Yesterday, we had the opportunity as a sponsor of the Green Wedding Giveaway to get a sneak peak at the top entries for this year’s contest. In case you haven’t heard – Clay Hill Farm is giving away a wedding. That’s right – a whole wedding. A wedding that would normally costs more than $40,000. A green wedding on the summer solstice – in prime wedding season. The dress, the cake, the photography, the Presidential Suite (that’s where our hotel comes in)- heck even a honeymoon – it’s all taken care of.
It’s some of the best wedding vendors in Southern Maine coming together to promote their environmental efforts and give one lucky couple who best shows how a commitment to each other and a journey together is like a commitment to being green and the journey of living better. One step, each day, every day.
Well, we are impressed yesterday. There are some creative couples out there! From videos to songs to crafts, the submissions were wonderful. And now in just 1 week, the top 5 will be announced at the 987 The Bay’s Bridal Bonanza on January 11 at the Frank Jones Center in Portsmouth, NH. Rumor has it, they will be announced live on air. The Meadowmere will be there (we have a booth – come say hi!) and we can’t wait.
After that – it’s really up to you. Just like American Idol, the public votes on the winning couple. Talk about real Bride Wars! With a June wedding at stake, we’re thinking Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway will have nothing on these couples (just so long as they keep it clean and green!).
May the green bride win!
