How to Get The Most Out of Wedding Fairs
Wedding fairs like Ultimate Weddings Live are fun filled events. With the hustle and bustle of excited couples and vendors showing off their goods and services, it's no wonder they're so popular. There are countless benefits from visiting a wedding fair; getting to meet a lots of people who are on the same journey to the aisle, obtaining that oh-so-important face to face interaction with possible vendors and getting your mindset in the right gear for efficient and organised wedding planning. All of this fun and excitement, however, can get overwhelming. There are so many stands and people that it is sometimes easy to get bogged down. In order to avoid that, I've comprised a list of tips to help you get the most out of your visit to Ultimate Weddings Live at Punchestown.
It's important that you get the very most out of your time spent at these events as the more you get done now, the less stress you will have when it comes to the weeks leading up to your special day! With careful planning, it is possible to book your entire wedding at Ultimate Weddings Live so keep that in mind when you are feeling overwhelmed.
There is even some preparatory work you can do in the lead up to the fair. Online research can help avoid wasting time later at the fair. Have a look online at the venue of the fair and for the list of vendors so that you will have a clear idea of what you're heading into. Take note of the opening times so that you have the whole day and don't need to rush. When it comes to items to bring with you, make sure you have comfortable shoes - you don't want to try and manoeuvre around the crowd in 9 inch heels! A small notebook and pen that will fit in your handbag will come in handy for taking notes of vendors names and contact details as well as ideas that come to you during the fair due to all the inspiration around you. Taking a camera is always a good idea, as it is easy after a day packed with sampling different items and visualising colour schemes to forget some of the great things you encountered. The photos will be something you can look back on and remind yourself of some of your favourite items.
When your bag is packed and you arrive at the event, there are a few things to remember in order for you to have a highly productive day.
-Bringing friends and family along is a great idea. Not only does it make for a really fun-filled day out, but we all know that two or three heads are better than one and it can come in handy to have people there who, at the end of the day, may remember something you had forgotten about.
-Communicate your vision to vendors. There is a huge difference between researching a product or service online and actually coming face-to-face with the people who will be bringing you that particular service. At Ultimate Weddings Live, you get a unique opportunity to meet with these people, build a rapport and get contact details for future reference. Their goal is to help you create the wedding of your dreams so don't be afraid to approach them, ask questions and compare services to find the one that is most suited to your needs.
-It's important to take a break during exciting events like these, so make sure you have a few minutes to rest your feet, take a breather and get some refreshments. A perfect time to destress at Ultimate Weddings Live is during the fabulous live shows we feature at our events! Sit back, relax and take in the glamour while maybe getting inspiration too!
