The Big Fake Wedding
This is not your typical bridal show!
This is a bridal show alternative complete with a meaningful vow renewal ceremony, light bites, and a dance-party reception.
Yep, we host big, fake weddings to connect brides and grooms to the best local vendors.
At the Big Fake Wedding you’ll get wedding inspiration you can taste and see. Think of it as Pinterest in real life. Unlike your typical bridal show or wedding website, you’ll experience the vendor’s work in an actual wedding setting.
The Big Fake Wedding was the first event of its kind when it was founded in 2008, creating an experiential opportunity for wedding vendors to showcase their products and services to shopping brides and grooms just as they would at a real wedding. Twelve years later in 2020, The Big Fake Wedding is still the most uniquely curated and most far-reaching bridal show alternative in the nation, attracting over 6,000 attendees and 1,000 vendors annually across 30+ events in 25 cities. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the “wedding guests” get to hear the music, taste the cakes, and smell the flowers… while enjoying a night of great food, dancing, and surprises, leaving brides-and-grooms-to-be saying “I want my wedding to be just like that!” For brides and grooms, the event serves as a source of inspiration, a resource in finding trusted wedding vendors and an emotional reminder to plan for what comes after the wedding: a marriage!
