Plus, I’m also going to throw in a free one year subscription to one of our Our Wedding Plus premium wedding websites worth $72! All this will be given to one lucky winner!

How You Enter: Go to this post and answer one of the following questions:

– What was the most useful piece of wedding planning advice you have received?
– What has been your biggest “lesson learned” so far during your wedding planning process?
– If you could do it over, what would you do differently?

How You Win: I’m going to ask some other wedding bloggers to rank their top-5 entries, based on the usefulness of your comment to someone planning their wedding. I will tally the results and pick the most popular comment. This is obviously subjective based on each judge’s opinion and my selection will be final. If I can’t get any help in the judging I will select the comment I feel was most useful, based solely on my own judgment.

Deadline: Your Comment Must be Posted by Midnight, Friday, May 2nd 2008.

Follow up to Ranger’s contest to be Grand Marshall for Fido Walk

First – thank you so much to everyone who voted. Ranger and I really appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day, but that’s what distractions are for,

Ranger “technically” did not win. The dog next to him, Veda, had the most “confirmed” votes. However, unfortunately, the doggie’s owner who entered him is under the age of 18.
The contest rules clearly state that you must be 18 years or older to win the title of Grand Marshall as there are some prizes associated with this honor.
Well, Ranger has a huge heart and couldn’t let that girl and Veda be left out in the cold. So he put his paw down and said he won’t walk without the other dog.

So Veda will get Honorable Mention and will walk in the parade right along side Ranger, who is the Grand Marshall.

Now if only the humans would get along like doggies…

Thanks again and if you have a dog, be sure to come out to this weekend, Saturday, September 8th at the Vanderburgh Humane Society Campus.  The event will take place from 9 AM – 2 PM.  It’s for a great cause!
thank you!
