Google+Surprise! Win the first copy of V3! You have 24 hours... - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

WE JUST CAN’T WAIT!  Someone is going to win the first copy of V3 today and have it in 36 hours.  That’s right!  One of you is getting a copy before anyone else!  We. are. excited!! And now, ladies and gents, our very own Lara Casey all the way from Salt Lake City, Utah!  

WIN THE FIRST COPY OF V3! from lara casey on Vimeo.

What you could win:

In honor of our new issue, you could win a pre-pre-order copy of V3, to be shipped out tomorrow afternoon!  That’s right, if you’re the winner, you’ll officially become the first person to hold a copy of V3 in your hands, aside from the SW ladies and, um, our parents.  And our printers.  But that’s it!  Exciting stuff, huh?

In honor of our new site, you could win a sweet ad prize pack of a NEW tier 3 ad (much more exciting than the current tier 3, I’ll have you know) AND a wedding resources listing, both valid for three months!

Why all the hullabaloo?  Well, to quote one Ms. Katharine Waterman: What’s so great about the new site, you ask?  Besides just about everything?  How about: a completely redesigned home page and user interface that will revolutionize the way you view your favorite weddings, a brand new vendor registry and all-new, bigger and better advertising options dedicated to helping you find the best vendors in the South, an exclusive Southern Shop filled with our most fabulous fab finds for the big day and beyond, and, for the first time ever, personal blog pages that will help you keep tabs on your favorite SW gals.  Whew, I almost can’t handle all the awesomeness that’s about to take over Southern Weddings.

That’s right, folks!  It’s going to be awesome.  And vendors, don’t forget:

To celebrate the all-new SW site and to help make Southern Weddings the best wedding resource around, we’re offering a 25% discount for our first advertisers on the new site.  (That’s anywhere from $50 – $300 in savings, y’all!)  Interested in being a part of the all-new SW blog?  Want a copy of our media kit? Email Katharine!

But back to the important business of winning things. Three ways to win this contest:

1) Tweet the phrase “I love @iloveswmag, y’all!” and include a link to this post, then leave an additional comment on this post telling us your twitter name.

2) Follow our Editor-in-Chief, Lara, on twitter (@LaraCasey) today and tell her why you think you should win the first copy of V3!  Then, tweet a link to this post.

3) Post the phrase “I love Southern Weddings, y’all!” on your facebook with a link to this post.  Leave a comment here telling us you did.

Feel free to enter using all three strategies for better odds, but do it quick!  We’ll draw a winner (or maybe two… we’re crazy like that!) tomorrow morning.  Good luck!
