Charleston’s Big Fake Wedding Featured In More Than Lovely

Updated: Oct 25, 2019



The excites keep on coming from this past spring’s Big Fake Wedding!


Check out the latest feature on this fabulous vow renewal event in More Than Lovely complete with all sorts of delightful pinnable options for your wedding Pinterest board.



The renown wedding blog focuses on Charleston wedding vendor, Bloom Bak - a senior class project that blossomed into a business around wasting less with handmade product from leftover wedding day flowers.


What is the Big Fake Wedding again?


Glad you asked! The Big Fake Wedding is, in short, a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding. This unique event is a chance for you to see local wedding vendors in action. Instead of sifting through online reviews or asking for referrals, you get to actually see the floral arrangements, taste the cakes, hear the music, and meet the people who could bring your special day to life.


Back in April, we had the chance to dress our bride Mallie in the gorgeous Emma gown by Ivy & Aster for her vow renewal along with the sweetest Amsale Little White Dress for the reception.
