We had the wonderful opportunity to coordinate the FIRST NotWedding LA! It was an amazing process from start to finish and we could not be more pleased with everyone’s hard work and commitment! Thank you to every single vendor who participated this year. We truly could not have done any of this without you!! You went above and beyond our hopes for this first NotWedding in a new city with a new team to inspire new brides – from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!!!
THE NOT WEDDING IS A BRIDAL SHOW ALTERNATIVE IN THE FORM OF A BIG, FAKE WEDDING.
“WEDDING GUESTS” ARE BRIDES-TO-BE WHO ENJOY AN EMOTIONAL CEREMONY, A TASTY DINNER AND A
DANCE-PARTY RECEPTION WHILE TRULY EXPERIENCING THE WEDDING VENDORS IN ACTION!
We started the day out bright and early with our NotWedding Couple, Jenna + Jonathan (remember this fabulous NotWedding Engagement Session??) They brought two of their three adorable girls to be the flower girls and we loved watching the day unfold through their eyes!
We were so inspired this year by shapes, COLORS, and out of the box ideas!
Our dress designer handcrafted this beautiful one-of-a-kind gown inspired by Gwen Stefani’s amazing dip-dyed wedding dress!
Our vendors gave us FUN, FLIRTY, & NEW ideas for tablescapes! X-O Confetti, temporary tattoos, splashes of color mixed with metallics and geometric shapes – our reception was so colorful in just the right ways! Against the crisp, white backdrop of Lot 613 it was the perfect color palette for the space!
The hanging floral and geometric installations were some of our favorites! So creative and original!
During the reception we opened up the Tunnel of Love where brides could meet and mingle with each of the vendors!
Something Turquoise provided fun Wedding-Libs among other wonderful DIY wedding ideas throughout the evening!

Our NotWedding Couple didn’t have a wedding video when they got married 8 years ago,
so this was such a special moment to give them this video!
