Top tips for Surviving Wedding Shows

Research – Before you go along to a show, take a look at the website, and see what’s going to be there, and what’s going to be on offer. As you don’t want to get there and it is a waste of time.

Plan the day- Visit the stalls that are most important to you, whether that be you need inspiration for your dress or ideas for food.

Take friends and family- Having your friends by your side or your family members can be a big help, they can give advice and support you.

Pick up everything- Every leaflet, brochure, and a good bag, take as much in as you can, these shows can help a lot in terms of finding a good photographer or the perfect venue. We all love a freebie!
