“I don’t think words can express my gratitude for The Big Fake Wedding. I was a newbie in the wedding industry without many contacts, and taking part in such a great event exposed me to so many wonderful vendors and brides.” – Emily Newman, Once Wed
“Through Callie and her team and the exposure they gave to the event, my business was pushed to the forefront of the wedding industry. Undoubtedly, this event single-handedly launched my brand to where it is today. I was so thrilled with every aspect of The Big Fake Wedding. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to boost their business or brand; it will change the trajectory of where you are and make where you’re going even better!” –Amy, amy osaba event.floral.design
“This company [The Big Fake Wedding] is changing the way future brides and grooms prepare to celebrate happily ever after.” – The TODAY Show, Sheinelle Jones
“Our participation in The Big Fake Wedding increased our exposure without a doubt, and we continue to get regular referrals from talented vendors we had the pleasure of working with at the events.” -Kate, Incer Studios
“Our first full year as National Vendor with The Big Fake Wedding has been amazing in so many ways. The support that the team has provided to our company has been invaluable – always available to answer questions, direct us, etc. The vendor guide has been an incredible tool and we’ve used it ahead of each city. Our business has grown with each city and the client & vendor relationships we have made would have never been possible. By far, this was my best move as the owner of an up-and-coming company. As a result of our partnership with The Big Fake Wedding, we have accomplished more than we expected and are excited as we go into our second year with this incredible & creative company.” -Laura, Luxury Concierge Travel
“When The Big Fake Wedding was over I didn’t immediately notice how beneficial it had been, but looking back, it was the springboard my little company needed to become active and viable in the local wedding market!” – Hannah Flores, Madly + Love Blooms
“The Big Fake Wedding is an amazing opportunity to see potential vendors in their element! I really enjoyed seeing the vendors display their talents as it made it way easier to know what you might actually get on your big day. Not to mention, it just felt like we were at a friend’s party! So you could speak to vendors if you wanted to, but it didn’t feel forced or sales-y. Lastly, I love that the event supports local businesses and really catered to a more unique, but trendy aesthetic. I’d highly recommend The Big Fake Wedding to any bride! By far, the best bridal experience out there!” – Samantha, San Diego bride
“Y’all allowed me to be myself and represent who I am as a business and individual. Not once did I feel like I needed to be a big, glamorous corporation. My small,business qualities were accentuated, so that I could meet brides on a personal level and become friends with them first. I’ve been offered opportunities, collaborated with photographers, and brought attention to my business that would have taken me forever to build.” -Sarah, With Love Paper Goods
“I can’t even describe how much fun the Big Fake Wedding was from start to finish. Being lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph the styled shoot in promotion of the Denver event was an absolute honor. I learned so much about myself, met some amazing vendors and built great relationships. Being challenged has made me a better photographer and got me extra motivated for the wedding season ahead. Thank you for having me be a part of such a fun event.” – Shanna M Photography
“We keep coming back to the Big Fake Wedding year after year because it’s consistently (1) a ton of fun, (2) a great chance to connect with some amazing vendors, many of whom have become friends, and (3) a shot in the arm for bookings, never failing to pay for itself many times over! And you couldn’t ask for a better team working to create such amazing environments for all these things to take place!
– Rob Greene, Square 8 Studio

“After doing the event I made the best vendor contacts who have now become friends and we are doing events together. I also got 2 weddings directly from the event! I am a believer!!” -Kim, August Event Design
“Joining The Big Fake Wedding family was the best decision I ever made in my career! The online and publication press I received elevated my presence in the wedding industry almost immediately. One of the biggest gifts it also gave me was the network of vendors I still work with today nearly three years later. The whole experience has always felt like going to summer camp and playing with your friends!” -Sherry, Gertie Mae’s Floral Studio
