Bridal Show tips that will ease the pain. No kidding, ladies.
Make your own labels (include name, address, email, mobile number, date of wedding, etc) to bring to the bridal show. To get free giveaways, you just peel and stick wherever you want.
If you have already hired a specific professional, save time at the show and move along. You may see work of someone you really like and have regrets at your previous decision.
Some professionals offer special incentives to sign at the show that they won’t offer any other time. Bring your check book with you just in case. Some leave their check books at home to prevent temptation. However, since the cost of weddings is high, it is wise to bring it just in case you’re a good decision maker.
If you are not in the buying mode, take the literature from the ones you might be interested in. My rule of thumb: If you like the professional, place their card in your right pocket (or somewhere special). Place the cards of vendors you didn’t connect with in your left pocket (or other alternate location), When you arrive home, dump the left pocket into the trash. Simple enough to help with your choices.
Now go enjoy the show and just have fun! Eat some cake too!
