Wedding Fair 2019 Season Preparation

We are at the beginning of the wedding fair season 2019! I know how intimidating these events can be.  All those suppliers waiting to pounce on you, ready to tell you how perfect their products will be for your day.  This is all very daunting and Brides and Grooms need to go in prepared.  So I have prepped this blog post to help you make the most out of wedding fairs and extract what you need from suppliers prior to stepping foot into the gauntlet!

Plan what you want included in your day

Planning a wedding?  – if your anything like me, the list of services available leaves me dumbfounded.  Everyone is different and each couple needs to decide what they want from their day.  I recommend a brainstorm.  Forget budget at first just smash a list out of what will make your day about you.  After all, it’s your wedding and every inch of it needs to scream that it is!

Always bear in mind the season your getting married in and plan appropriately for this.  There is no point having a barbecue for winter wedding!

Prioritize

So, you have written down everything you want.  Now its time to out them in order of what is realistically doable and affordable for you.  After all, you don’t want to be paying for your wedding for the rest of your time on this earth.  If your in a position that you have enough for everything you want, that’s great! But make sure you don’t have any regrets of what you have spent your hard earned cash on.

Set a Budget

This will be a guide to what you can achieve for your day and will help keep you reined in.  It is so easy to over spend and at the same time important to have an clear idea of your wedding day dream so you can get as close to its reality without over stretching.  Remember stay grounded!

Do your own Research

Personal Recommendation, is in my opinion, the best way to find a good supplier.  It gives you re-assurance that they are competent in what they do and deliver a great service!  But on top of this, do your own research online, in wedding magazines and look at reviews.  Prepare questions you wish to ask the wedding experts.

Know the Wedding Suppliers who are Attending the Wedding Fair

Prior to going to a wedding fair, make sure you know what suppliers are attending.  You know what you want on your wedding day and have completed your research and now know who you wish to speak to.  The next step is to ask the suppliers at the wedding fairs how to achieve your goals.  Remember only attend the wedding fairs that suit your style.

Wedding Fair Action

You are now prepared to enter a wedding fair.  What is great about wedding fairs is that you will get some great ideas that supports your wedding vision, which is awesome.  Don’t rush, this is your opportunity to speak to the experts in their field and determine if they are the right supplier for your wedding day.  The temptation is to get carried away.  Take away the information and contact details that is relevant to you.

Look for the supplier who is on the same wavelength as you.  Immediately discard the tacky quintessential services and find the companies who “think outside the box”, who is fresh and inspirational.  They need to listen, gauge your personality and find your quirks that will make your day that little bit different and more importantly “yours”. … A company like Dreamwave Events for artistic, stimulating lighting and décor options.

Remember when speaking to wedding suppliers there is always room for negotiation.  But beware – don’t always go for the cheapest price.  In my experience you nearly always find there is a reason why they are cheaper.  Make sure you read the fine print and make sure there are no hidden costs and everything is included that you need.

But do you know what makes a cracking wedding (and what every wedding needs) is the best entertainment you can find.  Of course, I am biased in what I consider the best wedding entertainment available in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk (basically East Anglia!)  Read more about fantastic evening entertainment for your wedding here.

Finally…….Be Organised

A life saver for me when organising my wedding, was setting up our own wedding email.  Myself and my now husband both had access and information about our day did not get lost in translation amongst our other online commitments.  This truly helped with keeping everything separate and clear making the whole planning process far less stressful.

Another tip is to create a methodical wedding day spread sheet of services, suppliers, costs, when balances are due, details required etc.  It can all become over-bearing, especially in the couple of months leading up to your day.  You will be thankful of this.  Trust me!
