    The Big Fake Wedding: An alternative to a bridal show in the form of a big, fake wedding

    CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Brides- and grooms-to-be in and around the city of Cincinnati are invited to attend The Big Fake Wedding Cincy.

    The event will be held on February 21 at 6:30 p.m. at The Transept. The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding. “Wedding guests” are brides- and grooms-to-be who enjoy an emotional vow renewal ceremony, a tasty cocktail-style dinner, and a dance-party reception while truly experiencing the wedding vendors in action.

    Credited for “changing the way future brides and grooms prepare to celebrate happily ever after” by the Today Show, The Big Fake Wedding has proved to be an innovative alternative to a trade-show style wedding expo. Local married couple Lauren and Michael, will use the event to renew their wedding vows. Those attending will experience a perfectly planned “wedding” and have the opportunity to meet the vendors behind the scene.

    The evening will include an emotional “wedding” ceremony encouraging strong marriages, a delectable catered cocktail-style dinner, and a reception full of beverages, dancing and dessert.

    The event will showcase local wedding vendors such as Chelsey & Jordan Photography, Happy Chicks Bakery and Tully Floral Design.

    While The Big Fake Wedding is in the business of creating fake weddings, they continue to work towards their very real goals of promoting small businesses, inspiring brides and grooms, and encouraging solid marriages.

    Tickets for this event are $25.00 and can be purchased online on The Big Fake Wedding’s Event Page. They include a cocktail-style dinner, signature drink, dancing and a swag bag. Get 50% off tickets when you use the code ‘cincyrefined’.

    Media is invited to attend and may contact Jennifer for first come-first serve complimentary media tickets.
