We’ve teamed up with Mr. and Mrs. Smith, who has spent the last decade checking into the world’s most stylish, inspiring and romantic boutique hotels, to offer a 7 night honeymoon in France at this year’s Cream Event in Los Angeles. This includes a $2,000 hotel credit in Paris (which can be used at any of the 65 properties in the Mr. and Mrs. Smith Hotel Collection in France), as well as 7 different Wanderable experiences, like a Flytographer photo shoot, Macaron making class, guided tours of Montmartre and Versailles and foodie excursions! In total, this prize is valued at over $5,000. Merci!

Whether you want a cutting edge hotel in the middle of the mountains or something overlooking the Eiffel Tower, Mr. and Mrs. Smith has got you covered. When it comes to honeymoons, they really do know a thing (or ten). Trust us, they will not disappoint.

If you’re lucky enough to score a ticket to the fabulous Cream Event, our Wanderable team will be judging the dance-off, where you can get in on this incredible prize. You better put your dancing shoes on because we are a couple of harsh judges when it comes to giving something away this epic.

Here is the grand prize break down:
