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 were unable to attend The First NotWedding on Cape Cod last month at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel, then be my guest as I highlight the vendors that participated, share a photo and lure you to The NotWedding website to creep the party!
The First NotWedding on Cape Cod was a sold out event with 150+ guests, 30+ vendors and loads of fun! Chris & Peyton Lambton, local Cape Cod celebrities, and Chris’ brother and sister-in-law Meagan and Mark, joined us this year as the NotBridal Party and by the looks of it, they had just as much fun as everyone else!
The event began with a beautiful ceremony in the Sea Crest’s Ocean View room with decor by Designer’s Touch and a newly debuted boardwalk aisle by True North Event rentals.
After the ceremony guests enjoyed a mini-cocktail hour and then processed down the hall to the Nauset Ballroom where the found the space decorated by florists, designers and other fabulous vendors. Sea Crest served an amazing plated dinner and after dinner was served guests got the chance to meet the vendors of The NotWedding in the Tunnel of Love. The dance floor opened hosted by DJ Danny Walsh and the party continued.
The guests left the event saying “This was so much fun! It was the best bridal event I have ever attended!”
If you were unable to attend, be sure to check out the event from start to finish on The NotWedding website.
And not to worry, rumor has it that the event will be back in November 2014 again! Interested vendors can apply online at www.thenotwedding.com/apply
Are you a bride getting married in 2014, 2015, 2016 and want to attend an amazing event where you can get a boat load of inspiration? Then mark your calendars for November 24th and attend the first ever NotWedding on Cape Cod at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth!
While on Pinterest over a year ago, I somehow ended up on The NotWedding’s website and immediately wanted to bring the event to Cape Cod. After conversations with the owner, Callie, attending a NotWedding in Atlanta and many exciting email exchanges, we decided it would be a brilliant idea to bring the event to the Cape! Since then the NotWedding has also expanded to multiple cities around the country like New York, Charlotte, Nashville, Wichita and more!
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.
One of the really exciting things about the Cape Cod event is that we are able to work with an amazing couple, Chris & Peyton Lambton, of HGTV’s “Going Yard” and both from past episodes of the Bachelor and Bachelorette. Chris & Peyton 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.
