Weddings are full of odd traditions, such as throwing uncooked rice at the newlyweds and watching people kiss in public. Prepare for a celebration of quirkiness with this Groupon.
- $15 for general admission to The 3rd Athens NotWedding, which includes dinner Ferrari sparkling wine, and a swag bag ($30 value)
At 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 21, The Classic Center hosts The 3rd Athens 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 reception 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 reception, a cocktail-style dinner, and dance party reception. They spend the reception jotting down the names of the bakers who created the delectable wedding cake, the chefs who sizzled up the light bites, and the rental centers that provided the elegant table settings.
