Bring your wedding binder and a tablet and pen to take notes and gather information for all of the wedding professionals you will meet.
Bring a sheet or sheets of labels with your name, address, phone number, email address, & wedding date printed on them. You will have many opportunities to win prizes. Having labels ready will save time, and your hand, from filling out all of those entries.
Create a new email address. If you haven't done so already, open a free email account and use it only for your wedding. This way all of your wedding information and offers will be in one place and you won't have to worry about receiving wedding information for years to come as you can simply cancel the account after the wedding.
Bring friends, family, & wedding planner!
The more eyes you have working on your behalf, the more it will ensure you don't miss anything.
Wear comfortable shoes. Plan to spend several hours at the show.
Be prepared to make a deal. You can expect some wedding professionals to offer "show specials" if you book with them the day of the show, or even within a few days or weeks afterwards.
Come just a little bit hungry. Bakeries, caterers, and venues will offer samplings of their sweets and savories.
