    I love bridal shows!  Unfortunately I’ve only been to two or three because my scheduled changed and I work weekends during the hours that they’re held ๐Ÿ™  If I wasn’t working I would definitely be at every one!  I loveeee the fashion shows ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lol, I enjoy the question marks on the poll. Reminds me of “I’m Ron Burgundy?”

    I had a good time at my first (and so far only) bridal show… even if I didn’t, cake samples make everything better ๐Ÿ™‚ There aren’t too many in this area for some reason.

    My issue is with the hundreds of emails and dozen phone calls I’ve received since. Lesson learned- don’t give out your phone number or email address even when “prizes” are involved. The friend I went with (also a soon-to-be Mrs.) has the same problem.

    One was enough for me. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either.

    I also won a big prize going to my first bridal show… $500.00 off the price of my dress! I decided to go to another one last week thinking I might still be lucky. I was right! I won free alterations. yay! Bridal shows are so much fun. I found them to be a great bonding experience with family and friends. I took a couple of good friends and my mother and sister to the first one, and my FSILs and FMIL to the second one. both experiences were great!

    I loved all the samples & ideas that I got at the bridal shows I’ve been to.. I’ve been to two so far, after the first one I learned not to give my # out at all unless I was very interested. Its a little over whelming because there are so many people, and in all reality I felt like I wasted my $ going to one of them because there really weren’t any vendors that I could use. It mainly included the ceremony/reception venues and photography.

    I had a ton of fun with the shows back with I was early in planning. Now that I have most of my vendors, while I would still enjoy the shows, I don’t feel like I get as much out of them.

    I went to one to get some ideas in LA (but all the vendors I can use are in CO).. I didn’t reall like it.. the crowd and the vendors all telling you to sign up for this and that.. then the influx of junk mail :-/

    I loathe them, don’t find any enjoyment in them at all (of course, I never won anything either).  For me, it’s too many brides and alot of them thinking they’re “top bride.”  I found a lot of them to be rude and I wasn’t able to really ask the questions I wanted to ask because I felt rushed and hurried.

    I went to one. It drove me crazy… Way too many people crammed into a small place. My fiance was trying to pull me in one direction, I wanted to look in another. (My fiance likes to jump all over the place, I liked to go down each row checking out all the vendors). It was awful, I would try to talk to one vendor over the noisy crowd, and FI would be pulling my arm telling me to check this or that out. I was like, I am trying to have a conversation! I ended up walking off with my mom, he with his mom, and had a better time. We met a few minutes after we split, and he apologized and walked down each row with me.
