I love Etsy. It’s like a way cooler, easier, trendier version of a craft fair. There really is something for everyone. For brides planning weddings, Etsy is a great source for unique wedding related products.

Since this is wedding week on the blog, I decided to offer my FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY: a $25 gift card to Etsy. Even if you aren’t planning a wedding, Etsy offers great selection of products from vendors of all types for men and women.

So, here’s how you enter:

1. Follow My Blog. Directly to the right underneath the “About Me” photo, there is a box that allows you to follow my blog. If you use wordpress, you can follow directly via wordpress, but if not, you can easily follow via email. I don’t send silly spam or bombard your inbox. You just get a notifications when I post something new! You must be a follower to win.Β If you already follow, skip this step.

P.S. It would also be awesome if you “liked” my blog on Facebook. You don’t have to do that to enter the contest, but it is a great way to stay connected! Click Here for that page.

2. Comment and tell me what you like best about weddings. Maybe you love watching the groom’s face when the bride walks down the aisle. Maybe you hate weddings and your favorite part is leaving at the end. Either way, comment and let me know! Don’t be discouraged if your comment doesn’t show up right away. I approve each one!

3. Wait to win! I will announce the winner via random selection next Wednesday! Entries will be accepted through 11:59pm on Wednesday, June 10.

4. Buy something awesome on Etsy. If you win, that is.
