Bridal Show Giveaway/Drawing?

I decided fairly last minute to do a bridal show and am debating on doing some sort of drawing or giveaway. Has anyone done this? Suggestions on on what to give away? I am already doing coupons for those who are willing to book our services that day or within a month after the show... but i am looking to get a little creative. Thanks!

Make sure your prize is a real prize. Not something lame like "10 free DVDs copies when you book us".

Do something like a basket with a few good wedding oriented DVD movies - like "Father of the Bride", "My Best Friend's Wedding", "Four Weddings And A Funeral", "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", etc. Include your demo dvd with those movies.

Excellent suggestion!!! I saw someone a while ago posted about a free iPod with their video on it... but that would also apply to those booking our services. I really liked the iPod idea and wanted to try that, but keeping it simple like movies sounds great too!! Thanks! Any more ideas?

why not offer a prize of a free "basic" love story to be shown at their reception. that way they're much more inclined to book with you because you're already doing the love story, but they wont feel like it's a prize with a catch.
