Tag Archives: Customize Your Wedding Contest
There were thousands of entries for our Customize Your Wedding 2012 Bride Contest – and every single one of them described a beautiful, meaningful wedding. Deciding on only three winners was agonizing! But three brides did stand out from the crowd and today I’m announcing them to the world.
Grand Prize Winner:
Whitney King from Florida
Whitney is planning an October 2012 wedding – a casual, classy and fun event with an outdoor ceremony while the sun sets. Whitney’s story touched our hearts deeply. While recovering from a tragic car accident, she met David, who turned out to be the love of her life. David is in the Air Force and he included Whitney in his fitness plans to help her heal physically. Even though she still has a slight limp, Whitney has recovered remarkably with David’s love and help. Whitney says, “Our love is true and even at my worst, David still loves me and wants to help me. We lift each other up and help each other get back up after we fall. That’s what all marriages should have.”
~ Congratulations, Whitney! As your grand prize, you’ll receive a comprehensive consultation with me in Dallas, including round trip airfare and hotel accommodations for two adults for three days and two nights. You’ll also get MiDesign@Michaels™ Custom Invites featuring exclusive designs by Jean M® (up to a $2,000 value), a $1,000 Michaels® Gift Card ($500 for a custom framing and $500 for custom floral design) and a custom wedding photo book from MiDesign@Michaels™ Photo Creations (up to a $50 value). I can’t wait to work with you and David on creating the wedding of your dreams!
Second Place Winner:
Dori Wyrick from California
Dori’s wedding to her fiancé Nate will be an August 2012, casual country event filled with homemade touches – a lemonade stand, old-fashioned lanterns and a vintage-style bar for serving drinks to guests. Dori is creating her centerpieces, floral arrangements and is also canning jams for gifts. She and Nate just started a business together, so time for wedding planning is tight. But their relationship continues to grow and they look very much forward to their wedding day!
~ Congratulations, Dori! You’ll receive a phone consultation and $500 worth of products from Michaels Custom Invites!
Third Place Winner:
Annie Wignall from Iowa
In October 2012, Annie and her fiancé William will be married at the local opera house in a simple, elegant event with an “English garden” theme in a nod to William’s English heritage. Lanterns and candles will set the scene for romance. Annie is a second grade teacher who loves using her creativity to add personal touches to every occasion, and her wedding will be no different. The couple is looking forward to finally being together in the same country after the wedding. And their new life in America will be the beginning of a fairy-tale, happily-ever-after story!
~ Congratulations, Annie! You’ll receive a phone consultation and $400 worth of products from Michaels Custom Invites!
I can’t wait to be a part of these beautiful weddings. Stay tuned for more posts about our winning brides’ dreams, plans and unique touches!
To get you inspired to submit your entry, read about one of our past winning couples, Rhiannon and Sandeep. We created a custom logo for their wedding that incorporated a peacock design in a nod to Sandeep’s heritage. The gorgeous logo accented all the elements of their stationery ensemble – from the invitations to the wedding programs to the favors. Read more about Riannon and Sandeep’s unique, elegant wedding…
Beautiful, right? Now, what would YOU do with a $5,000 grand prize? Start dreaming, and then be sure to enter the contest today!
We hope that you’ve entered the Customize Your Wedding 2012 Bride Contest by now – we can’t wait to read YOUR story!
But if by chance you haven’t yet entered, here’s more inspiration in the form of another past winner’s story. Denise and Phil wanted to blend not only their lives but also their cultures, and they wanted to make sure their personal style shone through. It was a wonderful challenge to work with them to help bring elements of Chinese culture into their wedding with Jean M invitations and accessories.
Here’s where the consultation with me, which is part of the contest prize, came into play. I gathered up a huge selection of items I thought would be perfect for their wedding – both the modern and the traditional aspects – and presented them to Denise and Phil in person. It was such an honor to guide them through their stationery and accessory choices. Read on to find out more about Denise and Phil’s wedding!
Now, if you haven’t already, be sure to share your wedding story and what makes it unique. Share all the details and we may choose you as our new $5,000 grand prize winner!
Enjoy – and good luck!
Still thinking about entering the Customize Your Wedding 2012 Bride Contest? We thought you’d be inspired by hearing about another past winner’s experience!
Meet Johnika and Darrell. Johnika’s dreams of a bright and bold wedding full of color and personal touches won us over, and we had a wonderful time helping her create wedding invitations and coordinating pieces.
Enjoy – and good luck! (And stay tuned for more previous winners’ stories!)
In case you’ve been putting off entering Michael’s Customize Your Wedding 2012 Bride Contest — maybe hearing about our past winner’s experience will get you motivated!
Meet Michele and her husband Carl. Michele’s story captured our hearts, and we fell in love with her dreams of an “Old Hollywood” style wedding. We had a wonderful time consulting with her and helping to make her dreams of the perfect wedding invitation and coordinating products come true.
Take a look at the beautiful items we customized just for Michele’s wedding:
1. Michele chose the gorgeous color combination of aqua and champagne shimmer paper for her invitation and other personalized paper products. We designed a layered tea length invitation to include the special peacock feather design we created just for her!
2. Cream and aqua napkins printed with Michele’s custom peacock feather design set an elegant tone at the wedding reception.
3. In lieu of favors, Michele and Carl donated to their favorite charities in honor of their guests. They printed these custom cards with notes letting guests know about their donation.
4. Champagne shimmer menu cards printed with their custom peacock feather design rested atop cloth napkins — and a real peacock feather was added for a special, luxurious touch.
5. The reception cards for the invitation were of champagne shimmer paper and featured aqua envelopes for a beautiful look.
6. The peacock feather design was incorporated into every element of the wedding, even down to the custom bubble favor tags we created for the couple! Aqua ribbon adds a bright finishing touch.
