2019 Dallas Korean Festival Is Offering Free Korean Traditional Wedding to One Married Couple
Did you get married without the wedding ceremony? Or are you planning to get married but don’t have the budget for it?
If that’s the case, you might want to consider entering the 2019 Dallas Korean Festival’s Korean Traditional Wedding Sweepstakes.
As part of the performance program, the 2019 Dallas Korean Festival Committee will be selecting one married couple, either current or future, and provide a free but ‘real and authentic’ Korean traditional wedding ceremony.
This program was first offered during last year’s Korean Festival and was a huge crowd favorite.
A young Korean-American newlywed from Arlington had been living as husband and wife without wedding ceremony.
The Korean Festival Committee became aware of their story and decided to give them a real Korean traditional wedding ceremony at the Festival. Thousands of festival attendees watched the couple tie the knot on the main stage of the Festival.
The ceremony was administered by the Oh-Song Korean Culture Center of Houston. Oh-Song provided everything, from the wardrobes and makeup to the props and personnel needed to carry out the ceremony.
Oh-Song is considered the best Korean-American organization in Texas when it comes to authenticity of carrying out Korean traditional performances.
In order to be selected for this year’s wedding ceremony, you have to submit a statement to the Committee, explaining who you are and the circumstances surrounding why you didn’t or couldn’t have the wedding ceremony. A photo of you and your spouse is also required.
You don’t have to be Korean-American to enter – it is open to everyone and anyone. If you get selected, all you have to do is just show up at the Festival and everything will be provided for you, absolutely free.
The deadline to enter is Tuesday, September 10th 2019. Email your entry to 2019KoreanFestival@gmail.com
