If you’re on a tight budget for your wedding like I am, you’re probably looking for all kinds of ways to cut costs. There are the usual tips like planning your wedding during the off season, or decorating the venue yourself. One of the things that you may not have considered is entering contests. I know what you’re thinking, “Who has time to enter contests…I have a wedding to plan!” I feel you, Bride to Be. Many contests are super easy to enter, though, with just a simple form to fill out, or items to pin (and I KNOW you’re on Pinterest all of the time time anyway!), so it doesn’t hurt to try. Even if you don’t win, you’ll often get a coupon or discount just for entering. Here are some wedding contests for this week that you can enter. Good luck, and let me know if you win!
If you’re planning a DIY wedding, you’ll want to enter to win a $5000 package from Micheal’s which includes designer invitations, and a trip to Dallas for you and your honey! Easy form entry. You’ll also need to upload a picture of you and your fiancee.
Deadline to Enter: 03/02/13
David’s Bridal is giving you a chance to win your bridal gown, or 5 bridal party dresses. It’s easy to enter on a form, and as a bonus, when you submit, you’re directed to Men’s Wearhouse for a chance to win a $500 credit towards tuxes!
