What to do at Wedding Expos:
Brittany from BB Jean Events here, guest blogging on expo navigation! If you’ve never attended a wedding expo (or you have but you’re looking for a better plan of attack!) you’re in the right place!

On the flip side, they can also be overwhelming, noisy and a major energy suck…if you skip a little pre-attendance planning. Follow these tips and make your day fun and productive!
Before the Expo
Map it out. If the vendor list is available ahead of time, take a scan through it and star off the people you must absolutely check out and see. If there’s a map, make sure you star those stops so they aren’t missed.
Make some custom info labels. We’re not talking re-using your same old address labels here folks! Head to any office supply store and get some address labels, head home and get the following on them: Your name (first and last), your fiance’s name (first and last), mailing address, email address, contact #, wedding date, wedding city.
