How to make the most of a wedding fayre

Planning for a wedding starts from the moment you are engaged. With so much to think about, plan, book and buy, the earlier you start the better. If you are not sure where to start when it comes to your big day, then you might want to head to a wedding fayre.

Wedding fayres are held in venues up and down the country. They bring together suppliers of all types, ready to showcase just how they can help you to have the best wedding possible. The only trouble, is how to make the most of these events? Particularly if you are new to them and feel a little overwhelmed by the idea.

To help you, we have put together our guide on how to make the most of a wedding fayre.

Watch the catwalk

If you are still yet to decide on the right type of dress, then heading to the catwalk is a must. Here you will see a number of different dresses, accessories and footwear, as well as gain some inspiration for wedding hair and make up styles. The guys can even get in on the act, as they will often feature groomsmen style too.

Never rush

One of the most important things that you can do is to make sure that you take your time when at a wedding fayre. Depending on the size of the event, there is a good chance that you will spend quite a few hours there and the last thing you will want is to miss a showcase or not talk to a supplier and ask all the questions you want, just because you are in a rush.

Soak up everything

You might think that some parts of the wedding fayre are not going to apply to you, and whilst this is true, it doesn’t mean you can miss them out. Sit down and watch that live band, they might give you inspiration on some live music for your big day. Try the different cakes on offer, you never know what you might like until you see it for yourself.

Ask questions

The main point of any wedding fayre is that it gives you a chance to talk to different suppliers. Whilst you may worry about chatting to people, this is your aim. Ask any questions you may have and gain as much information as possible. The last thing you will want to do is head home only to realise you didn’t find out as much as you wanted.

Have fun

The best tip that we can give you when it comes to wedding fayre is to have fun. It may sound simple, but so many couples forget to enjoy the entire experience of planning a wedding. Hopefully you will only do it once, so it should be something that you really make an effort to enjoy, each and every step of the way.
