WeddingWire Offers a Free Dream Wedding in the City of Brotherly Love


WeddingWire and My 106.1 FM present “My Wedding in a Week” in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA, PA – September 9, 2009 – WeddingWire, the nation’s leading wedding technology company, announced the return of “My Wedding in a Week” with MY 106.1 FM in Philadelphia. For the second year in a row, WeddingWire, along with their team of wedding professionals, will be giving away a free dream wedding to one very lucky couple. The only catch: the couple has one week to plan everything beginning to end.

Philadelphia-area engaged couples have the opportunity to register to win the wedding of their dreams. The radio audience can help by voting online at to select the winning couple. Once selected on October 5th, the couple only has seven days to plan and execute their dream. Listeners are encouraged to follow the bride and groom’s progress during the week of October 12th as they choose various pieces of the wedding design.

“It’s amazing what lengths engaged couples will go to in order to plan their wedding, and this contest is the perfect example,” says Megan Hermeling, Marketing Manager for WeddingWire. “However, with the current state of the economy, many couples’ wedding plans have been downsized or even canceled, out of necessity. WeddingWire is thrilled to be in a position to give a deserving couple this incredible gift. There is a reason why Philadelphia is the city of brotherly love!”

With the help of Philadelphia-based bridal consultant, Mark Kingsdorf of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants, WeddingWire has compiled a very talented and generous group of wedding professionals to provide the couple with anything and everything they would need to make this day possible. Local vendors from the Philadelphia area have agreed to participate, offering their services ranging from a wedding dress and a wedding cake to the entertainment and catering.

The “My Wedding in a Week” timeline is as follows:
• September 3rd to September 24th – Contest Registration
• September 25th – Finalists are chosen
• September 25th to October 2nd – Voting period
• October 5th – Winners announced
• October 9th to 16th – Wedding Week
• October 16th – Wedding Day

The happy couple will say “I Do” on Friday, October 16th along with one hundred of their closest friends and family invited to witness the special day. For more information about My Wedding in a Week in Philadelphia, including contest rules and entry, please visit
