It is everyone’s wish to hold a dream wedding but this is always a cumbersome task since it involves a lot of costs and stress. Worry not; Capital FM’s The Big Wedding is back for its sixth edition where a lucky couple will have an all-expenses paid wedding courtesy of the Kisementi based radio station.
Early this week, Capital FM teamed up with a number of partners including Events Warehouse, Sheraton Hotel, Rwanda Air and NBS TV among others to offer a dream wedding after a competitive letter writing exercise.
At the unveiling held at Capital FM gardens, organizers called upon all interested listeners to take part in the competition. Capital FM Promotions Coordinator, John Paul Mugwanya said that the Big Wedding is aimed at rewarding lucky listeners. “It’s an annual fully paid wedding for lucky couple; all interested parties will start applying to participate by writing, giving us reasons why they should be considered,” Mugwanya said.
Qualification will be based on the most deserving couples whose stories are catchy revealing their love history and their prospective future plans.
Daniel Irish Kanyerezi, the Programs Director at Capital FM, has said they hope to continue changing lives and cementing marriages through their annual Big Wedding event. “Many couples have failed to hold weddings because they cannot afford to organize one. Others have been left indebted due to expensive wedding functions they have held but we thought there is need to help do it for them. We want many couples realize their dreams of having weddings as a way of showing love to each other.” said Kanyerezi.
The competition will see 100 couples subjected to further tests and the 20 successful couples will qualify to another stage; these will be asked to tell stories of their relations for of a minute on air.
The most moving stories will qualify based on the voting by the listeners and 10 couples will qualify for the next stage and these will be subjected to questions of cookery, clothing, hobbies and family, key milestones and the listeners will vote top 5 couples.
The five finalists will be announced on 3rd September and on Monday 10th September the winner will be announced.
The big wedding will then be held on Friday 14th September, 2018.
