Wedding Fair season has started and I just wanted to take the opportunity to go over a few tips for making sure you get the most out of these useful events.
The first tip is.....Don't be shy! The service providers are there to help. I know a lot of people feel as though when they walk into the room that everyone is trying to sell things to them. I understand that this is quite annoying and very 'off putting', however these suppliers have a lot of experience, as they do their jobs day in, day out (for most of them) and many will have been involved in hundreds of weddings. Whilst they are experts in their chosen field, many of the suppliers are clearly not sales people (i'm sure they wouldn't mind me saying so.....), so if they come on a bit strong i'm sure 90% of the time it's just mis-guided enthusiasm!
Take your time....The second tip I can give you is take your time to look at everything there. Many fairs that I have been to in the past have had stands in some 'strange' areas and I know for a fact that some of the visitors have missed out on talking to suppliers. My advice would be take a look around and get to grips with who and what is there and then take a second look talking to everyone.
Wear comfy shoes...Whilst most places have some areas to sit and rest, not all do and you can't concentrate on what the suppliers are saying if your feet are hurting!
Bring a bag...Every supplier wants you to remember them, whatever they offer, so they will give you things.....leaflets, brochures, samples and cd's are a few of the things that will be handed over to you. These have cost a lot of money (in most cases) and they usually carry a lot of information, which is why you're going to the wedding fair in the first place. So carrying a bag with you will make it much easier to carry this information.
ASK QUESTIONS...I don't mean to shout, I just want to emphasise this point, as I have spoken to couples at fairs and told them a lot of information and hoped that I have covered everything they need to know. I know it's difficult due to all the information being given to you in a short amount of time, but writing down questions and bringing a notebook along is a really good idea!
I am looking forward to all the wedding fairs that we are attending this year and hopefully running into you! If you attend a wedding fair and see us there - please come over and say hi and feel free to bring me a drink.......I'll need one, i'm sure! :-)
