My 1st wedding fayre.
I was really expecting a lot from this wedding fayre and the set up when i got there was a room on its own like an office but with a big glass sliding door at the front and a big large white table for me to put my wedding cakes on i have got to admit i was disapointed there were all split rooms with people showing differn't items wedding dresses ,photography,etc i had got my tasters all ready my cards and everything looked so pretty but i think the room was a let down but to top it there was no one really who came to this wedding fayre i had a few customers who i talked too and loved my cakes and took some cards and cake but the lady who was the organiser didnt seem that bothered she made her appologies and she said she had done loads of advertising but she said she found this market very hard one to takle it hasn't put me of wedding fayres but it has made me more cautious of where i go next time ! i am wanting to take my cakes to a wedding cake internantional show in london or birmingham where you know you will have plenty of people coming through those doors and who will see your cakes and you are guranteed some customers who want to follow you and make orders ,i have only been making cakes seriously from the start of 2012 and i love my job cakes is my world .
Advice on wedding fayres ,make sure you take some tasters for customers to taste ,have a banner displaying your work and name,and all your details of your website ,phone number ,blog,twitter,etc
make sure you dont sit behind a desk and hide stand up and always greet people,don't put yourself on people your cakes should say it all,have cards at hand for people to take them so they can stay in touch.and i think talking and listening to your customers is so important especially when it is there big day .
