Contest Update, Y'all!

Hey Everyone! So you know all about the fab contest that's happening here at The Thirty-Something Bride, right? No? Really? You should. It's a good one. All the details are here, but I also have a few updates for you.

First (and I can't believe I have to spell this out...but so be it, we've had some inquiries): This contest is not just for brides in their 30's. This blog is not just for brides in their 30's. I happened to be a thirty-something bride, hence the name. Who knew I'd be writing this damn thing almost two years from when I started? So if you're a freakish child-bride or an old, old lady getting married for the millionth time, you can enter. We don't believe in ageism here here at The Thirty-Something Bride. No, we do not.If we did, I'd be in a shit-pile full of trouble.

Second: If you would rather not answer any of the questions, that's ok, you can opt out. Just remember that creativity is best in the questions you do answer.
Third: This contest  has been extended out to 2012 weddings. WOOT!

Fourth: Now extending the deadline for entries to February 6th. Double WOOT! This gives you a little more time to get your crap together and enter!

SO ENTER! Carissa Uribe of Dulce Photography (dulce means "sweet" in Italian) is an amazing photographer. And it's OK if you don't live near her home town of Park City, Utah. Look at it this way: a photographer of her caliber for all-day wedding coverage will cost you thousands of dollars. Thousands. A plane ticket from Salt Lake City (a hub) to just about Anywhere, USA, will cost you $500 or less. I checked prices from Salt Lake City to Miami on a weekend in May and the price is $501. To Dallas is $334. To NYC is $369. To Charlotte is $318 and to Nashville is $400 (all prices found through my fave travel site Kayak.) So even if she isn't local for you - WHO CARES! It's still a deal no matter how you look at it!

Besides, you'll get pictures like these...for FREE.

So go here and enter to win today!

I posted your contest on my facebook. I actually was a 30Something Bride, as you know, and the last of my friends to get married. :) BUT, maybe someone will know someone and you'll get some entries from my post. I'm looking forward to voting on entries! This is one heck of a kick-ass contest!

Word! As soon as I'm "officially official" on the engagement front and as soon as we set a date, I am ALL. OVER. THIS. Because Vegas? Not so far from the Utah.

@ Christy - thanks for the FB love, girl!
@Jennie - think you can get that boy to propose by Feb 6th?

As a 30-something bride, I have to say, I love your first clarification!!!! Phew. Now I am secretly hoping that a 70 year old bride wins this THING and kills the quiz. (though I am considering entering this since we are close to nailing down a date after a long period of Wedding Planning Stagnation - as in, What, I have to plan this thing? Pour me another glass of wine. Thanks.) I love these photos... whoever wins, is going to be so very lucky!!!!!

@Joanna - You should read A Los Angeles Love if you don't already. She's the queen of procrastination and wine drinking. And we love her for it.

Louise: The day I posted this about being officially-official, I discovered that his grandmother's engagement-ring-turned-pin was gone from the bedside table drawer. (Cue !!!!!!!!!) But yesterday he got cash out of his lockbox for dinner and he took it out of the pin box. (Cue :((((((( ) SO the big question is this: IS the pin still in the box, OR has the pin already gone to the jeweler. I am, of course, on tenterhooks. And desperate to ask him if we can set a date and then he can propose officially later so we can HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN SOME FREE BADASSERY!!! Don't think he'll go for that. But we'll see what the rest of the weekend brings!
