April showers bring May flowers and lots of weddings. The spring and fall are the two biggest wedding seasons and will have customers scrambling around to find the cutest table toppers, shoes, jewelry, favors, decorations, and gifts for the bride and groom. Weddings are just as expensive as they are exciting and fun, so here is where flea market and swap vendors can jump in and offer better bargains for that special day.
When trying to appeal to this audience, you have to think about the different types of products that will catch their eye. If you were planning a wedding right now, what accessories would you want to use?
This is one of the most common and obvious accessories wedding planners will be shopping for, but it’s also one of the most important. Bachelors and bachelorettes love to go all out for their pre-wedding parties and every little accessory counts.
You can get ‘bachelor’ or ‘bachelorette’ inscribed on almost anything, including underwear, costume jewelry, shot and drinking glasses, tiaras, sashes, you name it! Have fun when choosing which products to sell because these customers aren’t necessarily looking for just one accessory, they want everything that’s cute and lights up to celebrate their last days before getting married.
All About That Decor
In these creative days where DIY wedding decorations have become the norm, anything can be a part of the decor. Trying to sell old and used vases or mason jars? Those make for great repurposed centerpieces. Silk or plastic flowers can also be used as decorations and since they don’t need to be placed in water, they can fit just about anywhere. They also make for great impulse buys since they’re super cheap and you can never go wrong with adding more flowers.
Candles of any size and color are another perfect addition to weddings. They can be placed as centerpieces, a sweet remembrance of loved ones who can’t be there, and as general decor around the reception. Basically any home decor or everyday housewares can be used as wedding decorations. Think outside the box and don’t discount items that aren’t traditional wedding colors.
The Night Goes On and On…
After the main parts of the reception, most people like to continue the wedding night with music, dancing, and lots more fun. Flip flops and disposable cameras are perfect to have on hand for those party goers. Women can take off their heels without having to worry about walking around barefoot and the cameras can help make some great scrapbook memories.
Sparklers are also a popular send-off for the bride and groom, and they’re fairly inexpensive. You can make cute packages that contain some sparklers and matches in either a basket or other container so it’s less work for the wedding planners, and you can add a small extra charge for doing the assembly. Wedding decorating is a great way to get those brain juices flowing, so get creative and use these tips to help reach out to your customers.
