(Shared wisdom from The budget savvy bride.com on why you should attend!)
Thanks to the advent of bridal blogs and sites like The Knot its easier and more accessible than ever to do lots of research for your big day decisions online. But the power of face to face interaction with potential vendors can not be denied!
If you're hoping to make a more personal connection and be efficient with your planning efforts, you should definitely try to attend a bridal show! Plus, Bouche shows are FUN!
1. Make a Personal Connection
When it comes to choosing your wedding vendors, you want to make sure that you not only like their work, but that the people you hire are people you will enjoy working with for an extended period of time during your engagement. Sometimes, making that personal connection with a caterer or florist who truly understands your vision will push them to the top of your list. Personality matters when you are spending 6-12 months working with someone, and trusting them with a very important day in your life.
