A fun part of the wedding planning process is attending a wedding show. At the OBX Wedding Fest, OBWA wedding professionals create an environment that welcomes couples to enjoy each step of planning their wedding. Here are just 4 reasons for why you should attend the OBX Wedding Fest this summer on Sunday, August 26th!
1: Face to Face Connections
There is so much value found in meeting with a prospective OBX wedding vendor in person! Ensure you connect with the person or business to see that they are a good match for your style and personality. You will be working with these people for whatever the length of your engagement is, and you want to make sure you can easily communicate with them. You're trusting them with details of your very important day, so finding if you vibe with them is vital!
2: Save/Score Deals + Win Giveaways
OBX Wedding Fest vendors have some great deals for those who attend the event! You can even win prizes. Members of OBWA generously donate their services for our door prize raffle drawing. Each ticket holder will receive ticket(s) to enter into one of the three giveaway packages: Adventure Package, Foodie Package, Spa Package. Two of the three include free two night stays! Values are TBD, but trust us -- a $10 ticket is so worth it.
3. You Save Time Planning
The Fest is a one stop shop that will allow you to plan many details of your wedding day at one time! In just hours you'll be able to nail down vendors that you might otherwise have taken weeks to find or communicate details with.
4: Find Inspiration from the Best on the Beach
As excited as the couple's are to meet vendors and gather ideas for their OBX wedding, the OBWA vendors are just as excited to present their best for you! This ranges from top-notch food, cake and other samples, to displays from florists and design specialists and equipment rental companies. Photographers sample their finest work in a comfortable and welcoming environment, and planners and venues showcase their range of offerings, all while giving you endless inspiration for your wedding day. There will also be vendors that you will meet with that offer services you may have overlooked.
The Outer Banks' southern-meets-beach charm, unmatched coastline and landscape, accessibility, and a "keep it local" frame of mind are all potential reasons you chose the Outer Banks for your wedding. OBX Wedding Association wedding vendors are here to provide their experience and expertise to make your wedding one to remember. We hope you'll join us for the 2018 OBX Wedding Fest on Sunday, August 26th at Duck Woods Country Club. Grab your mom, mother-in-law, fiance or besties and make a beach weekend out of it!
