FAQs about Wedding Fairs and Events

When you first begin planning your wedding, it can be very useful to attend a wedding fair for a number of reasons. Attending a wedding fair (or a similar event) is a great starting point to generate ideas, meet wedding suppliers and tour wedding venues without the pressure of booking right away.

Generally the wedding couple will attend a wedding fair together, but in reality there is no rule as to who should or should not go with you to a wedding fair. For example, many brides like to bring their maid of honour or the mother of the bride to a wedding fair to generate ideas and help everyone get excited about planning the big day.

Before you attend a wedding fair (or fayre), you should know some basic information about your wedding including how much you'd like to spend on the wedding, where you plan to get married (or information about your chosen wedding venue) and how many wedding guests you'll likely have. This is to ensure you can answer key questions that the attending wedding suppliers will ask. This is especially important if you discover a wedding business you really like at the event, as you can have a serious conversation about booking them for your big day.

Yes, grooms do attend wedding fairs. It is a myth that only brides attend these events! Anyone can attend a wedding fair and if you are part of the marrying couple, then you should definitely consider attending a wedding fair or similar event with your partner.

A wedding fair will generally be open for 3 to 4 hours. We recommend ensuring you have allowed 2 hours to attend as you'll want to allow time to walk around the wedding venue, have good conversations with wedding suppliers and enjoy the atmosphere of the event without being rushed.

There are a number of wedding related events you can attend. Wedding fairs (or fayres) are most common as they are generally local events hosted at wedding venues and happen very frequently. Other events include national wedding shows and regional wedding showcases which are bigger showcases that often feature wedding fashion shows, venue open days specifically designed for couples who want to see a wedding venue, as well as bridal trunk shows where a specific wedding dress designer is showcased at a boutiques.

A wedding fair is an event designed for wedding suppliers to showcase their work and meet wedding couples who are getting married at the host venue, considering the host venue for a wedding or tying the knot elsewhere in the local area. A wedding venue open day (or venue showcase) is focused on showing the wedding venue to prospective couples. While suppliers may be represented at these events, it is usually a display of their work or their leaflets being included in a gift bag rather than their attendance at the event.
