I’m sure, at some point, most brides have dreamt about getting away from it all. Let’s face it, planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful so who wouldn’t daydream about packing it all in and jetting off to elope in The Bahamas!? Well your fantasy might be a little closer than you think, with these two amazing competitions that I have for you today!
Sincerity Bridal, known worldwide for their gorgeous bridal and evening gowns, have just recently launched their Bahamas Collection of wedding dresses. The gorgeous new range boasts 16 beautiful gowns, each named after one of the 16 main islands of The Bahamas.
To celebrate, Sincerity Bridal and the Bahamas Tourist Office have joined forces and are offering you the chance to win a luxury honeymoon in The Bahamas, staying at the Melia Nassau Beach Resort, and the wedding dress of your dreams from the collection.
Entering both contests couldn’t be easier. For the opportunity to snag your wedding dress simply visit the Sincerity website and answer the stupidly easy question “How many dresses are there in the Sincerity Bahamas collection?” (Hint: I’ve answered it in this blog post!) Full competition Ts & Cs can be downloaded here.
I’m in a celebratory mood today because we just cracked 50,000 likes on the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook page. You guys are awesome! To celebrate I’ve partnered up with the fabulous Etsy to give one lucky blog reader a £50 voucher to spend on their amazing website. Happy Christmas to YOU!
Entering couldn’t be easier and there are a few ways you can do it, each action is a new entry and you can enter as many times as you like.
Wedding apps are a funny breed. We waited for years for someone to create a decent one, while small (and usually slightly buggy) ones hit the app stores in drips and drabs. But they all seemed to result in the same thing – system crashes and loud sighs of disappointment. Surely, having a space on your phone to plan your wedding, save your inspiration, keep tabs on your guest list and track your expenses couldn’t be that hard to create, right!? Oh and we’d like it to be intuitive to use and to be gorgeously designed too please.
Who would have thought it would take so long, but finally, finally, there’s one worth using – and as an Android user I am utterly thrilled that it’s available for both iPhone and Android devices. Introducing Appy Couple.
Appy Couple is more that just another wedding phone app. It’s a completely custom wedding planning tool, a guest concierge service and social network in one. But more than that, it’s one that you and your guests will actually want to use. Both you and your fiancé will have a login so you can both update it, and your guests can use it to learn about your wedding, be introduced to the wedding party and even to get to know other guests before the event!
I love that I can call so many of my regular contributors real life friends. It means that when it comes to sharing the amazingly generous and totally awesome special offers of someone I actually know and love offline, I can genuinely wax lyrical about how rad they are online.
Lee Robbins of Robbins Photographic is a wedding photographer from Brighton. I’ve featured his briz-illiant photography on my blog too many times to mention. His eye for detail and the way he see the world is so unique and oh so beautiful but totally and utterly bad ass.
He’s also a massive party animal (ahem just like me) but more about that later…
Big love to all that entered our contest to win free wedding photography from Xanthe Roxburgh. The time has now come for me to announce our 3 finalists and I need you, dear readers of Rock n Roll Bride to vote for your favourites to win! Simply read the stories below and select your winners via the widget at the bottom of this post.

You have until Sunday 27th March to vote and the ultimate winners will be revealed at 9am (GMT) Monday 28th. Good luck to all these gorgeous couples.

Christine & Simon are getting married on 12th May 2012 in Oakham, Rutland, UK
Simon and I still have a way to go with planning but we do have lots of brilliant ideas that will be quite unique to us!
The actual wedding ceremony will take place at our town’s church, mainly this is convenient but more importantly Simon’s parents and his grandparents were Wed there! Our general theme for our wedding is an English Country Wedding with a shimmer of elegance (nothing too shabby chic). Our evening reception will take place in a Marquee on the grounds of a beautiful country house, very private and exclusive.
After the wedding breakfast at around 9pm we will have an ice cream and cookies bar served with every sauce and topping under the sun! It will be a lovely evening twist to get rid of the dreary finger buffet! We will also have milk and hot chocolate to wash it all down with.
My dad’s brother is kind enough to be walking me down the aisle on my big day, unfortunately my dad was murdered back in August 2010. He was a big lover of life and wanted to live life to full, so having an amazing photographer capturing my day would be magical. I want the vibrancy of the day and the close family ties to show through my pictures.
