Tips to help you plan your day at the Bridal Extravaganza
Save Time and Money! Attending The Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta can be very helpful in planning your wedding. You will be able to meet and ask questions from many wedding professionals all under one roof! You will want to gather information, compare prices and services, register for prizes, see the latest fashions, get great new ideas and just have fun!
Where can I purchase tickets? Can I buy tickets at the door for the Bridal Extravaganza? Yes. Tickets can be purchased at the door on the day of the show. However, we do recommend that you save time and $ when you register in advance and purchase tickets online. General Admission Tickets are $15.00 in advance and $20.00 cash at the door.
Where is the Bridal Extravaganza located? The show will be held on August 14, 2016 at the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart Building 2 located at 230 Ted Turner Dr NW (formerly Spring Street NW)
Should I bring someone with me? Yes! Your fiancé, family, wedding party and friends can be a huge help as you plan your wedding. They can help you collect information, provide valuable input, give you support and assist in some BIG decisions. Attendance of children is not recommended. Also, strollers are not permitted.
What time should I arrive? It’s best to arrive early so that you can enjoy all of the special events at the Bridal Extravaganza. Doors open at 1pm and the first 200 brides will receive a swag bag. Remember you will need time to meet all of the vendors and sample special treats, ooh and ahh over the tabletop galleries. Watch one of the two couture fashion shows for dress and tuxedo ideas!
What should I bring to the Bridal Extravaganza? Pre-printed labels or business cards. We highly recommend that you bring pre-printed labels or business cards with you, as this will save you time when you register for prizes at individual booths. With your pre-printed labels, you will not have to fill out forms over and over. We recommend that you include your name, address, phone, email and wedding date, if known.
Checkbook or Credit Cards You may just find that “must have” vendor and are ready to reserve your date. Some vendors do offer special show discounts.
Email Create a temporary e-mail to be used while you are planning your wedding. The amount of offers you receive at first may seem overwhelming, but take the time to read them or you may miss out on some very good deals. This can also help you keep all “wedding” emails in one location. We do not recommend that you use your professional email.
See the entire Bridal Extravaganza Use your program to help guide you throughout the show. Make sure you check the schedule of events so that you can plan out your afternoon as you visit the exhibitors, wedding galleries, fashion shows and more! Plan to spend several hours as you walk down every aisle and collect any information you are interested in and take it home to look over again at your leisure.
Wear comfortable shoes!
Questions Bring lots of questions. Wedding professionals are happy to answer all of your questions. They want to help you and you are under no pressure to buy from them, so find out everything you need to know.
