  1. 1

    Find out about upcoming bridal shows in your service area. Speak with the trade-show coordinator and book a booth. Ask about what is provided in terms of tables, tablecloths and electricity.

  2. 2

    Plan your booth on paper. The trade-show director can tell you about the physical set-up of the booth. For example, your space may be 8 feet wide by 6 feet deep. Decide whether you'll need a table, displays or other furnishings. Also decide on the type of decor. You want something that will stand out and be inviting for brides and their friends.

  3. 3

    Create some kind of promotional giveaway, contest or competition. Make a big sign advertising this.

  4. 4

    Set up your large items first, including table, chairs, displays or televisions. Decorate with wedding-themed decor, such as tulle, flowers and ribbon. Place your marketing materials--business cards, brochures, pamphlets--on a small table within reach of people walking by.

  5. 5

    Place your promotion or contest sign at eye-level. Draw attention to it by decorating it or highlighting it with colour. Set out the information cards associated with the raffle/contest/promotion.

  6. 6

    Hang the company banner up on the back wall and make sure the booth attendants are dressed in professional attire.
