Wedding Fayre Inspiration

Wedding Fayres– so many reasons to attend!

Many brides and grooms planning their big day will at some point ask – should I attend a wedding fayre? It’s not compulsory – after all there are so many online resources to help you plan your big day, however there are a lot of reasons why you should attend.

  • Inspiration

Since deciding to tie the knot, how many hours have you spent on Pinterest or searching online for ideas? Probably too many to count. However, nothing compares to seeing things in person. Wedding Fayres showcase local suppliers, so you’ll get to see a huge selection of ‘everything wedding’ from invites and favours to dresses and honeymoon ideas. There’s likely to be a lot of things you’ve not seen or thought of before, and a few things you didn’t even realise you wanted!

  • Fun, fun, fun

Planning your wedding should be fun, and while attending a wedding fayre might seem like hard work, it can actually be great fun. Go with the right attitude and the day may well bring some unexpected benefits – such as tasting the best cake of your life or finding your perfect florist. It can be a great day out for you and those involved in planning your wedding, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to get down to some serious planning.

  • Find key suppliers

Wedding Fayres are a fantastic opportunity to meet suppliers face-to-face, you’ll not only find out first hand the quality of what they have to offer, but you’ll be able to choose those who made a really good impression on you – they came across as professional, reliable and easy to communicate with. For those who have left everything to the last minute this is also a great opportunity to find what you need before time runs out!  

  • Discover the latest wedding trends

With so many displays in one place, it’s easy to see what’s interesting for both right now and next year. You’ll have the opportunity to chat with the suppliers about what other brides are asking for – you may find out things you hadn’t considered for yourself.

  • Wedding discounts and freebies

Suppliers often prepare special offers for wedding fayres, such as price reductions on their services. There may also be an opportunity for you to negotiate a few freebies.

  • Cake tasting

Most cake makers and caterers will have free samples to try – so take a taste adventure and enjoy finding your perfect wedding cake. You might even discover flavours you didn’t know you liked!

  • Dresses, dresses, dresses

For most brides the dresses are often the biggest draw at any fayre. It’s an opportunity to see and try on dozens of dresses – just make sure you take lots of pictures so when you go home you remember the ones you liked.
