Gerald and Catherine started planning their wedding in August 2022, and they were having a hard time figuring out which suppliers to choose for their big day. They heard about the Before I Do Bridal Fair that was going to be held on November 12 and 13, 2023.
The Before I Do Bridal Fair is an event thrice a year that showcases various wedding suppliers, from caterers to photographers to souvenirs. Gerald and Catherine were thrilled to learn that The Chandelier Events Place, one of the venues they were considering, would be an exhibitor at the fair. So, they immediately registered to attend the event and book The Chandelier Events Place onsite for their upcoming wedding on September 16, 2023.
On the day of the event, they were both excited and overwhelmed as they walked around the fairgrounds. There were so many vendors offering different products and services for weddings. But, they were determined to make the most out of the event and meet suppliers that would make their dream wedding a reality.
While they were there, they found out about the Onsite Booker Raffle. All they had to do was book their supplier at the fair, and they automatically became a participant in the raffle draw. Gerald and Catherine only booked one supplier, which was The Chandelier Events Place, but little did they know that it was all they needed to win a kitchen showcase.
Gerald received a text message informing him that he won the raffle prize. He couldn’t believe his luck! Winning a prize like this is a dream come true for couples who are starting their life together, building their home, and creating memories. But, it’s always tough to figure out which items to prioritize when it comes to setting up a new home. The biggest challenge is usually deciding which parts of the home to invest in first, and which to save for later.
Gerald and Catherine shared their wedding planning tips for couples who are just starting to plan their wedding:
- Budget wisely. Set a budget and if you can, do DIY projects to lessen your expenses. Shopee is a great resource for “tipid” hacks. You can also get budget-saving inspirations from Pinterest.
- Plan ahead. In their case, they started preparing for their wedding a year before the actual date. This gave them room to discuss everything and carefully secure their preferred suppliers, setup, ideas, and more.
- Take advantage of bridal fairs. Some suppliers offer package deals and freebies if you book during the bridal fair. Some also offer discounts for on-the-spot booking. Some bridal fairs, such as Before I Do, have raffle draws for those who book during the event, giving you a chance to win exciting prizes as well.
Gerald and Catherine’s experience at the Before I Do Bridal Fair was a success. They found the perfect venue for their wedding, and they even won a kitchen showcase. They advise future couples to attend bridal fairs like Before I Do, to be thorough and strategic when meeting suppliers, and to take advantage of the deals and raffle draws.
