Arizona Bridal Show – Save the Date – Sunday, June 9, 2013 at Phoenix Convention Center in the SOUTH building from 9am – 3pm.  Tickets are $12 at the door.  ArizonaBridalShow.com for tickets online.

Bridal shows are a great planning tool when you are a busy bride, groom, or parent planning an upcoming wedding.  In one day and in one place you are able to talk directly with many different exhibitors, see/hear/taste/smell/touch samples of their work, and get an idea of costs involved in hiring their products and services.  Many bridal show exhibitors have show “discounts” or “specials” available for a limited time.

Bridal shows may be overwhelming, crowded, and confusing.  Would highly recommend you spend time planning ahead to get the most out of your bridal show experience.

After being a wedding planner for 25 years (probably older than you, right), these wedding planning tips are priceless to make your “Bridal Show Experience” the most productive!

1).  Visit the bridal show web site for discount coupons on admission.

2).  Mark your calendar with the day(s), start time, end time, and the location with the address and parking details.

3).  Come early, since the you will get more accomplished.

4).  Attend the fashion show, and check the start time.

5).  Bring the people involved in making major decisions for your wedding.

6).  Bring your phone and take photos and video to capture what you like.

7).  Bring address labels or an address stamp with your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and wedding date to register for prizes.  This will save you time and prevent writer’s cramp.  Remember to register at locations you are interested in, otherwise your in box and mail box will be overflowing!

8).  Bring a large bag (or bag with wheels) so you may comfortably carry all of the hand-outs and samples you receive from the exhibitors.

9).  Wear comfortable shoes since you will be walking and standing on your feet for hours.

10).  Bring your calendar so you may book appointments.

11).  Bring cash and your check book to take advantage of show discounts on site.

12).  Bring your color swatches if you still need a designer, florist, and bakery.

13).  Make a list of priorities of products and services you need the most.

14).  Some vendors may be able to book 1 or 2 weddings a day which will make them book more quickly.  Photographers, DJs, wedding planners, florists, and videographers may be examples of this vendor type.  Other vendors may be able to book multiple weddings on the same day.  Keep this in mind when organizing your priorities.

15).  Stay until the end of the show, you may be able to have props which are leftover from the exhibitors.

After lighting the event by bkthedj.com

After lighting the event by bkthedj.com

Lighting at your wedding will take your vision from standard to OMG!

Work with your wedding planner (an experienced planner with lighting background), and their lighting designer to illuminate your centerpieces, cake, and the planner/designer will suggest other ways to set the mood of the room, then change it periodically throughout the evening as you finish dinner, and move into dancing, and your after hours party.

Organize a site inspection with your wedding planner, lighting designer, and catering/sales manager to determine viable options with the space you have to work with. If there is no electric in the ceiling, (just ran into this at a newly built upscale ballroom at a hotel…really!!!), you won’t be able to drop chandeliers from the ceiling without having cords running up the sides of the wall to run power to them. Once I knew there was no power in the ceiling, the design of the wedding changed completely! Thank God for the rigger who let me know, since the catering sales manager at the hotel did not know this, and had been at this property for years. Yikes!

See if the site has dimmers for their overhead lights, and if there are any florescent lighting, make sure they are turned off! Find out if there are any service doors which must be kept open, which would flood the space with light and ruin the effect.

If you’re planning a wedding at home or in a tent, discuss how much electricity your lighting designer is going to need. Your band or DJ will probably have to tap into your home’s power for their speakers, and you don’t want to risk blowing a fuse. If your lighting expert is concerned that there won’t be enough power to go around, they may consider bringing a generator, which should be positioned strategically out of range of hearing the buzz/hum.

Each venue will have different rules and regulations, so make sure you check with them on what you may or may not do for lighting. Get a quote before moving forward to see your “wish list” with pricing breakdowns, then adjust as your budget mandates, to get the look you want.

Lighting 101
Pin spot – A focused beam of light which shines directly onto an object, like your centerpiece or wedding cake, as a highlight effect.

Color wash – Different types of light fixtures create a “wash,” which is basically a blanket of colored light covering an entire area.

Gobos – Round cut outs or “stencils” are put over a light to project a design or pattern on a dance floor, wall, or other focal point. Popular gobo designs are monograms, dates, or another motif from your gown, cake or wedding invitation. The complexity of the design will affect the gobo’s cost. Metal gobos (less expensive) and glass gobos (withstanding higher heat) are two different styles and qualities.

LED – LED lights are popular for weddings since they use less electricity (and don’t get as hot) than regular, incandescent light bulbs. This may be wireless, so they’re even that much more discreet. LEDs are great for color changes and vibrant colors. They’re also common in strands and good for accent lighting.
