“We are honored to have such stellar partners helping to make Get Married in Times Square incredibly exciting and the most watched wedding celebration of the year,” said Stacie Francombe, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Get Married Media. “Our winning couple is thrilled to be receiving everything they need for their dream wedding by highly recognized brands.

With nearly 2,000 submissions from across the country, Get Married Media selected Marine Corps reservists Bethany Phillips and Geoffrey Dubie as the winning couple to Get Married in Times Square. Bethany and Geoffrey will receive the following from the contest sponsors, all of which will be posted at various weeks on www.GetMarried.com/times-
square, and open for voting between October 25 and December 20, 2010:
David’s Bridal (www.davidsbridal.com), the nation’s leading bridal retailer with over 300 stores nationwide, is providing Bethany with her dream wedding gown and bridesmaids' dresses. Bethany will meet with a consultant at a David’s Bridal store to help her find the perfect gown—in this case three spectacular gowns—as well as bridal party dresses. Voting starts November 1 (bridal gown) and November 8 (bridesmaid dresses).
Timeless Designs (www.timelessdesigns.com), one of the top leading jewelry manufacturers and a member of the Platinum guild International, is providing Bethany and Geoffrey with platinum wedding bands. The winning couple will select their wedding bands, narrowing down to three each. Voting starts November 15.
Barceló Hotels & Resorts (www.barcelo.com) is providing the winning couple a 7-day/6-night stay in the new, luxury and all-inclusive Barceló Bávaro Palace Deluxe in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The honeymoon package includes a panoramic suite on the Club Premium level, which offers premium drinks, unlimited a la carte restaurant dining, and VIP treatment. In addition, the couple will receive one of three special honeymoon extras—a sunset cruise, romantic beach dinner, or in-suite champagne breakfast. Voting starts November 29.
Waterford Crystal (www.waterford.com), the designer of the sparkling Waterford Crystal Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball, is giving the winning couple their wedding china and crystal. In addition, Waterford is hosting a press event on December 27, 2010, enabling the winning couple to place the final crystal on this year’s monumental ball that will begin its descent at 11:59 p.m., as millions of voices unite to count down the final seconds of the year. Voting starts December 6.
On December 31, 2010, Get Married will capture Bethany and Geoffrey’s wedding preparations and various wedding elements—the walk down the aisle, wedding vows, ring exchange, recessional, and reception. The wedding will be broadcast live for the world, as well as on the large LED screens around Times Square. Immediately following the wedding, Get Married will host a reception for the couple’s friends and family at Hard Rock Cafe New York in Times Square.
