Wedding of Your Dreams Contest for Hispanic Brides in SW Florida

The Wedding of Your Dreams or as the event is called in Spanish, "La Boda de tus Sueños" returns this Spring March 2011 to SW Florida!


The tradition began back on Valentine's Day 2010, when a popular TV Show D'Latinos hosted by Mayela Rosales, a well known local TV personality, began inviting Southwest Florida Hispanic brides and grooms to enter a drawing to win a  grand wedding give-away, valued at over $5,000 dollars.

A Nicaraguan bridal couple won the 2010 contest, Martha and José Reyes received a wonderful wedding prize, and enjoyed a fun and emotional afternoon on February 14, 2010.

The tradition continues and improves this year, now gaining strength! This year's bridal contest will take place in the well attended local community event of The Collier County Fair, which also offer party rental space on the fairgrounds for all special events.

This year two winning couples were selected.
The major prize winners were, Judi Rosas and Jose Manuel Rosas, and a runner up couple, Fabiola Elizalde and Hector Sauzedo.

They will both celebrate a wedding ceremony and exchange romantic wedding vows on Sunday afternoon March 27, 2011 at 2:00 pm by the Ferris Wheel inside the Collier County Fairgrounds. This special event including their private wedding reception will be aired Live on La Ley Radio that afternoon, and can also be the following week on D'Latinos Daily TV Show on Azteca America SW Florida, and on their website.

This wedding contest is a production of the D'Latinos Magazine and it's equally named Hispanic television show, owned by Media Vista Group Inc. Their varied, Spanish content TV program can be seen on Comcast channels 231, 80.4 and 611 DirecTV and Dish Network channels 14. Their broad operations include TV Azteca America in SWFL.

Another media sponsor spreading the word is La Ley Radio Station WAFZ 92.1FM and 1490AM. La Ley is one of the radio stations of the Glades Media Group. These media sources reach a large portion and cultural segments of the Latino population, especially targeting the areas of Fort Myers, Naples, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, and even as far as the city of La Belle.

The 2011 "Novios" will receive a complete wedding of their dreams, courtesy of many local Hispanic wedding professionals involved in this project. These are innovative and hard working vendors of the special event industry, who are working hard in this area of SW Florida, and growing in numbers everyday. 

The Event Lady of Florida Weddings and Special Events will be there to officiate the romantic ceremony in Spanish, with some English touches, plus of course keep you posted on the upcoming, exciting wedding celebration outcome!


Make Plans to attend "La Boda de Tus Sueños" on March 27th at 2:00 pm by the Ferris Wheel and meet the bridal winning couples to share and celebrate their joy!
