Since escort cards were our first Ultimate Southern Challenge, we weren’t really sure what sort of a response we’d get — but heavens to Betsy, y’all blew it out of the water! We were so impressed with the creative, crafty, and OH so Southern entries we received. However, that did make it difficult to pick a winner. But, using a combination of reader votes and Southern Weddings editor opinions, we have come to a decision.
Congratulations to Honey Bee Invites! Delivering not one, but TWO adorable concepts, plus garnering tons of reader support, we are happy to crown these ladies our first Ultimate Southern Challenge champions. Make sure you take another look at their fabulous escort card ideas here and here, and the rest of their work on their site and blog!
Kudos also to our runners-up, Southern Fried Paper and Beeology101. Check out their terrific projects here and here!
And lastly, one more congratulations to ALL of our finalists — Emily Steffen, Daisies & Pearls + Meredith Perdue, Cyn Kain + Erin McLean, and Allison Barnhill Designs. We had tons of ideas sent in, so we hope you consider it an honor to be chosen as a finalist, because we certainly do!
Thank you again to all who participated! And stay tuned, because the next Ultimate Southern Challenge will be posted next week!! Suggestions for future challenges are welcomed below :)
