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!
