The big moment is here for one lucky couple among the 12 finalists of the 2007 Sowetan Bridal Couple of the Year.

All will be revealed at a judging session and gala dinner at the Maropeng Hotel and Conference Centre in Gauteng today and tomorrow night.

Now in its 15th year, the competition this year offers prizes worth more than R2million. It is a cornerstone of the nation-building initiative, highlighting the values and virtues of family and marriage, and encourages couples to stay together for life.

It has become a brand for Sowetan and the sponsors, who this year include Old Mutual, Volvo, Galaxy Jewellers, Maropeng, Spekko Rice, Aranda Blankets and Mageu Number One.

Metro FM and SABC2 are the initiative's electronic media partners. SABC2's Zwahashu will film the finals and the show will be aired next month.

Anyone can enter the competition. Sowetan's loyal readers help to choose the monthly winners that lead up to the national finalists. The entire process is longer than 14 months. - Victor Mecoamere
