If you're planning on getting married at one of 10 Marriott, Renaissance, or Courtyard hotels in the Boston area, check out this cool contest--you could win a free wedding worth $25,000. All you have to do is create a short video essay describing how you and your fiance met, your proposal story, and what winning this contest would mean to you. Submit your video between now and April 1, 2009—and be sure your wedding is booked at one of the participating hotels by then to be eligible. Check out rules, see the list of participating hotels, and watch last year's winning video at the New England Wedding Giveaway's website.—Kim Forrest, Assistant Editor, Brides Local Magazines
Wedding Wisdom: Even if you're not entering a contest, it might be fun to create a "how we met" video. Whether you show it at your rehearsal dinner or not, it's a nice thing to have for your kids and grandkids!
