Weddings are known as your perfect day. The most perfect day you’ll ever have. You want everything to be exactly right. Dress, flowers, guests, food, weather and of course venue/location.
But when it’s so hard to imagine exactly how you want it to look – or how it will look, it’s hard to plan accordingly.
So, a function centre where I used to work had the worries of the bridal party sorted. We used to throw fake weddings. Well actually they are called ‘mock’ weddings.
We'd mock up the function room as though it were someone's actual wedding day.
We'd decorate the tables with flowers and jars and vases.
We'd set the tables, we'd have a cake.
We'd have bows on chairs and all the fancy trimmings.
The guests who would be attending were potential clients (who had paid a small fee to be there) and the bridal party were employees - from the function centre.
The entire event was exactly like a wedding - only it was fake.
