Our giveaway is Courtesy of Vista Print.

They are a really cool printing company that offers a variety of basic invitation designs at an affordable price and several are in coordinating sets! I spent HOURS looking around on this website trying out different designs and features. I wish I had known about them when I was working on my STD’s. It would have made my life soooo much easier.

Oh! And if you are short on time you can have your order in the mail within 3 business days. How is that for service?!?!?!
To enter: Leave a comment below with your first name, wedding date, a short description of which prize you would like to win and what style your wedding will be by midnight on Thursday August 27 (Central Daylight Time). I will announce the winner Friday morning.

Good Luck!!!!
Just in case you missed it....I am Extending the contest

Hey gang! I will be leaving town earlier than I thought and won't have access to the internet for a few days. I will continue the contest until MIDNIGHT on Sunday August 30th and announce the winner Monday.

YAY! We would love to have the save the dates. Our wedding is 10/10/10. Most of our guests are coming from far away, though, so we need to send the save the dates soon after the first of the year. We're having an magical garden/ breakfast for dinner event filled with music and board games.

We're also avid Vista Print users, so this would be perfect. Thanks so much.

Oh wow - how exciting!

We would love 75 invitiations + 75 thank you notes. OUr wedding date is 19 December 2009 and we've already sent our Save the Dates.

We're two women (obviously, based on the screen name) and can't legally marry here. So we're having a commitment ceremony. It's Summer here in December and we've picked a beach venue. It was the location of our first holiday and the first time I realised I was completely and utterly in love with her, and vulnerable to her. She's my first girlfriend (after being married to a guy) and I feel so lucky to have found her. Our wedding has a personalised ceremony - no pre-written readings. Our celebrant is writing it from scratch based on a essay we both had to write about the other (and not show our partner). So I know there will be lots of tears and lots of laughs, as I cried the whole way through writing that essay! As someone who travels to Asia frequently, we're having some Chinese touches - fans, parasols etc. I got a fan made with my partner's name in Chinese on it! But mostly our theme is just the natural beauty of the beach and our love.

I love your site - thank you so much.

I would like 125 invitations and 25 thank you notes, please.

We are trying to DIY our invitations, and this would be so helpful.

I would probably do all Thank-you cards...or all invites! I haven't found either yet so this would be a great thing to win!

I don't want to enter the contest, (already married!) just wanted to say that I used Vistaprint to create my STD's (postcards & magnets) and my brochures for my OOT guests.... LOVED their products, still use them all the time, there's tons of freebies when you sign up with them.

I'm sure the winner will be pleased with the final products.

Hi, what a great giveaway! Love the new site, it's great to have a place to go and check out what real women are doing wedding-wise.

We could definitely use 150 invitations. Our wedding style is modern, relaxed and jubilant with DIY touches sprinkled throughout(paper flowers, repurposed beer bottle centerpieces, homemade bouquets, etc.) I'm focusing on a yellow, orange and gray colorscheme, which happen to be the prevalent colors in our home decor- we are trying to ensure the wedding reflects us and our lifestyle, so what better way than to base it on our little nest.

I would need 120 invitation and 30 thank you cards.

Wedding Date: 7-3-10

Our wedding has a 50's vintage feel to it, lots of crepe paper bells and balloons. We are giving most of the planning over to the women in my family since I am currently unemployed, but I have veto power to keep things cohesive.

Nightfall said...

Hooo, tough call. I want to DIY my invites and do some fancy stuff but 150 already done, I-can-concentrate-on-just-sending-them, oh-please-not-another-project thank yous would be great!

I would take the combination of the prizes, split 3 ways, totaling 50 of each.

My wedding has bohemian/french Provencal theme to it. Out colors are lavender, old gold and sage green. Very much a vintage feel to it.

Me said...

My name is Teresa and our wedding date is 10/16/10 - which is my late grandmother's birthday.

I would love 100 invitations and 50 thank you cards.

Our wedding is at a rustic old mining cafeteria in the Rocky Mountains - so everything will be as nature-oriented and minimalist as possible, in order to emphasize the loveliness of the golden aspen trees. :)

Lena, January 24, 2010. We are having a modern city wedding and could really use those thank you cards ;)

Ruthie said...

Ruth, July 31st, 2010. We're having a earthy, outdoor wedding, and we have it covered for invitations, but can't afford Save the Dates, so that would help a lot!

oh I love this! I just stumbled on your blog while looking up something :) I offer bridal corsets and lingerie all the way from S-6X, and would love to offer something for your giveaways :) We do this type of thing as well and it's fun for everyone!
