Top 10 Tips for Attending the Grand Rapids Bridal Show

January 6-7, 2023 at DeVos Place, Grand Rapids

1

CREATE A WEDDING EMAIL ADDRESS

Set up an email account just for the wedding. Using this email account at the show helps you stay organized and prevents spam following the wedding.

2

PRE-REGISTER

Pre-register for a free ticket. Your registration enters you into our door prize drawings. We give away over $10,000 in products and services.

3

BRING LABELS

Most exhibiting companies have ‘enter to win’ contests or show specials at their booths. By having pre-printed labels with your name, wedding date and contact info you can enter quickly.

4

EAT A GOOD BREAKFAST

Although many shows offer cake and food samples, hor d’oeuvres and other treats, it is still not a meal and you don’t want hunger to interrupt your fun.

5

WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES

You will be on your feet for most of the time and generally covering a lot of ground, so wear comfortable shoes to keep your feet happy.

6

TAKE NOTES

Bring a notebook and pen with you. Take pictures and notes about the exhibitors you meet, deadlines for discounts, and ideas that you get during the fashion show.

7

INVITE A FRIEND

Friends and bridesmaids can help you stay organized and they will love the opportunity to feel involved in planning your special day.

8

GROOMS CAN ATTEND

The groom can help the bride make decisions about wedding services such as invitations and flowers as well as check out “manly” wedding services.

9

HAVE FUN

Make a day of it. Enjoy the opportunity to meet so many great wedding professionals in one location, stay to watch the fashion show, and maybe have lunch in downtown GR. Concessions will also be available at DeVos Place.
