Bridal Shows Help Brides Plan Weddings

By Elaine Henshaw

Planning a wedding can feel overwhelming to some brides and grooms. Where do you start? Do you start with invitations or a color scheme? How do you find out about wedding reception venues? For those who are trying to plan a wedding while juggling work, families and other events, a Bridal Show can be a great starting point that answers a lot of questions.

Bridal shows generally take place twice a year, in the spring and fall, or winter and summer. The goal is to gather experts and vendors from every aspect of the wedding process so brides and grooms can begin to make decisions on invitations, music, wedding reception venues and more.

The purpose of a bridal show is to create a fun, relaxed atmosphere where couples can begin to sample food, look at wedding venues and honeymoon destinations. These gatherings are one of the easiest ways for brides and grooms to get to know the staff and see what kind of service they will provide.

Food tastings are one of the best parts of getting married. People cook for you for free. At the bridal show, bite size samples are available, but once you choose your caterer, they should offer a full course meal similar to the one that will be served during the wedding. Confectioners should have a portfolio of styles of cakes and samples of different frostings and cake combinations. Some venues only work with an approved list of caterers, so be sure to ask before booking a company.

Bridal shows help create ideas for bachelorette and bachelor parties. They let brides view some of the hottest gowns on the market and weigh their options between a handmade dress to recreate a vision the bride has had since childhood or one of the latest fashions available.

Jewelry is also an important element for a wedding. Not just for the bride, but in discovering styles of wedding rings. Flower companies should have a variety of arrangements, from large bouquets, to simple, elegant ones. Color schemes might stem from a floral display. Don’t forget about the photographer. Their skills will create the lasting memories of the day.

Party gifts and favors can be found and can usually be ordered in a variety of colors. Favors can include anything from candies, to seeds for flowers, to engraved champagne glasses. Transportation companies also attend to showcase the types of limos, Rolls Royces, even horse drawn carriages that are available.

These shows are tailored to brides and grooms, so the men can enjoy the day as much as the women. And if the groom has an interest in making decisions, include him as much as possible. There are registries to choose. Meeting a dance instructor may change the couple’s mind as to whether or not they want a choreographed dance. No matter where you are in the wedding planning process, wedding shows can help.
