Boise’s The Grove Hotel is hosting a wedding sweepstake that will grant 10 couples a free wedding package. The “Grove I Do” Sweepstakes is available to couples who had to postpone their wedding because of the pandemic.
“The pandemic has caused countless couples to alter their wedding plans, which are events that already take a great deal of time and planning,” Grove Hotel General Manager Steve Steading said. “We saw an opportunity to take what’s become a highly unusual and undoubtedly stressful experiment for couples, and turn it into a fun, easy, and affordable celebration.”
The hotel will hold the wedding ceremonies on Aug. 20 and 21. The package includes a two-hour ceremony on the terrace, a wedding photographer, room reservation and seating up to 50 guests.
In exchange for the wedding, The Grove asks couples and guests to bring canned food donations for the Idaho Foodbank.
“The Idaho Foodbank has seen a huge increase in need across the state and they have been working so hard to ensure folks have access to food,” Steading said. “We hope that incorporating actionable support for the Foodbank in with the upcoming weddings will be an all-around positive experience for people, whether they are getting married or getting access to food.”
Couples have until 11:59 p.m. on July 6 to enter the sweepstakes. Submissions require couples to fill out the entry form and submit a video. The entry form and more details on the event are on The Grove Hotel website.
