TIPS FOR ATTENDING BRIDAL EXPO:
- Purchase advanced tickets, $20 on-line, and avoid line-ups at the door. We made it easy for you – click right here to purchase now.
- Create a temporary email address to be used while you are planning your wedding. This way you can delete it when you no longer are interested in receiving special offers or hearing from the vendors. A gmail or a hotmail address works great.
- Bring adhesive address labels complete with your name, phone number and new wedding email address to use when checking out vendors. This will save you a lot of time when you enter for prizes at individual booths. Most exhibitors will want to know your wedding date so be sure to include that as well!
- Allow yourself three hours to visit the exhibits and watch the exciting fashion show.
- Ask lots of questions, that’s what the exhibitors are there for!
- Bring your cheque book or credit card in case you decide to book services or hold dates with a deposit. Be sure to check on refund policies before giving any money, and read the contract carefully before signing.
- Collect any information you are interested in – take it home to look over again when you have some quiet time.
- If you cannot attend, send someone in your place to register you for prizes and collect information on services you need.
- Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy!
