PLAN TO STAY FOR 2-3 HOURS

Make sure you give yourself adequate time to see every booth, consult with vendors, ask questions and gather ideas, enter contests and drawings, etc. You won’t want to miss our spectacular runway show and take in some of the live entertainment. There is lots to see, and plenty of free goodies and giveaways, so come prepared to make a day out of it!

COLLECT INFORMATION FROM VENDORS TO READ OVER IN A MORE RELAXED SETTING

Some feel it is hard to stand in front of a booth and collect your thoughts about what you really want for your wedding. By collecting business cards, brochures and pamphlets, you will be able to organize your thoughts in a more comfortable setting later. 

COME PREPARED TO BOOK SERVICES 

Many vendors will offer a special discount, as a show special. Because of the exciting atmosphere at the event, vendors like to encourage “book today” offers. They are so excited to be a part of your wedding that many may discount their services.

HAVE FUN!

These shows are made for YOU! Vendors come to make sure that you feel like you are getting exactly what you want. If you follow these simple instructions and guidelines you will find that it is extremely hard not to have fun.

What to bring…

BRING THE DECISION MAKERS, IE: YOUR PARENTS, FIANCÉ ETC. 

No matter what the decision is, we all feel a little more comfortable with a second opinion. With so many vendors to choose from at the 94.5 Country Bridal Fair®, you will be opened up to enormous amounts of possibilities and options. You will enjoy the decision process much more having someone to share it with.

BRING SELF ADDRESSED LABELS OR BUSINESS CARDS

One of the most popular things that vendors like to do at the event, is provide a chance to win a drawing at their booth. This is a great way to learn more about the products and services that are offered. Unfortunately, you may have to write your name several dozen times to enter into these drawings. Having pre-labeled address tags, you will be able to breeze through this process and still benefit from the vendors offerings. 

BRING YOUR CALENDAR TO MAKE APPOINTMENTS 

Most vendors will want you to book a service and it is extremely hard to book a date, if you aren’t sure that your schedule is free for that day. By carrying around your appointment book, you will be able to fit a service or maybe even two services in at just the right time. As your wedding day approaches you will find that your time gets shorter.

BRING A CAMERA TO CREATE OF VISUAL DIARY OF YOUR DAY

A picture can say a thousand words. At the 94.5 Country Bridal Fair® you will be able to imagine a perfect wedding, but once you leave you may find yourself forgetting exactly what you saw and wanted.
