Free Wedding Challenge

Calling all strong, confident, fabulous women! My vision for 2020 (wink) is to marry females who are willing to embrace radical vulnerability and propose to their male lovers. Starting on Sadie Hawkins Day Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 and running until International Women’s Day on March 8th, 2020, I will be accepting all video submissions of women proposing to their men for a chance to win a free wedding service. (All video entries will receive a tax -free service if booking.)


To Enter: Capture your proposal on video.

Post it on my Facebook Page with your love story:

Post a photo of you and your lover on Instagram; tag me @themarryinglady

(Note to Same-Sex Couples)


Winners Get: Free marriage service (including walkthrough) anywhere in Toronto and GTA* for 2020/2021 where dates are available.*Entries outside of this are welcomed if travel and accommodation are covered.


Selections Judged by The Marrying Lady and her Ceremony Sisters based on:

Creativity, Authenticity, Radical Vulnerability


Why do it? Sadie Hawkins Day has been observed annually on November 13th since 1937. We’ve been asking for gender equality for a long time, but at the same time we cling to our gender privilege where inequality serves us. Men proposing is great, but its also OK to do it another way. Are we willing to be radically vulnerable in all aspects of our lives and give our sweethearts a reprieve from proposal pressures... maybe for a free wedding?
