Have you lovelies heard of The NotWedding? If not, it’s time you have! Complete with dinner and drinks, an emotional ceremony + a dance-party reception, The NotWedding has become a killer alternative to a bridal show. 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, + smell the flowers… while enjoying a night of great food, dancing + 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 + confidence to take their business to the next level. Pretty rad, right?!
