MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica, Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With the holidays around the corner, engagement season is in full swing. Now through the end of the year, newly engaged couples will experience the thrill of engagement, followed by what can feel like the immense weight of planning the biggest event most people will plan in their lifetimes. Today, Sandals® Resorts, the expert in romance and destination weddings, announced its search for the most sought-after love story in North America with the "I Do" at Sandals Video Contest.
The contest will give newly engaged couples or couples looking to renew their vows the chance to win a Sandals Customizable Wedding at one of Sandals' 5-Star resorts. One lucky winning couple will have every detail of their wedding planned without having to lift a finger, along with a 7-day, 6-night Luxury Included® vacation inclusive of airfare, 5-Star Global Gourmet Dining™, unlimited premium liquors and so much more.
"Sandals Resorts was specifically designed for two people in love from the very beginning, and that special foundation allows us to make the wedding planning journey a seamless and enjoyable experience for couples," said Marsha-Ann Brown, Director of Romance at Sandals Resorts. "We are delighted to offer couples the chance to win a Sandals Customizable Wedding in celebration of their unique love connection during the peak of engagement season."
From November 15, 2019 through December 8, 2019, newly engaged couples or couples looking to renew their vows who are eligible to travel and marry within six months can submit a video to contest.sandals.com, sharing their love story and why they deserve a Sandals Customizable Wedding. The public will play a key role in selecting the winning couple and planning every element of their big day. Voting for ten finalists will take place between December 9, 2019 and December 13, 2019. The winner will be announced in early January 2020 and the wedding will take place in the fall.
Once the winning couple is announced, the public will vote on wedding elements such as the Love Nest® Butler Suite the couple will stay in, the David's Bridal gown the bride will wear, the Sandals Customizable Weddings inspiration that will guide the look and feel of the wedding, the wedding décor that will help bring the inspiration to life. The public will also vote on the specialty bar or signature cocktail for the big day, the cake design that will make the couple's day even sweeter, and even the Island Routes tour the couple will experience as one of their first adventures together after the wedding.
