Inspiration From The Big Fake Wedding Raleigh

The Big Fake Wedding came to Raleigh last fall, and once again, wowed attendees with the presentation of several local wedding vendors “in action.”

The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional vow renewal ceremony, light bites and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides- and grooms-to-be who get to see local wedding professionals re-create a fake wedding for a lucky local couple.

This year’s event was held at a new Triangle venue, Traine, nestled in the historic Seaboard Railroad Station in downtown Raleigh.

Shades of purple and violet with shimmering silver and gold metallic details are carried across the design from florals to table settings to cakes, dresses and jewelry. The Big Fake Wedding is loaded with plenty of inspiration for your own wedding…take a look!
