Good Life Daily: Wedding Cheer

Giving wedding guests donations in their name instead of lame candle favors is all the rage these days, but the Omni Hotel at Independence Park has got those do-good brides topped. They’ve organized a 135-person July wedding package — that is worth more than $50,000 — which will be auctioned off on ebay and the money will benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand.

Okay, so what all those brides-to-be really want to know: Ceremony and reception will be held at the Omni’s recently-renovated Azalea restaurant (shown; includes open bar and filet entrée); the bride gets a custom designed dress from Toi Sweeney; the rehearsal dinner will be at Old City’s Ristorante Panorama (which has a cool library-like feel and killer wine list); hair and makeup are provided by the hotel’s Lux Spa & Fitness; Barsky Diamonds is donating the rings; the cake is from Classic Cake Company; Eli Allen of Majestic Images will be your photographer extraordinaire; tunes will come from Synergetic Sounds & Lighting; and, possibly the best part? An all-inclusive Dreams Tulum resort honeymoon to Mexico.

Bidding starts May 28. Check out for more details — what are you waiting for?!
