It is never too early to start planning your big day. There are so many details related to different fields of expertise and interest. From flowers and table centrepieces, to caterers and bartenders, from colours and themes, to photography and videography–it’s all on your plate. If you said yes, then read why you need to attend at least one wedding open house or bridal show. 

Why Attend a Wedding Open House  

1- Get Inspired  

Need us say more? What says inspiration more than a carefully selected group of wedding experts, each in their own field, displaying their services and the latest in event trends and design all under one roof. You also get to mix with other couples and probably have a chat or two about your plans and ideas. You might even make friends. 

2- Save Time and Money   

Commuting to and from, and booking to meet, different vendors takes a toll on many couples and adds to their already busy schedules in the months leading to their wedding. Meeting different vendors in one place saves time, efforts, and cost. It also gives you the opportunity to imagine the actual process of working with all these people to bring your dream day to life. If the wedding show is in an events venue, bonus! Look around; it might be the one for you.

3- Socialize with Locals

There is nothing like connecting with people in your own area. Real people, that is–not just distant searches on Pinterest and window shopping the search engine. You will benefit from advice and practical tips from vendors and other couples who experience the same surrounding conditions you do. Even if you do not hire a certain vendor for your wedding, you still know they are there and what their special talent is for that next time you might need them.      

4- Have Fun    

Instead of you doing so much work and research on your own, get to enjoy the fact that other specialists are presenting to you the best of their ideas. Remember that you do not have to stress over attending the open house. It is a light-hearted event. Have quality time with your significant other while walking around or sipping a drink. Open houses are fun events too, after all!  

5- Win/win

It is a win / win situation when you attend a wedding show. If all these reasons do not tempt you, you might win a prize, giveaway, ticket, or free service. You also get to try free samples of products like food and beverage. And who does not like that!  

If you are a couple looking to plan your wedding and searching for a venue and ideas for the big day, come to Old Timers Cabin in Edmonton, Alberta on March 9, 2019 for a Special Wedding Open House.

It is a FREE event designed to help couples, inspire them, and show them around the Cabin, while meeting a select group of vendors. Check the Facebook event page and mark your calendar!
