Sure, weddings are exciting and fun. But they also require a great deal of planning, and the cost can be intimidating.
That’s why attending a wedding exhibition in Surat is always a good idea if your marriage in India is on the horizon. To help you ace your next wedding exhibit, here are six essential tips to ensure you find everything you’re looking for!
1. Arrive Early
First and foremost, make sure you get there early. After all, you have no idea how crowded it’ll be. Plus, you have more time to browse the different vendors and displays by showing up early. If you’re lucky, you’ll also avoid the crowds and get a closer look at the items you’re interested in.
2. Prepare for a Long Day (Hint: Dress Comfortably!)
Comfort is key. That means ditching the pumps and the high heels and opting for something far more comfortable. Remember, you may be walking and/or standing for many hours! As for how you should dress, go for layers that allow you to adjust according to temperature. Remember, the more people who attend, the hotter it’ll be at the exhibit.
3. Bring a Purse or a Tote Bag
Whether it’s a purse, tote bag, or even a backpack, make sure you bring something for all the brochures, business cards, and other materials from the vendors you’re interested in. This also keeps your hands free. How big of a bag should you bring? Bigger is always better.
4. Put Your Phone to Work!
The exhibits are wall-to-wall with different vendors and displays – keeping track of everything is impossible. Take photos with your cell phone of the items that are of particular interest to you so you can review them afterward. It also wouldn’t hurt to write this down, whether sending yourself an email while you’re there or tracking everything the old fashion way: with a pen and a notebook. You’ll be glad you kept track of all this when it’s time to make decisions.
5. Plan Out Your Visit
It’s one thing to browse the exhibit just for fun. But if you have a wedding coming up, then you need to make the most of your visit. Decide ahead of time the vendors you want to visit and bring a list of questions to ask them to avoid forgetting any important details.
6. Take Your Time
Remember, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Take your time at the different vendors and displays. Sure, you also need to ask questions and take notes, but this should be an enjoyable experience, too. Take your time and have fun!
The best part about going to a wedding exhibition, though, is the sheer number of vendors and displays you’ll find. Translation: They’ll have everything you need.
