The January 2013 Bridal Bazaar was one of our best shows ever with over 300 exhibitors and thousands of attendees eager to do some serious wedding shopping.   Here are some scenes from the show....

The Bridal Bazaar is just days away and while exhibitors are baking cake samples and putting the final touches on their display plans, brides and grooms might want to spend a little time getting ready for the show too!  Here are tips for making the most of the show...

  •  If you don't have one already, set up a wedding email account to give to prospective wedding vendors.  Having a special account will mean your wedding-related emails won't clog up your regular account and will be waiting for you when you are ready to work on your wedding.

  •  Bring pre-printed address labels or slips of paper to the show.  Including your name, wedding date and contact information will make leaving your information with prospective vendors much faster and easier.

  •  Have a shopping list in mind.  Although part of the value of a bridal show is walking through all the exhibits to get new ideas, if you are looking for particular products or services make sure you focus on meeting those vendors.  

  • Wear comfortable shoes!  You wedding may be formal but planning it needn't be.  The Bridal Bazaar has a fun, upbeat atmosphere so be yourself and enjoy it.

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday, January 20th, at the Convention Center!
