Many bridal shows boast hundreds of vendors in large spaces, so Vow bridal show planner and Vow Bride Magazine editor-in-chief Kim Wadsworth gave the Daily Press five tips on how brides-to-be can navigate the shows to get the most out of their time. 1. Always bring someone with you whose opinion you really trust, who knows you well and can share those experiences with you. A bridal show should be a great opportunity to fill in the blanks of anything you might not have in terms of vendors for your wedding day. I always say, Go with your maid of honor, your mother, your sister or a couple of people. Make it a fun day. 2. Before you go, make a list of things you need. Make your list and look at the vendors. Take care of the things that are very important, then take time to look at other things. Get the priorities done first and then have fun exploring other things you havent considered. Wadsworth added that prioritizing the list depends on where a person is in the wedding planning process, but for beginners, she said finding a wedding planner, photographer, videographer, caterer and venue are the most important.
