How to Plan Your Wedding On a Short Timeline

Baltimore Big Fake Wedding Event

Are you a Baltimore-based bride, newly engaged, kind of over wedding planning already, and free on Wednesday, May 16th? ((Who are we kidding, it’s a Wednesday, not much is on TV, and it’s hump day, of course you’re free!)) Well, what would you say to crashing a wedding with your fiancé, and not getting in trouble for it? The Big Fake Wedding is about to go down in Baltimore. We’re in 🙋🏻, and we hope you’ll come with! That’s Wednesday, May 16th, and we might know where you can scoop up a pair of FREE tickets….

Of course, now that you have that gorgeous piece of bling on that all-important finger, you’re all weddings: all day, all week, all month, I Do, but really, I don’t. It’s nice to be a future wifey, for sure, but how quickly do things get crazy - from the time you’re basking in the glow of that giant rock, and replaying how your partner did the proposing and how you said ‘YES’ to the tedious, anxiety-provoking period of picking a date, choosing a venue, booking vendors, considering your ceremony and vows, building out your bridal party, thinking about your dress, needing guidelines for your guest list, pouring over menu options, figuring out your florals. Where the f did the fun go?!?!!

Before you decide to swear off the wedding in its entirety, remember that you’re in it for love ❤️, and the day will be ah-maze no matter what. That being said, if you could get all of your planning knocked out in one night and be able to get back to your blissed-out, ‘I’m a bride’ bubble, then things might start looking up. The Big Fake Wedding is exactly what it sounds like - a big, fake wedding. One that you are more than welcome to crash, borrow inspiration from for days, and actually even steal some of the v. cool vendors for your own wedding. There will be dancing, drinks, and a pretty sweet vow renewal ceremony as the capstone of it all. Sounds awesome, right?


With a focus on rich colors and ornate detail, this event will balance the vibrant tone of the 1920s with more muted, neutral elements. The couple is chic, but super fun-loving, and already getting psyched celebrate their day and sip on a sophisticated signature cocktail. Conceptualized with a Gatsby style in mind, the wedding will take advantage of saturated gold tones, dainty art deco patterns and textiles, but shy away from anything too glitzy. We can’t evennnn wait to see how it plays out! Their vision board already has us 😍😍😍
