GRAND BLANC — There is still time to enter the Genesee County Bridal Alliance (GCBA) “Real Life, Real Love” contest for your chance to win $2,500 in GCBA Bucks.
The GCBA is looking for couples to enter their “Real Life, Real Love” contest in conjunction with the Wedding Marketplace set for Sunday, Jan. 27 at Captain’s Club at Woodfield.
“We are asking couples to submit their Love Story for the chance to win $2,500 in GCBA Bucks,” said GCBA President Jessica Brown. “We thought this would be a fun way to interact with real couples planning their weddings.”
Couples hoping to win are asked to submit their love story – including how you met, how you became engaged, the vision for your wedding and what makes your love story your favorite all in 200 words or less. Include a photo and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for story submission is Friday, Jan. 18.
Ten finalists will be chosen by the GCBA board and included in the View Newspaper Group’s annual Wedding Marketplace publication on Thursday, Jan. 24.
