Oh my bride! Now this is next level, if we do say so ourselves… BRIDES Live Wedding is back and we're ready to give one lucky couple the chance to win the destination wedding of their dreams. No, you haven't fallen asleep crunching the numbers for your wedding budget—this is real life, y'all. So listen up! Here's what you need to know to win the big day of your dreams.
Your wedding date? June 2, 2017.
The venue? The magical Montage Laguna Beach—a romantic resort set on a stunning coastal bluff high above the Pacific with sprawling ocean views, a 20,000-square-foot spa, gourmet dining, and oceanfront "I do" locales.
Oh, yeah. It's insane.
But before you print out those wedding invites, you gotta win first! Here's the deal: Fill out the entry form here by February 20, 2017, and be sure to include photos and a video telling the love story of you and your sweetie. Go ahead. We'll wait.
Done? Now it's up to our readers! BRIDES fans will vote on their favorite couple, so spread the word to your family and friends! They can vote daily to help you win this dreamy destination wedding.
Now back to these nuptials… Did we mention you get a celeb-approved wedding planner, too? Specializing in destination weddings and full service planning, Brooke Keegan is known for producing original, innovative, and uniquely detailed events at resorts, chateaux, private estates, and destinations around the world. But Keegan won't be the only one planning your big day deets. We're inviting the BRIDES audience to chime in along your road to the altar and vote on everything from the bridal party frocks to the decor. And yes, even your wedding dress!
But while giving up some of the bridal control can be, ehh, scary, it's been done before—with some seriously gorgeously results. Trust.
Last year, beauty vlogger and YouTube star Elle Fowler tied the knot with her fiancé Alex Goot, and BRIDES fans decided every single detail of her beautiful big day at Santa Barbara, California's Bacara Resort & Spa. And 2015's winning couple, Katie Kelly and Sean Swetnam, also said "I do" to handing over the reins to readers, resulting in a stunning Jamaican ceremony.
