JUNE IS "MIAMI ROMANCE MONTH": Love is in the air, as the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau and The Knot embark on the city's first ever "Miami Romance Month." The year-long initiative with The Knot-the No. 1 wedding brand, reaching eight out of ten U.S. brides-seeks to celebrate and promote Greater Miami and The Beaches as the ideal destination for destination weddings, commitment ceremonies, wedding shopping trips, bachelor/ette parties, proposals and honey/babymoons.
Miami Romance Month will begin with a month of special activities celebrating Miami and its wealth of wedding vendors, romantic restaurants and ceremony/reception venues-topping off with a "Marry Me in Miami" contest as the icing on the cake.
Starting May 10th, contestants will be able to enter by logging on to http://miami.weddings.com and clicking for information about the Marry Me in Miami contest. In June, five finalist couples will be randomly selected to come to Miami on June 22, 2011 to compete for the grand prize in a "Wedding Day Challenge" obstacle course that will take place on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables-a wedding shopper's paradise. The winner of that challenge will receive a Miami wedding or commitment ceremony valued at nearly $150,000, which will take place at the luxurious Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. The Biltmore offers a variety of extravagant ballrooms-complete with stunning views from terraces and balconies-and is a full-service resort with a wealth of unique actives for the wedding party and guests.
