Event Highlight: The Big Fake Wedding Savannah

  • March 24, 2015

“He’s leavin’
On that midnight train to Georgia
Said he’s goin’ back to find
A simpler place in time

And I’ll be with him
On that midnight train to Georgia
I’d rather live in his world
Than live without him in mine”

All aboard, The Big Fake Wedding Savannah! We took a midnight train to Georgia, but what we found was far from simple. Between the exquisite decor, luxe details, fabulous cast, and excited guests, our second Savannah event was the picture of glamour. Minus the rainstorm – that wasn’t very glamorous. Take a peek into this dark, romantic, and luxurious night below – enjoy the ride.

Inspiration

Our talented Savannah vendors juxtaposed glam elements against the old-fashioned backdrop of the Georgia State Railroad Museum, and the result was extraordinary. We’ve all seen rustic and we’ve all seen glamorous, but putting them together in this certain situation truly took our breath away.

Event Highlight: The Big Fake Wedding NYC, presented by BRIDES

  • March 17, 2015

To say we love NYC is an understatement. Between our crazy-talented vendor team, romantic venue, and oh-so fun couple, our fourth New York City event was one to be remembered. As a testament to how fabulous it was, The Big Fake Wedding NYC, presented by BRIDES, was even covered by the TODAY Show. Was it real life?! We’re still not sure. See for yourself in this event highlight – enjoy!

Inspiration

Dark, mysterious, and glamorous – The Big Fake Wedding NYC took on a sultry edge thanks to our killer vendor team and the “Smoke and Mirrors” inspiration board they followed. Our NYC vendors accepted the challenge of turning dark beauty and dramatic romance into something soft and appealing to brides. They accomplished this with materials such as crystals, metallics and glitter as well as luxurious textures like marble and silk. What they designed was exquisite, delicate, and took our guests to a mystical new place.
