Who’s Getting Hitched?

Saying “I do” is a priceless moment. It’s also a pricey moment.

Most couples don’t have a bottomless budget like Kim and Kanye, so they don’t always get what they want when it comes to wedding planning.

That’s exactly why some of the area’s top wedding vendors have teamed up again for the fourth annual Pensacola Block Party Wedding—which is a contest where couples compete to win a street party wedding, complete with free services from the participating vendors.

This year’s couples are competing for a wedding valued at $50,000. Yes, $50,000. And before you go thinking that’s a crazy number, just ask anyone you know who recently planned a wedding. They’ll likely tell you it’s a pretty accurate ballpark figure for a good wedding. Flowers, photographers, videographers, tux rentals, DJ’s… It all adds up—fast. Weddings are big business, so winning this one is a big deal.

This year’s vendors have gone through all of the submissions and narrowed it down to ten. But the winning couple still needs to be decided and that’s where you come in. Your votes will decide the lucky couple, so read up, pick your favorite duo and go vote.

Also, go ahead and mark your calendars for Friday, Sept. 19—because that’s when the Block Party Wedding will happen and you’re invited. The more the merrier—that’s the point of a block party wedding, after all.

Just a friendly reminder: the voting window isn’t very big, so you better not put it off for too long. Visit to read more on each couple and vote. Voting closes Monday, July 28.
