Contest to offer $14,000 bridal package to celebrate the ‘Running of the Brides’Written by Brittany Craig | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Toledo Free Press Star will give away a special bridal prize package worth more than $14,000.
The package coincides with Filene’s Basement Running of the Brides in Cleveland on Aug. 27. The daylong sale offers brides designer gowns, some worth thousands of dollars, at a fraction of the cost.
“Given the economy, this is a great deal to get a designer dress for free,” said Brittany Craig, wedding designer and coordinator for Crowning Celebrations. “It’s a good bonding trip for a bride and her bridal party.”
One winner will receive a stay at the Cleveland Marriot East, across from Filene’s Basement, and a gift certificate to purchase a dress at the Running of the Brides. The winner will also receive breakfast for two at the River City Grille in Cleveland.
In addition, the winner will receive free bridal makeup and hair from David Broadway Salon & Spa; a free bridal bouquet from Bumble Floral & Gifts; free bridal consultations from Crowning Celebrations; a free engagement photo session with Decisive Moment Photojournalism; a complimentary $200 cake from Cherry Lane Cakes; and chair covers from Meredith Party Rentals.
The Blarney Bullpen will offer a complimentary location for the Bride’s Choice of a rehearsal dinner, couple’s shower, day-after brunch and present opening or a reception based on the wedding party size.
The winner will also receive a “Wedding Gamesake,” a personalized game that friends and family create for the bride and groom to play.
“These are little luxuries that a bride may skimp on to save money. This package allows the bride to feel pampered and have the wedding day of her dreams,” Craig said.
