    I need some advice. I have an opportunity to do a bridal fair at the end of Feb. The rental fee is $125 and I have to give a gift valued at $100 to be given as a drawing. They will be providing a 5' round table or said they could put me upstairs and give me a 8' long table instead. This is the first year this is being done so there is no way to know how many will be attending. I tried to ask her how big the space was to see I could bring tables of my own. She said she didn't think there would be room. This kind of leads me to believe that the space is pretty small. This would be my first fair like this so I don't know what to do. I will have to come up with the money myself, so I don't know if it is a wise investment or not.
    I guess I just need someone to give me a gentle push in either direction...

    that is a tough situation. if it was me i would probably do it. i do a flea market/craft fair every month and the cost is 60 bucks!! some months i get a lot of feedback some i get none. with this being the first time they are doing a show like this maybe more people will come. also valentines day is coming...the month of love...lots of people getting engaged!! you just never know until you try. if you have the money to spare i would say go for it. you never know what will happen until you try it!!

    Don't forget too the new bridal registry. With couples being able to register with PC and give out your consultant number to access their registry it will generate alot of sales. I forgot when they said that would take affect but it is deffinetely something to look forward too.

    The new registry system starts March first. And I think they do not need to have your consultant #, just your name. Good luck

    I was told by my director at our last cluster meeting that they would need your consultant number. They will give them cards when they register for the bride to pass out or mail with the number on it.

    Bridal Fairs in My area

    can Run up to a $1,000 for vendors, so $225 is a great deal! I would give it a try.

    Booths

    It may not be so bad of a fee if you have another consultant come and help you and split the fee and door prize. Directors get a reimbursement every month, I think it is $50, for doing booths and things so maybe your director can get in on the booth with you? If it is your director than you only have to split the $50 difference.
