So you’re on the fence whether to purchase tickets to Valley Wed or not? Perhaps you’re wondering if this kind of wedding showcase, or any wedding showcase at all, is for you? Read on and we will dive into what to expect at Valley Wed and why it’s unlike other showcases out there.
We describe Valley Wed as “…a carefully curated wedding showcase with the goal of inspiring personal connections and honoring individual styles with a locally sourced approach. We have handpicked a selection of exceptional wedding professionals in Western Massachusetts and slightly beyond! Our vendors are passionate about their work and excited to offer a fresh perspective for your wedding day.” But what does that mean? Valley Wed is set apart from your traditional wedding expo by filtering out the best of the best vendors, to simplify your wedding showcase experience. Rather than overwhelming you with 5-10 different options of DJs, we select 2 that through our experience and their application we deem as the top of their game. We strive to do a lot of your leg work for you when searching for the perfect wedding professionals, by bringing the best of each category and style to one location. Valley Wed strikes the balance between intimate and excellent, with still giving you variance. We review applications and hand pick each wedding professional to participate. If we feel a category of vendors is lacking, we approach professionals and request they be a part of our show. Valley Wed aims to deliver nothing but the highest quality and level of wedding professional excellence to its attendees.
When you walk through the doors of the rustic barn at Quonquont Farm you will be greeted by a staff member who will confirm your registration for the show, as well as give you the lay of the land. There will be food to snack on as you mingle, as well as a bar with both seasonal cocktails and mocktails for your liking. You may circulate the show with a glass of wine, cocktail, mimosa, or seltzer if you like! You will receive a list of the attending vendors, giving you the opportunity to seek them out, or to browse each booth as you go along. The atmosphere has been described as laid back, warm, and friendly. We take away the white noise and overwhelming nature of the huge shows, to bring you opportunities to connect one on one with vendors you might actually consider booking.
As you circulate, you’ll have a chance to try samples, discuss possibilities, and even see a few of the vendors at work. Valley Wed vendors are approachable and personable, and ready to chat about what assistance and support you need for your day. If it’s a nice day, you’ll have the opportunity to get some fresh air and take a walk around the patio or sit in an Adirondack chair and look out on to the hillside. By registering for a ticket to the show you’ll also have the opportunity to win a door prize or giveaways as you visit vendors at their tables.
You see, it’s hard for us to think that there is any question whether or not to get your tickets and get excited for Valley Wed! As it is unique in that is both a low pressure, yet highly productive experience for most couples that attend- a combination that can be hard to find when planning a wedding!
This year we also have added the addition of selling tickets for individual time slots to try and pace the crowd of the show. This will allow our attendees to really have the time and space to connect with the vendors! The tickets will be sold as follows:
11am - 12pm (VIP Ticket holders)
12pm - 1pm
1pm - 2pm
What are VIP Ticket, holders you may ask? Guests who choose to attend the show from 11am to 12pm will have exclusive access to the show and vendors with added amenities. The tickets are more expensive, but well worth the added cost. These guests will be greeted at the door with a complimentary glass of champagne to drink as they circulate. There will be exclusive door prizes and giveaways for this hour, with a limited number of tickets to be sold, meaning more winners! During this hour, our vendors will step outside of their booth and get involved- offering interactive one on one sessions and talks on the best tips when planning for your big day. This could be anything from a talk about how to write your own wedding vows to learning how to accessorize yourself on your wedding day to accommodate multiple looks. This hour will pack quite the punch for value and quality! VIP Ticket holders will have the chance to remain beyond their hour of the show, but will need to be during that first hour in order to partake in these exclusive activities and amenities!
