Plan your wedding in stages and create a priority list. Focus on the services you need first and narrow your choices down at the show. Take photos and notes of unique ideas, priority and wish-list items as you see them so you can refer to them when you are ready and revisit them at a future show.

Be ready to set appointments with your top choices. This will save you time following up with vendors later and many vendors offer special incentives when you book an appointment at the show.

Depending on the venue and time of year, the Florida Wedding Expo shows are very large with interesting exhibits and displays in every corner of the room.

After you’ve compared the extensive variety of companies exhibiting at the show, you may decide you’ve found the perfect one for you. DON’T DELAY! Many wedding dates get booked up way in advance, so if you are ready to secure a company for your wedding, lock in your date while you’re at the show!

Create labels ahead of time that include the following information; bride's name, bride's email, mailing address, phone number, fiancé's name, wedding date and location. This will save you time and allow you to sign up at vendor booths without having to rewrite everything multiple times.

There is something for everyone at the Florida Wedding Expo, and it's good to have someone to share the experience with.

Register for a separate email address that you can use to register for the show and when filling out vendor’s forms. All the valuable wedding information and special offers you receive will be easy to keep track of and when the wedding is over you can cancel the account and not receive any unwanted wedding information.
