Velas Resorts Launches Wedding Contest

One lucky travel-loving twosome who are ready to tie the knot can celebrate the start of their marriage on Mexico’s Riviera Maya as the winner of Vela Resorts’ just-launched wedding contest.

From October 1 – October 31, 2011, couples from the US, Latin America, Mexico and Canada who are committed to saying “I do” are cordially invited to submit the story of their proposal along with an optional photo of a joyful moment together to Velas Weddings, Xcaret and Xel-Ha Facebook pages. A random drawing on November 1, 2011 will result in 10 finalists, who will be notified the following day. Votes from the public, which will be cast on Facebook between November 2 – 19, 2011 will determine the winner, who will discover on November 20, 2011 that they are the betrothed lovebirds who will fly to Mexico to begin their lives together as husband and wife.
