No lame wedding show or boring booths here — Yelp’s Phony Matrimony is an experience not to be missed. We’ll have the whole wedding shebang at the beautiful and brand-new Grand Event Center in Grandview Yard, where you can connect with great local businesses that are helping to make our big (fake) day special.
Bonus: Yelp is also throwing a Phony Wedding Shower and a Phony Rehearsal Dinner! Find those at Yelp.com/events.
This is a wedding for everyone. No matter your age, race, body shape, or sexual orientation (did we leave anything out?) — you will feel at home here.
***HOW TO RSVP?***
So listen: real talk. You have to RSVP. Everybody has to RSVP on their own. No exceptions. It’s a big FREE party, and this is our only rule (other than being 21+). You can RSVP HERE!!!
Important: This event will likely have a waitlist. Don’t RSVP unless you’re 100% sure you can attend. Even though our wedding is fake, the costs are very real.
