If you don’t already know, The Big Fake Wedding is a delightful bridal show alternative that includes a real vow renewal ceremony, light bites and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides- and grooms-to-be who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action, and it’s a night to remember!

The Big Fake Wedding is the most uniquely curated and far-reaching bridal show alternative in the nation, attracting over 6,000 attendees and 1,000 vendors annually across 31 events in 25 cities. Each event is put on by local vendors to inspire the guests for their own wedding. 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 is a place of inspiration for your big day. This event creates space for you to dream big and hire locally. The Big Fake Wedding is also a fantastic resource in finding trusted wedding vendors and an emotional reminder to plan for what comes after the wedding: a marriage! For participating wedding vendors, the event is a wonderful way to market yourself. It exposes your business to new referral sources, while also exposing you to a wealth of inspiration, resources and confidence to take your business to the next level.
