Miss. couple wins ‘The Vow’ wedding contest
News from Jackson Clarion Ledger:

A Mississippi couple has won $ 25,000 in a national Valentine’s Day competition.

Megan Robinson, 24, and Peter Huwe, 25, were selected as the winners from five finalists in E! Online’s Say Your Vows Wedding Contest — a promotion for the movie “The Vow” that opened last weekend.

“As soon as I got the call, I was shocked and overwhelmed, to say the least,” said Robinson. “There may have been a few tears, and I may have caused a small scene in a local Starbucks.”

Her fiancée didn’t believe her at first.

“We let our friends and family know, and they are just as overjoyed as we are,” she said. “This has been an amazing and truly humbling experience.

“While the win is indescribably sweet, the outpouring of love we’ve received in the process has been so much sweeter. We are so grateful to everyone who voted and spread the word.

“So many people have said things like, ‘You won!’ or ‘You did this,’ but all I’ve been able to say back to them is: ‘I didn’t win this. I just got us to the starting line. We all won.’

“Peter and I are very excited about the wedding and even more excited about our future together.”

The couple, who met in a Mississippi College chemistry class, will tie the knot June 30 in Gulfport.

They won the cash, a wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, wedding bands, registry gifts and a honeymoon in Los Cabo…………… continues on Jackson Clarion Ledger

Rocky S turns wedding planner
News from Hindustan Times:

Designer Rocky S

Till now, the main ‘designer’ element about a wedding was the bride and bridegroom’s trousseau. But within a week, it would be possible to have the entire marriage ceremony planned by a professional fashion designer. On February 18, at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week,

designer Rocky S will announce the launch of Vilasa, his wedding planning company.

“With the wedding industry growing at an average rate of 25 per cent annually, the lavishness doled out by Indians is getting larger. I believe it’s the right time for me to extend my creativity to this industry,” says the designer.

Unlike other companies, this firm claims to have no set packages and themes for marriages.

The reason: each wedding will be designed individually depending on what the customer has in mind. The cost too will depend on each demand. “It will vary as per the client’s requirements,” adds Rocky.

The designer insists that he will personally “oversee the creative aspect” of all elements involved.

The list of tasks the company will be responsible for includes invitation cards, food and beverages, entertainment, photography, gift packing and even the couple’s wedding garments.

Ask if patrons will be offered a discount should they pick something from his own wedding collection as part of the plan…………… continues on Hindustan Times

Celebrity wedding dress inspiration
News from Belfast Telegraph:

Tuesday Feb 14 2012

The Wedding Journal show returns to Belfast’s Kings Hall from February 24th – 26th and with it comes a whole host of bridal fashion. From the fantastic catwalk shows that run three times daily, to the Belfast Telegraph Style Stage featuring makeovers galore, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Celebrities create a wealth of fashion inspiration every season and with the latest trend of wearing white on the red carpet, they’re now giving us endless ideas for wedding dresses too. Here are a few of our favourites from this year’s awards season. White is definitely the new black!

Straight and simple

Choosing a dress with a simple ‘shift’ shape allows you to go all out with detailing and appliqué. Lace elements, shimmering fabrics and beading all lend themselves particularly well to this style. Make sure to select a neckline that will flatter your shape, whether that’s a deep v-neck or a straight neckline with a slight cap sleeve.


The trend towards super-textured dresses is on the up. Simple, corseted style bodices are complimented with romantic, dramatic skirts. This won’t be for every body shape, suiting taller brides best.

Sheer panels

A hint of skin beneath sheer white silk is a beautiful bridal detail that’s bang on tren…………… continues on Belfast Telegraph
