Bridal Shows Are In Full Swing
There is a lot of prettiness on my blog today and just working on this post brighten my day!
Over 25 percent of marriage proposals happen holiday season. It is by far the most popular time of year to propose. If you just got engaged, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I wrote a blog post a while back about “12 Tips You Can Do After You Get Engaged” and you can find the blog post here.
With the hustle and bustle of the holidays behind us, January is here which mean one thing…wedding season as well as bridal shows are in full swing. It’s that time of year when couples go into planning mode and start planning their dream wedding. Bridal shows are a great place to start with. Not only do you get to meet some amazing vendors who would love to help YOU with your dream wedding, you will also get some great ideas with all the latest bridal fashion trends under one roof!
A few Tips if you are attending a bridal show.
- Bring a family member or a friend who you value their opinion. They can help you be selective. Leave your clan behind. Too many people calls for too many opinions and this will overwhelm you instead of helping you.
- Bring comfortable shoes.
- Bring adhesive address labels. This will save you a lot of time when you register for prizes at individual booths. Make sure you have this information on you labels: your name, wedding date, e-mail, phone number and venue if you already have one confirmed.
- Bridal shows can be overwhelming, try to have fun and don’t feel pressure to make a decision on the spot. If you like a vendor schedule a consultation with them and instead. Get to know them and their service and make sure it’s what you want.
