BrideScan

If you used BrideScan in the last show, YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY SIGNED UP AGAIN. Please bring back your App Suite to the next show (your lanyards and sign containing your unique QR Code). Don't have your stuff? Send us an email and we'll replace your suite inclusions for a small fee.

If this is your first time using BrideScan, you can pick up your suite on move-in day. DO NOT REGISTER YOUR COMPANY WITH BRIDESCAN.COM. Show management handles this for you. Once we sign you up, you will receive a welcome email from BrideScan prompting you to change your password and update your profile with a business description, open dates, rates and prices, and more.

  • Brides and grooms attending the show will download BrideScan and complete their profile with their contact information, wedding date and any other information they wish to include (guest count, theme, budget)
  • As they walk the show floor, they will scan your unique QR code in your booth (created by the app and printed by show management) and upon scanning, they exchange information with you. They don't just get your company information, YOU GET THEIRS, TOO, INSTANTLY!
  • Once an attendee scans your unique QR code in your booth, you will be able to see which types of vendors a couple has not booked so you can reach out to your hot leads immediately following the show without having to wait for the Bride Lead List!
  • BRIDESCAN also allows couples to see your profile with contact information, services offered, open dates, website and social media links, and much more.

GETTING SET UP

  1. If you signed up for BrideScan on your contract, no action is required. If you haven't, send us an email that says "Sign me up for BrideScan" and we'll take care of the rest.
  2. We will create your in-app profile for you with your basic business contact information. This step requires no action on your part.
  3. About a week before the show, you will receive an automated email from BrideScan with a link to change your password. Now you can update your profile with company info, products, services, pricing, etc. (the stuff brides will see after they swap info with you when they scan your QR Code).
  4. Pick up your QR Code signage and lanyards (your app suite inclusions) on set-up day and display them in your booth. Brides will scan your QR Code as they walk by your booth and automatically give you her info and receive your info SIMULTANEOUSLY. After the show, you'll log in to your BrideScan profile and see the contact information of the brides who scanned you. These are your hot leads! Contact them immediately!

Represent BRIDESCAN in Your Booth

  1. Wear your BrideScan lanyards with your QR Code at all times during the show. This way you do not have to breakaway from conversation to let the bride scan your code.
  2. Display your framed QR code in a highly visible place in your booth.

FOR BEST RESULTS:

  1. BRIDESCAN is not meant to replace the face-to-face interaction that wedding shows offer. Your ultimate goal is to book contracts and set up consultations! BRIDESCAN is an additional way to capture leads at the show, but is not meant to be the ONLY way.
  2. It is not a competition to see which vendor gets the most scans; your goal should be to capture as many brides who would be a great fit for your company's brand and personality. Think quality, not quantity!
  3. Follow up with the qualified leads who scanned you BEFORE the master lead list is sent out. We recommend sending a more personal email to the brides who scanned you since you more than likely spent more time with them than other couples.
  4. Do not be afraid to initiate a scan. If you can tell that a couple is interested in your services, but does not want to commit to booking on the spot or setting up a consultation, say something like“I can see that you are interested but not ready to commit to booking or setting up a consultation, would you be willing to let me contact you later next week?"
