Is it common for the FI to attend bridal fairs and bridal shows? I signed up for my first one and it’s not til May.. but I’m not sure if it’s acceptable to bring Mr. H along? I don’t think he’d mind going.. unless we got there and he was literally the only man in attendance lol

My FI came along with me! I don’t think it’s unusual at all!

It’s totally fine! I brought mine along to one, and there was even a “man cave” set up for the fiances to hang out in if they got tired of the ultra-girly everything else. It was great to have him along so that he could get an idea of everything that went into wedding planning.

We only attended one bridal show, and I was actually with a vendor. My fiance came with me to look around AND helped with our booth almost the entier time. 🙂 Love him.

There was a big bridal expo in town and I asked FI if he wanted to go with me. I was very pleasantly surprised that he wanted to go, but hey it’s his wedding too and it was nice that he was taking an interest. We had a very enjoyable afternoon looking for venues and tasting food samples hehe. It was a very useful trip. I had no idea how much of an industry this was until we went to the expo! There were quite a lot of guys there, except in the gown sales area 😉

@jaim1104: I went to one by myself a few weekends back and I couldn’t even enter this huge drawing because both Bride and groom needed to be in attendence!
Super sucks because it turned out to be a terrible turn-out – there were about 10 couples and the reward was about 10 grand and free photog. lol – believe me I was kicking myself for not making him go.
