Getting Started

Bridal shows and events are one of the easiest ways to get a taste for all of the best wedding vendors in your area when you start wedding dress shopping -- including local wedding dress salons, wedding florists, wedding planners, and even wedding transportation rentals -- without all the legwork. If you have never attended a bridal show, here is what to expect. The shows are usually held in hotels or other convention centers, and participating vendors -- everything from formalwear rentals to cake bakers -- set up booths where they can answer your questions and show you examples of their products. Even better, many bridal events offer door prizes and complimentary swag to attendees. Think free makeup application, coupons, and even wedding gift certificates. The most expansive shows usually charge for admission, but you can often get cheaper tickets if you buy early. When you find a bridal show to go to, consider making a day of it and bringing your fiance, mom, or bridesmaids to help you sort through all your options (and in the case of those contests, give you more chances to win!). Not sure if there are wedding shows in your area? You are in luck! We have gathered the best bridal shows across the country here for your perusal. Get the information you need here, and then visit the bridal show website for answers to any additional questions.
