| WEDDING PLANNING | How To Make The Most Out Of A Wedding Fair
You’re newly engaged, you’ve found yourself in the wonderful world of weddings and it’s time to start planning. But where do you actually start? We’d always recommend grabbing your best girls and getting yourself down to a wedding fair.
Not only is a wedding fair a fun day out for you and your #BrideTribe, it will be full of brilliantly creative suppliers and you’ll leave feeling inspired and completely planning-ready. You will probably have managed to tick off the most of your wedding to-do-list, under one roof!
The Wedding Event With A Difference just around the corner (Sunday 16th February), we thought we’d give you our expert advice on how you can make the most out of a wedding fair. So, let’s get started:
Making It Stress-Free
Wedding fairs are designed to be fun-filled events that showcase some of the area’s best wedding suppliers, but it can easily become stressful if you don’t know what you’re getting yourself into. However, if you go in knowing what you want to get out of it, they are an essential part of the planning process. Plus, there’s often a prosecco van so that’s always a bonus!
At The Wedding Event With A Difference, you’ll find over 80 suppliers who can’t wait to showcase their talents. We recommend attending a fair with a list of suppliers that you need to tick off your wedding to-do-list. For instance, if you’re looking for a florist make a note of it and suss out the situation as soon as you arrive. If you’ve already booked a cake maker, then you can prioritise other vendors. Don’t forget to check out our exhibitor list here – from food trucks to photographs, we’ve got everyone you need for the perfect day. If you spot someone on the list that you want to say hello to, make sure you put down a reminder so you can work your way around the wedding fair without wasting time.
Grab Your Best Girls
Wedding fairs are FUN! So make a day of it and take someone with you, whether that’s your husband or wife-to-be, your mother-in-law or your bridesmaids. At The Wedding Event With A Difference there’s a huge amount to experience, from live music to fashion catwalks. Not only will it be more enjoyable bringing someone along, they can offer a second opinion on your potential suppliers.

What To Bring:
A bag – Grab yourself a tote bag as you’ll be given tonnes of flyers, freebies and cake samples and it’s a LOT easier than carrying them around all day.
Your diary – Whether that’s on your phone or a paper diary, you definitely need one when you attend a wedding fair as you’ll want to check availability and book in viewings, tastings or consultations. If you bring one thing, it’s a diary, trust us!
Comfy shoes – You’re going to be doing a LOT of walking and wandering around and even more standing and chatting, so make sure you pop on some comfy shoes so you can plan your wedding without sore feet. You can always pop a pair of heels in your bag if you’re planning on trying on any dresses.
Water and painkillers – It’s always better to be prepared and it can be a long day, so stay hydrated and warn off any wedding fair-induced headaches with painkillers. ‘Aint nothing getting in the way of wedding planning!
