Wedding Show Survival!

Happy New Year! It's 2010 and for those of you who became engaged over the holiday season it's more than just a new year - but a new cycle in your life!

It may only be January 4th, but Wedding Show season is upon us and a great starting point to gather information, meet great vendors and build your knowledge on the wedding industry.

Remember to wear comfortable shoes, you will do a lot of walking and standing on concrete floors, leave your coat in the car or coat check and wear layers as it will get very warm in the exhibition halls. In my british slang I would say to wear a 'bum bag', which means a 'fanny pack' - this will enable you to leave your hands free to carry all those extra bags and don't forget to carry some water and keep hydrated!

But my best time saving advise would be to have 'Personalised Wedding Business Cards' - if you are really on the ball create your own personalised wedding business cards with the date of your wedding and all your contact information on it - this way you won't need to repeatedly write out your information at every booth you stop at - especially if you want to win all those fabulous prizes!

This year Sheldon Kagan's 'Le Salon de la Mariee' will be celebrating 30 years at the Palais des Congres on the 30th and 31st January. I have been very fortunate in teaming up with Sheldon for his Salon de la Mariee Gazette Contest where I will be giving away my Wedding Day Management Program to one lucky couple - but that's not all you can win.... don't forget to check out the Montreal Gazette from the 22nd January to see what else you can win for your dream wedding. Good Luck!!
