Free Wedding for a Deserving Military Couple
The Wedding Professionals at 12 Best Square, together with preferred vendors of The Bridal Dish honor our military service members with a FREE wedding for one lucky couple!
The “Red, White, and Something Blue” military wedding contest is an initiative to continue the support and recognition of our military personnel who serve and protect our country. To be eligible the bride or groom has to be active duty military and either currently deployed or deployed within the last five years to Iraq, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Libya, Korea or Japan. The bride and groom must reside in Hampton Roads, be at least 21 years of age, and not already legally married.
Interested couples can learn more about the contest and submit their story from November 1-30, 2012 by going to www.redwhiteandsomethingblue.com. Four finalists will be announced on December 10, 2012. From there the contest will belong to the public. The public will cast votes for their favorite couple and the grand prize winner will be announced on January 7, 2013.
“Working in the wedding industry in this market is a real eye opener to the ever-changing challenges our service members are faced with, said Maya Holihan, owner of Maya Couture, and spokesperson for this initiative. “We are often presented with weddings that are pushed up, postponed, or cancelled because of the call of duty to our country. As the wedding professionals who service these couples, we’re often riding the emotional and financial roller coaster with our military couples. The purpose of this wedding is to remove all that stress for one deserving couple.”
Once the winning couple is announced the public will have seven weeks to get to know the couple and vote on some of the most important aspects of their wedding. The categories include wedding attire, invitations, flowers & décor, the cake, and so much more.
Sponsors of the Red, White, and Something Blue military wedding contest include Maya Couture, Keith Cephus Photography, The Bridal Dish, Char’s Floral Designs, Shockley’s Sweet Shoppe, The Signature at West Neck, Ice Art, Stage Right Lighting Weddings, Astro Entertainment, Changes Hairstyling and Royal Coach Limousine.
