The Big Fake Wedding

I recently had the honor of participating in this year's The Big Fake Wedding at Foxhall Resort. The Big Fake Wedding is an inspirational alternative to the traditional bridal show. Brides-to-be can attend the event to see talented wedding vendors in action the way they would work on a real wedding day. 

This year's theme for The Big Fake Wedding revolved around the romance and color palette of Valentine's Day. But forget about the heart balloons and teddy bears - this theme was a sophisticated take on the one day of the year set aside to celebrate LOVE. The theme featured muted shades of pink to create a whimsical texture - in other words, it was a "refined take on millennial pink". The vendors were challenged to steer clear of roses and pink chiffon and instead to think through ways of unexpected textures, layers and composition with an emphasis on softer textures with contemporary patterns and edgy details. Check out some pictures from the event below and be sure to also check out the feature on 100 Layer Cake and the blog at The Big Fake Wedding!
