OneWed’s Local Flavor: Should the Groom Go to Bridal Shows?
It’s bridal show season out there. I’m sure the one big question on your mind is, “How do I get out of going?” The answer is, maybe you don’t want to get out of it. Despite the name “bridal show” these events aren’t necessarily just for brides. Grooms can survive just fine. Depending on the show, it can be a great way to get a jump-start on your wedding planning, let you see a bunch of vendors all at once, and possibly win some great prizes or discounts. Going with your fiancée will give you extra chances to win raffle prizes, and ensure that you have a chance to see all the possible vendors. Plus, there’s almost always free cake and going gets you a free pass to spend the next weekend watching football.
*Editor’s note – GroomsAdvice sets up a groom’s corner at every bridal show we attend. We mix a little wedding talk with Nintendo Wii, ping pong and man-food. Doesn’t sound that bad, eh?
