So, you've spotted a wedding show in the area, you've marked the date in your diary, you've convinced your other half &/or family & friends to come with you... but how do you get the most out of the wedding shows you visit? It can be a little overwhelming when you first visit one, so here's a few things I thought would help you. Of course if you think of anything else or want some more info, then please do pop me an email.
If you run a business based in the wedding industry, then chances are you've considered exhibiting at local wedding shows to reach more couples & tell them about your services.
It can seem a big step from just "shouting" with other wedding companies within the free confines of various wedding groups, but shows can be a very good way to push your business to the next level.
So how DO you go about deciding who to give your hard earned money to, & then getting the most out of the experience? I hope the following pointers are useful to you. Once you've had a read, I'd love to hear from you & hopefully meet you at an upcoming wedding show.
I heard a dreadful thing earlier. Someone said the phrase “same old boring wedding shows” 😳😳I know right?? As you well know, NOT ALL SHOWS ARE CREATED EQUAL!
Beckie Melvin Events are something different. Why?
Well... we are relaxed. There’s no hard sell, just a good chat with friends you haven’t met yet.
The laughter!! Always laughter at the wedding shows.
There’s only a small number of industry representatives per show - why fill a room with 5+ photographers / florists etc? It benefits no one.
So that’s 2 plus points. It’s a friendly face at the door - in fact the same name as is on the business, & who you’ll have spoken to on email / Facebook. Me! I’m so proud of my shows & I love the people I’m able to bring to you. SUCH talent.
What else? We’re free entry, always. With free goody bags, always.
Plus we’re family friendly, with no over crowded rooms just plenty of room to breathe & dream.
The venues!! I only work with ones that fit with our ethos - unique, comfortable yet exciting, friendly staff...
Finally I thought I’d pop up some of my latest reviews - have a read, make your own minds up, & I hope to meet you soon. Big kisses xx
Honey, I'm home!!! Oh my life what a fab day, honestly, could we be any more chilled at our wedding shows? No hard sell, just good honest passion for what we all do. Thanks to the wedding specialists who exhibited, the engaged couples who visited, all those who supported us, who brought us lunch... & generally ensured the smooth running of the day. As ever, you've been amazing <3 I'm now tireder than a small cat but still smiling, as always. If you need me, gimme a few days to get back on my feet but in the meantime, check the website for updates :) Big kisses all & thanks again. Bxx
It's been a few weeks since I did an update on availability, so actually it's been a few MONTHS! I'm very out of practice but hope this year is the year I get better at blogging.
Our first event of 2017 was The Grand Hall in Bedford on Sunday 8 January, we had a fantastic turnout, so I fully expect the rest of 2017 to follow suit! (In fact the picture below is from Sunday's show, taken around 10 minutes after we opened)
(Sadly no photography slots available this year at the moment)
