Spanish Elegance: The Big Fake Wedding 2018 Event Recap

The Big Fake Wedding at Hughes Manor showcased romantic Spanish elegance in a stylish, fun and epic soirée! As an alternative to typical bridal fairs, The Big Fake Wedding produces an event strikingly similar to an actual wedding to showcase local wedding vendors and the amazing work they do. This year’s Houston event was coordinated by Alyssa Meeks Events, who also provided floral and event design for a few of the tables, along with several other Houston wedding planners! From an array invitations and calligraphy beckoning guests to the celebration, to a dessert bar overflowing with donuts, cakes and marshmallow creations, this special day was one to remember. Bright colors met layers of texture to create an aesthetic of Spanish elegance throughout the event. Scroll through the images below to see a glimpse into what The Big Fake Wedding has to offer Houston brides, plus keep an eye our our Events page to see when the 2019 event is announced!

From the event organizers: “With a nod to Spanish culture and tradition, this event was equal parts bold and refined. This couple appreciates tradition paired with modern elements and values the company of their family and friends more than over-the-top details. In our planning, we made use of natural textures – stucco, wood, concrete – and mixed these with pattern, but with an editing eye to balance the colorful details of Spanish decor with understated neutrals.”
