We had a great time at The Big Fake Wedding this year and met some awesome local vendors! Here is a rundown of some of our favorite vendors from the event.

Bake Me Off A Piece Of That: Tracy Falda recently went in to business for herself as a full time baker. For The Big Fake Wedding she created delicious treats that coordinated perfectly with the theme. Her table display was crafty and sophisticated; it looked like it came right out of a Pinterest perfect picture. Her brownie rice krispy treat cake pops and banana pudding had our taste buds dancing (see what I did there?).

Bluewater Kings Band: We had a great time dancing along to this band. They provided a fun, high-energy performance and played some of our favorite songs! You can customize your experience by choosing a 3 – 14 piece ensemble to play for your ceremony, reception, cocktail hour or any combination of the three.

I Do Linens: This company provided the table clothes for every vendor table. They were able to provide linens that matched the brand of each company represented. Ours was a beautiful sparkly Royal Purple! The host of The Big Fake Wedding has toured I Do Linens’ warehouse and mentioned she was blown away by the number of options available. The company boasts an “extensive inventory of linens, ranging from fitted estate linens, coordinating napkins, overlays, table runners, custom chair covers, chair ties and caps that are available to rent for your wedding and special event”.

BFWOwlneck Designs: Tom Keating creates beautiful wooden frames to fit photo booth strips. They are a wonderful take away gift for wedding guests. The frames are backed with strong rare-earth magnets so that the memories can be proudly displayed on your loved ones’ refrigerators or cabinets.

Pinstripes: This unique venue offers a rustic dining environment and sophisticated fun. It is located on the Chicago River and has breathtaking views of the skyline that look great in wedding photos! You can utilize their luxurious bowling lanes, bocce courts, and an outdoor fire pit to create a truly memorable wedding celebration. In addition to the beautiful facility, we were impressed by the  friendly and helpful  staff and delicious food.
