10 Wedding Show Hacks Every Bride Needs to Know
Going to the National Bridal Show this September? If so, we have the 10 Wedding Show Hacks Every Bride Needs to Know to successfully own the event.
1. Create a wedding specific email account – Use it for contest entries, vendor communications and even signing up for wedding websites (like Weddingful!). We recommend Gmail; it’s free and user-friendly.
2. Print address labels – To avoid a hand cramp from filling out too many forms, create and print address labels that include your full name, address, email and phone number. Peel and stick and you’re entered to win!
3. Purchase your tickets online – Buying tickets in advance will always get you a cheaper price. For the National Bridal Show, buy tickets online for only $12 (tickets available at the door for $15).
4. Enter every contest – Just because you don’t NEED that $5000 home decor prize from Hudson’s Bay right now doesn’t mean you won’t later. Wait… who wouldn’t need that?? Use #WEDDINGFULxNBS for your chance to win other amazing prizes. Check back on our contest page for more details.
5. Bring your ID – You might win a prize. Have you ID ready.
6. Wear comfortable shoes – It’s true. You’ll be walking a lot. Don’t let your hurting feet get in the way of planning your perfect wedding. Wear sensible shoes.
7. Don’t forget your wedding inspirations – Have your Pinterest app ready to show colors, style and inspirations. The show is filled with experts; take advantage and ask lots of questions.
8. Have your debit / credit card ready: Not planning on buying anything? Think again. With the Huge Bridal Gown Sale happening at the show, don’t miss your chance to buy designer accessories at up to 70% off.
9. Bring your MVP’s – Fiancé, maid-of-honor, bridesmaids. Whoever it may be, only bring the ones that will help you with making decisions. Otherwise, you might leave early without getting any value from the show. Boo.
10. Plan your attack – Check out the vendors in advance and choose your must-haves. If you’re pressed for time, at least you’ll have checked out the ones you really wanted to.
When all else fails, eat lots of samples (kidding!). Come by the Weddingful Interactive Lounge and use #WEDDINGFULxNBS on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram for your chance to win lots of amazing prizes (to be announced soon).
