Ask Abby: Why Should I Go to a Bridal Show?

There are so many reasons you should be going to bridal shows if you haven't already!! While it does normally cost to get in, you can benefit so much! Check out our top 10 reasons to go!

1. You can pick up a complementary copy of San Diego Style Weddings! That's enough reason right there!

2. Some shows do giveaways for free tickets on their social media, so pick your shows and follow along to see if they do a giveaway!

3. Most shows sell their tickets for cheaper if you buy them in advance instead of at the door.

4. If your bridesmaids aren't all BFFs or come from different friend circles, this is one fun way for everyone to bond.

5. You get to see catering vendors in action. This is way better than the Costco free samples and you may just find your perfect caterer!

6. Inspiration is everywhere! Checking out the various vendors and their booths is bound to give you some new ideas for what you want at your wedding.

7. Most bridal shows will have a Fashion Show where you can check out gowns and get some fresh new ideas for when it's time for you to Say Yes to the Dress.

8. There are photo booths, with props, and they make for the cutest Instagram after.

9. The plethora of vendors at these shows is a great way to start looking at what you need and want for your wedding.

10.  While it may be a little overwhelming, these shows will leave you excited to plan your wedding and with enough business cards to get you going on your vendor search!

We'll be at The San Diego Wedding Party Expo at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla this Sunday from 11-5 so make sure to come get your complementary copy and check out some amazing wedding vendors!
