So I am quite a “new” bee but I am due to be engaged by the new year, yay!!!!
I recently entered the Pretty Plum Sugar robes giveaway competition, not expecting to win at all but I got an email as I woke up informing me that I had won the grandprize of 3 cotton robes! I was so surpirsed but wow am I happy. Will post (how ever long it takes for them to ship the robes) some photos and a review!
Anywho, my questions are
- Have you ever won a competiton?
- What did you have to do to ‘enter’?
- What did you win?!

Are you talking wedding related or just in general?
While I was in school I started entering a lot of contests…I won tickets to see Slayer and Rob Zombie, DH and I both won 2 pairs of tickets to Teatro Zinzanni, I won a leather bracelet from a FB contest, I won an Idaho Spuds contest and got 3 boxes of Idaho Spuds, tongs, an apron, and $50 visa card, and DH recently won a radio contest for tickets to see Cee Lo Green 🙂

Have you ever won a competiton? Yes. TNT had a show on called “Wedding Day” and they were giving away a prize package to some lucky winners to celebrate the series premier.
What did you have to do to ‘enter’? Just enter my name and address. Nothing special.
What did you win?! I won kleenexes, fake champagne flutes, and some other stuff.
I am convinced I won only becuase I was the only one that entered since the show was cancelled, like, 2 episodes in lol. And for the record I never even watched the show.

@mussongirl: I have won 3 things in my entire life.
1) My school used to have raffles at Christmas time. When I was 13 I won a curling iron. I can’t remember, but I probably spent 50 cents on a raffle ticket.
2) I once won $25 on a sratch off lottery ticket. I spent $1 on a lottery ticket.
3) I went to the grocery store, used my discount card and won a $100 giftcard, which they called “Free groceries for a month!” LMAO, who only spends $100 on groceries for an entire month? I still got some steak with my $100 🙂 I just had to use my discount card to win and I didn’t even realize the promotion was going on.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
I win concert tickets kind of a lot. I guess I am lucky. One of my radio stations has a points system that you earn and then put in however many points for the prize you want. I’ve gotten to see some awesome bands that way, sometimes in really small venues.
I win some by entering twitter competitions, too.
