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.

We might have been conflicted, but the voters weren’t — Andre C. also received the most amount of votes! So the People’s Choice winner goes to the 2nd most number of votes, congratulations Cassie P.!

Emails are going out now to the winners. Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to everyone who has gotten engaged recently!


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!

Sorry, this contest is over!
