Join The 5K Wedding, 1 lucky couple and an audience of hopeless romantics who will be tuning in from around the world to watch a live wedding online.
Our goal is to attract at least 5,000 people to watch live, each willing to donate $1, so we can raise at least $5K for the lucky couple to spend on their honeymoon.
We will help fund your honeymoon!
We are teaming up with Honeyfund to help fund the chosen couple's honeymoon.
Honeyfund is a honeymoon registry site where contributions to your page become cash in your hand to experience all the world has to offer. You have complete control over where you want to go.
We will be working with you to set up your own page and promoting this page to anyone who tunes in live for your wedding.
Think of this as crowdfunding for your dream honeymoon!
