Sunday February 26th, 2012 we will be at the Renaissance in North Hills from 1:00pm to 5:00pm for The Wedding Affair at North Hills! We are excited to be a part of this show and looking forward to meeting with new brides. Make sure you come check out our gorgeous booth design and stop by and talk with the ladies at A Southern Soiree! See you there : )
Here are a few tips on how to spend your time wisely at a wedding show:
- Have a Plan – If you are on a tight schedule the day of the wedding show, make sure you come with a plan in hand. Research the companies attending the show and create a list of the people you want to chat with.
- Meeting with Vendors – Once you know who you are interested in speaking with at the show, have a list of questions you want to ask such as: do you have my date available, have you worked at my venue before, and will you be the person I would be working with, if not, can I meet with the person before the event?
- Come Prepared – We LOVE it when brides give us either a business card or a label that has their name, the grooms name, and their contact information on it.
- Create a New Email Account – Create a new email account specifically for your wedding. You will be getting tons of emails from vendors you have met with along with other information regarding weddings. This is a great way to keep your wedding details separate from your work life. Having this email will also allow you to respond quicker to urgent messages and help keep you on track with the planning process.
