If you were not able to attend the 2nd Cape Cod NotWedding (now called The Big Fake Wedding) last month at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel, then you missed out! Amazing Cape Cod vendors showcased their work on a beautiful day in November to over 100 attendees and all while having fun at the same time!
Jessica & Michael, a Coast Guard couple based at Otis, participated this year as the Big Fake Wedding Couple and used the opportunity to renew their vows in front of their family, their two sons and a whole bunch of strangers! The cast, who also included another couple who stood in as their best man and maid of honor, showed off the stunning gowns and suits from Sposabella Bridal and the Cape Cod Tux and also showed off their fabulous moves on the dance floor that night!
For those of you who do not know about The Big Fake Wedding, it is a bridal show alternative in the form of a big fake wedding. Wedding vendors come together to stage a wedding based off of an inspiration board provided by The Big Fake Wedding and then the attendees, brides, grooms and their entourages, come to check out the vendors in action. They get to taste the food, smell the flowers and dance to the music. What better way to find the vendors for your perfect day!
The event is currently featured on Ruffled, so if you missed out, check out the photos, the video and the list of vendors who participated and pulled off such a fun and special event. You can also view more photos on The Big Fake Wedding’s website here.
And here are some of the photos from the tables we designed for this year's event!
If you are you a bride (or groom!) and getting married on Cape Cod in the next couple of years, read on! The NotWedding is returning to Cape Cod on November 9th at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth.
So what is the NotWedding, one might ask? Well this killer bridal show alternative comes
complete with dinner and drinks, an emotional ceremony and a dance-party reception. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the “wedding guests” get to hear the music, taste the cakes, and smell the flowers… while enjoying a night of great food, dancing and surprises, leaving brides-to-be saying “I want my wedding to be just like that!”
For brides and grooms, the event serves as a source of inspiration, a resource in finding trusted wedding vendors and an emotional reminder to plan for what comes after the wedding: a marriage! For participating wedding vendors, the event exposes their business to new referral sources, while also exposing each vendor to a wealth of inspiration, resources and confidence to take their business to the next level.
The NotWedding originated in Atlanta and came to Cape Cod for the first time last year. Since then, the event has expanded all over the country. There were 25+ events all over the US last year and next year there will be even more! The NotWedding travels to cities like Boston, New York, Charlotte, Nashville, Atlanta, Charleston, Denver and more. So if you can't make it to the Cape Cod event, check it out to see if you can attend in another city!
This year’s NotCouple will be Jessica & Mike - a Coast Guard couple who will be renewing their vows at the Cape Cod event and inspiring couples with their attire, their commitment to a solid marriage and some amazing dance moves.
