Real Maine Weddings to award one couple with a wedding package worth more than $100,000
FREEPORT – On what is arguably the most romantic day of the year, couples will mark the day with gifts, signs of affection, and in some cases – marriage proposals. For those couples who do propose – or who are already engaged - Valentine’s Day also marks the “one-month to go” benchmark for them to register for a free Maine wedding, valued at more than $100,000.
“Valentine’s Day conjures up images of dream-scenarios for couples,” said Melanie Brooks of Real Maine Weddings magazine, the publication that is putting on the contest. “This is an opportunity for couples to imagine their dream wedding, and possibly pull it off free of charge. This contest opens countless doors for the winning bride and groom to have an amazing destination wedding in Freeport, Maine, complete with all of the extras that will make the day special and unforgettable.”
Real Maine Weddings magazine – a twice-annually published Maine-focused wedding publication – is conducting the contest, which kicked off last month. Couples are invited to submit a video that is 2-minutes or less to The video should say why the couple deserves a dream wedding in Freeport, USA. Couples can also enter the contest in person at the Maine Wedding Association’s Maine Bridal Show on March 13 in Auburn.
Entries will be posted online and the public is encouraged to vote for their favorites. Three finalists will be chosen, and the ultimate winner will be determined in early April at the Harraseeket Inn.
Once a winner is chosen, people will be able to vote on various aspects to be included in the wedding, such as the wedding dress, entertainment, flowers, rings, and food.
The winning couple’s wedding will take place in October of this year, with the reception to be held at Freeport’s Harraseeket Inn.
Entries and votes for couples’ videos are being accepted on the Real Maine Weddings website from now through March 14. The winning couple will be announced at the Maine Wedding Association Bridal Expo on April 3 at the Harraseeket Inn, Freeport.
