Are you getting married within the next year? Bridal shows provide a great opportunity to check out some of the local wedding vendors such as reception halls, caterer’s, DJ’s, photographers, videographers, florists, bakers, bridal gowns, shoes, honeymoon packages, limousines, and more.
Take the time to talk to the vendors in person about their services. They can answer any questions that you may have. Pick up brochures and pamphlets along the way. Most of the vendors will provide discounts, package deals and booth prizes. Caterers and bakers often provide free samples of their products such as cakes, cupcakes, hors d’oeuvres and entrees. A lot of the bridal shows have a grand prize giveaway.
