Couple Lets Complete Strangers Plan Their Wedding
Sun 02-11-2014

Cara Day, 29, tied the knot with David Giles, 32, earlier this month, she surrendered all control over her big day to people she had never met. 

The couple from Dorset allowed strangers to choose every aspect of their nuptials from the bridal gown to the food served following a public vote on each topic.

As previously reported by MailOnline when the wedding dress was being decided, the parents sacrificed all decision-making after winning a competition run by Pearl Drops.

They had to share the run-up to their wedding on the brand's social media channels and even had a 'pearl drops smile' hashtag promoting the company incorporated into their celebrations.

But in return for giving up their freedom of choice and some privacy, they had their nuptials all paid for.

Despite having no say in how the day unfolded, newly-wed Cara said she was delighted with how it turned out.

Cara told MailOnline: 'We were both slightly nervous about handing over control, more so me than David! But to be honest, I would've been happy marrying David in any setting, we truly wanted to get married so winning the competition was just a massive bonus to the process.

'Luckily all the Pearl Drops fans have great taste so we were both so happy with everything that was voted for. It really was one of the happiest days of both of our lives. We wouldn't have wanted anything different.'
