Seattle Wedding Show 2014 How-To: 5 Steps for Success

Tuesday, January 7 2014

On January 11 and 12 the Seattle Wedding Show will bring together the best-of-the-best vendors under one roof. The show offers couples an opportunity to meet face-to-face with event specialists eager to make your day picture perfect. With over 400 local, regional, and national vendors including event facilities, bakeries, bridal boutiques, caterers, disc jockeys, florists, jewelers, photographers, transportation providers, wedding consultants and more the thought of walking into the Washington State Convention Center and narrowing them down can be a bit overwhelming. Being the wedding show veterans that we are, we’re here to offer some tricks of the trade to make your experience worthwhile. Below are our 5 Steps for Wedding Show Success:

Step 1: Before the show, download the 2014 Vendor List and look it over. Highlight any vendors you think you might be interested in meeting with. Checking out the vendors websites (also listed) will help you decide if the vendor fits your vision for your day.

Step 2: Download the 2014 Floor Plan. Mark the location of the vendors you wish to visit and then map the most convenient route.

Step 3: January 11 is the best day to bring friends and family with you to the show. On this day you’ll want to collect information and talk to vendors, go to the fashion show and sample cake. (Remember, your $17 ticket can be used for attendance both days, just don’t forget to get your hand stamped).

Step 4: Go home and look through all of the information you collected. Make notes on what you have left to accomplish.

Step 5: Come back January 12 and book vendors (some offer significant deals if you book the day of the show) and revisit the booths for which you’d like more information.

Hope this helps! If done right this show could save you many days of planning in the future. Be sure to stop by our booth to receive a complimentary copy of our Spring/Summer 2014 issue AND the 2014 Seattle Bride Resource Guide!
