Some bridal shows are better than others because the quality depends on the companies. But whichever you choose, you’ll want to spend the time finding/comparing vendors so make sure you understand which vendors you’re looking for. Take with you, your wedding date and a friend to help you compare. :O) What other bridal shows are you going to this month?
