Knoxville hosts fake wedding

KNOXVILLE, TN – Brides- and grooms-to-be are invited to attend Knoxville’s inaugural The Big Fake Wedding. This bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding takes place on Thursday, June 9, 2016 at 7:00 PM at The Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay Street, in downtown Knoxville.

Wedding guests for this promotional event are brides- and grooms-to-be who will enjoy experiencing local wedding vendors in action. Local married couple Katy and Casey Oliver will use the event to renew their wedding vows. The evening will include a catered cocktail-style dinner and reception and will showcase local wedding vendors. Tickets are $25.

Credited for changing the way future brides and grooms prepare to wed by The TODAY Show, The Big Fake Wedding has proved to be an innovative alternative to a trade-show style wedding expo. While The Big Fake Wedding is in the business of creating fake weddings, they continue to work towards their very real goals of promoting small businesses, inspiring brides and grooms, and encouraging solid marriages.
