Tips attending Enchanting Bridal Show


He popped the question, let the planning begin. This is one of the most exciting times of your life and we are here to help you plan your dream day together! Vendors in our show have been hand selected because of their experience, dedication and desire to provide excellent service to our brides! Come & join us and be inspired by the latest trends in decor, bridal fashions, accessories, sampling decadent wedding cakes and winning fabulous prizes throughout the day! In addition, we have compiled a list of what we believe are some very helpful tips for attending our show!


  • Bring to the show a list of your main priorities and focus on these to maximize your time
  • Wear comfortable shoes, relax and take your time.
  • Have your calendar with you for setting up appointments.
  • Bring pre-printed labels! Nearly every vendor will ask for your name or invite you to enter a drawing for their special gifts and prizes. Having these labels will save you from having to write down your name and number fifty or sixty times.
  • Remember your checkbook or bank card! Book deposits with those companies that you feel good about. Your date may or may not still be available to them after the show! Many exhibitors offer a Discount & Show Special¬Ě which may require a small deposit!
  • You’ll want to allocate between 2 and 4 hours of your time so that you may visit with as many exhibitors as possible. Remember, it could take you two months if you were to see the same number of vendors if you had to drive to each of their locations.
  • Invite your bridal party to the show including the groom. They can help you cover twice as much ground and help share in the planning process!
  • Most importantly, have fun and enjoy your day!
