Should I bring someone with me to the Expo?
Yes! Your fiancé, family members, wedding party, and friends can be a great asset to you as you plan your wedding. They can collect information, provide valuable input, give you support, and assist in decision making. Bring your crew, group, helpers, tribe, and make a day of it. The more the merrier.
Can I bring my future partner?
Yes! About 20% of show attendees are couples.
Can I bring Children?
Even though this is a family friendly event, we encourage you to leave the children at home. Over the years we have found that the little ones tend to get bored after about 10 minutes of walking through the Expo. This event is enjoyed much more when you can leisurely stroll, rather than being rushed with crying little ones in tow.
Can I make bookings that day?
Yes, many vendors will take bookings or deposits. Be sure to bring your checkbook and to inquire about refund policies.
What time should I arrive?
It’s best to arrive early and allow yourself time to talk with our many professionals. You can stay as long as you want. Remember, you’ll need the time to meet with dozens of bridal businesses, sample wedding cakes and wedding caterer offerings, watch the hourly bridal fashion previews, and much more! So, wear comfortable shoes and enjoy your day!
How many, and what types of businesses will I see at The Bridal Expo?
Most all of Southern Idaho’s wedding businesses exhibit at The Bridal Expo. The more than 50 types of wedding products and services exhibited cover everything from the necessities you’ll need for your wedding day, to planning your honeymoon and even settling into your new married life.
What should I bring to the event?
- Pre-Printed Address Labels
Many of the vendors will ask you for contact information and enter you in drawings to win prizes for your wedding day. Filling out your name and phone number over and over can get tiring.
- Checkbook/Credit Card
Some vendors offer special show discounts if you book them the day of the show. Keep in mind certain vendors can only handle one wedding per day and their date books fill quickly. For that must-have vendor, be ready to reserve your date!
Do you have a fashion show?
Due to the fact that many of the beautiful gowns that are shown in fashion shows get dirty or damaged, they must be marked as used or pre-worn and sold at a discount. Instead of losing money by having a fashion show, our vendors have decided it was better to pass on huge savings on gowns to the attendees and they are more than happy to make appointments in their shops for personal consultations so you may try on the gowns to see what they look like on you. Instead of a fashion show we have live models on our stage with beautiful gowns throughout the day.
