Event: Bridal Fair

Brides & Beyond Bridal Fair 2019

We’re ecstatic that we were able to join the Brides and Beyond Bridal Fair last July 27-28, 2019 at The Fifth, Rockwell. This bridal fair marks our 3rd year of joining and not only were we able to catch up with fellow suppliers but we were able to meet new clients as well!

Although the fair is over, do inquire with us as we have extended the discounts we have offered with this Bridal Fair. Here’s a link to the inquiry form if you still need an event planner for your wedding or other life events https://form.jotform.me/beyondlogistics/Clientformext.

Our team would also like to share a few tips when visiting bridal fairs. We do understand it is quite overwhelming when booking suppliers with promos good only for the weekend, massive amounts of brochures and cards and so many people trying to talk to you at once.

Bridal fair tips:

Engaged, No dateEngaged, With Date,
Booked CHURCH & RECEPTION ALREADY
Set an overall budget
What would you like to splurge on
Make a list of suppliers that you would like to focus on and book within a week – month of the bridal fair.
Planners, photographers, videographers, band (with preferred singer) are usually booked in
advance.
Our team only handles 1 event per day
As much as possible, have a
month in mind
-Ber months get booked fast because the
holiday season makes a lot of people book
vacations back to manila
Dates that are booked in advance apart from
-BER months are the lucky dates in the
Chinese calendar.
If you have preferred suppliers, inquire rates
and availability ASAP with the event month in mind.
List your non negotiable suppliers e.g. must
book photog/ video
Have a reasonable budget for the supplier.
Ex. Extravagant or lush designs would equate a bigger budget alloted for the stylist
Ask if rates will change if you plan to get married after 2 years after you have booked the supplier
Some suppliers need to increase rates due to
TRAIN law or changes in taxes / labor fees
Check food tasting schedules with caterers
If thinking of an out of town prenup shoot – get the photo/video team’s schedule in advance
Check if designers will be having a sale
especially if you prefer to have a RTW bridal
gown
Preferred Venue/s
Churches / reception venues get booked fast
because of the holidays or lucky dates.
E.g. Tagaytay Churches are usually fully booked from December to May
Here’s a link of the suppliers that are usually booked for a wedding / other events.
