The NotWedding

December 9, 2013

Events like The NotWedding, a fun and unique twist on the traditional bridal show, are kind of the best perks about becoming engaged. You can grab your gals, make a weekend out of it, meet amazing and talented vendors (possibly your future wedding team?), see their creative work in person, tell them what you’re looking for, then go home feeling super inspired. Total win, win situation!

Want a little sneak peek at one of their most recent NotWedding’s? Last month was their 1st Cape Cod NotWedding. Just the perfect amount of maritime character, no? Massachusetts couples, you’ll want to take note of the folks involved in this event, listed below. They’re pretty much who you’d want to team up with for your Cape Cod wedding!

Recognize these cuties? They’re reality TV stars, Chris Lambton, runner-up on season six of ABC’s “The Bachelorette”, and Peyton Wright, a contestant on season ten of “The Bachelor”. The couple currently stars in HGTV’s Going Yard and actually used the event to renew their vows.

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.
