This weekend, brides and grooms-to-be will have the opportunity to attend our biggest and best bridal show yet! The Autumn Bridal Spectacular Bridal Show returns to Cashman Convention Center August 16 – 17 and we have all the tips for you to get the best experience out of the show.
Before the Show
If you purchase your tickets in advance you’ll receive $5 off admission! Simply click here and enter promo code AugBlog2013. You can also preregister online so you don’t have to register when you arrive. Once you have purchased your tickets and preregistered, print out both documents and bring them with you in order to skip the line and head directly into the show.
Create a Game Plan
Since there will be so many different companies available for you meet at the show, it’s a great idea to plan out which ones you would like to see first. And, if you come prepared with your questions beforehand, you’ll be ahead of the game and can start working on wedding details directly at the show. To view the complete vendor list, please click here.
After speaking with all of the vendors and seeing which wedding themes and styles you like best, be sure you have a way to remember everything so you can keep in touch with your favorites afterward. You can simply bring a pen and notepad or use your iPad or smart phone to take notes. Also since many of the vendors handout glossy brochures and business cards, we recommend bringing a Sharpie so you can easily write directly on the materials.
Remember Your Camera
There are going to be so many different wedding displays from décor, floral, photography, venues, a fashion show and more! It may be difficult to remember exactly what everything looked like, so feel free to take pictures of your favorite styles as you gather inspiration. If you also like the décor style of a vendor’s booth, ask their permission to take a picture of that as well!
Have a Chance to Meet to Celebrity Stylist, Sam Saboura!
Don’t forget that on August 17, one lucky bride will win an on-stage bridal gown consultation and beauty makeover with Sam Saboura, the celebrity stylist from TLC’s “Something Borrowed, Something New.”
The last chance to vote for your favorite contestant is Thursday, August 15. Click here to vote now!
