Every year, Racked dedicates a week in June to all things wedding-related. This year, in celebration of our fourth annual Weddings Week, we're going a little bit further. On June 7, 2014, in New York City, we'll be hosting a free wedding for one lucky couple. Yes, you read that right: We want to give you a wedding—gown, rings(!), tux, hair, make-up, cake, the works.
How to enter: Between now and Sunday, May 4, at 6pm, post a picture of yourself and your significant other to your Instagram with the story of how you met. Make sure to follow @racked, tag us in your post, and include the hashtag #rackedvows. Next week, we'll award our prize to the couple with the cutest, most creative picture and best story.
What exactly will you win? Here's the goods:
· An intimate ceremony and champagne toast for ten on the spectacular rooftop of the King & Grove Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
· A luxe room at King & Grove on June 6 and 7
· $2,000 towards a gown of your choosing from the Nordstrom Wedding Suite
