Frequently Asked Questions
What time should I get there?
The doors open at 6:30 and we’ll begin the General Prize Drawings at 8:00 so plan on being there before 8:00. When you sign in at the registration table your name will go into the basket for the General Prize Drawings! If you have pre-registered we’ll have your survey partially printed for you. The first winners will be drawn from the first brides that arrive. When your name is called you pick your prize from the prize basket and then go to the vendor to get the actual prize. Grand Prizes (anything over $250) will be 9:00 pm when all the Brides have filled out and turned in their surveys.
Do guys attend bridal shows?
Absolutely! There is a new and growing trend of guys wanting to be part of the wedding planning process especially at our summer evening shows that have been referred to as Date night!
I went to my first bridal show and loved it! Is there a reason that I should go to another show?
Attending more than one show is all about choices! There is always a variety of wedding professionals at each show. Some brides have shared that they needed to go to 2-3 shows to gather the info needed to plan their weddings. Some brides will travel more than an hour to go to a show. A brides recently told us that attending a bridal show was a really fun day out for she and her Mom, sisters, sister-in-laws and the girls in the wedding party!
Do I have to be there to win prizes?
Yes, you do need to be present to win prizes. There is always so much to see and do at each show that the time goes by very quickly. At the show you’ll be meeting the wedding professionals and gathering info from each one. We usually have musicians playing and you’ll see the latest in fashions. At most shows we have a cake cutting and a bouquet toss. The Grand Prizes are drawn at the end of the show and have been referred to as the icing on the cake!
