What is The Not Wedding? Quick answer... It’s a super fab, BIG, fake wedding. The ‘wedding guests’ are brides-to-be who experience a terrific wedding while previewing all the vendors in action!Complete with dinner and drinks, an emotional ceremony and a dance-party reception, The NotWedding has become a killer alternative to a bridal show. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the “wedding guests” get to hear the music, taste the cakes, and smell the flowers… while enjoying a night of great food, dancing and surprises, leaving brides-to-be saying “I want my wedding to be just like that!”.
For brides and grooms, the event serves as a source of inspiration, a resource in finding trusted wedding vendors and an emotional reminder to plan for what comes after the wedding: a marriage! For participating wedding vendors, the event exposes their business to new referral sources, while also exposing each vendor to a wealth of inspiration, resources and confidence to take their business to the next level.
This years event took place at Abode Venue in Wichita, KS. Milk + Honey Candles along with many other vendors infused their hard work into a beautiful vision of the perfect fall wedding. Designer and event planner Ashley Moore brought all of these fabulous vendors together to create her inspirational wedding. Check out the beautiful film by Nick Miller Films.
