Wedding fairs are designed to get your heart racing with excitement as you peruse all the beautiful event features from wedding cake galleries to wedding dress displays. You’re sure to feel inspired, but to make the most of such occasions it’s important to go with a game plan. Here are 8 useful tips to make wedding fairs Kent work for you. 

1 Go with an open mind

If you’ve already sketched out the perfect dress in your head, that’s fine. You’re allowed to dream. But going with an open mind will help you appreciate all the latest styles and designs. You might even have a change of heart.

2 Note down important questions

Got something on your mind about wedding organisation? Then note down important questions and take them with you. Wedding fairs attract wedding experts, happy to share their knowledge. So, seize your moment for first-hand advice and make sure you note down important facts to research further after your visit.

3 Have an objective in mind

Wedding fairs tend to cover all aspects of tying the knot. But to avoid feeling overwhelmed, go with one or two objectives in mind. Perhaps you want to find the ideal venue, or at least see what’s in your area. Or, maybe you’re looking for the perfect cake supplier. Use the fair strategically to take your wedding planning to the next level.

4 Pick up a wedding fair guide 

Most wedding fairs have a show guide which lists the exhibitors. This means when you get home, you’ll be able to contact wedding suppliers that caught your attention. Of course, it’s also worth collecting business cards and leaflets as you go for more information and to jog your memory about who you preferred.

5 Keep an eye out for bargains

In order to promote their services and gain extra customers, exhibitors often have special offers and discounts for those attending the wedding fair. Tying the knot can be expensive, so it’s certainly worth keeping an eye out for such bargains.

6 Enjoy a VIP experience

If a VIP experience is available – how about it? You and your partner could enjoy an extra special day out before saying, “I Do”. Or, maybe you could soak it all in with your maid of honour. Lap up the luxuries from champagne to goody bags depending on the event.

7 Take your time

When heading to the wedding fair, make sure you leave enough time to view each exhibit properly and to talk to the experts about your big day and the dreams you want to come true. Rushing through the day could leave you feeling stressed and anxious. So, maximise your time and go with a calming influence – not someone who tries to hurry you along.

Note: While it might seem magical to attend a wedding fair with your partner, they’re really not to everyone’s taste. If you want to go, it may be more beneficial to take along a friend or relative that’s just as excited as you. But be sure to talk this through with your loved one first. After all, you don’t want any pre-wedding arguments.

8 Relax and enjoy

There are many things to enjoy at a wedding fair from eye-catching bouquets to live music. Relax, enjoy and soak up the atmosphere. If there’s an entertainment stage, this is a great place to unwind after a busy day of all things wedding related.
