Why Attend a Local Wedding Show?

Checking out the booths!
Whenever we find ourselves on the cusp of a large purchase, it seems we look to gather as much information as we can. We research, talk to friends, check ratings, comparison shop and use google and other search engines to the full. Perhaps that stems from our desire to feel informed. We want to make sure our choice is a good one. So that we can look back, confident in our decision as money well spent. Well, the same rings true and arguably even more so when wedding planning. Most likely this is our first foray into the world of bouquets, multi-tiered cakes, DJs, limos, caterers, invitations, and gowns… at least all at one time. So when setting your sights on booking, planning and ultimately paying for these items and services, it can easily feel overwhelming… What is a reasonable price? How early do I need to book? What do I need to put deposits down on? What is in style and on trend? What kind of timeline is required? How many of those do I need? Where do I even start? Fortunately, the local wedding industry has come up with a solution that works for any and all brides and grooms to be. Whether you are just starting out or are in the thick of the wedding planning process, a Wedding Show is the answer! The Niagara Autumn Wedding Show takes place Sunday, September 17th and is a gathering of all the area’s top wedding professionals with one common goal… to showcase their talents, services and specialties for your convenience. It’s almost like a wedding based “mall” set up with each “store” geared to covering off your things to do list. As mentioned at the outset, when making a purchase we want to feel informed, know the latest and comparison shop. Well, a wedding show is the ultimate tool in making every decision that engaged couples face.
