How to be a Simply Supplier

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at a Simply Weddings Show!

To become an exhibitor at any of our shows is very easy, pop us a message, or email us back the booking form, we will then send you the invoice, plus all of the promotional artwork and set up information. 

With all Venue showcases we will only take a maximum of 15% of the show as Photography and a maximum of 2 of all other trades. At the Truro Bridal Showcase it is 15-20% Photography and 3 of everything else. 

This is because we do not believe in filling a show with lots of the same trade, we pride ourselves in offering variety for the visiting couples, but also we feel that as a supplier it would not benefit you.


What do Simply provide?

Advertising

Social - We pride ourselves in promoting all events as much as we possibly can. We start with a Facebook Event, which you can become a joint host. This is great place to add updates, shout about what will be happening and share all over social media. We also promote on Instagram and Twitter.

Websites- Our shows are listed on Cornwall Wedding fairs, Guides for Brides, Wedding Fairs and Wed 

Out and about - We purchase large banners for each event to be displayed either at the venue or nearby and The Truro Bridal showcase has 2 Mobile Billboards showing the venue and dates, these are set up in advance of the shows.

Goody Bags and Gifts

All couples are provided with a show card (a handy way for them to jot down anything they love or any appointments), a pen, and a goody bag.

Bags have a teabag and a packet of biscuits.. bear with me.. Its so when they get home they can pop the kettle on and sit down and sort through all of the flyers, vouchers and magazines.

We also give out VIP bags, given at random times during the day. This have the added gift from Simply (Jewellery, Chocolates, Cufflinks or sometimes a voucher from the spa) Suppliers are welcome to add to these bags, a small gift or an upgraded voucher.

We also have a selection of Bridal magazines that are free to all couples.
