Throughout this pregnancy, a few of my friends and family have been kind enough to volunteer to model the outfits I sew on this blog. One of the very familiar faces is my friend, Abi. You may have seen her from the Shabby Apple Lawn Frock shoot.
During the contest she was gracious enough to enlist her friends and family to vote for my dress design and now I finally have the chance to return the favor.
Over her birthday last month, Abi's longtime boyfriend, Darrell, asked for her hand in marriage. As we all well know weddings are expensive. They don't have any funds to put towards the wedding, so the two plan on saving for over a year to marry and spending around $6-$7,000.
On a lark, she entered the Love of a Lifetime Wedding Giveaway. If she wins Philly.com and Events at ISM would pay for a May 23, 2010 wedding at the newly enhanced Independence Seaport Museum, include catering from Culinary Concepts, a custom wedding dress, flowers, photography and wedding bands all worth over $90,000.
If she wins, they wouldn't have to wait two years to marry and she'd have the wedding she's always wanted.
You should be able to vote by first registering on Philly.com here. Then go to this link: To vote for Abi, click here and click on the "Vote for this couple" button at the bottom of her profile . AND you should be able to vote one time per day, per computer. So vote often! She would be forever grateful!
