Big Day Wedding Expo Experience and Design
The Big Day Wedding Expo was a hit. I’m so proud of myself for taking the leap and investing in a wedding show. I won’t lie… it was a lot of work to pull everything together but it was totally worth it. Designing my booth and meeting all the wonderful brides-to-be made for such a wonderful experience.
Clean, crisp, and fun is how I would describe my booth. As a lot of my weddings have some outdoor portion to them, I made my booth feel like Spring. I did this by bringing in funky AstroTurf carpet. Let me tell you, finding AstroTurf in in the middle of winter is not easy. I tracked down the one Rona in Winnipeg that had some in stock and purchased their last few rolls. The green added an extra pop and warmth to my booth, especially on a chilly March weekend.
For detailing on the walls, I created a balloon installation consisting of white balloons of varying sizes at different heights. These balloons had the illusion of floating in mid-air. I achieved this affect by using clear fishing string instead of coloured ribbon. To help illuminate my booth I borrowed lights from my vendor friend Ally Papko Photography. Lighting is key for any wedding show. It helps brighten up your booth, making it feel warm and inviting.
My favorite part of my booth was my Ring Pops. Remember those ring-shaped candies from the 90’s? Well I totally brought them back for the show. Between the Ring Pops and balloons, I definitely drew on people’s inner child. Several of the brides-to-be were so excited to see Ring Pops because their fiancé proposed with one.
A wonderful friend of mine worked very hard to design my marketing material. She did an incredible job creating a fresh-looking postcard that outlined my services and contact information. Marketing material is key to having a successful wedding show. I hope brides-to-be enjoyed reading over my postcards and booklets when they got home.
I had a wonderful experience at the Big Day Wedding Expo. It was wonderful meeting all the brides-to-be and other vendors. I hope to do another show soon!
