I went to my first bridal show ever last weekend. I have to say that I was not quite prepared for all of the different types of vendors and for their sometimes really aggressive tactics!
Especially off-putting were the nationwide chain tuxedo places who didn't want to take "no thank you" for an answer (since we haven't even decided on colors yet).
I've already decided that I want to do business with local, small businesses, if possible, so agressive tactics make me even more certain that I don't want to use nationwide chains.
My question is this - Do you go online for vendors or what? And if you go to bridal shows, what's the best way to tell agressive sales people, "back off, buster" and maintain a modicum of dignity?
