Needless to say, the coronavirus has impacted nearly every aspect of our lives, causing us to cancel vacations, change our lifestyles, and postpone important events. It’s been a tough wedding season for couples who have had to change the plans for their big day because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Zoom weddings and sidewalk nuptials have replaced in-person ceremonies, and plans for relaxing honeymoons have been put on hold until travel restrictions are lifted. Thankfully, Hotels.com wants to help those engaged couples who have had to cancel or postpone their big day by giving them a virtual ceremony and a honeymoon fund.

From now until May 17, couples can apply to win a virtual ceremony officiated by "Chaplain" Obvious — otherwise known as Captain Obvious from the Hotels.com commercials — and a wedding gift of $5,000 to spend on a future honeymoon. Four lucky couples will get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have this unique, virtual wedding and receive $5,000 to use on future travel from Hotels.com. Hotels.com will select couples based on their submissions, which will be reviewed for their originality, creativity, and passion, so be sure to showcase your unique love story in your application.

To apply, fill out this brief questionnaire to verify your information and eligibility and share why you want “Chaplain” Obvious to marry you. You’ll also select one of four ceremony times happening this June, meaning your wedding day could be less than a month away. Visit the official website to read the terms and conditions.
