Going to bridal and wedding expos is a great way for brides and grooms to learn about wedding professionals and ultimately narrow down what they like and don’t like. You have the chance to see photos, taste wedding cakes and hear wedding music.
Last night I attended a wedding showcase in New York City hosted by The Pros. The Pros specialize in wedding photographers, videographers and wedding disc jockeys. You can book one or all three of these services among the various packages they offer. Unlike the much larger bridal expos that feature hundreds of vendors and an overwhelming amount of information, this event was smaller and more focused.
Brides and Grooms enjoyed wine and cheese while they were able to speak with wedding photographers and videographers, view their work and get to know them.
There was a lively presentation by the wedding disc jockeys who work with The Pros, which was a terrific way to get a flavor for each DJ’s style and personality in addition to getting you in the spirit of your own wedding planning. They even got everyone up and dancing with the future brides doing the electric slide and then grooms-to-be showed off their spelling skills with the wedding favorite, YMCA.
The Pros were voted The Knot’s 2011 Best of Weddings. Whether you’re getting married in New York City or any of the other cities they’re in, you can check to see if they have a showcase near you. Oh, and there are door prizes too.
