With the internet at our finger tips, we can literally spend countless hours researching and "pinning" images, but it there is something missing from this process. Without tasting the cake, lacing up the gown, a trial hair & make-up run, feeling different linens and seeing up-lights & decor transform a space; you haven't truly started planning. As the Chico Bridal Show approaches and the excitement grows for both the couples and the exhibitors I try to stress the point that the show is an investment for all parties involved. As the couple planning your wedding, you want to take advantage of the opportunity to meet with local wedding professionals who can offer you the best services and products available to you in our area. This is when your real planning begins.
Armed with the knowledge you have after attending a bridal show, you can make an informed decision on who you would like to book a consultation with and what areas you need assistance with the most. You can pick up samples, business cards, event flyers and enter into drawings for some pretty great prizes!
On the flip side, the exhibitors in the show (having been one myself) want to meet couples who are interested in learning more about their services. They get to meet new couples and expand their business by booking events but they also get to push their own envelope by creating exhibit spaces that are inspiring to them and appealing to you! A photographer can display their work on a beautiful canvas and show you some of their album samples, a wedding planner or decor company can display leading wedding trends and styles, and each exhibitor brings their own unique experience and style to the table for you to enjoy.
So for about the same price as a mocha and a tasty treat at your favorite coffee spot, you can cross off some to-do items and enjoy yourself at the Chico Bridal Show this sunday (August 18th, from 11-3pm) at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds.
