Starting July 26, couples from Ontario can enter themselves into the Carlsberg Big Wedding Bash contest online at www.bigweddingbash.ca.

“We wanted to create an integrated campaign designed to not only enhance awareness of Carlsberg as an import brand but more importantly stimulate trial and truly engage and reward our consumers,” said Becky Kwaitkowski, Brand Manager – Carlsberg Canada. “Carlsberg’s talent for providing extraordinary experiences is going to make the Carlsberg Big Wedding Bash an event to remember”.

Carlsberg will give the winning couple an unforgettable Carlsberg-style wedding for 1,000 of their closest friends, family, and wedding crashers. The bash comes complete with an exclusive performance from one of the hottest bands in indie music and is set to be held at the Capitol Theatre in Toronto on October 1, 2010.

Three finalist couples will be selected in August based on a combination of popular vote and various judging criteria including the originality and creativity of the couple’s entry. Finalists garnering the most votes on www.bigweddingbash.ca between August 24 to August 31 through the creative use of social media including Facebook and Twitter will win the Grand Prize which includes the wedding along with Toronto FC tickets complete with his/hers Toronto FC jerseys.
