Not all weddings go as planned, despite the bride and groom’s best intentions.
Maybe the Best Man drops the ring and it rolls down the aisle, finally disappearing beneath a pew or chair.
Maybe the groom’s uncle has one two many cocktails and falls onto the wedding cake.
Maybe all the bridesmaids, in a misguided attempt at mirth, show up in the same gown the bride is wearing.
Maybe a sudden rainstorm drenches everyone before they can find shelter.
You get the idea. Maybe something similar even happened to you.
If so, a Pompano Beach, Florida, resort is offering a chance for an “I Do Redo.”
The Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort and Spa is running a contest for the funniest, silliest — or perhaps most poignant — wedding-day saga, with a grand prize of a 2015 soiree for up to 50 guests, including a choreographed beach ceremony overlooking the Atlantic and a reception with plenty of food and drink (you may want to reconsider inviting that thirsty-clumsy uncle).
Floral design, photography, videography, music, wedding cake, and hair and makeup services will all be provided by area event specialists.
The winning couple will also be treated to a four-night stay at the resort, including some spa services, and two more guest rooms will be reserved for VIP guests for two nights. Additional rooms will be available at a group rate.
Second and third place winners will qualify for two-night stays at the resort.
If you want to try for a wedding do-over, go to the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort Facebook page, and submit your story with photo or video on the “I Do Redo” contest tab. Entries will be accepted through March 29, 2015, and winners will be chosen by the resort’s wedding specialists.
