Ashland University Catering will host an all-new wedding event, titled the Ashland University Bridal Showcase, on Saturday, Feb. 8, on the beautiful, historic Ashland University campus.

The Ashland University Bridal Showcase is set to become one of the premier wedding events in northeast Ohio as it will be the first of its kind in the mid-Ohio area.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for pre-registered attendees, with the Bridal Showcase kicking off with an opening ceremony at 6 p.m.

“As a leader in the area providing five beautifully decorated reception ballrooms/venues, on-site chapel, overnight accommodations, and nationally recognized and locally loved catering services, the Ashland University Bridal Showcase will be a progressive format that will flow the guests through the night as if they are a guest at their own wedding,” said Carrie Gough, catering service manager at AU. “The planning process can be overwhelming to choose a venue, color palette or vendors without seeing it first hand,” Gough said.

“We will have all the wedding amenities on-site helping to alleviate stress and giving the couples the opportunity to see all their ideas come to fruition.”

According to Gough, the Bridal Showcase is comprised of all the traditional wedding events – the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the reception – where guests will be guided to each location that will be decorated in various colors and décor trends, meet with premier wedding vendors, and experience exclusive wedding attractions.

“There will be a number of interactive opportunities throughout the evening and one lucky couple will be selected to do the ceremonial cake cutting,” she said.

Transportation is complimentary and guests will be chauffeured between each location in style in one of the elite fleet vehicles. For those who wish to take a walking tour of the grounds or transport their own party, convenient parking is available at each location.

“Most men take a hands-off approach in wedding planning,” said Jim Misel, general manager of sales and marketing. “This is their chance to participate in the process and treat their bride-to-be to a pre-Valentine’s date for a relaxing drink and great meal here at the Bridal Showcase.

” Admission to the event is $10 per person, which includes a bridal bag, hors d’eouvres, and a full three- course meal. Cash bar will be available. Pre-registration is highly encouraged as space is limited. “The Ashland University Bridal Showcase is a night to remember for planning the night you’ll never forget,” Gough said.
