Crowne Plaza has a Facebook Marry Me 11-11-11 promotion based on the auspicious numerology of the date November 11, 2011. Crowne Plaza is offering eleven U.S. couples the chance to win a trip to New York City for a wedding or wedding vows renewal at 11am on 11-11-11 in an event hosted by “Tough Love” host and matchmaker Steve Ward. The prize includes rooms for 10 friends (I assume this means 6 hotel rooms total for newlyweds and friends).
I am not familiar with Steve Ward or the show Tough Love, but this looks like a cute promotion with a nice payout for someone who wants to take the time to share your love story. Story length has a 250 word limit so no ‘Pride and Prejudice’ tale.
My glance at the rules indicates 25 finalists will be selected by voters and a phone interview will decide the eleven winning couples.
- Roundtrip airfare to New York City for you and the love of your life
- Upscale accommodations for the winning couples and 10 of their closest friends and family
- Pre-wedding day tour of New York City’s most romantic spots
- Rehearsal cocktail party at the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan
- A dream wedding on 11.11.11 at 11AM, officiated by Steve Ward, host of VH-1′s “Tough Love” and MasterMatchmakers.com, and surrounded by your 10 guests
- Post-wedding celebration reception at the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan
- An assortment of digital photos from the wedding
- Each couple will receive a personalized, edited highlight video of their experience from Wedit
