Love ’em or hate ’em? What makes a good one? What can’t you stand about them?
I’m going to have my very first booth at a Wedding Show in January, and I’d appreciate any advice you can give me. (aka: how not to drive people crazy). So far I just have my smile, busines cards, brochures, and free-no-strings-attached gift.

Big turn-offs: vendors who beat around the bush about pricing. "It depends, blah blah blah." Have a range prepared. And vendors who demand personal info even if I don’t want to give it. Free gifts are a plus. What’s your business?

rzblna, I’m offering day-of coordination for Washington State.
Good point! I like to do a custom quote, but I’ve prepared a range….that’s been the hardest part of my business plan. I want to make myself available to the couples who need me, but on the other hand, it’s a lot of hard work (12-13 hours on the wedding day) and "you charge what you’re worth". I remember one thing that I hated was being hounded after the show by what felt like used car salesmen, so I’m definitely avoiding that.
