Take Your Time

There is no rush. You don’t win a prize for getting through the show first. Talk to the Wedding Pros and ask questions. Take notes and observe. Go through a second or third time. Your perfect Wedding Pro might be the one you didn’t see the first time around.

The best time to go to the show is actually closer to the middle or end of the show. There is usually a big rush right at the beginning and the Wedding Pro...

Take Notes

Bring a notebook or something to take notes when you talk to Wedding Pros, or make notes on the brochures or cards they give you. Sometimes you will discuss a special price, or something that they said that you want to remember, or even just something you liked or didn’t like about that Pro. Keep a record. 

Wedding shows are overwhelming. There is a lot of noise, a lot to see, a lot of people, and you get a lot of...

Snap A Pic Of Who You Like

While at a wedding show, if you like what you are hearing from a Wedding Professional, and want to really remember them, use your phone to snap a picture of their sign or logo so you don't get home and say "Now what was the name of the one that I liked?"

Leave the Entourage at Home

You don’t want to make wedding decisions alone - and you shouldn’t!

Bring your fiancé and mom or MOH to help you with decisions, but fill the rest of the gang in later.

Kids especially can be difficult to handle during wedding shows. The cro...

Check out the Wedding Show’s website or social media to see what Wedding Professionals will be there, so you can make a plan as to who you need to talk to.

If the Show has an advance map of w...

We all know that Queen Victoria was the one who started the tradition of wearing a white wedding gown. Previously, women wore red or another color of simply a nice or new dress. While Queen Victoria did seem to be the pioneer for many of today's wedding traditions, she wasn't the only one at that wedding who started a tradition.

Her husband, Prince Albert, also broke from tradition in that he wore his military dress uniform...

Queen Elizabeth II has been the only Queen of England that most of us have ever known. But despite what we all think of royalty and their riches, they have to deal with many of the realities that everyone else has to, and the queen is no exception. Her country suffered greatly during World War II but she held herself to the same standards as the rest of her citizens, even when it came to her wedding.

 Cloth and clothing were...

With all the excitement building for this weekend's royal wedding, I thought we could explore some well known and not so well-known facts about historical royal weddings. First up: Queen Victoria's headpiece.
