The Big Fake Wedding Denver 2021 is a bridal show alternative, with an additional way to celebrate your love for your spouse with a fake yet meaningful vow renewal ceremony, light bites, and an almost authentic dance-party reception.
The event is an experimental marketing method to connect local vendors with customers looking for wedding planning services, assistance, and inspiration.
The event dates back to 2008 when such a display of vendor’s skills happened for the first time. Through an almost real vow renewal ceremony, wedding planning guides and vendors got a chance to showcase their wedding planning skills. So, if you are really considering coming down to the event, bring your dancing shoes as you are going to be attending a unique wedding party. Also, bring along a tissue or two, just in case!
The Big Fake Wedding Denver 2021 aims to promote several small businesses, inspire soon-to-be brides and grooms, and encourage solid matrimonial ties. The event platform helps wedding planning guides and vendors showcase their skills in the best way possible, with space for building authentic connections and relationships. The result of the network that is found because of such events is priceless!
In 2008, creative heads and vendors came together to host the first of a kind, Big Fake Wedding Denver event. At the event, for the very first time, many wedding vendors got to display their skills, products, and services. Fast forward to today, the Big Fake Wedding Denver 2021 event will be attended by over 5,000 people and over a thousand vendors across more than 30 events.
Engaged couples at the event also get a chance to experience and get to know their future wedding vendors like florists or local boutiques in their city, form connections with them, and invest in their security deposits.
This event aims to be a source of inspiration, a resource to find trusted and great wedding vendors, and a constant reminder to plan ahead for what comes after the big wedding - a marriage!
The participating wedding vendors get a chance to capture new audiences which they otherwise could not have, find new referral sources, and expose their wealth of inspiration to future husbands and wives. It is a win-win situation for both - engaged couples and the businesses to help them reach a newer level.
