These runway productions are fun, sophisticated, and provide a quality service for brides wanting to experience the latest in couture and contemporary bridal fashion.

To accommodate this effort a creative theme is commonly used to promote the event and provide a backdrop. The theme is carried through from early advertising all the way to the last model leaving the stage.

The theme for the coming January 2015 event has been decided, the photoshoot for the official poster has been scheduled, and decor is already being developed.

We’ll be announcing these particulars in the coming weeks and you can expect the official posters for the bridal show to be distributed very soon thereafter.

We are very fortunate to call Sawgrass Marriott our home and equally so to have Robin Jones and the rest of her staff taking care of our events. The Bridal Fantasy Events just seem to be getting better and better!

This past August saw yet another beautiful Jacksonville Bridal Fantasy event take place featuring over 125 of the area’s leading wedding professionals.

There was a SANDALS honeymoon giveaway, lots of other valuable prize giveaways, plenty of delicious cuisine sampling … and a breathtaking, time-honored, runway fashion event featuring the latest in couture and contemporary bridal fashion; showcasing dresses and accessories by David’s Bridal, Minerva’s Bridal, Amelia Scott, Cathy Juhasz Boutique and Erin Healy. The theme this time was the “Secret Garden.”

Our next show in January – and all events moving forward – will appreciate the addition of overflow parking  accommodations compliments of the prestigious TPC Sawgrass just up the road from the Marriott.

FOR MORE INFO & TICKETS VISIT JACKSONVILLEBRIDALSHOW.COM

If you are getting married these local bridal shows can help in many ways. The Jacksonville Bridal Fantasy events at the Sawgrass Marriott allow you to meet and ask questions from some of the best wedding professionals in the area all under one roof. These events allow you to gather information, compare prices and services, register for prizes, enjoy the latest fashion on the runway, sample culinary delicacies, and have lots of fun with family and friends.

There’s a good amount of information to read here but some great suggestions that will help you get the most from your 2014 Jacksonville bridal show experience:

Buy Your Tickets In Advance
Many shows will offer discounts with online ticket purchases. Purchasing tickets in advance will provide a greater convenience and value for you and your attending guests.

Do Your Homework
Planning a wedding does not happen by itself. You should brainstorm with others prior to the bridal show and bring with you questions to ask the vendors. Check the bridal show’s website for a list of participating businesses and target those you are most interested in seeing. Calling and introducing yourself in advance of the show is the perfect ice-breaker. If you are visiting the show to look for ideas come with a sense of what you’d like and ask the vendors to elaborate on your thoughts. The general idea is to gather as much information as possible at the event and then ask the vendors you like best for an appointment at their place where they can go over the finer details.

Jacksonville bridal showBe Sociable and Engaging
Make an effort to be friendly and initiate the conversation. Part of visiting these shows is to see which vendors match your personality the best. Not all vendors are the same. Don’t necessarily go for the louder and more boisterous persona. There have been some very talented wedding professionals that have shown a more hushed demeanor, especially at first glance. A shy florist might easily provide services as impressive as those of an outgoing coordinator. Listen to the vendors. If their product or service is one you need and they are busy talking with someone else, stand close and feel free to wait until they are available.

Take Advantage Of Everything
Show promoters will often provide honeymoon vacations as well as other services they have solicited from the vendors and use them as grand-prize giveaways, runner-up prizes, and door prizes. However, some vendors will offer drawings for prizes at their individual booths too. Take advantage of them all! Bring address labels with your printed name, address, phone number, email, and wedding date to use with these registrations. This will provide convenience, save you lots of time, and possibly prevent you from getting writer’s cramp. IMPORTANT: You may also wish to set up a separate email account and use this for your wedding planning and when visiting bridal shows. After such an event vendors will want to contact you and it would be more convenient to have a separate account to use and review at your leisure instead of your personal email blowing up with messages after each event.

Make A Day Of It
Try and visit every booth. You may have your preferred vendors and targeted list but these shows are full of a variety of professionals; some spending a thousand dollars or more to be there. Chances are you’ll find something you like or something you’ll decide later to use in your wedding and by visiting all the booths you’ll then have the information in hand and ahead of time. Plan a “recess” about every hour or so. Go play the casino tables, sample more of the food, get a drink, or schedule a bathroom break. Take your time. There’ll be plenty of opportunity to visit all the vendors. Plan to spend all day and get the most out of it. IMPORTANT: It is suggested to dress casual or business casual and wear comfortable shoes. You will be doing a lot of walking.

