You can win a 5-day getaway to  an adults-only luxury hotel, the Grand Paraiso Hotel in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, wedding bands, and a Zales Celebration Fire diamond engagement ring. This Grand Prize package is worth about $19,000. To enter, you must tell the contest organizers the most over-the-top and elaborate wedding proposal you could imagine to take place at the Grand Pariso Hotel and Resort. Record your ideas and submit them online on the Most Epic Proposal Ever contest site  to enter. Now, your proposal for The Most Epic Proposal Ever contest needs to be one that could go viral. For example, some of the most popular viral proposals on YouTube include flashmob proposals (with hot routines) dramatic videos that culminate in a proposal, and proposals that are entertaining and end with a “yes”.

Once at the resort, the staff at the Grand Paraiso will help plan and execute a surprise proposal that will be captured on video and shared with the masses (of course).  A panel of judges will choose the winners. Yes. That’s right. There is more than one winner. The second runner-up will spend four days and three nights at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso and take one an engagement ring from Zales. The second runner-up will spend four days and three nights at a four star Iberostar property in Cancun. Entries for the contest must be received by February 28, 2013.
