Today has been a super lucky day for me and I just wanted to share my joy with other bees! I won some awesome wedding stuff today and I’m super excited!!
Preowned Wedding Dresses dot com was doing a contest for a free wedding dress cleaning and boxing last week…I got an email today that I won it. I bought my dress from another bee immediately after her wedding and it needs to be cleaned so this is perfect!
I entered a contest on a blog site last week for a custom oil painting of your wedding dress and I got a tweet today announcing me as the winner! It’s a 5×7 custom painting of my dress..how cool is that?!
I went to a bridal show this evening at Castle McCullough in NC and they had door prizes. The only one they announced tonight was the grand prize, and guess who’s name got picked? Yep me!!! I won a 3 day 2 night honeymoon cruise!!!
I enter a lot of contests and have won some cool stuff before (including my platinum wedding band from David’s Bridal :-D) but I’ve never had this kind of luck before. I feel like I’m on cloud nine!
So, are there any other bees out there that have won anything? Please share!

O.o Oh My Gosh… go buy a lottery ticket like RIGHT NOW!!!!
I never seem to win anything… I think ladies like you suck all my luck up 🙁
Edit: Actually, I seem to recall a phone call about winning a honeymoon from the bridal show I went to. But I’m sort of distrustfull about things like that, so I sort of assumed it was a scam and never called back. Plus I already had my honeymoon planed and taken care of, so I wasn’t too worried about it. Maybe I missed out on a free trip… or maybe they call everyone and then hit you with fees later?? Have you looked into it?

My MOH jokes that I am the luckiest person she has ever known. I went to a comedy club and filled out a comment card, got a call a few weeks later that I had won 6 free tickets, Filled out another card and got a call a few weeks later that I won 6 free tickets again! I actually just got a call tonight from a radio station that I won a draw they had at a festival, I won a girls package which is an out fit designed special for me… I need to enter more things too! Wedding shows are awesome for prizes, I usually do pretty well when I go lol

@AllShookUp: I was at the bridal show when they did the drawing and spoke to the cruise line there so I know its legit. I don’t trust the ones that call you later usually they are trying to sell you something. But if you know you went to that bridal show it could have been real!
I do play the lottery lol but I don’t think I’m quite THAT lucky! I do pretty well when the odds are small..the only time I got picked out of millions was the David’s Bridal contest. But hey, if you don’t play you can’t win!
Thanks for the congrats!

@avonleaR: I’m glad this inspired you to enter more contests!
It’s a great feeling when you win something, but don’t get discouraged if you don’t! I enter stuff all the time…so much in fact that my fiance doesn’t even want to hear when I win stuff anymore. I definitely lose way more than I win, but as I said before, if you don’t play you can’t win!
