For the past month over 125 people have participated in Planning the Wedding of Jack and Jillian Girard, the characters from Christmas in Cancun who will be married in my next book Captivated in Cancun. Now that we are in the final week, I thought I’d share with the world their decisions so far and once again congratulate the weekly winners of “Wedding Gifts”.
By an overwhelming majority, the beach was selected over the pool as the site for the two to vow their everlasting love for one another. But I decided that the quad around the pool will be where the reception takes place. Anyone who has ever spent an evening on the beach knows that the ocean breeze kicks in when the sun goes down and can be blustery. Not conducive for a nice meal. Who wants sand in their food? Not me!
Nearly 50 people liked the Goddess Wedding Gown over the other options.
Voting on the colors and bouquet was a lot tighter but blue and coral won out.
Hands down, Naval uniforms beat out tuxedos…but who doesn’t love a man in a uniform?
Sixty percent of those who voted wanted the long blue strapless dresses that faded from dark blue to turquois, matching the colors of the Caribbean Sea.
There’s still time to vote on your choice of Wedding Cake as voting ends Sunday, 27 Sept.
Which means there’s still a chance you could win the Diamond Ring!! Or this week’s “Wedding Gift”.
Every week someone who voted was selected at Random.org to win a “Wedding Gift”. I’d like to congratulate: Alyssa Williams, Sara Miller, Judi Kensok, Alexia Janey Evans and Terry Galloway Trahan.
A huge congratulations!! goes to the following people who will be acknowledged in Captivated in Cancun for assisting with the wedding planning. Each suggested an element for the wedding which eventually won the popular vote.
Decision #1 Beach and Pool – Kenderly Woods & Annette Drolet Mardis
Decision #2 Wedding Dress – Anna Martin Josey and Therese Scacchi Lopez
Decision #3 Flowers and Colors – Therese Scacchi Lopez
Decision #4 Tuxedos/Uniforms – Tracy Kreeger
Decision #5 Bridesmaid Dress – Jamie Clark
Decision #6 Cake – ???TBD this week!
I think this will be a beautiful wedding.
Tell me one thing about YOUR wedding…your dress, bouquet, colors, etc. OR something that happened at the wedding like a funny toast, story, disastrous event.
