Bridal Expo is Alberta’s biggest fall bridal show hosting over 150 of Calgary’s leading wedding specialists. Birch & Bunny Weddings and Events has some tips to help you navigate and make the most of your visit to Bridal Expo.
Plan Which Vendors to Meet
Take a look through the online Vendor Guide to see which vendors seem like they would be a good fit for you and your fiance. Keep an open mind at the Expo, but it is helpful to have a plan for where the vendors are whom you’d like to meet.
Bring a Friend or Two
A friend can help you carry your swag and enter contests, while you connect with vendors and make appointments. You may be tempted to bring your whole squad but choosing just one or two means you won’t be overwhelmed by all of their opinions. Maybe your Fiancé would like the chance to connect with vendors too?
Avoid the Crowds, Start in the Artisan Area!
Boutique vendors such as Birch & Bunny Weddings and Events will be located in the Artisan Area near the food trucks and fashion show. Skip the crowds by making your way to the Artisan Area while everyone else is crowded around the booths by the entrance!
You will need about 2 or 3 hours at the Expo, and it can be hard on your tootsies.
Print up labels with your name, fiancé’s name, wedding date and email address on them to save time when entering to win prizes. That way, your helper can put your sticker on the entry form while you connect with the wedding specialists! Labels will also be available for sale at the entrance. Birch & Bunny Weddings and Events will be giving away two prize packs each including a GC for $200 off Planning and Coordination services. Good luck!
There will be some great options at the Food Trucks in the Artisan Area, so grab a bite and you’ll be ready to venture back out for more inspiration.
Be sure to get in touch with the vendors who you connected with before your wedding date gets booked. Many of the vendors will be reaching out to you as well. Set up appointments with the vendors you connected with to discuss their potential role in your wedding.
Hope to see you there!
