This time last year, we’d be heading into Canada’s most popular wedding season, with many Canadians planning to say “I do” or witnessing their loved ones tying the knot. But, like almost everything else this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything, upending many couples’ wedding plans in the process and forcing them to leave their champagne on ice for longer than they had hoped. 

Now that social distancing regulations are beginning to ease and groups of 50+ are allowed to gather for weddings across Canada, couples who have had to alter, postpone or cancel their weddings are looking to reimagine their champagne moment, even if it’s a little different than originally planned. That’s why, in the lead up to wedding season, Miller High Life’s “Backyard Weddings” contest is offering three Canadian couples the chance to win up to $10,000 to take their wedding from different to desirable, as well as one-on-one consultations with a professional event planner and TV personality, Rebecca Chan

“The most important thing for couples to remember is that love can conquer all”, says Rebecca Chan. “There may be fewer guests this year and that dream venue may not be a possibility anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t host the wedding of your dreams before the year is out! I’m so excited to join Miller High Life to help couples make their big day one they will never forget.” 

By assisting with everything from floral arrangements and catering, to wedding attire and videography, Miller High Life’s Backyard Weddings contest will ensure that a quality wedding (just like a quality beer) is within everyone’s reach, allowing happy couples to toast their biggest champagne moment with the Champagne of Beers. 

“As the Champagne of Beers, Miller High Life has long been associated with weddings and other celebratory occasions,says Aurora Monyei, Marketing Manager, Miller High Life. “That’s why we’re giving couples who have had their weddings impacted by the pandemic an opportunity to reimagine their special day with a little help.”
