Wedding shows and expos can be the best place for tackling everything on your to-do list. Here are a few tips to know before you go.

Create a Wedding Email Account

With the number of wedding professionals you will be communicating with at a bridal show, it’s best to set up an email account specifically for your big day. A separate email will keep you organized and save your personal email from getting flooded with wedding information.


Bring Labels

Almost every wedding vendor imaginable can be found at a bridal show. To share your information without having to write it down hundreds of times, bring pre-addressed labels. Include your full name, phone number, address (optional), and the date of your wedding..


Attend the Fashion Show

“The fashion show portion of a wedding expo gives the audience a live view of what different dress styles look like on different body types, while walking and moving around,” says Karen Lee, president of Florida Wedding Expo. Most fashion shows include a selection of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and men’s tuxes.


Score Coupons to Save Big

Bridal shows almost always offer coupons and discounts for a variety of different vendors. “The Florida Wedding Expo provides WEDs (Wedding Expo Dollars), which are incentive coupons that couples can use toward special offers and upgrades with vendors at the show,” says Lee. Discounts and prizes may vary with every expo, so make sure to check the bridal show’s website before attending.


Lock It Down

If you find a vendor that fits your vision and your budget, it’s best to schedule a follow-up appointment before you leave the show. Vendors get booked quickly. Scheduling an appointment or, if you’re certain, signing a contract at the show will save you time and anxiety in the long run.
