The Big Fake Wedding (formally known as The Not Wedding) is definitely a true pioneer to alternative bridal expositions! The Big Fake Wedding experience includes a tear-jerking ceremony, an awesome possum reception with food, dancing, and live music! This bridal show softly reminds us of what true love actually looks like by spotlighting a married couple (Stephanie + Ryan) to renew their vows for the sentimental ceremony. But the sole purpose is to promote local talent  in the city to show engaged couples what bridal vendors have to offer! A night at the Big Fake Wedding plays out like this, you find a seat to view the ceremony, after the ceremony is concluded you can enjoy an appetizing meal, party + make new friends, and once you’re all danced out you can take a stroll down the “Tunnel of Love” to see all the creative talent behind the whole night! It’s like attending your best friends wedding and then getting all the details on how she put it together!

We had a such a lovely experience at The Big Fake Wedding, meeting brides-to-be, and all the amazing Philly vendors who joined forces to create a magical night to remember! You can see how it all unfolded right here!
