Wedding Fairs in Dorset
If you've not yet been to a Dorset wedding fair before here's our our lump of ice (that's cockney rhyming slang for advice!) before giving up part of your precious weekend.
1. Do your Homework
The old cliché "Fail to Plan - Plan to Fail" is so simple but such good advice when planning your wedding.
Before deciding which wedding fairs to attend we'd suggest you make a list of wedding services that you still need to tick off your list and research which wedding suppliers are attending each wedding fair.
If you still need to find your dream Wedding Dress, or Wedding Makeup Artist and there's 2 magicians, 1 florist and 9 photographers attending - you may want to give this wedding fair a swerve!
2. Ask for Recommendations - to save you Bird (Time!)
If you're chatting to a wedding supplier (maybe a Makeup Artist!) whose personality vibes with yours and you haven't yet found the right wedding photographer for you why not ask them if they have any recommendations. They'll be much more likely to have crossed paths with suitable suppliers at previous weddings they've both worked on and be more than happy to make a recommendation to you.
3. Go Big or Go Small?
If large venues, lots of people, polite conversations and parking wars stress you out you may want to consider visiting a smaller more intimate wedding fair.
Large wedding exhibitions can be exhausting when you get bombarded with business cards and sales talk with suppliers for services that you may have already sorted (think 10 minutes of polite conversation per supplier could ad up if you don't want to cause offence by walking on!)
If this sounds like your worst nightmare then you may want to consider attending our small, relaxed and informal Hair and Beauty Fair with free goody bags, wine and canapés supported by a handful of carefully selected wedding suppliers on 18th February between 5pm - 7pm at The Hair and Beauty Lounge in Wallisdown.
