Enter to Win a $50K wedding!

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens offers a dream wedding in 2013

WRITTEN BY Melissa Bigner

One of the most fun parts of my job is calling giveaway winners and hearing them plain freak out with excitement. And it doesn’t seem to matter if the giveaway is a modest deal or a big ol’ to-do—excitement rules either which way. As for this week’s giveaway? I’d definitely put it in the full-on freak-out, mega big to-do column. Ready? Really? How about here’s your chance to enter to win a $50,000 all-inclusive wedding in 2013. Yep, you read that right. We’ve partnered with Magnolia Plantation and Gardens to announce this incredible contest, and they’ve lined up an amazing array of vendors (see below) to fashion a truly dreamy Big Day.

Here’s how it works: Click here to for details and the link to the contest rules. Next? Tape a video that explains why you should win. (All videos must be received by Magnolia Plantation and Gardens by June 15.) After June 15, a panel of judges—including yours truly—will choose the finalists. Those chosen videos will be posted online in July for the public to vote on. The couple that nets the most votes will be announced in September 2012, and their wedding will be held February 9, 2013.

Wowsers, huh? As if that weren’t exciting enough, peek at the team who will be putting on the big event.
