Over at The Big Fake Wedding headquarters, they’ve been developing events left and right and their 2016 calendar has been quite plentiful so far! Although the year has been zooming by, they’ve still got a large handful of events left to showcase much to our delight.

With dinner, drinks, and dancing on the agenda for all of their events, The Big Fake Wedding is a great bridal show alternative offering an emotional vow renewal ceremony and reception to real couples. Attending one of their fun fêtes allows guests who purchase those $25 tickets to see all of the participating vendors in action, from photographers to caterers to videographers. Not to mention, a light dinner is served with delicious white wine, and you walk away with a swag bag of great goodies. You really get the whole shebang!

While these weddings are technically staged, the couples who participate in The Big Fake Wedding are very much real and so are the professional vendors who show up to offer their services. This is such a creative concept that has been ongoing for eight years, and we definitely invite you to check out some of the images below from their recent event in Portland, Oregon and head to their blog for a more in-depth look!
