If you’re engaged and dreaming of a destination wedding but haven’t settled on a venue yet, this post is for you! I am SOOO excited to announce that Destify is giving away an epic free destination wedding valued at $30,000 — that’s a lot of zeros, my friend! And you could be the lucky winner. If you want a chance to win, all you have to do is submit a short video explaining why you deserve to win a free destination wedding. Easy right? So go ahead and stop what you’re doing right now because this is not a drill – this is quite literally the opportunity of a lifetime. I guarantee you’ve never seen a destination wedding giveaway quite like this before. Let me lay out exactly what this prize includes.
- Free ceremony and reception package at any Royalton Luxury Resort in Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, St. Lucia, or Antigua. You get to choose the resort and the destination!
- Upgraded wedding extras including a private reception, DJ, photographer, videographer, cake, reception, bouquet, boutonnieres, centerpieces, a dance floor and more!
- Free roundtrip airfare for the winning couple

- 5-night resort accommodations for 20 of the wedding guests! (10 rooms max)
- Private roundtrip shuttles from the airport for the wedding couple and their guests, provided by Nexus Tours

I’m not even qualified to enter this contest (because you know...I’m already married) but I can’t contain my excitement. This is huge!
How To Enter the Contest
Want to put yourself in the running? Just submit a really short video telling the Destify team why you deserve to win a free destination wedding. I personally think you all deserve to win a free destination wedding, which is why I’m not in charge of deciding who wins. Here are some tips though: share how you two met and fell in love, the ever-so-sweet proposal story, what excites you about a destination wedding, and how winning this prize would change your life. Keep it short and sweet – the video has to be under 5 minutes. A panel of judges will choose one grand prize winner out of the 30 most popular submissions. The winner will then be revealed on video and shared on social media.
Here is a timeline with important dates:
Deadline to enter: October 31, 2018, at 11 PM CST
Top 30 Finalists will be revealed: November 29, 2018
Winning couple will be announced: December 2018
Why this is more than just another Free Destination Wedding
You’ve probably seen promotions for the “Free Wedding” packages typically offered at most resorts, but that’s not what this is. Not to knock those free weddings because free is free, but they’re usually pretty basic and come with a lot of restrictions. But what Destify is giving away is pretty amazing and there’s nothing basic about it. Here are all the details of what makes this giveaway so special.
Free Travel & Accommodations
This is a destination wedding giveaway, so the prize wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t include travel. The winning couple will get free roundtrip airfare, 7-night all-inclusive luxury resort stay (more on the resorts below), and a free private airport shuttle– all coordinated by the Destify travel team.
Free Accommodations For Your Guests
The winner’s wedding guests will get a piece of the prize too! If you win, 20 of your guests will get a 5-night resort stay and private airport shuttles– totally free! And don’t forget, these are all-inclusive resorts which means that meals and drinks are included too. That’s a pretty sweet deal if you ask me. So if you’ve been stressing about how some of your close friends and family will be able to afford your destination wedding, this could be the answer to your prayers.
FREE Ceremony, Private Reception, and Tons of Upgrades
If you win the grand prize, you will get a free destination wedding package with tons of upgrades. YOU get to choose your desired bouquet, centerpieces, cake, and decorations without being limited to what a basic “free package” typically includes. And something that’s never including in free destination weddings but that you’ll get if you win this prize is a private reception with a DJ and a dancefloor! The winner will also get a photography and videography package so that they can reminisce about how spectacular their wedding was for years to come.
You Choose the Destination and the Resort
How often do you see a prize where you get to choose from 5 different wedding destinations – each more stunning than the next? Not ever. But if you win this free destination wedding, you will get to decide between Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, St. Lucia or Antigua. I know, tough decisions to be made.
You’ll also get to choose which one of these Royalton Resort’s ‘All-In Luxury‘ properties you want to tie the knot in. What’s cool is the amount of variety among your choices, so you’re guaranteed to find a venue that fits your personal style and needs. Some of the properties are even adults-only if that’s what you prefer – and of course, some are family-friendly, so you can bring the whole gang along.
Free Private Excursion
They could’ve stopped right here, but because Destify wanted this giveaway to be really bad-ass, they partnered with Nexus Tours to include a free private excursion for the entire wedding party.
Bonus for All Couples
The Destify team was feeling really generous if you ask me. Aside from this amazing giveaway, they are also giving ALL couples who book their wedding at a Royalton Luxury Resorts via Destify, a $1,000US Resort Credit for their wedding at any Royalton property (excluding Cuba). Pretty cool right? Terms & Conditions: To take advantage of the credit, the wedding must be booked by October 31st 2018 with a minimum of 45 room nights and can take place in 2018 & 2019. New bookings only. Resort credit can be used only as follow: $500 USD dollars toward food & beverage and $500 USD towards wedding package. No cash refund for unused credit. Not combinable with other credits or promotions.
