Bridal Show Vendor Checklist {4}

Wedding vendors.... before your first show did you ever google: "vendor tips for bridal shows", "how to prepare for a bridal show", "bridal show tips", "first time exhibiting a wedding show" "helpful hints for exhibiting at a wedding show" ??? I did! When I was preparing for our first bridal show I didn't know what to expect or what to bring.... so here is the checklist I came up with over the years.


Paperwork:                                                              
___calendar                                                        
___contracts
___booking packet/information

To showcase your product, service or venue
___hanging artwork
___TV or Computer (for slideshow)
___photo albums

Marketing materials
___large sign with name & logo
___business cards & holder
___brochures/postcards/other information

Other booth d├ęcor possibilities:
___carpet
___lamp

MISC:
___breath mints
___bottled water
___snacks

If not provided by the event, you'll also need:
___table(s)
___chair(s)
___possibly a table covering

If you're new to the world of wedding shows, here's what to expect:
some people LOVE to talk, and some people won't talk to you at all :)
wear comfy shoes, it will be a long day
get ready to be really friendly!

Some of the attendees are brides and grooms.... but there are also a LOT of their family, their friends, wannabe engaged girls, aspiring wedding vendors and random looky lous.... so don't assume that you have to sell yourself to everyone who wanders by your booth. Just remember to be yourself and get to know the brides & grooms first to see if you're a good fit.
