Why do you think it would be fun to get married on the ice? Getting married on the ice would be fun because it's something unique and memorable that would make us stand out from the 5 family weddings we've attended in the last three years. Also, Alex can't skate. He is like Luis Mendoza from "Mighty Ducks 2," he can't stop until he hits the wall or falls down.
Why should you win this contest? We should win this contest because we're newly grads and are on a tight budget but would still love to have the wedding of our dreams.
