The past two months have been full of amazing giveaways. I love reading all of your responses and seeing how much these fab prizes would mean to you. It would be so hard to me to choose a winner. Thankfully, we leave these things up to fate and use a handy-dandy random number generator. I’m excited to finally announce the winners!
We featured Jess Wainer’s one-of-a-kind mini bud vases. I’m a fan of how each vase is hand-made and completely unique, just like your bridesmaids!
We asked you to tell us how your bridesmaids have made your life fun and full. Reading over your comments made my day! Winner, Courtney said,
I consider each of my bridesmaids to be the sister I never had. I have my best friend who I can tell everything (matron of honor), the other best friend who has always wanted the best for me and cheered me along to finish my dreams (maid of honor), the friend who I am most like-personality wise, the friend who is sentimental and wants to make sure my wedding is my dream’s vision, the friend who is always happy and bring happiness to people when they are down, and the friend with whom I fight with like sister’s about mostly everything but still can look at each other and know that at the end of the day we are always there for one another. My bridesmaid are a collection of friends from lifelong friends to sorority sisters to college roommates. It was a tough decision picking who I wanted in the wedding party, but in the end I knew that these girls have always had my back and I couldn’t imagine not standing up on the most important day of my life without them!
Fine & Fleurie knows a Southern girl needs her pearls. I was so excited to feature a giveaway with their beautiful Swarovski pearl necklace and bracelet bridal set. Any bride would look lovely in it!
We asked you to tell us about your favorite piece of heirloom jewelry or, if you didn’t have one, why this set would make the perfect heirloom. Winner, Shannon said,
My favorite (and only) piece is from my grandmother, and is her college ring! I like to think of her attending classes way back in the 1920s when I wear it.
Over here at Southern Weddings, we’re big fans of photo booths. We know you love them, too, which is why this giveaway from Say Cheese! Paper Props was so perfect. Their mustache and bow tie props are adorable. I’d be happy to sport one of them in a photo booth!
You guys told us all about your favorite photo with your sweetie (those were some cute responses y’all!). Winner, Courtney, told us,
My favorite picture of my fiance and I is a picture of the moment we met. We met at a “mixer” that his fraternity threw for my sorority, October 2, 2008 (I still have the invitation). We were talking about how we were from the same hometown (Chickamauga, GA) when one of his fraternity brothers came by and snapped a picture of us. Not many couples have a picture of the moment they met, so we are lucky. Now almost 3 years after that picture was taken we are getting married. We are getting married on August 20, 2011 in our shared hometown of Chickamauga, GA. (This is a very small town. We both grew up there all of our lives and never met. I went to the City school and he went to the County school. We also had mutual friends and never met til we joined Greek Life.)
Congratulations, y’all! Winners, I’ll be getting in touch with you soon, so be on the lookout for an email from me.
Keep an eye out for more giveaways in the future!
