Last Saturday marked the seventh year of the Brides to Be Expo, which was again hosted by the Hendricks County Flyer and the Hendricks County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The event ran from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Five Star Catering at Primo West, 2353 E. Hadley Road, Plainfield, and featured more than 30 vendors, making it a “one stop shop” for information on everything needed to make a wedding day special.
Brides that attended the free event were able to visit booths hosted by catering companies, hair salons, venues, photo booths, and more, to get an idea of how they want their wedding to look.
Angie Nauman from The Fountain Square Theatre Building gave brides who stopped by her booth an idea of what their wedding would look like in the historic building.
“We’re an event facility,” she said. “We’re located in downtown Indianapolis, the southeast corner. We are a historic district in the Indianapolis area. We do wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, and we’re just an all-around event facility.”
Nauman said the building, which was built in 1928, has undergone renovations, but the focus was to restore it to its original splendor. By consulting old photos of the building, she said they were able to update the facility, but maintain the historic feel.
She added that the venue, with its hand-painted theatre, is perfect for someone wanting a one-of-a-kind wedding. She said the facility can host both the ceremony and the reception.
“We can accommodate anywhere from groups of 20 up to 350 (people),” Nauman said. “All of our catering is done in-house, with the exception of your wedding cake.”
