Get the Most of Your Time at the McKinney Bridal Show
- Plan on spending two to three hours with us and visit as many wedding exhibitors as possible. They will happily answer your questions, plus you will get a sense of their personality and style. It could take weeks to see the same number of vendors if you set up separate appointments for each.
- Buy tickets in advance. Purchasing tickets ahead saves time and gets you into the show faster - plus, you will receive TWO raffle tickets instead of one, which gives you a better chance of winning a giveaway!
- Spend some time with our website before the show. Learn about some of our exhibitors and note the ones you would like to talk to.
- Bring your groom, your maid of honor or a bridesmaid and your mom! Let these folks share in the planning process. They can help talk with wedding professionals, sample cakes and check out portfolios.
- Bring pre-printed labels. Nearly every vendor will ask for your name or invite you to enter drawings for special gifts and prizes. Make sure to include your name, email address, phone number, mailing address and wedding date.
