Don' t you love mutually happy events?
I'm winding down my wedding recaps and I've been wanting to thank you all for following along on the wedding planning process, and then DesignerApparel.com e-mails me wanting to give one of you all a $75 gift card to Nordstrom's!
DesignerApparel.com is buddies with online retailer's like Nordstrom's and Bloomingdale's, and they have this Mother of the Bride Dresses page that helps brides-to-be and their moms (and their partner's moms!) find the perfect mother of the bride/groom dress. They have designers like Adrianna Papell, Tadashi and Eileen Fisher, all of them that don't look bridesmaidy (some moms don't want to blend in to much) but don't look matronly, so it's a really good mix.
The traditional long-dress-with-a-matching-jacket dress didn't fit the style of our wedding, so both my mom and my mother-in-law got their dresses at Nordstrom's -- which is why I thought this giveaway was so perfect since I can personally vouch for what a great idea this is!
I even have proof! Here's Ryan and his mom in her pretty Nordstrom's dress (I am 99.9% positive her's was from Nordstrom's, but she ordered several and returned the ones she didn't like so I'm a bit fuzzy on what came from where)....
And here's my mom in her Nordstrom's dress! My mom walked in, we looked for 20 minutes and she bought this. It was too easy.
DesignerApparel.com also makes your life easier with nice touches like price comparison, free shipping notices and sale notifications.
Here's how to enter: Just comment and tell me something warm and fuzzy. Was your coffee order perfect at Starbuck's today? Are you rocking your favorite outfit? Have you caught up with an old friend lately? Are you pumped it's almost fall? You have until...let's say Thursday September 2 at 7 p.m., Central time.
Just a note: I'm not getting anything out of this contest. They e-mailed me, I thought you all would love it, and I personally used Nordstrom's for my wedding shopping. There's the full disclosure my friends!
