Culturally Interactive Wedding Showcase Announcement
Culturally Interactive Wedding Showcase Announcement
If you made it this far, just know you are having a better Friday than all those other wedding vendors liking pictures on IG…still. We have been busy planning, creating, and putting together what we believe to be the most incredible wedding show of the year. Yeah, we may be hyping ourselves up a tad, but hey, we mean business. We seriously are so thankful for your support and encouragement. Whether you took part in our first magazine issue or wedding show, we have always been “social media friends”, or we haven’t had the chance to meet yet, we thank you.
At times it can be a challenge keeping up with the many conversations one has with clients and or other wedding vendors, however, with all of you, it is easy. You have given us motivation, words of advice, and best of all, genuine friendships. This industry is a whole lot of fun, but we all know it comes with its down sides. You always feel like you have to be doing something, never know when to call the day quits, and sometimes you just need a margarita (or 2 or 3 or 4 or 12).Today we encourage you to mix that margarita and get comfy. We have some exciting news and we want you to be one of the first to hear!
Our mission is unique, and it attracts a unique crowd. It attracts the people who are not scared to make a bold move, or stick up for what is right. These people are the tradition breaking, barrier crushing, do anything I can for anyone kind of people. The ones who thrive on the happiness of others. We want to take this same energy into our next adventure.
Here it comes…We are officially announcing our next Wedding Showcase!!! Save the date and mark your calendars. Sunday, October 13th, 2019 will be the first ever Culturally Interactive Wedding Showcase hosted by yours truly, Northeast Ohio Weddings Magazine. The show will be indoors (and potentially outdoors as well) at Market Place in Crocker Park in Westlake. from 12-4pm. We believe that everyone deserves to be fully and joyously celebrated, and that includes the wedding vendors. This show is catered towards providing an engaging experience for both vendors and couples, and here is how we will do it!
How many times have you seen potential clients avoid eye contact with you, just to avoid your approach or simple greeting? Some people really put art into the way they dodge booths at wedding shows, are we right? We have noticed this time and time again and it is time we put a stop to it. Our execution is derived from motivation guests have to win a Grand Prize. This show we will be giving away a great one. In order to win, the couples must par take in mini games and events set up at each booth. This could range anywhere from a simple ring toss game, to a bride learning how to tie a bow-tie, decorate a cupcake, create a floral arrangement, or whatever your imagination tells you! These games will be diverse, engaging, and full of genuine interaction. In order to win the “grand prize,” the couples must complete the task at every booth and talk with vendors in order to check it off of their list. In the meantime, these mini events break the ice between vendor and client to allow for ease of conversation.
There is no messing around. We are tired of the maybes and tired of chasing a sale down because a bride or groom has to discuss it with their partner beforehand. We are all about getting the decision makers through the door and at your booth. Of course,we are welcoming to parents, grandparents, children, pets, and anyone who has a love for what we do and or wants to support their loved one. However, this show will be directed towards the couple. Our execution is to pitch this show as a date day full of engaging activities, free food samples, and exclusive giveaways. We will portray this day with their partner in mind and hopefully they won’t leave the house without them
We are searching far and wide for the most unique wedding vendors to be a part of our show. We want to provide an experience that will leave a lasting impression in someone’s mind for a long while. With our venue being indoors and outdoors, we are really able to get crazy with this. Wedding dunk tank? Horse drawn carriage rides? Awesome! Fine by us. Do you make wedding cakes that explode with lava? Great. The more exploding lava cakes the better. We will have a talented artist showing off her amazing bridal henna tattoo skills. Which brings us to another point. We want this show to be as successful for you as possible! Sell your services day of and secure those connections with clients. Let’s get crazy!
All of our vendors will have their logo and short synopsis in our next magazine issue. You will also have an amazing opportunity to advertise in our next issue at an e x t r e m e discount. Our magazine will be given out to each couple and distributed at all of the Barnes and Noble’s in Northeast Ohio as well as 100 other boutiques and shops. We have a lot to do before the big day, but we don’t want you to miss out. We will be opening this show to any wedding vendor who likes to take on adventure and is ready to blow the roof off this next wedding season. This may only be our second wedding show, but we don’t use that as an excuse. More so for raw, motivating energy to keep going and continue being better. We can promise you two things. One, we will do whatever it takes to provide a quality experience for you. Two, we will send the lead list to you within 24 hours of the show….when’s the last time that happened? We are so excited! Thank you to all who tuned in tonight. Feel free to dm us for more information or use this link below to sign up today with our special early bird price!
