The Cream Event: #DanceForFrance Recap

 #DanceForFrance was officially a success! Congratulations to our winner,  Michael and his fiance, Dina, who won a 7-night honeymoon in Paris! Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 9.27.05 AM This year’s Cream Event in LA was one for the record books. Between the unbelievable band and DJ to the mouth-watering food that was served, this event will have people (especially us) talking for months. Each and every vendor  that participated was incredibly unique and brought something special to the table. Our favorite part had to have been #DanceForFrance, a dance off hosted by yours truly where the grand prize was a trip to Paris. After many impressive dance moves from a number of talented contestants, the winner was finally chosen. Congratulations to Michael, the winner of this year’s dance-off, and his fiance, Dina! We were thoroughly impressed with the amount of flips and cartwheels that Michael pulled off, and could not be happier for these two lovebirds. Enjoy the beauty and romance of breathtaking Paris!

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.

#BeachLife: Win a Hawaiian Honeymoon!

#BeachLife: We love having cool friends (especially ones that help us giveaway a Hawaiian Honeymoon). Enter Now… but also read on, there is some cool stuff in here, too.

We are thrilled to announce a partnership with a start-up we truly admire. Wedding Spot is a brilliant solution to the stress and intimidation of planning a wedding.  They are a tiny but mighty female-owned company and the first ever online site that allows you to search, price out, and compare wedding venues without ever leaving the comfort of your bed.

33d493ec1633cbe67d606fe0f7a2d1be

You can search by category: hotel wedding, vineyard wedding, ranch wedding. That’s nothing new, but Wedding Spot calls every single venue to interview them, enters their information into a database, and offers automatic, instantaneous price quotes to users when they enter in their specific wedding details (think of Kayak, but for weddings).

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 1.41.38 PM

The best thing about this partnership? We’ve teamed up with Wedding Spot to give away a dream Hawaiian honeymoon! Emphasis on dream: You get to stay three nights at the Fairmont Kea Lani, fill your days on Maui with snorkeling, a sunset cruise and a luau. Then, hop on over to the Big Island where you’ll get to stay three nights at the Fairmont Orchid and receive a Flytographer vacation photographer to capture your favorite moments as you soak up the sun!

With a Mai Tai in your hand and the sand between your toes, this is #BeachLife.

#MartiniqueRomantique: The Island Paradise

Win a trip for two to Martinique: The Island Paradise. ENTER NOW!

SliderandSM

It’s officially that time of year: the temperatures drop, Starbucks has cranberry-colored cups, and we’re even seeing snow in some parts of the country (except Los Angeles, you don’t count). So with the inception of “sweater weather,” it’s time to start day-dreaming about those seemingly far-off beach vacations.  Well, we dare you to dream big: it doesn’t get any better than the Caribbean– and this one happens to be très chic. It basically looks like a screen savor, amiright?

Martinique2

This wanderlust-y destination is Martinique, an island in the Eastern Caribbean sea. It is an overseas region of France, and an integral part of the French Republic (so think of Paris on a beach).  We’ve partnered with Atout France to giveaway an incredible Martinique vacation, for two! The prize includes 2 roundtrip tickets courtesy of American Airlines, 4 nights in paradise at the Cap Est Lagoon Resort and Spa (which is a 5-Star resort) dinner for 2 at the  Cap Est’s gastronomic restaurant, Le Belem, and a cooking class with master chef Jean-Charles Bredas at Martinique Gastronomie. We will also have 4 bridal bloggers in Martinique from today (Nov 19) to Nov 22nd, posting their experiences live, which will be streamed on this site and through #MartiniqueRomantique on social media.

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 11.17.59 AM

But don’t worry (didn’t think you were actually worried- this is basically too good to be true) there is way more to do in Martinique than just be lapped in luxury and eat your face off. There is also rum tastings with Habitation Clement, sailing excursions along the Ballades du Delphis, hiking, fishing…and did we mention epic sunbathing? This romantique island is also the perfect honeymoon destination for those who want nothing but pampering and sunshine. Good thing you can register for all these experiences (and more) here.

Martinique3

So, wanderers, make sure you enter now.  The contest ends December 22nd. Think of it as an early Christmas present… your own personal island paradise with the one you love. For free. You’re welcome.
