A wedding worth $74,000
A WEDDING worth tens of thousands of dollars might well be every girl’s dream but paying for it could be a nightmare.
The latest wedding tourism campaign headed by Waterline on Shingley is giving brides the chance to win a $74,000 wedding in the Whitsundays.
It is also an opportunity for local businesses to get involved.
The competition opens on May 1 and hopes to attract world-wide attention by gaining entries from across the globe.
Campaign organiser Sam Zealand said she hoped the competition would show people the Whitsundays was an all-in-one wedding and honeymoon destination.
She said the wedding would provide almost everything to create the perfect Whitsundays wedding.
"We can’t find you a husband but we will do everything else for you," she said.
All it takes to enter is 74 words explaining your love story why you want to win a wedding in the Whitsundays and an appropriate photo of the couple.
The public will vote for the top 10 who will need to make a video entry.
The winning bride will be announced at the wedding expo at Waterline on Shingley on July 31 and get married in June next year.
Local businesses have already started to get involved in the campaign and have donated everything to make what is being dubbed as a princess wedding including accommodation for 74 guests, the wedding dress, honeymoon, ceremony and reception as well as activities for guests while they are here.
