Research Vendors Beforehand
At a Bridal Spectacular show, you will have the opportunity to meet with the top wedding professionals in Las Vegas. It’s a great idea to do you homework ahead of time and plan out which companies you would like to speak with first to ensure you don’t miss anyone. Also, be sure to come prepared with your questions so you can start working on wedding details directly at the show. View which companies will be at there show here: 2015 Show Vendors.
After speaking with all of the vendors and seeing which wedding themes and styles you like best, be sure you have a way to take notes 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, many of the vendors will handout glossy brochures and business cards, so we recommend bringing a Sharpie so you can easily write directly on the materials.
Stop by Inspiration Avenue
Be sure to stop by Inspiration Avenue to take a look at 2015 hottest wedding trends. There will be seven aisles bursting with every kind of wedding décor and theme you could possibly dream of. Here, you will also find ideas for beautiful tabletop designs from Enchanted Florist, Jovani Linens and Event Design and Current Events. Please feel free to take pictures of your favorite styles to help you gather inspiration for your own wedding.
In addition, Las Vegas Party Rentals has provided a DIY pin board area at the end of aisle 100 where you create an inspiration board to show the vendors and get their help with your wedding theme. There will also be the LED Unplugged Lounge if you want to take a break and buy a refreshing drink or cocktail during the show!
Don’t Miss the Fashion Show
On both days there will be a designer fashion show showcasing 2015 wedding trends. On Friday the show will begin promptly at 8pm and Saturday it will begin at 2pm — be sure to plan accordingly to ensure you don’t miss out.
