Brides Contest

Brides magazine has collected the best love stories in America and now you can vote on them! When you vote for your favorite love story you will be entered for the chance to win prizes to “create your own love story” (you win a gift certificate for dinner, a movie, and a shopping spree at JCPenney). Brides magazine is one of the budget wedding magazines I often recommend subscribing too. You can save a lot of money by getting a cheap subscription (wait for a sale).

Two lucky winners of the Brides love story contest will win a trip to New York to get married or renew vows. One winner will get diamond stud earrings. A fourth winner will get a surprise proposal on Times Square on Valentines Day (there are three categories of stories). It is easy to vote for your favorite!

When you vote for your favorite love story you are entered to win one of two prize packages. The prize package includes a $250 gift certificate to JCPenney, $100 American Express Gift Card, and one $25 AMC gift card.

The contest is sponsored by Modern Bride (sold exclusively at jcpenney), Times Square, and Intercontinental in New York Times Square. Full rules are listed on the website and the contest ends on December 6th, 2012.

You must be at least 18 years old and you cannot be an employee or immediate family member of any of the sponsors.
