The chance of having a dream wedding in The Bahamas has American couples bubbling with excitement.
According to Ministry of Tourism officials couples from all 50 states in the United States have entered the ministry’s Dream Wedding Competition for a chance to say “I do” in paradise.
The initiative invites engaged couples in the continental US to enter the competition to win a wedding on an island in The Bahamas. When the competition ends on June 13, 16 couples will be chosen to be wedded on 16 islands, all at 4:00 P.M. on January 16, 2015.
“We have received entries from all 50 US states,” Deputy Director General Ellison “Tommy” Thompson said. “This underscores the interest in this initiative. There is widespread excitement about this.”
Mr. Thompson also revealed that already more than 2,300 couples have entered the competition.
To enter, couples must research various islands of The Bahamas and explain in writing or in a video presentation why they should be chosen to be married in a dream wedding ceremony in The Bahamas. Additionally, they must ask for their wedding to take place on specific islands.
After the June 13 deadline, the public will vote on the entries, and then a panel of judges will determine the winners.
The competition’s most requested islands so far are Nassau, Paradise Island and the Abacos.
