Hold onto your hats today, my friends, because I have something major for you! Never before have we given away something this big – a free mini honeymoon vacation in Washington DC at one of the city’s best and most luxurious hotels, Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C. When I started this lil’ DC area wedding planning blog just over two years ago I never thought it would grow to be what it is today! I also just made it through one year of running the blog by myself. So, I wanted to do something to celebrate and to say “thank you” to all the wonderful DC area wedding loving readers who make this blog possible each day. Why not host a fantastic and fabulous giveaway of a mini honeymoon vacation right here in the nation’s capital!? Are you as excited as I am??
Because we live here, sometimes we forget that we are in fact a destination – a place for celebration and a place that people would like to visit! And besides, with all that you are doing to plan your wedding, wouldn’t it be a whole lot easier if you didn’t have to also plan (and pay for!) your honeymoon?? Call me biased, but Washington, DC is a great place for a honeymoon of any size! (Check out our list of mini honeymoon ideas in the Washington DC area.) With that in mind, the incredible Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C. is donating to one lucky couple a free mini honeymoon vacation getaway. If you are looking to vacation in the city we all love, hoping for a weekend get-away with your partner, excited about a pre-wedding rendezvous, or want to win a fabulous mini honeymoon here in Washington DC, all you have to do is enter!
So, stop booking your far-flung travel plans for your honeymoon and put away your passport, your honeymoon plans have been taken care of today! Besides having first-class service, amazing accommodations and delicious restaurants, Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C. is walking distance to just about everything awesome in Washington, DC – the museums, the monuments and, of course, the cherry blossoms. When I first thought about doing a mini-moon giveaway in DC, I immediately thought of Mandarin Oriental. It will always, always, always have a special place in my heart as I honeymooned at Mandarin Oriental on my own honeymoon many years ago. I remember having our travel plans booked and my soon-to-be grandparents-in-law asking where we were staying. We told them and they immediately said, “No, no, you must stay at Mandarin Oriental. We insist!” They were right , it was a fabulous get-away and I still think about it to this day!
On this mini moon in Washington, DC, you’ll win a free two night’s stay in a deluxe room, two luxurious spa treatments, and dinner for two in the deliciously fantastic Sou’wester. Take a breath, because this package is valued at over $1,000!
