  • Anyone who is married can tell you the planning process is not all roses and daisies. It’s making a thousand decisions and still having a dozen left to make. It’s skipping your lunch break so you can meet with the florist. It’s inviting your bridesmaid’s dress shopping and half can actually go. But what if you could continue planning but also have an awesome time with your sweetie? Like a date night but it totally counts as wedding planning. A place to gather real inspiration and see it in action! That is whatThe Big Fake Wedding is! An alternative to your generic wedding show of vendors booths all in a line. It’s a moment to remember why you are doing all this planning, so you can spend the rest of your life with the one person who gets you in every way.

    Après Party had the pleasure of being part of The Big Fake Wedding Minneapolis event in June that took place at JX Event Venue, in Stillwater, MN. All great parties have a theme and the theme for this party was “The Golden Age”. Over a dozen vendors took that theme, interpreted it in their own way, and shared their visions on guest tables. Just like any wedding the evening began with the very real and very emotional vow renewal ceremony.

    Build it and they will come. Also invite them and they will come; at least that’s the case for a wedding. This wedding however was a bit of both.  Après Party and Tent Rental pride themselves on the ability to transform a space, even when that space is a green hill. Yes a hill! How does one hold a wedding ceremony and reception on a hill you ask? Then continue to read we will lay it all out for you!
