One thing I haven't spent much time doing outside of Facebook is advertising my business and getting my name out there. So when I heard about the K105.3 Bridal Fair I decided it would be a great spot to do my first vendor show since I'm interested in working on more weddings than I have in the past this year. And last I knew Jackson no longer has the belly to baby expo which would be PERFECT for a "newborn" booth!
So for someone who had never even been to a bridal show before, where do you start on designing your first booth?? Where does anyone start with any DIY project these days? Pinterest of course! I read through hundreds of articles from other photographers about what to expect, what to have available etc. before I finally found a few ideas that fit my own style pretty well to use as a starting point. I was thinking country/rustic which is definitely my style! I'm pretty happy with how it all came together out of the storage totes I've been collecting all the pieces into over the past 3-4 months!
I had a great time and talked to so many brides and their family and friends. All in all, I'm calling it a success! Not only did I get to talk to lots of brides, I was able to connect with quite a few other local wedding businesses, which is always great to have other great vendors to suggest when people ask for referrals! I can't wait to work with my new brides at some new, fun, unique & personal wedding locations!
Don't forget, 15% off all wedding packages ends February 1st! This is a great way to get an upgraded package!
I'll be back for more next year!
