Why do I Need to Attend a Bridal Show?

Despite the fact that bridal shows are a great way to plan a wedding, many people have the misconception of them being full of pushy sales people and gimmicky offers.  What these brides and grooms may not realize is that they're missing out on FANTASTIC opportunities to help plan their big day!  These are just a few reasons why you need to attend:

  • To Save Money -  Lots of vendors offer great deals on show specials and packages. There are quality wedding vendors discounting their services to you just for booking at the show. You can also take advantage of gown and accessory sales, last minute booking deals, and tons more. In addition to getting a great deal, you also have the opportunity to win some great prizes; just for showing up! Our bridal shows have prize giveaways awarding gowns, floral arrangements, gift certificates, wedding day transportation, and more!. Some vendors also offer booth prizes, which can be anything from a gift basket full of goodies, to a free spa treatment.

  • Talk to the vendors in person - Meet with bakers, reception hosts, retailers, limousine companies and much more all in one place. Talk with vendors about their services. Are they pleasant to deal with? Do your personalities click? Could you work well with this person? Answer all of these questions and any others you might have at one time, in one place.

  • Try Free Samples and Product - Sure you can shop for wedding cakes online, but can you taste them? Our shows are packed with free samples of cakes, cupcakes and more. In addition to oodles of food samplings, you can also hear live music from DJs,  sit in The Party Bus and stretch limos, grab free bridal magazines, and get TONS of coupons. Hairstylists and makeup artists often provide free consultations on the day of the show, giving brides free makeup and hair trials as well.

  • Take the Stress out of Planning!- Your wedding is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life, not the most stressful. By attending a bridal show, you’ll get tons of helpful planning guides, catalogs, and great advice from vendors who have been in the business for years. With so many wedding professionals under one roof, you could even plan your whole wedding in just one day! How’s that for easy and stress-free planning?

  • Check out the latest Trends - Our Bridal shows always have exciting fashion shows, featuring the hottest trends in the bridal world. Check out the latest gowns for you, your bridal party, and see what’s in style for tuxedos, floral design, and accessoriesIn addition to fashion shows, you’ll also be able to see what’s in for favors, centerpieces, photography, and transportation.

  • See Ideas you never thought of - You can always get great ideas about things you may not have considered yet. You’ll find all sorts of inspiration for personalized ceremonies, creative seating card holders, crafty guest sign-in options, and even charitable donations options. You’ll be sure to see something that you hadn’t considered yet.

  • Have Fun! - Just because you’re on a mission to plan your wedding doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun doing it.. Bring your bridesmaids, get a free make up consultation, and indulge in some cupcakes. Tell your groom-to-be to tag along, and bring his best man. Ask mom and/or dad to come along with their credit card (just kidding), and enjoy some bonding time. Our bridal shows are hosted in the warm, elegant and beautiful Sheraton Newfoundland hotel, which gives you the chance to bring your friends and turn it into a fun filled day with the girls.  You can always grab lunch or brunch at the Oppidan Restaurant in the hotel, and make a day of it!
