I almost missed the Blissful Outdoor Wedding Show for this year. The event is held near the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station from 4th of Jan till 6th 2013. I remember visiting the event in some previous years, but at that time i was not permanently located in Singapore. Naturally the event has booths from the main hotels, restaurants, bridal boutiques and photographers among others.
In the previous years i’ve been having a booth in couple of wedding events overseas, and i have to say the experience have been mixed. It might be good exposure for some vendors, but the unfortunate reality is that most event organizers just want to sell as many booths as possible. This results in competitors being next to each other and i’ve often found that the tactics used to lure the potential customers become a bit ugly. I cant say it is really good for the couples either who are looking perhaps a wedding photographer or catering. They might be just looking around for ideas, but dont want to be bombarded by the sales people. Blissful Outdoor Wedding Show is relatively small compared to the events i’ve attended, so maybe the atmosphere is not all that chaotic. There is also a goodie bag for couples, but you have to RSVP online at the Blissful website. I think i’ll drop by there tomorrow to have a look.
Choose the best wedding photographer for you
I quite like the fact that most of my customers want my wedding photography because they understand that it is a unique service. In other words, there is only one of me. Also I have no interest in competing with price or throwing in some random giveaways. They say any kind of publicity is good for business, but i would add that you really cant beat the word of mouth. If you still looking for an actual day photographer, i would recommend you have a look at my documentary wedding client galleries and then contact me for free consultation.
