I don’t know about y’all, but I think one of the best feelings in the world is lounging on the beach with a good book, which is why I’m excited that Southern author Mary Alice Monroe is releasing her newest novel, A Lowcountry Wedding, on May 3, just in time for those warm beach days coming up! As the fourth installment in her New York Times bestselling series, this newest addition shares the story of three half-sisters and their grandmother working to rebuild family bonds, all while showcasing the unique loveliness and charm of both a seaside and a plantation wedding.
A longtime resident of Charleston, Mary Alice knows firsthand the beauty that the Lowcountry has to offer, and uses its Spanish moss-draped trees and refreshingly laid back Southern elegance as inspiration in her novels. Sounds right up our alley!
Not only are we so excited for this book to hit the shelves, but Mary Alice is offering readers an amazing gift to celebrate: the chance for one couple to have a free (yes, free!) dream wedding in Charleston! She has teamed up with the Charleston Area Convention & Visitor’s Bureau and Ashley Rhodes Event Designs (the talented lady behind this and this wedding we’ve featured, to name a few!), along with many other talented vendors, to give away a wedding to a very lucky couple.
To enter, simply fill out this form, which includes a place to submit a brief video highlighting why a Lowcountry wedding is important to you and your beau. The deadline to enter is May 31. A panel of judges will then select a handful of finalists on June 13, leaving the rest of the contest in the hands of the public to vote for the winner (to be announced on June 27)!
For more information and details of this fabulous prize package, head on over to Mary Alice Moore’s website, Facebook, or Twitter. Don’t forget to look for A Lowcountry Wedding on shelves this May (and our fingers are crossed for you and your beau)!
