- Wedding: May 2011
So my local wedding dress store was holding a very big contest to promote their new non-traditional wedding dresses they just got in! To enter, you had to submit a headshot and a one page essay about youself( who you are, what you do, etc.) The rules were only that you had to be getting married within the next year. That’s it 🙂
So I entered the contest and out of over 10,000 entries, I was chosen as one of the five finalists.
The store then set us up to have our hair and makeup done and to be photographed in a dress of their choice (one of the new dresses). The winner would have their photo on a billboard (to advertise for the store) and win $5000. I just got notification that I won!!!! It was so fun to be all dolled up too! I felt like a celebrity!!! I had to share with you ladies! The photographer took some beautiful close-ups for me which was really sweet. I am so excited!!!!!! Here are the pictures that were taken of me that I won with 🙂 The dress came just to my knees and was slim fitting, with lots of beading. It retails at $2400 (PHEW!!) I was so scared I was going to rip it or get it dirty! LOL
And here is the picture that will be going on the billboard!
