We receive a number of press releases here at Lazy Bride Central, asking us to spread the word about such things as seafoam maids' dresses, the latest in silk flower arranging and handling doves for ceremony releases. Our strict quality control procedures ensure that we don't waste your precious time with lame blog posts. That's the Lazy Bride promise to you, our dear readers! (OK, OK I confess, there is no department or Lazy Bride Central- it's just little ole me with my laptop, sipping coffee and wearing jammies).
But this release caught my attention and I thought it was worthy of your eyeballs. Hilton Worldwide is sponsoring the I Do Times Two essay contest with a prize of two weddings (one for the winner and one for her BFF) at the stunning The Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort . And it's not a hokey 'double wedding' (no offense to those of you having a double wedding, to whom I can only ask why?) but two weddings, on different days (no Bride Wars here, thankfully, which made a mockery of how wedding planners really work but I digress…).
To enter the contest, any bride-to-be who has a best friend that’s also heading to the altar is invited to visit www.weddingtimestwo.com between January 19 and February 22, and tell Hilton why she and her fellow engaged girlfriend deserve to win a pair of destination wedding packages over the same week at Hilton Waikoloa Village resort. A panel of Hilton Worldwide judges will review all submissions and deem one story the winner, based on key criteria like uniqueness, sincerity, and impact of the relationship between the two brides. The winning entries will be announced around March 2, and the lucky grand prize-winning bride will receive an all-expense paid Hilton Waikoloa Village wedding package for herself and her best bride forever between the dates of January 1, 2011 to March 31, 2011, including complimentary round-trip airfare for both couples to Hawaii’s Big Island, two ocean-view wedding ceremonies, deluxe ocean-view accommodations, and complimentary room-blocks of up to 15 room nights for each wedding party.
A free wedding for you and another for your BFF in a tropical Hawaiian Paradise?! Did I mention FREE?! Pitter patter, best get at 'er girls. Good luck!
