Has anyone attended bridal shows in Dallas-Fort Worth? Which one and what was your experience of it? There are some upcoming bridal expos and I’m trying to decide which one I should attend – https://www.eventbrite.com/d/tx–fort-worth/bridal-show/

I have not attended one in Dallas/Ft Worth, but I did attend a bridal expo in Chicago and honestly it was sort of worthless. The only thing I got out of it was a WHOLE LOT OF SPAM EMAIL. Even text message solicitations. I had already done a good chunk of my planning so perhaps I wasn’t the target audience or something. But honestly it was a waste of time, imo.

I went to the Great Bridal Expo in Dallas and had the worst experience! I probably stayed for 10 max minutes before realizing it was a waste of time. It was so poorly organized and the people working there were aweful!! There was nothing there that I couldn’t find online. So many people trying to get you to give them your information so that they can harass you about gifts and prizes that you “won.” Example: I won a free boudoir photo session with the purchase of a wedding package or a free honeymoon if I just come in for some information session. I have tons of spam emails and random calls everyday. I wish someone had warned me.

I attended one – not sure which. It was a lot of high end vendors so I really didn’t find any use in it. Also got spammed with calls and emails because I some how won EVERY SINGLE DRAWING.
However, there was free cake.

I attended one in Houston. I second all the above… all the vendors are high end and result in spam. But…. it was still a fun experience. Just make a new email account just for the event… and get a digital phone number that can be forwarded to your real phone… or turned off when you’re done. Eat the free food and cake, get some ideas and if you see a vendor you love, talk prices. Some offered deals for the expo… so it may be a way of getting reduced price for service and vendor you want.

Thanks everyone! I had two epxos in mind. One is the mid-cities bridal show in Hurst, TX and the other is bridal expo 2019 in Desoto, TX. Couldn’t find reviews online for either.
