Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept leaflets for goody bags from non-exhibitors?

No, I'm afraid we don't. 

We personally feel that such practices undermine the efforts of the exhibitors attending and so we don't permit non-exhibitors to add any materials to goody bags.

We do however, accept magazines for our visiting couples to enjoy.

Do I need to use a table?

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

Can I supply magazines for your shows?

Yes, please!

We LOVE printed media and welcome it whole-heartedly for our couples.

If you wish to provide this, you are welcome to either visit and meet us - we ask that you arrive by 9:30 so that we can receive you and distribute the magazines effectively.

Or, you can pop them in the post to us at The Wedding Scene Limited, 30 Salisbury Street, Blandford Forum, Dorset DT11 7AR.

We provide 75 goody bags per show (200 for The Ultimate Wedding Show), and ask that magazines are to this number as a minimum. 

If you wish to send more, we will gladly present them in the welcome, inspiration and chill out areas of the show for the guests to enjoy and take home with them.

Besides exhibiting, how else can I get involved?

Our wedding shows are action-packed, so if you're exhibiting with us, there are always more ways 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
  • Venue Decoration

Get in touch to discuss! hello@theweddingscene.co.uk

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.

Which forms of payment do you accept?

We accept;

  • BACS
  • Cheque
  • Card Payment via Stripe
  • GoCardless - if you are paying by Direct Debit

We would prefer electronic means of payment, and not to receive cash, as it just means an extra trip to the bank

Do you do last minute discounts?

No, abso-blinking-lutely not.

I was a wedding supplier, and do you know how many times I was exhibiting next to someone, with the same size stand, who had paid half the price I did? Countless times, and I was no less livid each time.

We reward the organised only, we offer discounts of 10% for multiple bookings, and we might give a discretionary discount if you're helping us out with something for the show but categorically no last minute space filler discounts will be given. Please don't ask, it is insulting to us, and to all of your peers.
