(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — ‘Young and the Restless’ fans will have an opportunity to make their dreams come true, when they sign up for the most extravagant contest ever: A Las Vegas Wedding of a Lifetime.
The #1 daytime drama partnered up with Las Vegas Convention and Visitor’s Autority and MGM Grand Las Vegas to offer one lucky couple a wedding, vow renewal or commitment ceremony that will be witnessed by “Y&R’s” Christian Jules LeBlanc (‘Michael Baldwin’) and Tracey E. Bregman (‘Lauren Fenmore Baldwin’).
The contest runs from March 9th through April 13, and those interested in participating can log on to Wedding of a Lifetime and submit a photograph and answer a question about their relationship. Twenty-five semi-finalists will then be chosen by a third party judge, contacted on April 17th and announced on the Wedding of a Lifetime website on April 20th. Once selected the semi-finalists will be instructed to film a video response sharing their most romantic moment together.
On May 6th, the semi-finalists will then be narrowed down to four finalists selected by “Y&R”s Daniel Goddard (‘Cane Ashby’) and Christel Khalil (‘Lily Winters’). The videos of the four finalists will be posted on the ‘Y&R’ wedding website where the viewers will help determine the winner by voting for their favorite couple, who will be contacted on May 31st and announced on the Wedding of a Lifetime on June 1st.
