A showcase of images from our booth at this year’s Bridal & Honeymoon Showcase in Melbourne 2017

Bridal & Honeymoon Showcase

Bridal & Honeymoon Showcase is Australia’s largest bridal expo. This year, the event was celebrating its one-millionth guest. Because of this, they were offering FREE tickets to anyone who pre-registered. This made the event even bigger than in previous years!

Melbourne’s event was held on the 19th & 20th August at the Royal Exhibition Carlton. Feel Good Events were lucky enough to be provided with a 6x6x3m L-Shaped space where we showcased Rustic and classic wedding decor and equipment.

We also ran our own competition exclusively for expo attendees – offering a $3,000 styling package.

We used our Soft White Velvet Draping to provide a backdrop. This also helped to showcase the amazing dresses worn during this year’s Logie Awards.

With hundreds of entries and plenty queries, the expo was a huge success for us.

BEHIND THE SCENES

Bump In began at approximately 3:30pm Friday 18th with 4 of our staff installing the velvet draping on one side of the Exhibition Building. This would be used as a backdrop. Our efforts then shifted to our exhibitor’s booth. We had to complete multiple trips to bring in all the furniture and styling equipment. We completed our initial setup at approximately 7:30pm.

Day 1 began with some finishing styling touches to the decor and florals before the event doors opened to the public at 10am. There was a steady stream of attendees throughout the day and at times found our team of 2 found themselves overwhelmed by a number of people queuing various equipment and decor items we had out on display.
Day 2 was much the same and by the end of the 2 days, we had spoken to many brides-to-be. Some with their wedding around the corner and just at the event for last-minute inspiration and others were in the very early stages of planning their wedding.

2 of our expert installers met our exhibitors at 4pm Sunday afternoon for bump out. The whole process took slightly longer than 3 hours only due to having to battle for parking space with other exhibitors.

The expo was a huge success!
