Wedding Journal Show Checklist
The Wedding Journal Show is coming to the Kings Hall in Belfast from Friday the 23rd to Sunday the 25th of January. Jules is looking forward to exhibiting at the fair at stand E35.
The fair will be buzzing with activity and excitement, the chance to see fashion shows, enter competitions, get freebies and be inspired by over 250 exhibitors. However, with so much to see and around 10,000 visitors over the weekend it can get pretty overwhelming. The show is a great opportunity to meet a wide range of local suppliers. That’s why Jules has put together a checklist to help you make the most of your day.
What to plan in advance
Book your tickets online in advance. If you pay at the door tickets are £11 per adult, if you plan ahead and book them online you can get the discounted rate of £9pp or if you have a larger group, you can get a group of 5 ticket which will cost just £8pp. Don’t worry, booking online won’t restrict you to a specific day if you’re not sure what your plans are for the weekend, as its valid for one day of your choice.
Plan to see a catwalk show. Pick which show from below you’d like to see and leave enough time to get seats as they will fill up fast.
Fri: 4 pm & 6 pm
Sat: 1 pm, 3 pm & 5 pm
Sun: 1 pm, 3 pm & 5 pm
Research the suppliers exhibiting, get a feel for their price range to avoid spending time on those you can’t afford. Come knowing which parts of wedding are a priority. If you’ve only specific things left on your list make sure you see all the relevant stands and find out what they have to offer. It’s a good idea to bring your budget with you to avoid overspending.
Decide who’s best to attend the show with you. Do you need your fiancé with you to make a decision or is your mum more involved? Bring those who will enjoy it and help you make decisions rather than distract.
What to bring
A list of questions to ask, for example if you come looking for a wedding photographer write a list of questions you need to know in order to book their services.
At the Show
If an offer is for “one day only” don’t panic buy, only make the purchase if you would have bought it regardless of the offer to avoid post purchase regret. Don’t let a supplier make you feel pressured.
After the show
We hope you have a great time planning your wedding at the show and we hope to see you there. Remember Jules will be at stand E35. We’ll be launching our new wedding stationery range, you can see samples, chat with Jules, book a consultation and enter our spa competition.
