Going to the wedding fair? READ THIS FIRST! | PRECIOUS Wedding
Updated: Apr 10
The public perception about wedding fair is that you can get cheap deals. Whether you’re getting additional freebies or paying less, whichever it may be, it’s definitely worth the trip. Wedding fair often promotes a one-time off deal with limited time offer. While enjoying good deals, you can be a better shopper during this special period. As some of you may have experienced, fairs are usually crowded, and you only have so little time to explore the entire exhibition. Here are some tips on the things you should know on exploring wedding fairs.
1. MAYBE YOUR FIRST SURVEY AT THE WEDDING FAIR ISN'T A GOOD IDEA
We consult many couples everyday, and we found that those who survey bridal packages for the first time at a wedding fair tend to be quick to judge and leave without fully understanding the offer and services. They aren't sure what is best for them nor know how to negotiate because when receive information for the first time, you need time to digest. Often end up making impulse decision, or end up getting nothing after going through all the hustle.
On the other hand, there is no room for gown fitting. We highly encourage brides to visit the showroom before signing up at the fair. A wedding gown is a focal point of the wedding, therefore it is extremely important for you to browse through the gown collection before signing up a deal and ensure you’ve seen something you like. This should be the first thing you do.
With that said, if you are in a rush, you will not be able to make the decision even if bridal houses offered their BEST deal to you. Therefore, you’ll miss out the great offers, which defeats the purpose of you visiting a wedding fair in the first place.
While all packages may seem the same in general, it varies in terms of products like the size of your album and finishing, number of poses (photos), wedding gown selections, whether the photo shoot is done locally or overseas, and most importantly - price. When you know what you want, it’s easier for the consultants to streamline the packages that suits you without wasting too much time finding your needs in a bustling exhibition.
2. DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST
Do online survey! Shortlist about 3 – 5 bridal houses that you like, and go ahead to do the following steps.
Request for a quotation online and do comparison that is inline with your budget
Check with friends who are married for insights
Set appointment to try on a few gowns (highly encouraged before signing any package)
Request to browse for more actual client portfolio
Check out the bridal house environment
Understand the terms and conditions and other cost involved
Be familiar with the process
Once you’ve done the above, you would have already known which bridal house you like the most. You are now ready to go straight to the booth and check out the best deal from the wedding fair!
3. BEST TIME TO VISIT THE FAIR
Wedding fairs are usually held over the weekend. While most people are only free on Saturdays and Sundays, if you genuinely want more time to understand the package, it is best to visit on Fridays as there are lesser crowd. You get to have more time for discussion in a less stressful condition.
4. QUE CALL SYSTEM (“公 CALL”)
What is this? Que Call System is newly implemented by the Bridal Association, where visitors will be in que to visit the bridal booth next in the list (instead of walking freely).
The system will fairly dispense visitors to each bridal booth so they receives the same number of visitors, therefore all bridal booths have a fair chance of introducing their products and services to visitors for those intend to check out new brands.
This is great for those first time surveyor. However, if you have already shortlisted your top 3 bridal shop, and you do not wish to visit others, you can tell the organizer at the registration counter and they will bring you to the shop you want to visit. Note: Que Call Systems may vary with other bridal fairs organizers. This does not represent all exhibition.
5. PAY MORE DOWNPAYMENT TO GET DEALS ON-TOP-OF DEALS! Who doesn't like more freebies? Pay more downpayment to get hidden deals, perhaps only in PRECIOUS. :)
