I had the opportunity to participate in The NotWedding event a few months ago, (NotWedding is now The Big Fake Wedding). It’s an alternative to the traditional bridal show. Their NYC shows are held in Brooklyn two times a year. The one I participated in was at The Green Building, 452 Union Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231. The vendors work together to create a bridal show like no other. Many bridal shows feel like a cattle call. Couples feel so overwhelmed by all of the vendors trying to get their attention. With this show it was more about appreciating the event that the vendors created. Your felt like you were at a friend’s wedding. There were three of each vendor instead of 7 or 8 bands and 8 or 9 florist. It allowed for a more meaningful experience for all who attended. Check out the images below and credits at the bottom to see the vendors who participated.
