Why Go To A Wedding Fayre?
Wedding fayres are the perfect place to get inspiration and ideas, speak to different providers, get advice and start booking your wedding day services - but most importantly, it’s a chance to start having fun and enjoying the journey.
Wedding fayres are a fun day out, especially if you bring along your fiance, bridal party, family and friends! There are many freebies, drinks, live catwalk shows, live music, makeovers as well as hair and makeup demos. Most importantly, wedding fayres are the only place where you can find all your perfect wedding suppliers under one roof, which means you can ask all the questions you need, get expert advice and book your favourite suppliers all on the same day - with your loved ones with you to help you decide!
Planning your wedding is such a personal and emotional experience, so it’s vitally important to be able to make an emotional connection with your supplier. After all, they are going to play a big part in your special day, so you want to make sure you connect! Wedding fayres allow you to make that personal connection with the person who will be supplying the services for your wedding - making you feel much more confident and secure!
Plus, many vendors offer samples, testers, freebies and even discounts on the day, which can help save you tons of money!
How Can You Get The Most Out of Your Wedding Fayre?
Do your homework
It’s always good to speak with your significant other and talk about what you will be looking for. Take a look online and get some inspiration too - even if it’s only to decide what you don’t want. A bit of preparation will really help. Bring your diary, your wedding planner and tick off your do to list.
Don’t go it alone
Bring your fiance, friends or family with you. These are the people who know you best so can offer you a second opinion, and sometimes it’s important to have a little bit of reassurance from someone you trust when making decisions about your big day. Child are also very welcome!
Be ready to book
Lots of our exhibitors offer you special offers on the day if you pay a deposit, so be ready to book to secure your date, supplier and get some special offers and amazing discounts!
Sign in and sign up!
Sign in when you arrive and be sure to sign up to any exhibitors mailing lists that may catch your eye! They can send you details of their packages and any new deals and products they have! By signing up you will be the first to receive these offers and new products! Why not be organised and set up a new personal email address just for your wedding so you have all your exhibitor offers in one place!
Keep it personal
Be yourself and get to know providers on a personal level. This is the perfect opportunity to build a connection with your potential supplier and it’s really important to feel connected to the suppliers creating your wedding day! Don't be shy and chat with as many exhibitors as you can, get to know them and what they have to offer you.
Follow your gut feeling
This is your big day, and your wedding is a pretty emotional event, so make sure you follow your gut. If you have a good connection with a supplier and feel good with them, then it’s the basis of a perfect wedding supplier relationship! It’s important to feel good about the wedding team around you, so make sure you’re listening to your instincts on the day!
Pick up business cards
If you don’t book something on the day, make sure to take a business card (and a flyer/brochure if the exhibitor has one) so you can keep in touch with the contacts you made on the day and follow up later.
Strike a pose
Well maybe not you, although it’s not prohibited! But do make sure to watch the catwalk shows - we have the very latest in trends and fashion so be sure not to miss out!

Why Take Our Word For It?
Read what happy brides have had to say about our Red Event Wedding Fayres!
”To be honest, it was really useful in that I went, seen what I liked/disliked, got ideas and quotes, and then I’m going to sit down, go through everything and start booking with my favourites!! I’ve been to two other wedding fayres so far, but this one was the best because the atmosphere was really nice and everyone was so friendly!! (I got some freebies too which is also nice!!) :)”
”The wedding fair was fun for us as we’ve just started planning, the fashion shows were the best part for me!”
”This is the second Red Event wedding fair I’ve been to and I found the first one quite helpful in the beginning getting ideas together, finding out what I did, didn't like. Now I have a plan I came back and got my transport, makeup and stationary all sorted. They all gave us discounts too, which defo helps when you’re planning a wedding!”
“It really gave us a chance to get ideas of what different suppliers offer, and it was good to have a chat with lots of different people without feeling obliged to take things any further. Although we did get our venue booked and got 30% discount!”
”We’ve just got £300 off our videographer as we booked him there and then - and the catwalk was fab! x”
