Join us at The Big Fake Wedding on April 4th!
Updated: May 16, 2019
Like any bride-to-be planning a wedding, we imagine you’ve spent hours combing through Pinterest, researching local vendors, and scanning hundreds of blogs hoping for a bit of inspiration. Even after all of that effort, it can still be difficult to imagine how everything might come together.
Enter The Big Fake Wedding, 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.
Check out the 2019 Charleston Big Fake Wedding. It was so fun and we were honored to dress the bride in not one but TWO gowns.
The Big Fake Wedding isn’t entirely fake, though. The event includes an emotional vow renewal ceremony for a real-life couple chosen by the organizers. You and your fiance (or your mom, maid of honor, bridal party, or fellow engaged gal pals) will be the “wedding guests” alongside other local couples looking to plan their big day in a more creative way.
During the vow renewal, you’ll get to see bridal party attire, bouquets, ceremony decor, and other special elements provided by participating vendors. In fact, we have the honor of dressing the bride for the evening, so you’ll be able to see one of our gorgeous gowns on center stage.
After the ceremony, it’s time to celebrate! Tickets to The Big Fake Wedding include delicious light bites from local caterers, drinks from local beverage vendors, and an epic dance party reception with DJ. This curated group of vendors performs their services just as they would at a real wedding, and you get to reap the benefits - a night of great food, dancing, and real-life inspiration.
At the event, you’ll receive a detailed vendor guide outlining each vendor and their work. See something you love? During the reception, you’ll have a chance to connect with your favorites in the “Tunnel of Love,” a meet-and-greet area where vendors hand out business cards and freebies.
You’ll also leave with a swag bag full of goodies and vendor information so you can start planning your dream wedding! This special evening happens on Thursday, April 4th from 7:00-9:00pm and tickets are just $25.
Will we see you there? Southern Protocol Bridal is proud to dress the bride-to-be in an incredible number by Ivy & Aster along with a stellar Amsale Little White Dress for the reception.
