12 Questions To Ask At A Wedding Show

Yesterday, I updated my 25 tips to help you make the most of attending a bridal show for 2019. In that post, I encouraged brides to bring a list of questions. If you aren’t sure what to ask, that’s perfectly okay! Here are twelve great questions – some even hard-hitting! – to ask when meeting vendors at your local bridal show.

“Are you available for my wedding date?”
It may seem obvious, but this is the very first question you should ask; especially at larger shows with hundreds of vendors exhibiting. If the vendor is already booked, it’ll save both of you a lot of valuable time.
