Vendor Information 

We are now accepting vendor applications for the October 22ND, 2017 tour.

 

Tour time (apx): 12pm-5pm

2017 participating venues: Bella Fiori Gardens, Stone Ridge Event Center, Columbia Center Red Lion

 

Bridal shows can be exhausting and overwhelming for brides. Instead of being herded through bridal show booths and enduring sales pitch after sales pitch, brides can relax and have fun on Uniquely, I Do’s Wedding Tour. This is a special day designed to pamper brides as they are chauffeured (limos, buses, trolleys) to tour venues and meet with wedding professionals in an intimate setting.

 

You can tell a couple how awesome your wedding service or products are. The Wedding Tour will let them experience it for themselves!

 

We are accepting 1 vendor in each category (photographer, DJ, officiant, caterer, cake designer, florist, event planner, etc.) for each venue on the tour. Vendors must set up in the style of a ‘real {mini} wedding’ at the venue, and have a representative present during the entire tour. Vendors are encouraged to get creative! Vendors are expected to offer samplings of their service/products: DJs will play music, cake designers/caterers offer samples, designers have an area designed, photographers taking photos, hairstylists doing hair, models in bridal gowns

 

Due to the limited number of vendor spots we have available, vendors must ‘apply’ for a spot on the tour. Vendors who participated in previous shows will be given priority, but not guaranteed placement.

 

Vendor Participation Cost, includes 1 year listing on website: $350.00

FAQ Tour Questions:

Q: Doesn’t the Tri-Cities have enough bridal shows?

         A: The Wedding Tour it is not intended to replace or compete with bridal shows. It is an offering of a unique experience for brides to get to meet and see wedding professionals in a new, meaningful, memorable way. And, the Three River’s Bridal Show is no longer hosting their October Bridal Show, so the Wedding Tour will be the ONLY fall show in the Tri-Cities!!

Q: Will I have a booth to set up my display?

       A: No. You will be provided a table and a space at the venue where your goods or services would normally be found at a real wedding. We encourage you to get as creative and interactive with your space as possible.

Q: Can I hang up a banner and hand out promotional material?

         A: Yes, you can hang a banner from your table or with a free standing banner stand-however; we encourage you to stop thinking of setting your booth up in a ‘traditional trade show’ style. Think of setting up a space more in the style of a personal consult, while showcasing your goods/services. And yes, you are welcome to hand out promotional material.

Q: How many brides will attend the show?

        A: Again, the concept of the wedding tour is to give brides an intimate opportunity to meet with vendors giving you an opportunity to make a lasting impression, therefor; we will not have ‘hundreds of brides’ attending the wedding tour.  Our goal is to have apx. 75 brides + guests attend.

Q: I would like to participate in the show, but my vendor category is full how can I become a vendor?

        A: Regrettably, each show is limited to the number of vendors that can participate. If you apply to be a vendor, and your category is full, we will put you on a cancellation list and alert you to any openings.

Q: How many tours will there be a year?

        A: There will be one show annually, in October. With the Three River’s Bridal Show no longer hosting their fall show, we feel this will be the optimal time of year for the tour.
