Southern Living Weddings Giveaway

I was more than happy when Kley Sippel from Southern Living magazine contacted me and asked if I would review the latest edition of their 3rd annual wedding magazine.  Even though I'm not planning a wedding, I always love looking at wedding magazines...especially those featuring beautiful Southern brides.  Southern Living never disappoints and today they are offering to give 2 of my lucky readers a copy of the new "Southern Living Weddings" mag, hot off the press!

I adore the photograph on the cover of Amanda--the featured wedding..a true Southern cover girl bride and her bridesmaids.

Amanda and her groom Quinn were married in the Greensboro, Georgia United Methodist Church.

Their reception was held at Reynold's Plantation...this is one of the stops on my bucket list.  I drool when I drive through this small community on my way from Augusta to Warner Robins.  Yes, I need a couple of nights at the Ritz in Greensboro!

I love Amanda's fabulous wedding gown and adore those gold cocktail-length bridesmaid dresses!  Picture perfect!

How sweet is Amanda's bouquet with brooches that belonged to each of her grandmothers?!

The magazine features a gift guide...and of course, I have my faves...The monogrammed button down...oh-so popular now.

All the brides are doing it...fill the custom-printed bags with goodies for your guest.  Grits y'all?

Love these candles..may have to get the 'Sea Y'all' one for myself!

There are ideas for the oh-so important signature cocktails...

and colorful eye-catching cakes.

Twenty-five real weddings are featured where the couples highlight their personal spins and advice on Southern style:
~Most worth-it splurge
~Smartest save
~Favorite moment
~Every Southern bride should have
~Secret style source
~Favorite personal touch
~First Dance

GIVEAWAY:  All you have to do to be entered to win a copy of "Southern Living Weddings" is to leave a comment with your e-mail address.  Whether you are a bride-to-be, intend to give the magazine as a gift, or are like me and just love looking at all the details of beautiful events, you will love this magazine full of beautiful color photographs of Southern-style weddings.

This contest will end Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. E.S.T. and I will announce the winners at that time.  Good luck y'all!
