The Palm Springs area is one of the fastest growing destination wedding locations in the United States. With no shortage of country clubs, hotels and various other unique venues in the desert, many vendors count on the wedding business to fill a large portion of their calendar. While the economy can be unpredictable, there is one thing you can always count on; people will always be getting married.
Over the past 10 to 15 years, the internet has made it easy for couples to sit down in front of their computers to compare products and services for their special day. While there are numerous wedding web sites with an overload of useful information, nothing will close a sale faster than a bride being able to touch, taste, smell or talk about what she is getting. Bridal shows have always been a great way for wedding vendors to introduce their services and to meet prospective couples face to face. Talking directly to the bride and groom gives businesses the advantage of building a relationship with them and to answer any questions they have or have not thought of.
Despite the internet putting a dent in the bridal show business, there is one show that continues to grow each year; the Indian Wells Country Club Bridal Faire. Rich in history, the Indian Wells Country Club has gathered some of the top wedding professionals in the Valley for the fifth year in a row for their annual Bridal Faire. The Club has narrowed it down to approximately 20 Local vendors they have worked with over the years who will be putting their best foot forward. Many of the vendors will help fill the guests goodie bags and stomachs as they stroll around to make plans for their nuptials. The once intimate bridal show for a few dozen brides is expecting to swell to about 200 to 250 guests this year.
During the event, brides will tour various banquet rooms decorated for wedding ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners and even wedding showers. The Indian Wells Country Club, along with representatives from their sister clubs, Desert Falls and Mission Hills Country Club, will give couples the opportunity to chat with the Club’s expert event planners while enjoying complimentary hors d’ oeuvres in addition to sipping on wine and champagne.
Besides meeting local wedding vendors, guests will be treated to a bridal fashion show with models wearing the latest styles for men and women. As an incentive to book ASAP, all three clubs are offering a complimentary champagne toast for any wedding booked by February 1st 2013. Although your wedding may cost you a pretty penny this bridal faire is FREE.
If you interested in becoming a wedding vendor for the Indian Wells Bridal Faire or if you would like to call and make a reservation the number is: 760.834.6018.
