Today's Bride Pros

April Today’s Bride Rules

NOTE:  It’s your responsibility to understand and abide by these rules AND share them with your staff.

* Indicates a revision from last year

Our insurance carrier and facilities instructed us to strictly enforce the show rules and regulations as indicated on your show contract. This will ensure a safe and enjoyable trade show experience not only for participating businesses but, more importantly, our valued attendees – your customers. Please read and adjust your presentation and set-up display if necessary.

Prior to the event, please review and share these guidelines with your staff scheduled to work your exhibit.


1) All booth display materials including all persons must stay within their contracted booth space and not infringe upon the aisle walkways or other booth spaces. All aisles must remain clear of obstruction. In April & July Showsbackdrops are not provided  to create a roomier aesthetic in the ballroom.  If you are bringing your own tall backdrop, contact us immediately. That will affect your booth location.   Contact Today’s Bride if you are planning to bring a tall backdrop.

NOTE: When designing your booth, keep in mind not to block line of site to the neighboring exhibitors.  A good rule of thumb is to be conscious of objects taller than 5′ placed towards the front of the booth such as vertical banners are an obstruction.  Today’s Bride management may instruct you to shift the items if they are blocking your neighbor.

2) Maximum of four staff members are permitted to exhibit in a single booth space at one time.  Maximum two staffers for a tabletop exhibitm.

3) NO distribution of any marketing materials is permitted in aisles, registration areas, seating areas, restrooms, parking lots/garages or grounds of event facility.

4) Distribution of any non-participating, non-contracted business literature (business cards, brochures, signage, etc.) is strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, photographs or displays with “courtesy of” acknowledgement of said businesses. The only exception is if the mentioned business is also an exhibitor of the show.

5) Distributing literature or displaying signage regarding a competing Bridal Show or Event (whether at your facility or not) is strictly prohibited unless Today’s Bride is a sponsor of the event.

6) Exhibits cannot be torn down prior to 8:00 pm! The takedown, removal or repackaging of booth materials and/or displays during posted bridal show hours is strictly prohibited. Not only is this disrespectful to attendees and neighboring booths but it poses a hazard while transporting said materials through event facility.Early tear down will result in forfeiture of the lead list.

7) All food and liquids to be served as samples are not permitted to be distributed to attendees without prior approval from both the facility AND Jadlyn Inc./Today’s Bride.

8) Food for your staff is not permitted to be brought into the facility from outside restaurants, fast food chains or catering companies. The facility offers several dining areas that can accommodate your staff.

9) Distribution of alcoholic beverages, in any form, to attendees is strictly prohibited.

10) All audio, video and/or gaming productions must be maintained at appropriate noise levels so not to infringe on the peace and harmony of neighboring booths. Jadlyn Incorporated/Today’s Bride reserves the right to determine and set the acceptable sound level in all such instances.

11) Your company must provide its own “surge-suppressant” power strip and extension cord(s) for your electrical needs.

12) The Bridal Lead List is established for Bridal Show Exhibitors only. Furthermore, the list is coded and alias emails provided within the Locklead system to enable us to monitor its use.

Exhibitor shall insure himself / herself / itself for $1,000,000 against any such loss, and shall name Management and the show site as additional insureds there under. If requested, exhibitor shall provide proof of business liability insurance and all necessary licenses and permits to operate said business.

14) Exhibitor shall make good any damage to the building or fixtures caused by exhibitor or any of exhibitors’ agents or employees. Exhibitors are responsible for any loss of their equipment and/or display material, or personal belongings, resulting from accidental breakage, misplacement, theft, fire or natural disaster, including, but not limited to, damage occurring while Management staff is assisting an exhibitor.
