pretty image by Jose VillaSo Morgan and I have come down (a small bit) from our engagement hype and have started to talk about our ideas, plans, guests lists and what we would like to incorporate into our special day. We know we want a ceremony that will reflect marriage as God's ultimate design and a testimony to our faith, a wedding where friends and family (and their talents) will be greatly involved and of course with lots of little handmade touches that reflect us as a couple. So we thought it would be fun to get a giveaway (yes I said GIVEWAWAY) up and running on the blog where we can get some creative and inspiring ideas - and where else but from you wonderful crafty lot of bloggers, many whom have been there before?! Plus I thought it would be a fun way to drag out some of those wedding photos from some of you who I have not seen before ;)
The winner will receive a very fun little package.
Inside will be something old, something new, something crafty & something blue!
(I can't work out a way to send something I have borrowed, without the other person being upset ;)...
So how to play along yourself...
1. Leave a comment on this post to let me know you will be playing along.
2. On your own blog create a new post. If you have been married before post a photo (or a few) from your wedding and tell us something that made your day special and unique or share a creative idea from a wedding you have attended. You can also link to a creative wedding idea you have seen online, a link to your favorite wedding blog (or wedding post), or a favorite Etsy wedding find.
3. Spread the word on your own blog about this giveaway and encourage your friends to join in by popping on over here and leaving a comment and sharing their own wedding photos and inspiring ideas on their blog too.
4. And have a tonne of fun reminiscing, gaining new bloggy friendships and looking at everyone's wedding photos - I will also upload a list with a link to each ladies blog who participates.
Remember to be included in the draw you must leave both a comment (so I know to enter you into the draw) along with a creative wedding idea, a link to your favorite wedding blog or wedding post, or a favorite Etsy wedding find - which can be posted in the comment section or on your own blog post. Those who create a post on their own blog with a link back here will be given a bonus entry into the draw.
This giveaway will close on Friday 21st August 12.00 EST and announced on Monday 24 August. The winner will be randomly drawn.
So Since I have never been married before (duh!) I thought I would leave you with some photos of a wedding I was lucky enough to be a part of - my lovely cousin Larissa's and her equally amazing husband Brant. They were married at North Sydney on 2 October 2004 in the same church our Nanna & Pa and her parents were married in, with a ceremony which left everyone in tears! One of the highlights of the wedding was having some of our photos taken at the theme park - Luna Park on Sydney Harbour. It was fun to walk through the park champagne in hand and left some great opportunities for some amazing photos. We even got to ride the old 1920's carousel for free, which of course was the page boy's absoluete highlight (ok maybe one of mine too :) !
Love Kt & Morgan :)
