Congratulations! You’re engaged! And once you’re over the initial shock and excitement, the overwhelming feeling of where on earth do you start will inevitably creep in. That’s where a wedding fair comes in. They are a great place to start and will give you an incredible amount of inspiration with stand out stalls, discounts and plenty of offers available.
#1 Firstly, you’ll get to see first hand the amaing discounts suppliers are willing to offer at wedding fairs
Suppliers slash their prices when attending fairs meaning you’ll save a ton of cash. Especially if you decide to book with them on the day.
#2 You’ll build relationships
If you don’t decide to book with them straight away, you’ll build relationships which could land you in good stead. This gives you a great advantage because you’ll want to choose your wedding suppliers with relationships in mind for example, if a supplier is quite forceful and too full on, it’s unlikely you’ll want to book them, where as if you’ve met a supplier at a fair who makes you feel relaxed and is really down to earth, you can book at a later date knowing you’ve chosen the rght supplier for you.
#3 You’ll save a ton of cash
Booking a supplier at a wedding fair is likely to save you a ton of cash but even if you needed time to soak it all up and decided later, that they’re definitely the supplier for you, after meeting them in peron, building a relationship and seeing their discounted prices, it put’s you in a much better position to ask them for a discounted rate after the wedding fair has taken place.
#4 You’ll bag yourself a few freebies
The amount of freebies you’ll receive will most definitely outweigh the small entry fee. With catering, cakes and so much more on offer, it’ll be worth every penny.
#5 You’ll be entered into competitions with amazing giveaway prizes
So many suppliers will run their own raffles, competitions and giveaways. What you could win is well worth attending a fair. With amazing giveaways from free engagement photoshoots, honeymoon destinations and so much more! You’ll want to make sure your name gets entered into the hat.
