WED Magazine – organizers of ‘My Big Nigerian Wedding’ Season 1 is proud to announce that voting for the contest starts today Wednesday 2nd October 2013 and ends on Monday 2nd December 2013. Couples who have registered for the contest stand the chance of having their dream wedding sponsored to the tune of N15Million and winning an exotic honeymoon if they garner enough votes to get them to the final stage of the competition and clinch the overall prize.
To vote for any couple of your choice, please visit www.mbnwedding.com and register with your email and mobile phone number. Your log in details can be used anytime you visit the MBNWedding site. You cannot register twice with the same email address and mobile phone number.
The site permits you to vote only once for a couple within the space of 24 hours. To vote again for the same couple, you have to visit the next day. However, you can vote for other couples of your choice within the same period.
To arrive at the first shortlist of 50 couples, 40 couples would be chosen through voting while 10 would be chosen by a select panel of judges who would pick the couples based on their stories and other criteria. These 40 couples would be a compilation of the top 25 votes from the website, 5 from Facebook, 5 from Twitter and 5 from Instagram.
Akin Eso, publisher of WED Magazine notes that the voting process is an open and transparent one which gives all couples a fair chance of being shortlisted. “We have put in place the best technology and processes to ensure the voting process is as transparent as possible. We want every couple to get a fair chance of winning the competition. It is now left to the contestants to get their friends and family to vote for them.”
Speaking on the idea behind the contest, he said that beyond planning a spectacular wedding for the winning couple, WED Magazine has some important values which they stand for.
“Our dream at WED Magazine has always been to help about-to-wed couples ease the stress of planning their wedding achieve their dreams. The ‘My Big Nigerian Wedding’ contest gives us a better platform to realize that. We believe in the values of love, family, togetherness and sustainable marriages and through this contest, are pushing forward that message.”
Voting would be introduced on the competition’s social media platforms later on in the competition so couples, their friends and families are encouraged to join MBNWedding on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. SMS voting would also be introduced later on.
