Mates for Life Madness: Brought to You by Avocado! (Part 1 of 4)

Hello, hive! Valentines Day is fast approaching and, of course, we couldn’t be more excited to take an entire day to celebrate L-O-V-E! We’re excited to team up with Avocado, a brand new app made especially with couples in mind, to bring one lucky Weddingbee reader a $200 Gift Card for Valentine’s Dream Date + a lifetime subscription of Avocado unlimited.


Avocado is the app made just for couples. It’s a reliable, secure, and fun way to privately stay connected to your fiancé no matter where you go and features fast messaging, photo sharing, and mobile Hugs and Kisses (yes, really). Engaged couples who use Avocado love using Avocado’s shared lists to get things done before the big day, and the shared calendar makes reminding their sweetie about upcoming appointments a breeze! Avocado is available for Android and iPhone and on the web:


To win, participate in our Mates for Life Madness vote off, then let us know you voted in the comments! We’re pitting furry lovebirds against adorable pet friends in the ultimate showdown, just in time for Valentine’s Day! Avocado has scoured the web for their eight favorite animal “couples,” and over the next week, it’s up to the hive to decide which animal duo will be crowned Mates for Life! Think: March Madness, but on cute overload.

What’s up for grabs? There will be a total of 3 winners, with prizes just right for a Valentine’s Day celebration!

We’ll tally up your votes and pit the 4 winners up against each other for round two, this Wednesday, February 6th, and continue to narrow it down until one pair of furry friends reigns supreme. And remember, everyone that comments on any of the four “Mates for Life Madness” posts is eligible to win! The more rounds you participate in, the higher your chances of winning.
