'The Today Show' is Throwing a Wedding at The Plaza
You know how every year The Today Show picks a lucky couple and throws them a wedding? Well, you should they've been doing it for ten years now. And in '09, on the official tenth anniversary of "Today Throws a Wedding," four couples will go through a series of weekly challenges for a chance to win you guessed it a wedding at The Plaza. It's like Bride Wars: The Remix.
The grand Plaza wedding thrown for the couple wins the whole competition goes down on July 15th live on show, and the reception will be broadcast from The Plaza’s Grand Ballroom from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. And, that day, the executive chef of the Plaza will also be unveiling "a new signature drink" and will be showcasing selections from the Ballroom’s 100-mile menu.
Sounds like a pretty kickass deal for the lucky couple, except, you know, that America gets to vote on their rings, the dress, the tux, the attendants’ attire, the cake, and where they're going for the honeymoon. And America has been, er, "misguided" before do we have to remind you of a little American Idol called Taylor Hicks? Oh, right, we do.
