Tips

Get the Most of Your Time at the McKinney Bridal Show

  • Plan on spending two to three hours with us and visit as many wedding exhibitors as possible. They will happily answer your questions, plus you will get a sense of their personality and style. It could take weeks to see the same number of vendors if you set up separate appointments for each.
  • Buy tickets in advance. Purchasing tickets ahead saves time and gets you into the show faster!
  • Spend some time with our website before the show. Learn about some of our exhibitors and note the ones you would like to talk to.
Mom and Bride
  • Bring your groom, your maid of honor or a bridesmaid and your mom! Let these folks share in the planning process. They can help talk with wedding professionals, sample cakes and check out portfolios.
  • Bring pre-printed labels. Nearly every vendor will ask for your name or invite you to enter drawings for special gifts and prizes. Make sure to include your name, email address, phone number, mailing address and wedding date.
  • Bring your checkbook and/or credit card. Lots of couples find things and service providers for their wedding at the McKinney Bridal Show. Make sure you’re prepared to pay the minimum deposit. Some exhibitors may even offer on-the-spot discounts and show day specials!
  • Make sure to catch the fashion show at 12 p.m. This show features great ideas for gowns and flowers and this is where you could win some amazing giveaways, including a honeymoon vacation!!
  • Bring a daily planner to schedule appointments or make note of which professionals you may want to spend more time with after the show.
