Bridal Shows

There is one overwhelming reason to attend bridal shows – inspiration!

Yes, you may know exactly what you want for your perfect wedding.  However, everyone in the bridal business is innovating and offering products and services that you may have never imagined!  In fact, with large bridal shows, the choices can be overwhelming.  So, don’t go alone!  Bring mom, sis, BFFs, mother-in-law and anyone else you think can best advise you on your wedding plans.  In fact, bring the groom!  Maybe you (and he) thinks he’ll be bored to death.  Not necessarily so!  In fact, he may become so enthusiastic, that you may end up having to bring him back to financial reality if there are just too many temptations. If nothing else, it will be a lot of fun for everyone.  Lots of vendors will attend and you can make loads of contacts with folks that you think can make your wedding a fabulous event!

From a purely practical standpoint, bring your SmartPhone to take a lot of pictures and collect all the marketing material anyone hands you.  You never know when something will strike you after the show is over and you’re sorting through all the free stuff people have given you.  In fact, you may even want to set appointments with some of the vendors that immediately impress you as having the perfect services or products to make your wedding day come off exactly as you’ve dreamed!  And don’t forget to sign up for contests, samples, door prizes, giveaways, specials and discounts that the vendors will bring to the show!  You can get a head-start on defining and managing your bridal budget by doing some (fun!) homework at the show.

Here are a list of bridal shows that are coming up in the immediate future in the Maryland area.
