Is it still worth going to wedding fayres even though venue and dress are booked?

Maybe for ideas such as favours, invites, entertainment. I'm going to one to get ideas for decorations.

Yes. We saw lots of ideas for cakes, invitations, favours, competitions (!) etc. Bascially it shows you what is out there. On Sunday we saw a lovely idea from the photographer where you get a couple of small replicas of your wedding album so that parents can have them ... we all know there is nothing a Mum loves more than to show off her daughter's wedding photos.

yes defiantly make the most of these fairs cause once the weddings over you wont be going to these events again unless for someone elses wedding. I'm going to as many events as I can buying as many bride magazines as I can the planning happens once xx

I recently went to one and got a lot of inspiration for dressing the venue and also picked up accessories for my bridesmaids.

We keep going to a few throughout the year to tidy up the last bits. Its a great way to meet local suppliers rather than using internet, also we spoke to suppliers who we had already booked just to keep contact.

Definitely, I got most of my things sorted but thought why not, I got lots of inspiration and I also booked a magician who was amazing! Would definitely recommend going to one, especially if free x

Definitely. Especially if you enjoy them as once you're married that's it, might as well make the most.
