I am sure you have heard there are a few local bridal shows going on this month, so we wanted to give you a few tips to prepare yourself for a fun, but sometimes overwhelming day so that you can handle bridal shows like a pro.

  • Take a minute to check out the show website, there may be some incentives for you to go early, or pre-register to avoid line ups or get free swag.
  • Is the event on Facebook? Take a look and RSVP! You may have access to contests or information that will help you have a great experience at the show.
  • Make a list of the vendors you are hoping to talk to and hopefully book. Are you still looking for a photographer or caterer, make sure you leave yourself time to chat with the vendors you are most interested in first.
  • Go prepared, often you will get handouts or take away items, so you will want to carry a bag to add those items too. A pen can come in handy as well. (some shows will hand both of these out)
  • A lot of the vendors will be looking to take down your contact information, including your email. If you are wanting to cut down on email overload create a new wedding email. ([email protected]) This will also help you stay organized with any important information as you move forward with your planning
  • Print Labels, a lot of couples often print custom labels with their names, phone number and email address on it to make entering information much faster. You can even add your wedding date for those vendors that may be collecting information from you to send you more information.
  • Have Fun! Some shows can be overwhelming with information and crowds, but remember it is a very exciting and happy time in your life, so just slow down and enjoy it!

Regarding the current health crisis as of March 20th, 2020

The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 virus is understandably sparking questions and concerns at our local and national levels in all areas of our daily life. We want to address questions that we have had regarding our business procedure as we navigate through this challenging time.

Runway Bridal has made the difficult but socially responsible choice to temporarily close our doors until April 6th. We will re-assess the situation at that time from guidance our local and provincial governments.

To our current Brides, we know this is a stressful time not knowing the uncertainties of things and we want to reassure you that at this time all of our designers are still working hard to get your dresses here. We will remain working in the store throughout this time accept and prepare orders.

For our Future Bride, as always brides should shop for their bridal gowns 9-12 moths before their weddings. This is a standard recommendation for brides to get the best selection and custom options. We have a great variety of gowns that will also be available off the rack for shorter wedding dates when we resume business.

Please be sure to view our current gowns, bridesmaids, prom and more on our website, and tune into our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates and live events to brighten your day.

We are grateful for our support systems including patient and understanding clients during this challenging time. We look forward to serving our current and future brides in the near future.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you have, via phone, email, and private message.

Stay Healthy,
Brooke & the staff at Runway Bridal
