How to Navigate a Wedding Show

By: Turf Valley Resort / 15 Feb 2024

The Ultimate Guide to Attending Turf Valley's Wedding Show

Every wedding show is unique, though most share a common theme of assembling a large group of wedding vendors in one place. It's usually held in a convention center or hotel and is designed to connect engaged couples with service providers during the wedding planning process.

Whether you're just starting your wedding planning journey or looking for those final touches, we will share advice to make the most of a wedding show and navigate the event smoothly.  

Just for Fun!

First, enjoy the experience! Weddings shows are meant to be fun (so is the wedding planning process). Bring your partner, friends, or family; anyone who's excited to help you plan your wedding. Together you can gather invaluable ideas and connect with vendors. Take advantage of giveaways, contests, and great advice from wedding industry experts to make the wedding planning process enjoyable.

Inspiration & Ideas

A wedding show is a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration for couples planning their big day. This is a first glimpse into getting ideas you may have never considered before but really love! Tour three uniquely decorated ballrooms, each with a curated collection of themed décor. Experience "fake" weddings with the latest wedding fashions and designs. Choose which wedding themes appeal the most and discover budget-friendly options for your dream wedding.

Navigating the Vendor Maze

Attending a wedding show provides an excellent opportunity to meet and connect with various wedding vendors, from photographers and caterers to wedding planners and decorators. These relationships are incredibly important to the success of your big day. Meeting someone in person before your day will give you a great foundation for your relationship and help to establish the much needed trust between you!

Upon entry to the show, we will scan your ticket and provide you with a swag bag and event guide that lists each vendor by category. A map of our ballrooms is included along with the vendor's location by room.
