Whether you are planning your wedding yourself or are hiring a planner to do everything for you, one of the things you must do is attend at least one wedding show. Even if you think you know exactly what you want you will get even more ideas and inspiration through researching what the Asian wedding market has to offer. My husband and I went to Asian Bride Live when we were planning our wedding and was blown away by the variety of offering from cakes to cars. Vendors to your left, vendors to your right, live catwalk shows ahead and women everywhere! It was really nice to walk around and talk to the stall holders and meet the people behind their brands. As I always say, if you are going to book someone look at how they present themselves to you, how they treat you and if they are flexible to your needs. If someone shows great passion for their work then trust that they will do a great job for you and your wedding.
If you still think going to a wedding show is a waste of time just remember you will usually get a discounted show price for anything booked on the day. The stallholders are investing in their business by being there so they will offer a special rate to customers in order to secure bookings and make it worthwhile for them. Win win. Here are a few snaps from the day...
