BRIDES Presents the Third Annual BRIDES Live Wedding®

Beginning Valentine's Day, Engaged Couples Can Enter on Brides.com to Win a Celebrity-Style Wedding Curated by BRIDES and Planned by the Voting Public

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 12, 2015) - Today, Michelle Myers, chief revenue officer of BRIDES, and Keija Minor, editor in chief of BRIDES -- the country's top bridal brand -- announced the launch of the third annual BRIDES Live Wedding,® which will be held at the majestic beachfront oasis, Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa in Jamaica. From Valentine's Day through March 22, engaged couples across the country can enter to win a celebrity-style destination wedding by visiting www.Brides.com. BRIDES editors will curate several looks in categories such as décor, wedding gown, cake, honeymoon, and beauty, and the public can then vote for their favorite, including the couple, on Brides.com.

BRIDES, published by Condé Nast, created this innovative digital program to give couples a chance to win a luxe wedding from the editors of BRIDES and offer people across the country the unique opportunity to help plan a five-star wedding. The winning couple, as selected by the voting public, will participate in an episodic YouTube series chronicling the planning process and culminating in the broadcast of their wedding on Brides.com and BRIDES YouTube channel.

BRIDES has secured sponsors to own exclusive rights to categories of BRIDES Live Wedding. Category sponsors include:

  • Wedding gown from David's Bridal
  • Beauty by Mary Kay
  • Venue and honeymoon by Sandals Resorts

"We are thrilled to take the success of BRIDES Live Wedding to new heights in 2015 as we embark on our first destination wedding," said Michelle Myers. "With the help of our sponsors, this will be an unforgettable experience for the bride, groom and everyone at home voting and watching."

"Jamaica is a stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony and reception," said Keija Minor. "The introduction of the destination wedding will bring a new excitement to the program and we can't wait to see how it all unfolds."
