Why you should go to wedding exhibitions

Champagne glasses Something amazing has happened! You're engaged. And after the congratulations have died down and the planning has started in earnest, wouldn't it be great if there was a one stop shop where you could go and get all your wedding queries answered?

Well, there is! Heading to a wedding exhibition is a great way of seeing loads of things and getting your questions answered all at once. Here at West Park our wedding fair will be happening on 14 September 2014, check out our guide to wedding exhibitions and see why you should consider going to one:

Saving some pennies

Wedding fairs are full of suppliers who want to get you to part with your hard earned cash in exchange for their services. As there's so much competition in one room, there will often be deals on offer to tempt you, so make sure you haggle if you find something you like – if you don't ask, you don't get! It's a great idea to check out what suppliers are going to be there beforehand and make a list of what interests you. We've got some amazing exhibitors coming to our wedding fair at West Park on 14 September, check out our list.

Fun

The phrase “wedding exhibition” can be enough to strike fear into the heart of any groom, but the day really will be just a lot of fun! There usually isn't any obligation to buy anything, you can just wander round and see what you like. As suppliers try to lure you to their stand you'll often get free stuff too! And if you really can't convince your other half to go you'll have a great giggle coming for a day out with the girls.

A sneaky peek

Wedding exhibitions are a really good way of getting a sneak peek at some amazing venues where you might consider having your wedding. You're free to stroll round the rooms and grounds as you please, and usually the whole wedding team will be on standby to answer any questions. At West Park we have some beautiful rooms where you can hold your ceremony and reception, and you'll be able to see them all at our wedding exhibition in September.

Contacts and ideas

If you're stuck for ideas for your big day wedding exhibitions are a fab starting point. With so much to see you're bound to find something that inspires you, from bunting and tealights to photo booths and cakes.

And you'll get some really good contacts too. Most exhibitors will have preferred suppliers that they've worked with before, which can be a valuable resource for you to tap into.
