COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer is here and wedding season is sweeping the nation. Today, as National Wedding Day is celebrated, White Castle is taking the moment to honor the more than 1,000 couples who have made the Bold Move™ to enter White Castle's national Royal Wedding contest. Engaged couples can submit their entries until July 31 for an opportunity to win a complete wedding in Las Vegas and honeymoon in Belgium.
"We've received entries from Cravers all over the country. Some met, or had their first date, at a White Castle, some traveled hundreds of miles to visit to our restaurants, and some simply loved sharing a delicious slider at home bought at the local grocery store," said, Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle. "This National Wedding Day, we are shining a spotlight on our Cravers and their stories that connect them to not only White Castle, but to each other as well."
Earlier this month White Castle announced its first national wedding contest to give one lucky couple the ultimate Royal Wedding in Las Vegas and a luxurious five-night honeymoon in Belgium, the home of White Castle's deliciously-crafted waffles. More than 75 couples have been married at White Castle restaurants across the nation over the past 10 years, however the contest's winning couple will be the first to tie the knot at the famous White Castle in Las Vegas.
"For all the brides and grooms-to-be, we congratulate you! For all the Bold-to-be, we celebrate you and your commitment to the Crave!"
The Royal Wedding Contest runs until July 31 at 11:59pm ET, with all entries made online at www.whitecastlewedding.com. Submissions must be shared on social media using the hashtag #WhiteCastleWeddingContest to be eligible. A panel of qualified judges at White Castle will select the Grand Prize and First Prize winning couples. Winners will receive an email on or around September 15.
The winning couple and six guests will enjoy roundtrip airfare, ground transportation, three nights' hotel accommodation, White Castle gift cards and more. The wedding experience will include a rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception, cake, flowers, décor, music, and a professional photographer on hand to capture every memorable moment throughout the evening.
The honeymoon includes roundtrip airfare to Brussels, Belgium, plus hotel accommodations for five nights, ground transportation, and a food and travel allowance.
Two more winning couples will receive the First Prize package of having their wedding reception catered by White Castle for them and 200 friends.
