Early in 2020, Nameless Catering participated in the 2020 Bloomington Bridal show as well as the Indianapolis Perfect Wedding Guide show, showcasing what makes our customers so happy — and why they keep calling us to cater their weddings, corporate events, and birthday parties.

During both events, we saw all kinds of participants — from brides and grooms looking for the vendors that will truly make the most special day of their lives an unforgettable feast to industry professionals looking for partners. As usual, Nameless Catering got more than just smiles from everyone who visited our booths, proving that our product — and service — are truly the best Indiana has to offer.

If you were unable to attend either of these events, don’t fret. Nameless Catering is always taking part in bridal shows.

Over the years, we quickly learned that there’s more to these events than meets the eye, however. We now know that if an event goer isn’t fully prepared, their experience won’t be as remarkable, or even as productive, as they hope.

Below is a list of Nameless Catering’s top tips for anyone wanting to attend a bridal show in the near future.

Ditch The Glam, Dress With Comfort In Mind

You might be tempted to dress up for such a chic (and absolutely fun) event. After all, weddings are what our dreams are made of, full of color, magic, and beauty. Regardless, remember that you will be on your feet for many hours and despite the efficient AC used in these venues, you might get a little uncomfortable if you’re overdressed.

Think comfort before style and you should be alright.

Get Your Wedding Details Down Before Walking Out The Door

While it’s tempting to go to a bridal show before you’re done planning your wedding, knowing the basic details of your party will help you figure out what information you should give vendors and other professionals you will meet.

Do you have a date? How many people will be attending? What kind of venue are you considering?

Answering these and related questions before you get to the bridal show might truly make a difference.

Ask, Ask, Ask — And Take Notes

Don’t be afraid to seem too pushy — vendors know brides, grooms, and wedding planners have a ton of questions and they should be ready for them.

If you have questions about details that aren’t clearly stated in any pamphlet or flyer provided by the vendor, make sure to ask. Even if the details are there, you might not be able to look at any material until you’re done checking out all of the booths, so make sure your questions are answered. While you talk to a vendor, take notes. Otherwise, important details might slip when you’re ready to assess your visit.
