Brides- and grooms-to-be in and around New England attended The Big Fake Wedding New England on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at Willowdale Estate. The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding. “Wedding guests” were brides- and grooms-to-be who enjoyed an emotional vow renewal ceremony, a tasty cocktail-style dinner, and a dance-party reception while truly experiencing the wedding vendors in action.
Credited for “changing the way future brides and grooms prepare to celebrate happily ever after” by The TODAY Show, The Big Fake Wedding has proved to be an innovative alternative to a trade-show style wedding expo.
Local married couple Kristin and Matt Warren used the event to renew their wedding vows. Those who attended experienced a perfectly planned “wedding” and had the opportunity to meet the vendors behind the scenes.
The evening included an emotional “wedding” ceremony encouraging strong marriages, a delectable catered cocktail-style dinner, and a reception full of wine from Hall Napa Valley, dancing and dessert.
The event showcased local wedding vendors such as Callidora Letterpress & Design, Sub Zero Ice Cream & Yogurt and Kelly Golia Event Planning & Design.
While The Big Fake Wedding is in the business of creating fake weddings, they continue to work towards their very real goals of promoting small businesses, inspiring brides and grooms, and encouraging solid marriages.
