Wedding guests have long turned to Crate and Barrel for maritally-minded merchandise, and now the celebrated retail chain is granting the wish of a dream “I do” for the lucky pair of lovebirds who win the second annual Ultimate Wedding contest.
The winning bride and groom will receive a $100,00 dream wedding complete with the guidance of celebrity wedding planner Yifat Oren, who created nuptials for such notables as Mariska Hargitay and Kevin Costner. Oren will add star style to the winning couple’s walk down the aisle by offering her expertise regarding elements for the soul mate’s special day, from designing invitations, choosing a site for the ceremony, creating a mouth-watering menu for the reception, choosing a wedding band and finding the perfect wedding favors.
One second prize winner will receive a $7,500 Crate and Barrel Shop Card– the winner for the most votes will receive the same prize. One third place winner will get a $2,500 Crate and Barrel Shop Card, and 15 honorable mentions will each get a $1,000 Crate and Barrel Shop Card.
