If at all possible, don’t go to a bridal fair on your own. Take your fiancé, your mum or your chief bridesmaid – you’ll appreciate having their help and advice.

There’s so much to see at a bridal fair, but don’t be overwhelmed. Stroll around at your own pace and take everything in. Most fairs have an exhibitor lists to help you locate what you’re looking for. If you can access a copy of this prior to the event, plan your visit in detail so that you make the best use of your time.

Many bridal fairs include spectacular fashion parades that showcase the latest designs from top fashion houses. Fashions for the entire bridal party are usually modelled and by the end of the parade you’ll have a much better idea of the way various fabrics and styles fall and ‘move’.

Visiting a bridal fair early in your wedding planning process is a great way to source accurate costs for various services. Check to see what’s included in each price range, and whether any discounts or extras apply. Having that information available when you start building your budget is invaluable. From there, you can calculate a detailed and accurate expenses checklist. Allow for a full day at each of the bridal fairs. The more time you have to stroll around, look at displays and ask questions, the better. Remember, the better informed you are, the more likely you are to get real value for your money and get useful wedding planning tips from experts.
