Congratulations on your engagement! As you begin planning, there are many things to remember and consider – but take a deep breath. With a little thought and preparation, planning for your wedding day can be an exciting and fun experience!
Bridal shows and expos are a great way to acquaint yourself with the local vendors, available venues and hot new trends – not to mention, they offer a wealth of inspiration! Gainan’s Flowers is proud to be a part of quite a few coming up!
We are a proud sponsor of the “With This Ring” Wedding Fair 2016 happening Sunday, January 10 at the Holiday Inn Grand Montana Convention Center. We will also be at the Radio Billings 2016 Wedding Preview, Sunday, January 31st. The event will be from noon until 5pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Style show begins at 3:00pm. Then we will be at The Billings Depot Bridal Fair, Sunday, March 6th from 11-3pm.
If you are planning to join us, here are some great tips, from the experts themselves.
- Those who get there earliest generally get the best gifts, prizes and swag. Pre-registering online will help you to make it from parking lot to show floor in record time.
- Bring pre-printed labels with your name, address, phone number and email address. Most vendors will offer giveaways and prizes, and labels will save you from writing this information over and over.
- Bring your friends, but not all of them! It’s awesome to have people to bounce ideas off of, but having input from too many sources can be confusing. Take those whose style you trust, and solicit their thoughts.
- Take lots of photos of what you love, but make sure that you are also recording which booth the photo is from, so that you can easily reach out to the appropriate vendor if need be.
- Bring your calendar, as appointments fill up quickly. If you find what you love, book it before it is gone!
- Have fun – this day is truly special, and you should enjoy it.
As Gainan’s Flowers is Billings’ premiere bridal flower source, our wedding designs will be showcased throughout the event. Be sure to attend the Fashion Show – Gainan’s is proud to provide the bridal bouquets that the models are carrying, as well as the floral arrangements that decorate the stage.
The Wedding Fair is January 10, 2016 at 12 noon at the Holiday Inn Grand Montana Convention Center. Fashion Show begins at 3:30 pm. We’ll see you there!
