The Brides Live Wedding applications are pouring in—your stories and photos are incredible! And with just 12 days left to enter for a chance to star in a million-dollar wedding, we couldn't be more excited for all the fun to come. Our winning couple will not only say "I do" at the breathtaking, oceanside St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point, California, but every wedding-day detail will be voted on by readers and Facebook fans! The dreamy décor concept, custom Invitations by Dawn stationery, stunning designer gown, dapper Jos. A Bank tuxedo, Simon G. wedding bands, and Target registry package are all up for vote! Even the hair and makeup looks created by Neutrogena and the nail art by Sally Hansen will be selected by readers and fans!
Sound absolutely amazing? We think so. With just under two weeks left to enter, here are four tips for creating a Brides Live Wedding application that knocks it out of the ballpark.
1. Tell us a story. We're talking the full story. Dish on the juicy details of how you met, fell in love, and got engaged. Was there a flash mob involved? Did you know he or she was the one from the first date? Divulge! And don't forget to emphasize why you should win Brides Live Wedding—this is extremely important to voters, so use this space to steal their hearts (and votes)!
2. Think philanthropy. Aside from winning incredible prizes, the final Brides Live Wedding couple gets to select the charity to which Brides will make a donation. We love learning about the causes you're passionate about and can't think of a better wedding gift.
3. Strike a pose. Make sure you upload clear, well-lit photos of you as a couple. You can only upload up to five photos so be selective and get smiling.
4. Be social. Invite your friends, family, coworkers, dentist, rabbi, priest, and grandparent's neighbors vote for you. We're also keeping our eyes peeled for tweets that use the #BridesLiveWedding hashtag. If you aren't selected, don't forget that there is still a way to get in on the fun by helping plan the wedding with your votes!
