We actually have around 6-8 shows a year in our market and they are ALL on the weekend as far as I know. I wouldn't pay to be in a show if it was on a weekday because it wouldn't draw a crowd.

Yeah, but why not Sunday. IMO, Sunday is the only day for a show. I did one yesterday, and practically every wedding on the database was planned for Saturday at 4:30. Some were for 5:00.

BTW, I do seven shows a year and usually have a great time. It's a rush, and I also like networking with other vendors. What's the name of the show that you're talking about?

Maybe it's a market difference again. We have a fairly strong religious presence and Saturdays are always 2-3 times as busy as Sundays. If the show was squeezed down to just Sunday I don't know if it would be as effective.

The name of the show we just did escapes me. Something like "The Fall Show". I know . . super-creative, right?

I think it was the every quarter show put on by Lynda S. over here. She was actually my wedding coordinator for my wedding.

I don't think so. It was a guy who put this one together. The name doesn't really matter though.
