Creative heads and wedding vendors came together in 2008 to host a one-of-a-kind, Big Fake Wedding Event. At the event, for the first time, various vendors joined hands to display their skills, products as well as services. Fast forward to today, the event is attended by over 5,000 people every year, with thousands of wedding vendors in attendance, across over 30 events.
At the event, engaged couples get a chance to experience and get to know all potential wedding vendors like boutiques, rentals, wedding florists, wedding registries, DJs, etc., in and around their city, form authentic connections with them, and invest in their services for a beautiful ceremony.
The event focuses on being a source of inspiration, a resource hub for newly engaged couples and their families to find trusted wedding vendors. The event also is a reminder to plan ahead for the events after your big ceremony - a marriage!
All participating wedding vendors will get a chance to tap into a new audience segment, which they otherwise would not have met. They also get an opportunity to find better and newer referral sources and expose their wealth of inspiration to future married couples. It is a win-win for both vendors as well as the couples.
