Subjective matter of wedding planning can’t be tailored into a wedding exhibition. Read on why?
- Wedding Exhibitions originated 10 years back in Jaipur
- Today, they are places to do shopping
- Complete wedding planning is not happening at these wedding exhibitions
Wedding season or not, wedding exhibitions can be seen all over the place. Does it make sense to attend one of these wedding exhibitions in your city? Let us see the origin and why of these wedding exhibitions. We, as Splash events, The Wedding Planners have witnessed the origin and sudden upsurge of these exhibitions as we have been around 20 years in the wedding industry in Jaipur and please we are not trying to boast about it, just a matter of fact.
Wedding exhibition concept was started by wedding industry pioneer or more of a trailblazer, Late, Mr. Sanjay Godha, almost 12 years back, by the name of Lagan Mandap. He was a true dedicated wedding professional who crafted new ideas- to make this beautiful land a destination wedding land .The idea of Lagan mandap which I saw was very succinct and beautiful, promote wedding as an industry in Rajasthan.
Time went by and this idea of wedding exhibition has been taken up by many. We can read every now and then the wedding exhibitions being put up, every wedding exhibition claims to be bigger, more splendid and more magnificent than the other one. In today’s times, if you go through the elements of these entire wedding exhibitions, you will find all of them have been organized by a relatively new wedding planner or a new hotel that has come up. In these wedding exhibitions, one can go and do all wedding shopping under one roof-wedding clothes, wedding jewellery, wedding footwear, make up ,hair stylist, wedding caterers, wedding photographers. These wedding exhibitions are more about wedding shopping, with limited vendors, for each product being sold . Also the wedding planner wants to get some publicity and same is the case with the hotel organizing wedding exhibition.
The term wedding exhibition is covered in a very miniscule manner in these wedding exhibitions. Wedding involves ideation of the events and this ideation is the most subjective thing as it involves the recreation of the wedding dreams in the most feasible and beautiful manner. This is more of one to one exchange of ideas between the wedding host and the wedding planner. The expert view of wedding planner can help the wedding couple recreate the wedding plan. Wedding exhibitions, in current times are more of wedding shopping items display place where you can shop but again with limited wedding shopping vendors’ option. You as a wedding family will have more options of shopping, when you enter the markets of Jaipur, which is a true shopper’s paradise.
Our view as wedding planner for these wedding exhibitions is not against, they are a good medium to create curiosity about wedding planning in the families having wedding .These exhibitions should include broad and structured outline for wedding planning, that will make them complete wedding exhibitions. If these wedding exhibitions are more about wedding shopping then the specific purpose of wedding shopping should be communicated to the visitors . It will help in achieving the target of wedding shopping purchases and make both the wedding exhibition organizer and the visitors happy, to be part of these wedding exhibitions.
