England's Prince William Louis and Kate Middleton are engaged to be married. Their April 29th Royal Wedding will be seen worldwide. The WGN Morning News team have decided to give a lucky Chicago engaged couple a chance for their own "Royal Wedding." WGN-TV is now holding a contest to find a couple to win this wedding and a prize package valued at almost $60,000.
The winning couple will get a "Royal Wedding" prize package that includes being married live on the WGN Morning News on WGN-TV on April 28th -- the day before England's Will & Kate become married. With WGNTV.com streaming the morning newscasts online, the winning couple's wedding will also be seen worldwide via the Internet. They will also get a rehearsal dinner for 20 people at Riva, a reception for up to 75 people at Meyers Castle, wedding rings provided by Martin & Martin, wedding invitations by Magnet Street Weddings, a wedding gown from Shelley's Bridal, a tuxedo rental from Formally Modern Tuxedo, a wedding cake from Dinkel's Bakery, a bridal bouquet by Heffernan Morgan, who will also be decorating the reception, hairstyle and make-up for the bride by HIP Salon, music by Becca Kaufman Orchestra, wedding pictures & video by George Street Photography, a teeth whitening package by Arlington Dentistry, and ballroom dance lessons from Hot on 1 Salsa. Their honeymoon will be at one of three destinations courtesy of Apple Vacations: Jamaica, the Riviera Maya in Mexico, or the Riviera Nayarit in Mexico. The complete prize package is valued at approximately $58,000.
