the moment.  Are you wanting to be a spring bride and planning for possible showers or envisioning your first kiss under the trees as the fall colors change to deep reds and yellow?

What about your budget? Is this something that you and your partner are going to foot the bill for? How many guests are you thinking? A small ceremony with a few dozen guests enjoying an intimate dinner? Or a rocking party with hundreds taking over the dance floor.

It will help you tremendously to keep some of these things in mind.

Enlist your team

Unless you’re planning private and romantic elopement  (which so many of our clients do as well) you’re almost guaranteed to have a “team” or “squad” of people in your life that want to be part of your day and will do just about anything to see you and your future spouse happy at your wedding.

Whether it’s your mom, aunt, cousins, soon-to-be-mother/sister-in-law, best girlfriend or……heck……even your brother or dad!!!!! Make these folks feel special and ask for their help and support. Walking up and down the seemingly endless aisles can be intimidating and daunting to say the least- having people by your side, who love you and have been filled in on your vision for the wedding will help keep you focused and eliminate a lot of the of the extra noise.

Be intentional with your time

Before you get to the show ask yourself the right questions.  In the days leading up to the bridal show, think of what you are going there for. Great questions to ask your self are “What have I already got planned/booked/paid a deposit on?” , “What am I still missing?” , “What is my over all budget?” and “What are my “splurge” items/services?

Pro tip! Three things you won’t regret spending the money on while planning your wedding.

  • A Hair & Makeup Trial.
  • Choosing hair and makeup professionals that are dedicated to bridal makeup.
  • A professional photographer that specializes in wedding photography

By asking your self these questions (and really thinking about the answers) you can save a HUGE amount of time and focus your efforts at the bridal show.

Make meaningful connections.

There will be A LOT of vendors to see and people to meet at Bridal Spectacular Wedding Expo, there is absolutely no possible way you are going to get to know and connect with all of them.  You’re going to shake a lot of hands and collect lots of business and you will probably be overwhelmed and over stimulated with the amount of information you’ll gather as you navigate the showroom floor.

Make the most of your time by focusing on the vendors that meet your remaining needs but are also people you genuinely like!!! As there are dozens of different services offered to brides there are also dozens of different personalities, its important to work with vendors that you vibe with. Those that see the vision for your special day.

We highly recommend that you take lots of pictures to help you remember who does what and what you liked best about their presentation or booth.Makeup In The 702 Lipstick Bar-Casey Jade Photography
