Vendor Tips: How to Rock a Wedding Show - WeddingWise Articles
Wedding shows are one of the primary marketing events of any vendor’s calendar. They are a chance to meet personally with hundreds of brides and promote your business in the wedding industry. A significant chunk of any wedding vendor’s marketing budget will go on wedding shows every year, so it’s important to optimise your wedding show experience to get the biggest return on your investment.

How to Get the Most Out of a Wedding Show - WeddingWise Articles
Wedding Shows are held every year throughout New Zealand (Use our handy wedding show calendar to see when a show next hits your town).

It’s a wonderful experience – you’re able to touch and smell and taste products that you can only imagine from images online. But wedding shows can also be daunting and stressful. All those couples desperate to talk to the vendors means it can sometimes be difficult to get your questions answered. It can also be hard to stay on task when you’re distracted by so many pretty, shiny things! But don’t worry, we’ve compiled the ultimate Wedding Show Survival Guide, to help you stay focused and get the most out of wedding shows.

1. Choose the right wedding show
