The wedding contest is moving along quite nicely, so we felt is was time for a wee update and roundup about whatâ€™s going on right now and how things are shaping up before the deadline on the 23rd.
Hereâ€™s one stat thatâ€™s catching our eye: 3 countries have entered so far! Of course Canada is one, but there are two couples with entries from the States (Texas and Californa – thatâ€™s making us drool because weâ€™d love to go there) and Ã…land, which is an island between Finland and Swede (also drool-worthy!).
The international flavour is rad, and weâ€™re all for it. Remember, the wedding photography is free but travel expenses must be covered, but we strongly encourage international applicants!
Next on the â€˜weâ€™ve noticedâ€™ list is the couples who have clearly gotten their friends and families to enter. Good on you! The â€œLanger Weddingâ€ jumps out as a couple whoâ€™ve got loads of entries on their behalf. Not a bad strategy.
Having people enter the contest for you (you as in a couple getting married) is brilliant and totally within the rules. If you have 1,000,000,0000 people you know whoâ€™ll Tweet the message and write the comment, go ahead. It increases your chances of winning and – as The â€œLanger Weddingâ€ has displayed – gets more votes into the random draw.
So, weâ€™ve got 3 countries represented, 13 couples and 39 entries so far. Not bad! The final number that is jumping out is the amount of time left until the deadline: The 23rd. We think that the numbers are going to jump quite a bit before the deadline, but weâ€™re encouraging people to get going before the date closes in and get their entries up.
Itâ€™s going to be a great Christmas (or holiday) gift for one lucky couple, so give it a go and try to get your entries in ASAP!
