If you’re engaged, there’s a good chance you’ve heard that attending a wedding show is a must…and it’s true! Attending a wedding show is one of those “rights of passage” for any engaged couple, that we encourage people to experience at least once, if not more than once! Whether you just got engaged or your wedding is in three weeks, attending a wedding show is a “right of passage” that every engaged individual planning their wedding needs to experience.
Attending a wedding show is our favorite engagement tradition because it’s a valuable experience that can be enjoyed multiple times throughout the wedding planning process, whether your wedding is in two weeks or two years. Some other engaged experiences include:
- Planning an engagement photo session
- Trying on wedding dresses
- Setting up your online webpage
- Attending venue open houses
- Meeting vendors
- Planning and attending showers
- Engagement parties
- Bachelorette/bachelor parties
- Creating your wedding hashtag
Here are a few reasons why attending a wedding show is essential, no matter what stage of wedding planning you are in:
You’ll get to meet with local wedding vendors
This is one of the most important aspects of attending a wedding show. You’ll be able to meet with local vendors face to face, who can help you plan your dream wedding. From venues to caterers to wedding planners to photographers to DJs, you’ll be able to find all of the vendors you need to make your wedding day perfect.
You’ll get inspired
Another great reason to attend a wedding show is for the inspiration! You’ll be able to see what trends are popular in the wedding industry and get ideas for your wedding.
You’ll be able to win prizes
Who doesn’t love the chance to win prizes? Many vendors offer the opportunity to win prizes or discounts on their services. Our fashion show models have been known to give away bottles of champagne to the most enthusiastic wedding show attendees.
Planning a wedding can be stressful, so it’s essential to take some time for just the two of you. Attending a wedding show is the perfect way to do that. You’ll be able to spend the day together meeting vendors, getting inspired, and enjoying the excitement of wedding planning.
You can get discounts and special offers
Many vendors offer discounts and special offers exclusively to wedding show attendees. This is a great way to save money on your wedding while getting the chance to meet with vendors and see their work in person.
Last but not least, attending a Forever & Company wedding show is fun.
