The Deal

At 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 30, The Chicory hosts The 1st New Orleans NotWedding. At this event, wedding vendors create a full mock-wedding, complete with a ceremony, dinner, and dance-party reception, while showcasing their wares.

The Big Fake Wedding

A hush falls over the pews and all heads turn to see the bride step into the light as she glides down the aisle. The groom's face breaks into a huge grin, and guests can't help but smile themselves. For an instant, everyone in the room forgets that this couple is already married, and that no one in the room knows who they are. But, everyone agrees that the ceremony is beautiful. This is The Big Fake Wedding, a mock wedding in which on-trend wedding vendors display their talents to entice those planning their big day. Brides- and grooms-to-be are treated to an entire faux wedding, complete with ceremony, dinner, and dance reception. They spend dinner jotting down the names of the bakers who created the delectable wedding cake, the chefs who sizzled up the artfully plated meals, and the rental centers that provided the elegant table settings. Guests can also glean ideas for modern and hip decorations and wedding-planning advice, including tactful ways to tell their fiancée's father to retire his ruffled periwinkle tuxedo.
