Bridal Couple winners to be announced at NTE

22 May 2018 | Events

With fantastic prizes up for grabs and the chance to walk away as the winners of Republikein's Bridal Couple of the Year, the ten finalist couples for this year's event are waiting in anticipation for the final taking place on Saturday, 2 June at the Namibia Tourism Expo (NTE).

Judging by the close to 7 500 SMSes the newspaper received to determine the top 10, the final taking place at the Mopani Hall at the Windhoek Showgrounds at 13:00 promises to deliver great excitement once again.

However, it cost months of preparation to get to where the finalists are now. Each couple that entered had to submit wedding photos as well as the romantic tale of how they met, their wedding day and plans for the future. Following a selection process by judges in the photographic, events planning and beauty professions, 30 semi-finalists where chosen out of the 160 entries received. No easy task!

An even bigger responsibility rested on readers' shoulders, as they determined which couples would be part of the finalists.

These couples will be announced in Republikein's Kollig supplement as well as the newspaper's Facebook page on Thursday.

Finally, on Saturday 2 June, the couples have the chance to introduce themselves to the public and to compete against each other for their share of the prizes.

To see the couples in action and dressed in their wedding attire, visitors to the NTE can keep a lookout for the participating couples on the showgrounds and in the Mopani Hall.

While they don't want to let the cat out of the bag with regards to what can be expected at the final, the organisers are willing to admit that it involves something sweet!
