Wedding Expos & Bridal Shows

Last Sunday I had the privilege of participating in the Premier Bride Expo at the Renaissance Convention Center at the World Golf Village.  It was a terrific experience all around.  The staff of Premier Bride and the Renaissance were wonderful – helpful and cheerful!  Although tired of the rain & clouds, I believe the weather contributed to the great turn-out since there was no “outdoor play” on Sunday — grooms may have been more amenable to attending a bridal show.

Seeing the excitement of the attending brides and their families, as well as the vendors, confirmed to me the benefits of attending a bridal show.  Brides can wander through beautiful displays of gowns, photography and flowers, view and taste venue samples of food, sample wedding cakes and pastries, speak with event planners and officiants – all with no pressure, just positive feelings and advice.

The show enabled me to spend a few minutes with brides answering questions and hearing their dreams about what they want for their most special day.

I would encourage brides and grooms to attend a wedding show to get ideas and to meet their potential vendors.  Tickets are generally reasonably priced and worth it for the amount of information you can collect in a few hours.  Look for free tickets at local vendors prior to the show!
