The Big Fake Wedding Event

Last month I was asked to participate in the Los Angeles Big Fake Wedding event held at The Garage venue, in Burbank.  This was the first 'bridal show' I had ever done, so didn't quite know what to expect.  But it ended up being an awesome experience of meeting local vendors and couples, and getting to see some amazing creativity in work!

If you're not familiar with the Big Fake Wedding, it is a fresh take on a traditional bridal show.  We know couples looking to build their vendor team have a lot of choices and at the Big Fake Wedding you get to see potential vendors in action.  The LA event showcased photographers, videographers, florists, DJ, catering, bar service, calligraphy, invitations, dresses, beauty, and of course, ME!  We even had dance instructors that put on an amazing show!  If you missed this one, definitely check out when the next event is happening!
