January is definitely wedding month! In Toronto, there have been wedding shows and expos every weekend so far and they continue until the end of the month. I will be at The Wedding Show at The Carlu this weekend working with The Wedding Co. team.

Whether you are newly engaged, just started your planning or only have a few small details to go – this show is for you! Here are a few tips on getting the most out of your experience at a wedding show.

  • Be prepared – grab a notepad and pen so you can jot down ideas or thoughts as you see them
  • Plan ahead – make a list of vendors you expect to meet
  • Keep it simple – like shopping it’s a great experience on your own or with a trusted partner whose opinion you value
  • Chat it up – start a dialogue with vendors, ask questions and get a sense of their personality to see if this is someone you can work with throughout the next few months of planning
  • Keepsake pouch – grab a 5 x 7 envelope to place the business cards of vendors you had a great experience with and want to follow up with after the show

Here is a sample of what Scott and I are taking on our walk through The Wedding Show:

Over the past year, I have had the great pleasure of being part of The Wedding Co. team. I have personally been working on the 2010 Wedding Show – an exquisite wedding show like no other in Toronto. And, I am immensely excited to see it unfold and come to life over the next couple of days.

The boutique-inspired show begins on Friday at 5 PM at The Carlu where 115 hand-selected wedding professionals inspire ideas to help you create your ideal celebration.

I am looking forward to catching up with this wonderful community of vendors as well as gathering ideas with Scott for our wedding celebration.

Tickets are $20.00 at the door or you can subscribe to The Daily News and receive a $3.00 off voucher. Details at The Wedding Co.
