Gaylord Hotels’ Memorable Bridesmaid Sweepstakes Promises Laughter and Sentiment for All to Enjoy, Plus a Chance to Win a Free Trip

Gaylord Hotels' Memorable Bridesmaid Dress Sweepstakes

Everyone has a skeleton in their closet. Some are more scandalous than others, but by far, the scariest live in the darkest corners of the boudoirs of millions of women worldwide: the bridesmaid dress. In its ongoing effort to celebrate the most momentous life occasions, Gaylord Hotels has launched a new promotion, the Gaylord Hotels’ Memorable Bridesmaid Dress sweepstakes, which is designed to pay tribute to the sentimental honor known as being a bridesmaid.

From now through June 30, 2010, women are encouraged to visit and post photos of their most memorable bridesmaid dress, and if the image alone doesn’t tell the story, an accompanying tale about what made it so.

“Over the years, more and more couples have been choosing Gaylord Hotels as the place to celebrate their wedding memories, – old or new – especially now with our special Unforgettable Anniversary offer. So we get to hear a lot about those memories, and the best stories by far have to do with the wedding party,” said Amy Atkinson, vice president of leisure marketing and PR for Gaylord Hotels. “Talk to any woman who’s been a bridesmaid, and her first comment is always about the dress. Whether good or bad, wild or wacky, the common denominator in all the stories is the fact that it is an honor to be included as an attendant for the bride, and that’s what we’re celebrating with this promotion. Plus, we saw it as a great opportunity for women to actually get additional use out of the dresses!”

The winning entry, which will be randomly chosen, will be awarded a Grand Prize trip for two to one of the four Gaylord Hotels, located in or near some of the country’s most desirable destinations, including Washington, D.C., Orlando, Nashville and Grapevine, Texas. The Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tenn. is currently closed and under repair due to Nashville’s recent flooding. Re-opening date TBD. The prize includes atrium garden room accommodations for two nights, daily breakfast buffet, one spa treatment per person at Relâche Spa and roundtrip air transportation if the winner lives further than 150 miles from their chosen destination.* For more information, log on to
