Couples can celebrate a love that comes once in a lifetime on a date that occurs only once every hundred years when ILG’s Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts host 11 weddings for 11 pairs of lovebirds on 11.11.11.
Crowne Plaza invites all couples who are preparing to pledge their devotion or renew their vows to enter the “Marry Me 11.11.11” giveaway. The winners will enjoy a three-day getaway to New York City and a ceremony with a celebrity touch, as VH1’s Tough Love star and matchmaker Steve Ward will preside over the numerically-blessed nuptials.
To enter, couples compose a post on Facebook.com/crowneplaza explaining the reasons why they are lucky in love. Friends can increase a couple’s chances of saying “I do” in the Big Apple by voting on entries. (Even those not lucky enough to win the giveaway can still feel like winners by getting up to $1,250 back when they book the Honeymoon on Us promotion at any one of almost 200 Crowne Plaza hotels across America and Canada by the end of 2011.)
The giveaway’s winning grooms and brides will be flown to New York City, where they will see the sites in a pre-wedding tour before tying the knot at 11 a.m. ET in a non-denominational ceremony held at the Crowne Plaza Times Square-Manhattan.
A romantic reception follows, with the newly-dubbed Mr.’s and Mrs.’s dancing to tunes spun by Atlanta’s celebrity DJ, Mike B of B2 Entertainment. As a marital memento, couples also receive a personalized wedding video from WedIt as well as digital photos of the big day.
“I cannot wait to meet the 11 couples and celebrate each and every love story,” said Steve Ward, officiant for the “Crowne Plaza Marry Me 11.11.11” ceremony and star of VH1’s Tough Love. “As a matchmaker, I’ve made it my everyday mission to help people come together and nothing is more fulfilling than to witness a couple commit to each other for the rest of their lives.”
