$9 for as much cake as you can eat.  Some other good food samples.  Never use your real contact info and don’t sign up for the drawings.  Have fun!

@amethystJCM:  I found musicians and hired them. Other then that, no one else.

It’s fun to attend though 🙂

Don’t go if you’re on a lower budget. At the one I went to, I found that they were all higher budget vendors, and they pressure you to break your budget. I also hate sales pitches.

We went specifically looking for photographers and we found it helpful. Most websites we’d visited do not list their prices online. So being able to talk to them in person, we were able to ask and get them to give us a ballpark estimate. Some had actualy packages with prices, but didn’t list them on websites either. This helped us narrow it down and we ended up choosing someone we met there. 

Also, by booking them from the show, we got a free engagement shoot added.
