As the weather slowly warms up here in the UK, it’s time to start getting...
Wedding fairs, Wedding Shows, Wedding exhibitions……..what ever you want to call them! Today on Wedding Wednesday Discussions I’d like to open up the blog to you and tell me what your thoughts are.
After a decision I had with some fellow wedding suppliers a few weeks ago on the subject I thought it would be a good idea to ask you the bride and groom (and other wedding suppliers) on your thoughts.
There are so many fairs now, all around the country, big, small, enormous, one day events, 2 days events, some of the national shows even go on for 3 days.
Since I was planning my own wedding I have seen a massive shift in the type of wedding fair available, there is so much variety now catering to every sort of bride, from vintage, to alternative, rock n roll to traditional. It has given every sort of couple the chance to find the right kind of supplier to them
But do you find them worthwhile going to?
Do you find they are full with the same suppliers or do you think that have a good variety?
Do you get confused as to which ones to go to? Do you prefer the big national ones or the smaller local ones?
Some people say that the days of the wedding fair is dead, with blogs and magazines offering the bride and groom everything they need to find the right suppliers, but don’t you prefer going out and actually meeting your wedding suppliers, touching an feeling their products?
As for you the wedding supplier do you find you get much out of them? Or are you tired of the same format? Do you only allow for wedding fairs in your marketing budget and not advertise anywhere else? Or are you a supplier who has decided not to attend any more fairs and use blog and magazine advertising instead?
Or are you a wedding fair organiser? have you found they have become more or less popular over the last few years?
Today the Blog is wide open for you to tell me your thoughts…..everyone is welcome, bride, groom, wedding supplier, married couples. What is your experience with wedding fairs, good or bad, impartial?
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a comment below, what ever your view!
