The moment a man proposes doesn’t always turn out to be the romantic moment the poets envision. Getting engaged can be a hilarious, perplexing or downright dangerous. To celebrate the many directions a proposal can take, Best for Bride is conducting “The Most Romantic, Crazy and Funny Engagement Story Contest.”
“For our Season 3 contest, we’re inviting couples to send us their engagement or proposal stories, along with their photos or videos,” said Olga Pomeransky, Best for Bride Senior Manager. “The winner will receive a $1,000 gift certificate for their bridal and bridesmaid dresses.”
The contest is being conducted now through Aug. 31, 2011. Winners will be selected based on the number of votes that are received. The couple with the most votes will receive a $1,000 gift certificate, and all entrants will receive 15 percent off the price of their wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses.
