Complete with a sit-down dinner, a sweet ceremony and a dance-party reception, The NotWedding has become a killer alternative to bridal shows. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the wedding guests – aka you – get to hear the music, taste the cakes and touch the linens, all while enjoying a night of great food and dancing.

You can get an idea of what we’re talking about by checking out our feature right here. The event will leave you wanting your wedding to look just like that. Filled with creativity, lots of fun and great food.

The NotWedding prides themselves in promoting small businesses, inspiring brides, and encouraging solid marriages. If you are in the Atlanta, San Diego, or Los Angeles areas, you won’t have to wait long to party it up! You can check out the specifics and buy tickets ($35) by clicking on this link to RSVP.

Make sure you type Ruffled into the coupon code option at checkout and receive $5 off your ticket. And for all you fabulous vendors out there, The NotWedding is currently accepting applications for future events in a ton of new cities. Follow them on Facebook to be kept in the loop of future event locations.

  • What an amazing idea!! I recently went to a whole bunch of bridal conventions and shows and yes you get the pamphlets and information it’s still hard to visualize in person. If I ever get married I would love to attend one of these to really see what I’m getting!! =)

  • Thanks so much for sharing. We love Ruffled and are so thankful for the ways you have supported us over the years!

  • We’re so excited for The Not Wedding to come to NYC in May! – erica @ tinseltwine . com

  • I always thought an Unbirthday party would be fun, but I think a Not Wedding would be even better. :)

  • Great way to help couples really experience all the details coming together; there’s nothing like going to a wedding (or a Not Wedding) to inspire your own! Also love the pleated sash the bride is wearing, where is it from?

  • Sukey- Bekah from made the sash (and the dress!) She is incredibly talented and just as sweet.
