2017 Be Wed Bridal Expo

My Simple Soiree is excited to present the 7th annual Bridal Expo at Manahan Orthopedic Capital Center. General Registration opens today!

We already have 4 of our Sponsorship spots filled and over 15 booths from our Priority Registration with 2016 Be Wed Vendors. If you are interested in the last Sponsor spot please contact us prior to mailing payment.  As this is has limited availability and we only have 1 Sponsor per vendor category.

Please read through the following information carefully as there have been some changes for 2017.

2017 Changes:

Pricing & Door Prizes  – We are increasing the early registration cost by $30 from last year, and the regular registration by $25. Where are we spending this extra money? First, we are no longer requiring you to provide door prizes ($30 savings!). We love to keep things simple and would rather you focus on making your booth the best it can be, instead of spending extra energy on a door prize. The extra money will be put directly into a grand prize, that will help to attract more brides and cut down on the talking during the expo. We feel as though this will make the day-of registration run more smoothly as well. Second, website links will be provided at no extra cost. We still pride ourselves in having extremely competitive pricing with other shows in the area!

Included in booth price:

  • Grace Rental Fees
  • Pipe & Drape
  • Event Advertising
  • Live Broadcasting: Day of the Event
  • Promotional Materials for the Event
  • Electricity
  • Lead list after the show
  • Website Link
  • Grand Prize

 

Payment – We are requiring vendors to pay in full when the contract is submitted. We want to make sure invoices are sent out promptly, and decided this was the best way to avoid any hiccups in payments, and again make day-of registration easier for all involved. That being said no booths will be held or ear marked.

Upper Level spaces for Independent Vendors: We have 6 table spaces for independent distributors to display their company/products.  We are offering this as an alternative to a booth space on the main floor. These will be first come, first served and may NOT be shared.  Electricity is not available at these tables, but are in a prime location for brides and guests as they enter the expo.

Bridal Game Show: We will be hosting a couples game show on stage. Not only will this drive attendance, but also, increase engagement of attendees at the expo.  If you would like to be apart of our Game Show planning and/or prizes, please let us know.

Vendor Features: We would like to feature vendors experts on stage.  Vendors would provide a 10 minute expertise session to promote and share their brand and business.  Vendor presentations will need to be approved by the Be Wed organizers.  We only have ONE featured vendor spot left!

We will be announcing other expo day-of details as the day approaches, but we do have some needs for the day of the expo for events on stage.

  • men’s suiting
  • floral arrangements:  stage florals
  • runway & stage decor
  • DJ/MC for the event

 

If you would like to partner with us for giveaways beyond the grand prize, please contact us! We are open to any ideas that will bring in additional brides. Some ideas are listed below, but please do not feel limited to these:

  • wedding dress
  • honeymoon
  • free vendor services

Please feel free to call, email, or message us with any questions. Don’t delay in registering. Last year we had over a dozen vendors on a wait list for booths.  We look forward to working with you on the 2017 Be Wed Bridal Expo!
