With Bridal Season in full swing, we wanted to help all our brides by giving them a Guide to Bridal Shows. 

This will help you know how to navigate the show, what to bring and who to bring! 

Plan Ahead!

  • Make a checklist of services and accessories you need.
  • Make a list of any design questions you have.
  • Research the show’s featured vendors – prioritize ones to see and ones to skip!
  • Pre-register for the event – this often saves you a few bucks!

Be Prepared!

  • Pre-printed address labels are a lifesaver →  
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
  • Bring a water bottle – just in case!
  • Bring a notebook and pen to take notes – take pictures too!
  • Bring a credit card and cash – drinks are often served at a cash bar.
  • Eat a small meal beforehand – but save room for samples, of course!

Enlist Support!

  • Bring a trusted person to help – your mom or maid of honor will love being there!
  • Encourage your groom to join – he can sample yummy food and delicious drinks!

At the Event!

  • Look for and take advantage of special deals offered only at the bridal show.
  • Speak to the people who will actually be involved with your event – sometimes the person at the booth is an assistant or only helping out!
  • Proceed with caution pay attention to which vendors listen to your needs!
  • Be decisive – if you find a vendor you love, schedule an appointment!

We’ll see you at the The Florida Bridal Expo on Jan 27th and Bridal Bliss by The Central Florida Wedding Expo on Feb 24th.
