Hey, I’m Liz!
The most important part of what I do is telling your love story on your special day. I don’t just show up to your ceremony. I want to know the you beyond the camera so the photos I deliver are keepsakes that’ll be with you for decades. Your love story is the best inspiration for photos that last for decades.
Tips and Tricks
I am so excited to be talking about my experience at last Sunday’s 2017 Clarksville Brides Wedding Fair! This is the first wedding fair I’ve done ever and I feel like it was a huge success! There is so much prep that goes into an event this important for your marketing and business so I wanted to share my experience and give a few insights for anyone else thinking about doing a bridal fair.
I first want to say what an incredible experience it was! I was so nervous and stressed out getting everything prepared and before brides arrived but as soon as I started talking to excited brides I was in the zone and no longer nervous. Any of my introverts know how I feel?
What do you think?
There are a ton of great articles online about preparing for a bridal show and I’d definitely recommend reading them. That’s how I got started and I just wanted to add to the wealth of knowledge and give some feedback about my experience.
While very stressful, I am very happy with how it turned out and with the brides that I talked to. Overall, my assistant and I talked to 83 brides in 4 hours. 83! That’s a lot of brides. Oh! And one more tip….bring an assistant with you to help. There are a lot of brides as you can see above and you’ll need someone to help you talk to them all. You can’t clone yourself, although I wish I could at times. Having a helping hand definitely made the day a lot easier and allowed me to have genuine conversations with the brides instead of rushed sales pitches.
I’m still working the numbers to see how beneficial the fair was for my business but just 4 days later, I’m feeling really positive about the experience. Have you done a bridal fair before? If so what do you wish you would have known beforehand? Was it beneficial to you?
A huge thank you to my amazing assistant, Kristin. You’re amazing! A thank you to Mike and his wife, the new owners of Clarksville Brides for putting on a great show! And thank you to the 83 brides and their bridal party for chatting with me about your big day! Check out more photos from the fair below!
