The Business

Wedding Saviours is a membership based Wedding Directory made up of socially grounded businesses looking to make a difference in their community. Together we give away FREE WEDDINGS to couples encountering hardship through interactive contests. In addition to soliciting online votes, couples applying for a wedding, are asked to collect food donations and/or find some simples, inexpensive ways to pay-it-forward in their community. Couples tell us what they’re up to with fun blogs set to inspire the community surrounding them. It’s a win for our members who get a boost from the organic SEO the contests produces, the community wins by the goodwill bestowed, and one very lucky couple wins big when they walk away with a FREE WEDDING!

We currently have a new round of teams gathering across the GTA to head out in the fall of 2015. With past events we have been featured on Global News with Susan Hay’s “Making a Difference” segment, City News, CBC’s Province wide, with a dozen Roger’s community appearances. Although we have married one couple outside the GTA, our goal is to gain the momentum required to grow National and ultimately International. Jane Dayus-Hinch, host of SLICE’s “Wedding SOS”, has stepped forward to endorse Wedding Saviours and is ready to assist in England/Europe once we are ready to go International with our unique concept; we are very excited about this! Jane even ran a Team of her own in 2013 when she was living here.

Wedding Saviours is a for profit Social Enterprise. Our “Pay-it-Forward Wedding Contest” brings goodwill to each community it enters. To date these contests have put more than 40,000+ pounds of food and water in local food-banks and produced 100’s of RAKs (random acts of kindness). We have successfully married 8 couples so far. The value of each wedding prize package varies as it depends on the size of each Team, however in total we have given away over $185,000.00 in prizes to deserving couples across the GTA so far.
