DestinationWeddings.com 'Engaged' to New NBC Reality TV Series

Leading Wedding Travel Service Provides Honeymoons to "The Real Wedding Crashers" Couples

FRAMINGHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2007 -- DestinationWeddings.com, a premier provider of destination wedding coordination and travel services worldwide, today announced that they have entered into a promotional consideration agreement with NBC's new six-episode reality series, "The Real Wedding Crashers." As part of the agreement, DestinationWeddings.com will provide all-expenses paid exotic honeymoons to the brides and grooms that participate in this new one-hour series premiering Monday, April 23rd (10-11 p.m. ET).

DestinationWeddings.com will launch a co-branded marketing campaign promoting the series that will include posting series tune-in information on the DestinationWeddings.com Website and executing at least two email blasts to DestinationWedding.com's network of trusted friends, partners and customers that will include information about the Series.

"Combine the $72 billion U.S. wedding market, with the box office success of 2005's hit film 'Wedding Crashers' and the executive producing talents of Ashton Kutcher, and it's a formula for a next-gen 'Punk'd' reality TV smash," said Quentin "Bud" Carmichael, president of DestinationWeddings.com. "With the brides and grooms in on the hoax we know it will all be in good fun and they'll have earned the exclusive, complimentary honeymoon we are eager to provide."

As a full service resource for destination wedding coordination and travel services worldwide, DestinationWeddings.com's network of certified wedding travel specialists are trained to make wedding and honeymoon planning for couples simple and stress-free. The company also removes the complexity of global travel for guests, by offering wedding attendees affordable travel packages.

In the six outrageous, one-hour episodes of "The Real Wedding Crashers," wedding couples team up with five "crashers" to create the most memorable wedding weekend their guests will never forget! The crash team consists of five quick-thinking, hilarious improv performers who've made it their mission to infiltrate a wedding, going undercover as wedding staff and guests to save them from run-of-the-mill boredom. The bride and groom are in on the fun as they assist the "crashers" to take on outrageous characters and personalities to pull off some fun and outlandish pranks. Each of the "crashers" will do more than just liven up the party, some pranks will be light-hearted and funny, while others will be emotional and bring the families together. At the end of each episode, viewers will be treated to a huge reveal when the "crashers" admit to their pranks to the wedding couple's guests. "The Real Wedding Crashers" is produced by New Line Television and Katalyst Films with Ashton Kutcher ("Punk'D," "Beauty and the Geek"), Jason Goldberg ("Punk'D," "Beauty and the Geek"), Karey Burke ("Miss Guided"), Rich Meehan ("Big Brother"), Jon Kroll ("The Amazing Race," "Amish in the City") and Jim Rosenthal ("Blade: The Series") serving as executive producers.
