The Insider’s Guide to

Wedding Shows Top tips for attending wedding shows Wedding Shows are one of the best ways to get organized with your planning and meet a lot of vendors all in one day. You will see some of the current wedding trends, hot bridal fashions, taste food & cake samples and have the opportunity to book services at a discounted rate. Here’s a few tips to be prepared for show day:

Come prepared to book vendors at the show. Many vendors have show day specials so be sure to bring your credit card or cash to take advantage of deals.

Pre-register for the show. This will save you time at check-in and often gives you a discounted ticket rate.

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. You will be doing a lot of walking & standing. The last thing you want is to be uncomfortable while trying to make important decisions.

16


Don’t bring anything that will be a hassle to carry with you all day-like your coat or a large handbag. You will want something to carry brochures and handouts.

Bring someone with you to help with decisions. Make it a fun day with your ance, wedding party or family. It helps to have someone to sort out the options.

Bring pre-printed address labels to save time lling out info cards or drawing entries. Most vendors want to know your name, address, email and wedding date.

Most importantly, HAVE FUN! This is a day to get some of the wedding to-do’s checked off your list but be sure to enjoy the fashion show, discounts & freebies, test out photobooths and much more!

What makes Savvi different from other men’s wedding apparel stores? Savvi offers a wide range of tuxedo and suit styles, colors, sizes, and prices, guaranteeing a perfect t and look for your entire wedding party. We offer the convenience and peace of mind of having the largest men’s wedding apparel warehouse in St. Louis. Each Savvi location has certied formalwear consultants trained to do last minute alterations while you wait! In a typical wedding party, several groomsmen will email their measurements and try-on their wedding apparel only hours before the event. If the slim t pants are too tight, Savvi can quickly provide a replacement. Virtually no other men’s wedding apparel retailer in St. Louis can provide a replacement from their warehouse in time. Savvi is truly unique!

20

How will you guarantee everything will fit perfectly? Our local inventory provides you with a level of service and quality unmatched by any other tuxedo company. We are unique in that we provide same day rentals and last-minute exchanges right up to the moment you step down the aisle. We know that having a warehouse over 500 miles away is useless when you need an exchange within the hour. Because we can provide exchanges so easily, we encourage all customers to have an in-store nal tting to ensure they look their very best. Our competitors will hand you your wedding attire without encouraging you to try it on because they know that if it doesn’t t, there’s not much they can do to correct it.


There are several different tuxedos I like, is it possible for me to see what each looks like on my groom before deciding? Because our warehouse is local, it’s easy for us to provide you with a complimentary groom’s tuxedo try-on, so that you can see what looks best on the groom before you order. Virtually no other competitor will offer you this benet because it’s too expensive for them to ship the tuxedo back and forth across the country for you to try-on for free. Savvi is unique! We have tuxedos and suits in slim and modern ts, and in all colors: navy, cobalt, tan, black, white, ivory, brown and all shades of grey! Our groom’s free try on is one of the reasons we were Voted Best in Suits & Tuxedos!

Do you prefer a suit? Suits are available in boy’s size 3 to men’s size 68! You can be condent that Savvi will have your party looking their best on your wedding day, whether they are wearing a suit or tuxedo.

I have several groomsmen out of state, how will that work for them? Savvi Formalwear has over 400 locations across North America. If one of your groomsmen lives in

Atlanta and the wedding is in St. Louis, they simply go to the local Savvi Formalwear and ask for complimentary measurements. It’s easy to submit the measurements through our website.
