How to Find Great Jewelry at a Bridal Show
Tips for Finding Incredible Jewelry at Canada’s Bridal Show
Canada’s Bridal Show is the most renowned Bridal Show. Founded in 1984, it’s a great place to check out hundreds of vendors and find the perfect items and services for your wedding. Attending a bridal show is a great way to prepare for your wedding and narrow down the vendors you’ll want to work with.
Looking for wedding bands and other bridal jewelry at the show? Here are some tips to help you find the right wedding rings and more at the show.
Talk to Jewelers
A big advantage to attending a Bridal Show is talking with jewelers and other vendors face-to-face. You can learn a lot from talking to a jeweler. When you do speak with them, tell them the type of jewelry you’re looking for and ask them for advice. A good jeweler won’t just want to push a sale, they will actually want to help. Speaking directly to jewelers is a good way to find those who are genuinely interested in helping you find the perfect wedding rings and jewelry.
Go for Classics
Whether you’re buying wedding bands, bracelets, necklaces, pendants or any other type of wedding jewelry, remember that this isn’t jewelry isn’t only worn once. This includes wedding jewelry. Of course, you probably won’t be wearing all of your wedding jewelry on a daily basis, but you likely will want to wear some of it later on, maybe at special occasions.
Of course, your wedding ring will be with you every day for the rest of your life. That’s why you’ll want to choose a timeless design that will still look great today as well as 30 or 40 years from now. One of the jewelers at Canada’s Bridal Show can definitely help you pick a wedding band that will manage to look modern and yet classic.
Also, don’t forget that the photos of your wedding day will also be with you for the rest of your life. That’s another great reason why it’s a good idea to not choose jewelry that is too trendy. Go for timeless instead.
Remember your Budget
There are going to be a lot of different vendors at Canada’s Bridal Show. That makes browsing convenient, but it can also be easy to go overboard and throw your budget out the window. Of course, that’s probably not a good idea. Sticking to a budget is important.
You’ll want to set your budget before the show, so you’ll know where to focus your attention. This can help you when it comes to checking out vendors, products and services. After all, you don’t want to spend a bunch of your time trying on wedding bands that are considerably out of your price range.
Keep Track of Vendors
There will be so much going on at Canada’s Bridal Show that things can sometimes blur together. This makes it easy to get vendors confused. You don’t want to forget the name of a really great jeweler who sold the perfect wedding bands, right? That’s why you should write down names and phone numbers and take pictures as necessary so that you don’t forget details. Your phone could be your best friend when it comes to organization at the show.
Something Old, Something New
Your jewelry doesn’t all have to match completely. Don’t be afraid to choose pieces from different collections or even different jewelers. Think about the overall look that you’re going for and the “theme” of your wedding. If your wedding jewelry fits into that theme and looks good together, it doesn’t have to match completely. In fact, having some variety can make things look more interesting.
This includes mixing styles, but it also includes wearing older jewelry that may have a special meaning. After all, you’ll want to have your “something old” and “something borrowed,” right?
Every single piece of jewelry that you wear at your wedding doesn’t have to be new. Feel free to wear a few pieces that have special sentimental or emotional value along with your newer purchases. These vintage pieces can really give you a unique look.
You’ll want to take brief notes about the vendors that you visit and speak with at the show. This will help you remember everything that you did and keep all of the facts straight. If you have a friend or family member going with you to the show, they can be in charge of making notes!
