Pinterest boards might well be an invaluable source of inspiration for modern brides-to-be, but one should never underestimate the importance of a wedding fair. Offering a priceless visual and tactile experience to help couples pick their wedding elements, bridal shows are a rite of passage for every future bride and groom. Wondering if it’s worth your time? Here are eight things you are likely to expect at a wedding fair. 

1. Lots and lots of people

Depending on the size of the fair, the number of visitors may vary from hundreds to thousands.  Enjoy the energetic buzz and let yourself caught up in the general excitement.

2. Delicious food samples

Food is a key element to memorable weddings hence the attempts of local food caterers to entice you with delicious and glorious-looking samples. Hopefully, the free canapés and miniature cakes you will be tasting can help you choose the caterer who will “design” your wedding food.

3.  Dreamy Wedding Gowns

In terms of styles, trends and cuts, you will find everything your bridal heart desires. Plus, most designers and gown salons are likely to offer special pricing on orders placed during the fair. Tempting, right?

4.  Vendors Galore

Bridal shows typically showcase vendors from every possible wedding niche, from florists to jewelers to photographers. Prepare to be overwhelmed. 

5. Sweet Wedding Details

The amount of details you will find at such a fair is surreal. There will be so much information to soak up (décor ideas, theme trends, you name it, it will be there), that you’d better bring a camera to snap every single item that catches your eye.

6. Prizes and giveaways (yay!)

This is undoubtedly one of the most exciting features of a wedding fair. Since there will be raffles for everything (think wedding photography sessions, gorgeous gowns, makeovers, etc.), make sure you register everywhere to increase your chances of winning.

7. A Glam Fashion Show

The highlight of every wedding fair is the bridal fashion show where you will find style inspiration and outfit ideas for yourself and your entire wedding party. The hottest trends will be brought to life featuring gorgeous bridal collections from prestigious boutiques and designers. Heaven.

Now that you know what to expect, you are ready to attend the next wedding fair in your area. Take it as a fun outgoing with amazing and unexpected benefits and enjoy every minute of it!
