Anniversary Dance and Bridal Hair Clip Giveaway!

One element that didn't go as planned for me was our Anniversary Dance. I decided pretty early on in the planning process to do an Anniversary Dance at the wedding. However, I don't think many people really understood what was happening and just kept dancing. The "Winners" of our dance - for being married 50 years - actually weren't married at all! They just kept dancing and weren't listening to the instructions from the band! They were family friends from Chris' side so I didn't know who they were, so I ran over to them to give them a bridesmaid bouquet thinking " They look so young to be married 50 years!"

Until I was informed that they actually weren't even married...At first, I was pissed, but what could I do about it? Then I started to laugh, cause it actually was kind of funny. Oh well...sorry to whoever SHOULD have won!
Speaking of winning things you shouldn't have won in the first place, I won this gorgeous hair clip from the blog A Reccessionist Ties the Knot last December.
I was so excited to wear it in my hair on my wedding day. However, once I picked out my hairstyle and elements for the day, like Mrs. Recessionista, it didn't really work with my hairstyle or overall look. And so, once again, it went completely un-used.

Recessionista described this by saying the following:
"The hair pin is an ivory (with tulle accents) silk rose hair pin (see similar style here), made of gorgeous dupioni silk."
 
This has NEVER BEEN WORN. It is in brand new condition and just waiting to be used for your gorgeous wedding! I really hope the next person that has this can get some use out of it!

LMAO!!! That story is just too funny! I love the picture of you laughing with them. Not worth getting upset over and it makes such a great wedding story. It just shows how much fun everyone was having dancing at your wedding.

That hair clip is so pretty and will be perfect for the right bride! We showed a slideshow during our anniversary dance, and the first time we played the song, a lot of people forgot to dance since they were looking at the wedding photos of family members and friends. The DJ had to play it a second time! Sorry to hear yours didn't go quite as planned, but it's definitely one of those unexpected but fun stories you can retell from the day!

Okay, so clearly since I'm married I'm not entering for myself, but to give away to my best friend who's getting married on June 2...and really really wants a flower in her hair - it would be perfect!

Oh! I just started the hunt for something pretty for my wedding day hair! My inspiration picture (which you can see on my blog's inspiration board) for my hair do has a gorgeous white flower in it so I've started the hunt for something similar! This is gorgeous and I think would be perfect! Great giveaway!

Hilarious! That picture makes it so much better. The look on the guy's face... like "what? married? who?" Awesome!

That's such a bummer that you couldn't end up wearing this! It's so beautiful. I would love to win it. I know that I want a flower like this on my wedding day and I've been searching. This one is perfect!

I follow your blog! I'm planning a wedding for September of 2013 and would love to have a hair accessory like this!

Amanda said...

This is just what I have been looking for! I would be so grateful to win this amazing clip! My wedding is in September 2012 and it would compliment my dress so well. It would be amazing to win this because as we all know these things can get pricey...
