Happy Tuesday — ready to win? Grace Ormonde, the editor-in-chief of WeddingStyleMagazine.com, has graciously given us a copy of her new book, ‘being in love never goes out of style”, to give away to one lucky reader!

We’ve received some amazing responses to our Newly Engaged Giveaway and the judges have finally finished deliberating! We were all very conflicted — every entry received some votes from each of us and there wasn’t an obvious winner. But after some time, we’ve chosen the Judge’s Choice winner (winning the feature on HowHeAsked.com as well as the physical prizes)!
Without further ado, the Judge’s Choice winner is…
I’ve been so happy seeing so many newly engaged posts from over the holidays — two close personal friends on mine, as well as dozens of ring pictures that have been popping up on Reddit lately. Between now and Valentine’s Day, we’re definitely in engagement season. To celebrate, WeddingLovely and our partners are running a huge engagement story contest!
If you’re newly engaged (since October 2012), post your engagement story in the comments on this post, and you’ll be eligible for $454 worth of great prizes!
Happy Engagement Season –aka “the most wonderful time of year!”

We’ve chosen a winner for the First Annual WeddingLovely Reader Survey and they have been emailed! Just an FYI for all that entered, and to everyone who did: thank you so much. I’m looking forward to using that data to build a better WeddingLovely Blog!
The survey is still open to those who’d like to give their thoughts — it’s anonymous (if you don’t leave your email) and it’ll share the future of the blog. Add your response here!
I’m hoping to get a few more responses to the WeddingLovely First Annual Reader Survey, since I totally fell off the ball on promoting it this week (I blame the holidays + being sick the last few days!)
As thanks for taking the time to fill it out (should take less than 10 minutes), respondants who leave their email will be entered in a giveaway for five beautiful letterpress Thank You cards from The Aerialist Press (seen above).
Thanksgiving is almost here, which means it’s also major sale and deal time due to Black Friday/Cyber Monday!
