My wedding was over 8 years ago now and back then, Facebook and blogs were just a glint in the eye of cyberspace. In my day there was no PINTEREST! I know…..you just can’t imagine. How did I cope?!!
Fast forward in time to today and Brides are in the reverse situation that I found myself in with info and inspiration overload. Truely, it must be quite overwhelming for you.
Whilst we’re blessed with 24 hour online inspiration, there are still many reasons to visit wedding fairs and since they all differ in size and style, it’s good to do a little research before you commit to going.
LCA fairs are designed to offer a wide range of inspiration so you’ll see a bit of everything. From vintage, rustic, industrial, elegant, boho, traditional and more. This is all within a relaxing and friendly environment with no hard selling.
Obviously one of the top reasons to visit is to get some ideas for your own big day and to seek out some vendors who offer what you’re looking for. Seeing in ‘real life’ the different styles that vendors have can be really useful for you to be able to put together your own vision. Maybe bring along your pinterest board with you to cross check. Furthermore, I can hand on heart vouch that LCA vendors will go that extra mile to show you just how awesome their products and services are with creative and innovative displays.
Once you’re there you can taste the cake, feel the paper of the stationery, try the photo booth, meet the photographer, swoon over a dress and dazzle at the jewellery. All of which cannot be done via a blog or magazine. ‘Like Pinterest come to life’ said one lovely Bride.
You can be sure certainly in the case of exhibitors at LCA fairs that they are all high quality with an ability and dersire to exceed your expectations. It’s only unfortunate that there’s not enough room for all of the amazing vendors in SA however to ensure that Brides don’t come away feeling overwhelmed then there is a cap on the number of exhibitors in each category.
Something else to consider if that you may be interested in booking a vendor that you’ve only seen via the web. If you know they are exhibiting then you can have the opportunity to meet them and their product/service in person to make sure you’re 100% happy to proceed.
Weddings can be expensive. Fact. So the opportunity to save a few $$ is appealing to everyone. Some vendors use wedding fairs to incentivise bookings within a certain time frame. They may even have a competition or giveaway on the go?
Our next fair is 26th October 2014 10.30am – 3.30pm
at Carclew House North Adelaide.
$5 entry see you there!
