Wedding Photographer and blogger Kayleigh Pope offers her expert tips for attending a Wedding Fair and how to get the most out of your day!

Wedding fairs are a great place to visit whilst planning your wedding. You get to meet a bunch of wedding suppliers all under one roof! Result! You can great ideas and even find things you didn’t know you wanted! However, they can be overwhelming.. so here are my top tips!

Write a list of things you need to book
There are certain things you know you need to have when it comes to weddings. From a dress to a photographer, there are things I see at every wedding. Staple wedding needs – SWN. I would suggest writing down your SWN and your budget for each.

Now the other fun stuff…
Not every wedding has everything. From suppliers such as magicians to a GIN bar… keep your eye out for these fabulous wedding extras!

Take your time..
Remember you don’t have to impulse buy. You can enjoy the day doing ‘wedding stuff’ and see all of the amazing suppliers the wedding industry has to offer

But remember suppliers might be doing a show discount..
If there is a supplier you know you would like to book, see if they are doing a show discount. That way you may be able to get a special offer!

Pick up business cards/google them
Pick up as many business cards as you can. Then enjoy googling them at home and looking at what they can offer.

Enjoy yourself and test out things
Wedding planning can be stressful but remember to enjoy the process. It’s fun and you need to have as much fun as you can planning! Once your wedding is over, you will want to relive it all again!

Try on dresses
Wedding fairs mean you can try on dresses (as long as you’re not with your partner to be!). Instead of going to one shop.. you can go to a few all in one day! Also pop along to the catwalk show so you can see the dresses in action!
