Let us interview Singapore Celebrated Wedding Planner, Ms Ivy Chin, Executive Wedding Planner and Chief Lecturer in Brides School.
She will share with us the insider stories and tips for you to note before you sign up your wedding deal at the road show or wedding fair.
1st Point: The Reality
Wedding Fair & Roadshow usually have more cost incurred such as publicity, venue rental, additional manpower and many more. These are all additional operational cost involved rather than marketing in the bridal.
Yet, in a wedding show, Bridal and wedding vendors have to stay competitive against other company, they will reduce the price to attract brides to be & grooms to be to sign up.
With More Cost Involved Yet Lesser Profit Margin, the Bridal and Wedding Company will usually removed items from the standard package to reduce cost or charged them at a later date to earn back the amount.
These are items we terms as additional cost but if there are not explained properly to couple, it will be the dreaded hidden cost.

2nd Point: No transparency of Wedding Gown Collections
During a Roadshow or Wedding Show, you will not be able to see the real gowns or their wedding gown collections. You run the risk of signing up a package which is of limited gown collections or gowns that are not of your liking.
Horror Stories Sharing:
There are bridal whom take out 5 gowns and let you choose 1 from it. So if you want more gowns selection, you will have to top up and pay more. Imagine that if your package have 3 gowns in it, you only have 15 gowns to choose for both white wedding and evening gown. (Really limited selections)
3rd Point: Part Time Sales Force
During the wedding show, it is common practice to hired part time promoter or sales team.
These sales force are not regular employee of the company and if you signed up because you feel the service that they are providing is good. You may not be able to see the consultant again as they are hired specifically for wedding fair and roadshow only.
HAVE everything written down in black and white for all the promises they had offered in your invoices as to safeguard yourself.
As anything not written down, you run a high risk of paying for it although it is verbally agreed on.
