This might be the best fake wedding you’ve ever been invited to.

The NotWedding is the anti-bridal show—the company essentially throws a fake wedding at which a real married couple renews their vows and vendors come to perform their jobs as they would at a real wedding, allowing the engaged guests to see what the music, cake, food, flowers, drinks, and the whole experience are actually like when executed—not to mention giving them an excuse to go to a great party!

Founded in 2008 by Callie Murray, The NotWedding originally started in Atlanta but has since branched out to hold their events in California, Kansas, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina, New York, and Massachusetts. Attempting to help small businesses gain as much press and as many clients as possible, The NotWedding specializes in not only providing exposure to those in the wedding business but also serves as a means of assurance to engaged brides, allowing them to find vendors for their big day whom they know they can truly trust and work alongside.
