Picture “Wedding Crashers,” without the crash part. You don’t know the bride or groom and you didn’t bring a gift but you’re totally invited.
Indie Wed and the Ravenswood Event Center are teaming to present a faux wedding as an alternative to the traditional bridal expo, complete with cocktail hour and reception. Engaged couples, mark your calendar for Thursday, Sept. 29, 7:00 – 10:00 p.m., in the center’s Industrial Ballroom, 4011 N. Ravenswood. Tickets are limited and cost $25 per person or $40 per couple.
The reception showcases various independent wedding professionals such as Pollen (flowers), Real Life Weddings (photography) and Paper Stories (invitations). One lucky couple will win a giveaway package worth more than $8,500 in services from participating sponsors. Among the swag: Free rental of the event center, a $3,500 value.
