My opinion of the wedding expo


Being able to type a post while sitting in traffic must be one of the biggest advantages of a blackberry!

Over the weekend I posted a blog post informing you all of my excitement regarding the wedding expo and the venue hunt. Well it was exhausting in all fairness! (Which in turn reflects just how productive we were!)

Left me start by saying the best possible advise I was given regarding the expo was to attend on the Sunday afternoon. The Sunday afternoon was so busy I wasn’t sure if I was Artha or Martha! I cannot/ refuse to think what it would have been like on the Saturday morning. My opinion of the expo, and I shouldn’t say this too loud, but it is a bit overrated! The wedding workshop we attended earlier the year was a lot more informative. And with the help of google and referrals from the different venues, you have more than enough options and choices!

That said however, I would have been disappointed if I didn’t attend! I wouldn’t have taken this advise from anyone, but then I am stubborn like that!

Advise to any vendor considering advertising at the expo, you need to be exceptionally unique and original to be remembered! So if you are not going to be, please have enough brochures and cards. Or better yet maximise google search engines and have a decent/ stunning/ informative website!

More on the venues tomorrow!

  1. Come get married in Badplaas. It’s quiet and peaceful and the only noise is that made by you and your guests :-)

  2. Glad to hear that you’ve enjoyed it so much :)

  3. Bleh, sounds rather disappointing. :-(

  5. Wow, I am so far behind with reading blogs I was not even aware of the wedding plans. I am soo, soo happy for you and your little Logan. Kobus is a lucky man :)

  6. I have a very similar opinion of the expo. I think its now far more useful for co-ordinators and planners than it is for brides. That said, you have to go at least once :P
