Puppy love has transformed into true love for the 10 couples who will take their first step toward tying the knot in the Wedding Capital of the World during a 10/10/10 engagement event hosted by Donny Osmond.
The pre-“I do” duos were chosen from more than 200 couples from across the country who entered for a chance to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime sweet spectacle. The soon-to-be fiances will be flown to Las Vegas via Funjet Vacations for a two-night stay at Caesars Palace, a romantic post-proposal repast hosted by The Palms- Las Vegas restaurant at The Forum Shops, a post-dinner event at PURE Nightclub, wedding gifts supplied by retailers at The Forum Shops and the main, marriage-minded event.
At 10:10 am on October 10, 2010, Donny Osmond (a luminary who, having ed wife Debbie more than three decades ago, has one of the entertainment industries’ longest-lasting marriages) will queue the couples at the start of their trip down the road of life together. The couples will become betrothed at the replica of Rome’s Trevi Fountain in front of The Forum Shops– a spot selected for the love-themed legend which states that if three people throw coins into the fountain with their right hand over their left shoulder, marriage is imminent.
“It’s so cool that on Oct. 10, 2010 at 10:10 a.m., ten couples will get their ten minutes of fame. I know it’s usually supposed to be fifteen minutes but… you know… blame it on the economy,” quips Osmond, who with his sister is currently headlining “Donny & Marie” at the Flamingo Las Vegas, now in its third year.
