The Big Fake Wedding- Raleigh!

Posted October 26, 2015 by tambarr1 in family and home / 0 Comments


The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional ceremony, a tasty dinner and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides-and-grooms-to-be who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action.

If you have read I Choose Love, then you know how much it bothered me that I did not have a wedding of my own. So when my beautiful friend Tiffany and her oh so hilarious husband Joe, started sharing posts on Facebook about the countdown to their “Big Fake Wedding Day,” my interest was piqued. 

Now admittedly, because they are such a fun couple (look how cute they are), I thought what kind of hoax is this? They’re already married! But as I continued to follow their posts, I figured out that the word fake really did mean fake. Duh, Tamara!  Then I began to think how neat is that, a fake wedding or (for Joe and Tiffany a vow renewal), is such a fabulous idea.  So naturally being me, I needed to know all about this event, like why didn’t I think about this first, and then is The Big Fake Wedding  coming to North Carolina? Because if they come here, I am so going to be there! I began to investigate, and here’s what I found out.

First off, The Big Fake Wedding (formerly known as The NotWedding founded in 2008) [is] a killer alternative to a bridal show. The Big Fake Wedding create[s] an experiential opportunity for wedding vendors to showcase their products and services to shopping brides and grooms just as they would at a real wedding. Now, seven years later in 2015, The Big Fake Wedding is still the most uniquely curated and most far-reaching bridal show alternative in the nation, attracting over 6,000 attendees and 1,000 vendors annually across 31 events in 25 cities.

So guess what?  They are coming to North Carolina–Raleigh to be exact!  And guess who gets to be apart of this lovely production… that’s right, me!  I am super excited about being a part of The Big Fake Wedding Raleigh. I am not sure exactly what I’ll be doing, but I do know that I will be there– up close and personal. I have invited some soon-to-be brides near and dear to me to attend the event, but now I’m inviting you!  This is going to be a once in a lifetime experience for anyone who is getting married, who knows someone who is getting married, or who helps people prepare to get married. None of you want to miss out on being a part of the experience that the Today Show has raved about.
