Are bridal shows worth attending? In a word - absolutely!
But first, what is a bridal fair or bridal expo? A bridal fair is a showcase of offerings by different vendors who are involved in producing a wedding. They are held in large hotel ballrooms and convention centers. You will find bridal shops and tuxedo stores, doctor caterers, wedding coordinators, travel agents, florists, wedding cake designers, photographers, country clubs and other venues and many other vendors showcasing their goods and services.There is usually a door charge for attending, generally between $5-15. Many shows have great door prizes and giveaways.
