    I had everything planned before I went to a bridal extravaganza expo, but I went anyway just to see if I could pick up any extra ideas. It was fun to see all of the different styles and wedding ideas that were not really on my radar. Plus, I entered to win some things and actually won some dance lessons. I would sugest to make a “wedding” email that you can use to enter all the drawings with, then after the wedding you can delete the account, or just stop checking it… that way you don’t clutter your regular email with wedding spam.

    🙂

    I would go so that your cousin has someone to share it with. Strongly agree with PP- use a “special” email- I’m still occassionally getting emails a year and a half AFTER we got married.

    If you don’t go, no, you’re not missing anything awesome and amazing, but like I said-your cousin would probably really appreciate it, and you might pick up a couple of ideas.

    @MexiPino:  Ah, in that case, I think you can skip it.

    @MexiPino:  Eh, if you hate shopping then don’t bother! If you want more ideas then just surf Pinterest. I would go since I love window shopping, but if that’s not the case for you then just stay home.

    @MexiPino:  are there door prizes?? Many of the bridal expos in my area have huge door prizes, including honeymoons! That’s why I go!

    I personally think the Expos are fun and go just for the experience although my vendors are all pretty much locked down. If you go your cousin will appreciate it and you may come up with an idea or two that you hadn’t considered. I say go for it!

    I’m still getting “timeshare” type phone calls.  You won a free honeymoon, but first come listen to a 3 hour presentation on pots and pans type thing.  I really didn’t get anything out of it, but it was fun to look around I guess.

    @MexiPino:  It’s fun 🙂 I won some stuff including a gift certificate for a shellac manicure. Your cousin will probably appreciate it too!

    No, they’re overcrowded, you’ll get ton’s of junk mail and email afteward, and the only reason to go is to find vendors and possibly get discounts. Except usually they aren’t vendors you want to use!

    Ditto on creating a wedding email. I got a ton after going to one. Not to mention the phone calls saying I “won” $100 off a $4000 photography package.

    I went to a bridal expo and discovered a bakery that was VERY close to where I live. I have become a little addicted to their cake truffles and their key lime pastries! Totally worth the bridal expo trip! Plus it was just fun to walk around and see everything.

    It can’t hurt, if you WANT to go. I had a good time. It’s a nice way to get ideas. But no, you don’t NEED to go.
