Couple Gets Advertisers to Pay For Wedding


What do two people working in the marketing and advertising business do when they marry each other? They rent a baseball stadium, negotiate sponsorship deals with 1-800 Flowers, Spirits, Harlem's Grandma's Secrets, Wedding Plaza and Red Carpet, print 8,000 sponsor-branded wedding programs and hold a press conference to promote the whole thing. That's exactly what Long Island radio station sales manager Caroline Fischer and consultant Dave Karpen did for their upcoming wedding at the Brooklyn Cyclones stadium in front of 8,000 people. Now that's how to pay for a wedding!

As an old radio type I kind of like this one. Just think, they got TV, Print, an audience, their friends got to talk about it, the radio talk show guys talked about it every day for two months (or more,) they made money!! As long as you spell the name right!!
