We are sure that any well organised bride will be planning to go along – but if you aren;t quite convinced then here are a few reasons why a local wedding fair is a savvy way to spend an afternoon for any newly engaged couple.

1/ It would take you weeks to research, visit and meet with all the businesses which will be gathered at a wedding fair. Going to a wedding fair will save you time and if you have been dragged along, or are dragging your partner along at least you can get it all over with in one short afternoon.

2/ It’s a great bonding day for the girls. If your husband-to-be isn’t that interested in the wedding planning then leave him at home and use the day out to bond with your bridesmaids, and the prospective mother-in-law. It is a casual and fun day where you can enjoy being the bride-to-be and talking about your dress, your plans and your special day.

3/ You will get a good snoop around the venue. If you have an imaginary checklist of things that a must for your wedding venue then there is no better way to investigate than at a wedding fair. you can check out the rooms, the grounds, see how the venue have laid out the reception venue and get a real feel for the place. You will also get to meet the staff face to face rather than dealing with them over the phone, or vie the internet.

4/ You can check your dates – not only with the venue but with other vendors too. If you are browsing online, or making your own enquiries you may be left with your heart set on one photographer/ florist / venue / car – however they may not be available on your date. At a wedding fair you can check with the vendor before you get your heart set on their product.

5/ You may be able to pick up some discounts and deals. For example some vendors may have an excellent relationship with that venue and they might be able to offer a discount. or deal at the wedding fair for any bookings. If you are on a tight budget it is worthwhile having a look.

So if you are newly engaged and planning a wedding we recommend that you visit a wedding fair in Ballymena to help you make your plans.
