Visit a Wedding Fair Near You!

Wedding fair season is upon us. Over the past few months wedding event organisers and venues across the UK have been busy setting up and planning wedding fairs for you to attend.

It’s that time of year again. Autumn is prime time to visit wedding fairs and see what is on offer in your area. Wedding fair event companies and venues are busy organising wedding fairs for all you brides-to-be to attend.

Wedding fairs are a great place to meet suppliers face-to-face, and find out what they can bring to your special day. You can meet an array of wedding businesses, from favour companies, to photographers, and even get the chance to see wedding dresses at fashion shows.

Wedding fair season is already in full swing. The WeddingLink Team, a wedding fair event specialist, spoke to UKbride:

“Our first wedding fair was on 25th September at Theobalds Park. The day flew by, as it was busy.” Said Christine Stimpson (exhibition coordinator)

Brides are already attending the wedding fairs, and the general feedback so far suggests that brides are attending the fairs to calculate a workable budget, and often looking for a last minute bargain.

“We pre-book for our fairs, and a lot of the bride-to-be wedding dates are TBC, so the wedding day isn’t yet set. Those that have set a date are about two years away.” She said.

Even though brides-to-be are shopping around and comparing prices of suppliers, suppliers are still taking lots of bookings at these fairs. Wedding fairs should be attended by all brides-to-be and suppliers. So beat the crowd and get there early, giving you time to talk to each person, get the best deals, and enjoy the wedding planning process.

For brides-to-be, we suggest that you do a little research before you attend each wedding fair to find out exactly what is on offer. Each wedding fair is different; there may be gift packs available, samples, and even prizes to be won. Wedding fairs are an incredible way to work out what you want for your wedding day. Check out UKbride’s wedding fair section for fairs taking place in your area.

For suppliers, we suggest that you too do a little research. Find out where the competition is, and have a plan in place when speaking to the brides-to-be.  Have material ready for the brides-to-be to take away, a portfolio, samples, and somewhere they can sign up for further contact. Suppliers can advertise their wedding fairs for free on UKbride. CLICK HERE to list your wedding fair.
