Did Coronavirus Cancel Your Wedding? You Can Win $5K For A Honeymoon
The coronavirus pandemic have changed a lot of people’s plans. But for some people out there, they’ve lost the chance for that special day where they say “I do” to their significant other. One company is trying to help by throwing a virtual wedding and providing lucky couples with $5,000 towards a honeymoon.
The Chaplain Obvious sweepstakes by Hotels.com is currently accepting entries until May 17, 2020. The sweepstakes is open to legal residents of the United States 18 years or older. The company will select up to four couples to have a virtual wedding with the website mascot, Captain Obvious, as well as money for their honeymoon. Captain Obvious got ordained so that he can carry out the virtual wedding for you and your fiancé.
You can enter by filling out the form at the Hotel.com sweepstakes page. As a reminder, entries close on May 17 at 5pm Central Time, USA. Keep in mind, you are required to have a marriage certificate from your state. Your state must also allow virtual weddings. You can see the full list of rules on the Hotels.com website.
Hotel.com will evaluate the entrants based on originality, creativity, and passion. On May 20, they will announce the winners, and weddings are scheduled to take place in June.
Of course, the $5,000 is for use through Hotels.com. Travel may not be possible for sometime, but the rules don’t list an expiration for the prize.
That amount of money can take you far for a honeymoon. Imagine a nice all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean or use it for flights to a faraway destination. We went to Puerto Vallarta for our honeymoon, and I wouldn’t have complained at all to have won $5,000 to spend!
Now through May 17, you can enter to win a virtual wedding and $5,000 for a honeymoon through Hotels.com. Of course, this is a marketing move by the company. But it’s a pretty nice chance for up to four people whose weddings were impacted by coronavirus to get married. And then better yet, they get money to go toward their honeymoon when this is all over.
