    I went to the one in Santa Cruz and thought it was really lame so I didn’t go to any others.

    Hi,

    I attended the Modern Bridal show @ the Ritz Carlton in the city. Since I’m having my dress custom made, I didn’t attend the dress show. I mainly visited location vendors. The set up of the show was upscale, the samples were good, and the champagne was bubbly. The show was typical of most bridal shows I’ve been to. I will say I got in free with a comp ticket. I understand this show charged $20. I won’t pay to go to these shows. I ALWAYS find a way to get a free or hugely discounted price ticket. Anyway, Modern puts on nicer, well organized shows/expos. The one they have at the SF Concourse is always the biggest. Last year I attended one at the Four Seasons on Market St. That was nice also. Sometimes the vendors will give you a discounted rate or some special if you book that day. My advice is wear comfortable shoes and bring a tote bag for the flyers and pamphlets that you will be picking up. You will most likely get a bag at the door (plastic with advertising on it) but I prefer to bring my own. I only stopped at vendors I really considered using and only took business card. Less waste. Bring a trusted friend, sister, etc. Bring a calculator too. If you have a camera or camera phone, use it. If you see a display you like, snap a photo or two because you really wont remember that special set up you saw at the beginning of the show after you’ve seen 10 more!  Ask questions and more questions. Have a list of things you want to discuss with these vendors. It’s a great opportunity to get as much information as you can with a live person. Have fun. It’s just a show. I’ve seen women (mainly) get so engrossed and over zealous at these things its ridiculous.
