I’ve met lots of brides terrified by the idea of a wedding fair and others totally excited. One type doesn’t understand the other :). The first one hates the fact that it will be crowded, that she’ll have to wait to much to try on a dress, that she’s not going to see too much and it will be a waist of her time. The other one is in love with the idea that she’ll have the opportunity to try on dozens of dresses and no one will stand in her way… sometimes literally “in her way”. 🙂
In my opinion, it’s totally worth going, but with an open minded and a right attitude. What I mean is that before you go on trying dresses, do some research and discover what kind of silhouettes might work with your body. Here and here are two articles that should help you with this.
After you’ve figure out what kind of silhouettes you like, it will be a lot easier to search for those ones between the thousands of dresses you will see there.Your own style and your own preferences are very important, but you might discover other dresses that make you look spectacular.
So, a wedding fair is the perfect opportunity to try different styles if you have no idea what might work with your body, to try the dresses you’ve set your heart on, or just to make an idea of what’s on the market. You don’t have to try all the dresses because you’ll get confused. Not every wedding dress brand in your country will be there, but the experience is quite nice if you make it nice.
What would I do
Take a tour of the place, search the dresses that you might like, write down the ones you’re really interested in, take a moment to think about them and then go and try on the ones that really “spoke” to you.
And while you do that keep in mind that there are lots of brides waiting to try their perfect dress, so don’t spend more than 5 minutes with a dress, unless you want to purchase it and you need more time to feel if it’s the one.
A wedding fair is not all about wedding dresses, but also about your man, bridal accessories, wedding invitations, flower arrangements, wedding agencies/planners, photo & video services etc. It’s about the wedding in general, so you’ll find lots of ideas, all in one place. The cool thing about it is that some vendors will offer discounts, special offers and you might also win a prize.

This weekend,in Bucharest, at Romexpo, will take place another important wedding fair, “The Bride’s Guide Fair” (Targul Ghidul Miresei), probably the last wedding event of this summer. I’m sure there will be plenty of things to discover, so that’s the place to be this weekend if you’re getting married soon. And even if you won’t find there what you’re looking for, at least you’ll leave with some fresh ideas, as it is a great source of inspiration for your wedding.
