There's something romantic about the idea of eloping. Some people are drawn to the notion of sneaking away with their future spouse, maybe a few close friends, and getting married without the grand production.
If you're the exact opposite of those people, and happen to like the Cubs, then boy is there a contest for you.
The "Through Thick 'N' Thin" contest, sponsored by Home Run Inn, Lou Malnati's, and Chicago Trolley & Double Decker, gives Cubs fans the chance to get married at Wrigley Field. (Thanks to Gapers Block for the tip.)
Submit a short essay (50-500 words) and a "creative photograph of the couple" to one of the sponsors' Facebook pages and you could get married, or renew your vows, at home plate before the June 13th Sox-Cubs game at Wrigley.
The wedding promises to be fun for all, as it'll mark the first celebration involving a ring at Wrigley Field in quite some time -- 102 years, give or take.
