One Lucky Missoula Couple Will Score a ‘One Week Wedding’
(UPDATE: Voting for the 2015 finalists has ended!)
Last year, we helped a local couple tie the knot in less than a week. Get ready, because this year it could be YOU!
Phase 1: The Couple
We will choose a couple via our submission photo/essay contest, with a bonus on-air submission weekdays at 12:20pm and 4:20pm. We want to find engaging couples that sound good and tell their story well. Interested couples submit a photo of themselves, along with a brief essay about why they want the dream wedding, or even just how they met or their engagement story. We will feature them on the air and then allow listeners to vote for the couple they think should win.
Monday, October 12th: Submission period for participants begins.
Friday, October 30th: Submission period ends.
Monday, November 2nd: Top finalists announced.
Tuesday, November 3rd: Audience voting for a winner begins.
Watch as last year's winning groom Caddo proposes to his bride, Brittany!

Phase 3: The Event
For best results, we have teamed up with the best wedding planners to coordinate the details. With the One Week Wedding Giveaway, our follow-up will be just as important as the contest. Also, prepare for our audience to be invested in the story, so don't be surprised if we let them join in the celebration for the reception! We will feature the wedding on air and online, either as a live broadcast or a feature including the story of the couple and the wedding with lots of photos and videos. This will be an over-the-top wedding, something people will still talk about years later.
Sunday, November 22: Wedding Day at The Broadway Inn and Conference Center.
Disclaimer: please note that in addition to our standard contest rules, all couples who enter the One Week Wedding contest must be able to be legally married in a week and will be expected to be able to procure a marriage license within the one week time period.
