Pre-Printed Address Labels/Business Cards— Many of the vendors will ask you for contact information and enter you in drawings to win prizes for your wedding day. Filling out your name and phone number over and over can get tiring. Business cards are another option. By using computer printed business cards you can include other information not found on a typical address label such as groom's name and wedding date. Printing the cards on your home computer can save on the cost.

Checkbook —Some vendors offer special show discounts if you book them the day of the show. Keep in mind certain vendors can only handle one wedding per day and their date books fill quickly. For that must-have vendor, be ready to reserve your date!
