FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY AREN'T ALL OF YOUR VENUES 'WEDDINGY'
We hold our shows in a variety of locations but in each county, we utilise a community building (usually a school) as they're fabulously large spaces to accommodate our enormous shows and also, it allows us to do a bit of good in each county we visit - a little extra revenue for our schools can't be a bad thing, those eager young minds can always benefit from more resources to improve their learning experience.
DO I NEED INSURANCE TO EXHIBIT WITH THE WEDDING SCENE?
In a word, yes. As a minimum, you will need Public Liability insurance to exhibit with us.
If your business is not one that usually deals with the public, other than at a wedding fair, there are very reasonably priced policies available as trade show exhibitors. Markel Direct is excellent in this regard.
BESIDES EXHIBITING, HOW ELSE CAN I GET INVOLVED?
Our wedding shows are action-packed, so if you're exhibting with us, there's always another way to get involved and get some extra exposure for your business. Have you thought about contributing to;
The Wedding Decor Inspiration Area
The Fashion Show
The Wedding Information Station
Then get in touch!
ARE THERE EXTRA PERKS TO EXHIBITING WITH THE WEDDING SCENE?
There sure are! We offer so much more than most wedding fair companies;
PRE-SHOW PROMOTION - heartfelt, human & high achieving social media promotion leading up to the show.
MORE EXPOSURE - every one of our shows provides couples with a Show Guide. You can even be on the front cover.
AFTER SHOW PROMOTION - yep, that's a thing too! Your details get added to our website once the show has passed.
DO I NEED TO USE A TABLE WHEN EXHIBITING?
Absolutely not. Your stand is your space to market your business in the way you feel best.
Creating a visually interesting stand is key to building your bookings as it entices people to you. Then you can wow them with your sales pitch!
If you'd like more hints to getting the most from your space, have a look at our 'How To Get The Most From Exhibiting' Guide
DO I NEED TO PAY EXTRA FOR ELECTRICITY?
Nope, we just ask that you let us know on your booking form if you do need it.
We will craft the floorplan based on everyone's requirements so if there's something you need, please let us know in good time and we'll make sure you're in the right spot for your needs.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE STAND FEE?
Where to start! OK, you get;
Your stand space
A trestle table to suit the selected size
Somewhere to park your bottom
Electric if you need it

We will include up to 125 leaflets or other marketing literature/items in the goody bags as standard

HOW DO THE DEPOSITS WORK?
To book your place at one of our shows, regardless of the stand price, we take a £50 deposit.
We invoice you for the deposit of each of your chosen wedding shows upon receipt of your booking form, if we have availability for your category.
As the show draws nearer, we will invoice you for the remaining balance. The invoice will be issued 8 weeks before the show, with the balance to be paid by 6 weeks before the show, at the very latest.
HOW DO I GET A DISCOUNT?
We all love a little discount - so how does 15% sound?
If you book 3 or more shows at once (booked by paying all deposits at once), you automatically receive a 15% discount on those shows.
When we invoice you for the final balance, you'll see that the discount has been applied to the total stand fee.
