Reasons why you should attend a Wedding Fayre.
See A Venue
It’s important to see your venue stripped down and devoid of people to get a true impression. But it’s also equally important to see the venue dressed up as it would be on your day, and full of people.
Many wedding venues organise their own wedding fayres, which is a wonderful opportunity to see your venue fully dressed with table decor, blossom trees, flower arches, red carpets, and anything else you might want.
There’ll be staff milling around all day so you can ask them any questions about the venue, or even speak to an internal wedding co-ordinator.
Start Meeting Suppliers
Wedding fayres are the best way to meet suppliers from your local area. Meeting them in person is so important, as you get a true impression of them and their work. This is one of the biggest reasons why you should visit a wedding fayre.
You’ll be able to meet and chat to a whole range of suppliers, from photographers to magicians, cake makers to DJs. You’ll get a ‘feeling’ about them based on their stall, what they look like, and the work they do. It’s important to connect with your wedding suppliers, as you’ll be meeting with them a lot in the run up to your wedding day.
Even if all your suppliers are picked out and paid for, you might want an opportunity to finalise some details. If your cake supplier lives an hour in the opposite direction from your venue dresser, but they’re both attending the fayre, it’s a real timesaver to arrange to meet them there.
This is one that many brides might not be aware of, but wedding fayres can actually save you money. Suppliers might do a ‘Book on the Day’ deal. If you book them and pay a deposit at the fayre, you might get 10% off the cost, or even a freebie, like a free engagement shoot when you book a photographer.
You’d be amazed at the deals you can find, so it’s worth visiting for this reason alone.
See a Catwalk Show
Wedding dresses can all start to look the same on the rail if you’re not too careful. A catwalk show is a wonderful opportunity to see the dresses on real women of all shapes, heights, and sizes. It might give you inspiration if you have no idea what you like, and you can talk to the organisers behind the catwalk and book an appointment at their shop to try some on yourself.
