Contest: Win 2 Tickets to The Civilized Bride Show

The Civilized Bride Show is a boutique show where brides mingle with top wedding vendors. It's like girls' night out meets bridal show complete with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and a nightlife reminiscent vibe.


Share your wedding plans with us in the comment section! Tell us about your wedding theme, how he (or you) popped the question, where you plan to tie the knot or anything about your big day and we will select 2 winners on Sunday, October 21 at 11:59pm EST. Each winner will be emailed a pair of tickets to the show. Good luck!


  1. I popped the question. Why shouldn't guys get romanced every once and a while?
    We're planning a simple but fun wedding for next fall. We both want it to feel like a really great party, rather than just a list of expensive traditions. Probably a retro theme - old building, cocktail style, vintage dress - oh god, I'm such a cliché!

  2. He popped the question to me one night when we were sitting on the couch and just relaxing. No bells and whistles, he just asked and I said yes. It was perfect. We're planning a fun wedding and cocktail party reception for spring. We want to throw our friends and family an amazing party and not get bogged down by traditions and what others feel we 'have' to do in order for it to be a wedding. We're not about the clichés.

  3. He popped the question up north at his cottage, out on the boat in the middle of the lake, with my favourite song playing in the background! The leaves were all changing for Fall, it was super romatical (ie. cheesy, but I loved it!)!
    We just booked our venue for next Fall in the country. Hoping to have lots of homemade touches, and really cute details. Trying to incorporate the "nature" theme into our decor, since we both love the outdoors, and rthe proposal was a great relfexion of that!

  4. Knowing that his grandma is a little... over-eager/senile, I was a bit worried when I opened the card that said, "You're engaged!" I opened it to find his writing though, letting me know that although he told me we were dating (he was too nervous to ask), he was asking me to marry him.

    It all would have been terribly romantic if he'd been home at the time... he sent the card in the mail knowing I loved mail and that we normally got home at the same time - too bad that day was the exception! I had to wait until he got home from work to say yes!
