So what is a Quinceañera Expo?
A Quinceañera Expo is a place where you meet face-to-face the many planning professionals to show their products and services. This opportunity allows you to visit with professionals and learn about their services for your Quinceañera. Take the tour of the Expo venue and meet the staff that will help with your planning. The Expo is a great experience learning new ideas, great inspiration and tips for your big day.
My Quinceañera is DIY!
Although you are planning a DIY Quinceañera, you can still find inspiration. Many professionals like florists will teach about making boutineers or how to arrange centerpieces. Today, you will more than likely find several vintage decor vendors at a Quinceañera Expo. These vendors often bring in several items and set up displays that are full of inspiration. Even if you do not use anything from them, you may get some great ideas.
I have already booked all my vendors for my Quinceañera.
Good point, we’ve got you covered. While a typical expo has many vendors for your Quinceanera, there are also other vendors who offer items and some for sale items. I’m sure you probably wear makeup for more than just your Quinceañera, you will find that too. And don’t forget about all of the freebies and samples. You are looking for a new hairstyle, and you meet a hairstylist that will do Demos at their table for you to learn. Lastly, what happens if one or more of your vendors double booked? Making these contacts can help with finding a replacement without having to ruffle through the yellow pages.
Fashion Shows are all the Rage!!
Come check out the latest and hottest Quinceañera Gowns for the current season. You can even try some dresses on from the Boutique that has a brought a plethora of gowns to the expo. There is nothing like seeing a gown up close and personal to know what you like. Also, each gown designer has their unique design, and an online photo does these dresses no justice.
Tips to prepare you when attending a Quinceañera Expos
Be comfortable and save the fancy dress and shoes for your Quinceañera Extravaganza. You will be on your feet most of the day, and you will want to be comfortable.
Bring your parents and a friend
Your parents, after all, are paying for this party and they are an integral part of your big day. Quinceañera Expos can be somewhat overwhelming for some, and having a friend tag along can help keep you focused. A friend can give you some breakaway time while your parents are speaking with a vendor and you get bored.
Bring pre-printed address labels
We have had several attendees use this tip and found it works great. Print up some address labels with your name, email and phone number. Many vendors will have a sign-up form for a raffle or email list at their table. Rather than to write this information over and over, simply pull out an address label and place it on the sign-up sheet. This saves time and hand cramps.
Come prepared to sample food
You probably don’t want to come hungry, but don’t eat right before the show either. There will be caterers and bakers with a sampling of their food and cakes. Leave room to enjoy these samples. Don’t forget to bring bottled water because you may be sampling several items.
Come with an open mind
Many families are looking for particular items and specific vendors. Keep an open mind as you may run across something you haven’t thought about. You may have the perfect cake picked out and then come to a show and realize you have changed your mind. You will find that most vendors at the show are willing to hear what you want and find a way to meet your needs.
