Vote for Your Favorite Love Story!


BRIDES has collected love stories all across the country for our Declare Your Love contest. Whether they are college sweethearts, they met during the New York City blackout of 2003, or they randomly shared a dryer at a laundromat (which led to love!), these couples think they have the best love stories in America. You be the judge!

Cast your vote for your favorite entries from engaged, dating, and married duos. Two couples will win a trip for two to New York City to get married or renew their vows, and one "Shining Story" entrant will win diamond stud earrings.

Plus, we at BRIDES will select the one couple to win a surprise proposal in Times Square on Valentine's Day, with an engagement ring from the Modern Bride collection exclusively from JCPenney.

Vote now through November 22. Winners will be announced on December 13 (except for the surprise proposal).