Jacksonville bridal showFriends Are The Family You Choose
It is a good idea to bring along some family members and friends. Bringing your Fiance is not a bad idea either if they’re up to it. In many bridal shows there are things specifically for the guys to do. One idea is, if in a group, to take separate cars and allow those who wish to leave early to do so. Bringing your wedding party can also help share in the planning process by allowing others to offer their opinions and thoughts about the potential choices. Children are usually welcomed and are often let in for free. However, think twice about bringing an infant in a stroller as they are hard to maneuver through the crowds. In addition, strollers are often not allowed altogether because they can potentially create a hazard for the child and for those in the crowd.

It’s All About The Fashion!
Many, but not all, bridal shows have a fashion presentation. The Bridal Fantasy Events of Jacksonville boast of having one of the more superior runway bridal fashion events in the state of Florida. It is absolutely spectacular! When you first arrive ask when the fashion show is scheduled and begin your day knowing when you can be expected to be seated. Everybody wants to get a good seat for the fashion event, however, try not to sacrifice quality time with the vendors to sit down an hour before the fashion show just to get a good seat. Balance this out. For an extra fee the Bridal Fantasy Events of Jacksonville can sell you and your guests a VIP ticket that includes, in part, reserved seating to the fashion event so you won’t miss time with the wedding professionals you came to see so consider purchasing these for you and your entourage. All in all make sure you get to the see the wedding businesses and the rest will work itself out.

Photography and Video
Be courteous to the show producers and the many folks who have worked hard to put together the big event. Photography and video may or may not be permitted for personal use in the fashion show; however, if it is allowed it should never be reproduced without the written consent of the bridal expo personnel. In case of the wedding vendors and their booths no one will likely stop you; however, you should ask permission before taking pictures or video of their displays. All of this is very good advice and you’ll appreciate this information later.


 

In addition, here are also a few practical strategies when dealing with vendors that will help you get the most out of your show.

Jacksonville bridal show 2014Vendor information. If a vendor gives you information that you especially like and want to follow up with at a later date, put that information in a separate bag, not with all the other stuff you may collect. Bring your own light-weight carrying bag. Some vendors may give you one, and you may get a bag at the registration when you walk in; however, use your “own” bag to separate vendor information that is of special interest to you and use the “show” bag for everything else.

Bring a red pen. Another idea is to bring a red pen and mark the vendors’ information in a special way that will indicate your level of interest. Make notes on business cards, the show brochure or flyer for easy reference later. Keep in mind the event itself may have a website listing of the participating vendors on their website to refer back to as well.

Bring a small notebook and pen, ipad or tablet, or other recording devices. You never know what tips or ideas you’ll find and want to write down. Use your ipad and smart phone to take pictures and video of the different booths and vendors. There’s so much to see that by the time you get home, you may forget. As a professional courtesy make sure to ask permission to take pictures and video of the vendors and their work. Once again, they can’t stop you but small polite gestures will go a long way. You’ll thank us later! Don’t forget to use the show’s website for any listing of the participating businesses available after the event.

Bring your personal planner. Bring your planner, tablet, and/or smartphone so you will have your bridal shower, rehearsal, wedding and other important dates handy. These items can also be helpful when you want to make an appointment with your favorite vendors.

Bring your checkbook. In case you want to book any services or give a deposit to hold a date, remember to bring your checkbook. If you are comfortable with the vendor, by all means, go for it. You will often find special discounts are available only at the show. As with any business contract proceed with caution and choose wisely. Read the fine print.

Jacksonville bridal show 2014Ask for referrals. If you see one of the vendors you have already hired at a show, ask them for referrals for other reputable vendors you need. They may have worked with these vendors at previous weddings and can provide valuable information.

Create an action plan. Remember, if you go in with a plan of action, you most likely will get so much more done or at least gather enough information to make informed decisions when reviewing the info at your leisure.

Visit the show’s website before you go. Make sure you visit the show’s website or listing before you head in. Look for ways to get discounted tickets, a schedule of events, show specials, and the list of exhibitors.

Visit the show’s website after you get back. Refer back to this information after the show if it is still available to refresh your memory.

Have FUN! Jacksonville wedding expos and bridal shows are great for planning quickly and they can also be lots of fun while you do it. Savor the free food samples, win valuable prizes, enjoy the fashion show, and most of all don’t forget to have a good time. It’s not every day you get to plan your wedding and it’s not every day you get to plan your wedding like this, so make sure you enjoy every minute!

Have a good tip you’d like to share? Please let us know! And come see us at the next Bridal Fantasy Event at the Sawgrass Marriott!
