Holly's Engagement Giveaway

To celebrate my engagement I decided to throw a small giveaway. I am giving away a color of nail polish that I fell in love with PINKIE PROMISE by RAINBOW HONEY. 

15ml Rainbow Honey Pinkie Promise
I guess the name Pinkie Promise reminds me of being a kid and making promises and, well you know. I guess, it kind of feels like what getting married is, but an adult version. Anywho, I like the name, and I can't wait to make my fiance "pinkie promise" forever. ;-)

Rules:
*Open to residents of U.S. and Canada only. 
*Starts 12:00 July 29th, Ends 12:00 August 6, 2012
*I will check and make sure all entries have been done correctly. Especially the winner. 
*Fake entrants, or persons entering twice will be disqualified. 
*Winner has 48 hours to contact me, or I will re-draw and pick another winner. 
*I reserve the right to add prizes to this giveaway and name multiple winners. 
*First Prize will always be Rainbow Honey Pinkie Promise. 


a Rafflecopter giveaway

As Always Much Love and Good Luck,

<3 Holly

*All items were purchased by me.

Feel free to message me for a million since we just got married a month ago. Here is one - pick NORMAL colors. Easy to find, replicate, purchase, colors that things are actually made in. I picked coral, light sage green, and aqua and had such a horrible time. You said you liked hot pink. You could do hot pink and orange, that's popular lately. A nice light creamy orange like persimmon. Hot pink would look good with loads of colors - navy blue, aqua, black, yellow, silver, etc.

I want to say once again congrats my Squishy!!!! my wedding tip to you is go with the flow, with any events there can be things that happen that you do not want, but that's what makes it a memory, so enjoy your wedding and congrats again!!!! <3 <3 love you lots.

Don't sweat the small stuff, seriously. No one is going to care if the cake's fondant is two shades darker than what you thought it would be. Also, let people help you. I had lots of fun helping a friend of mine make her wedding invites - and it kept her from spazzing about getting them done.

Don't forget to relax! Go for a mani pedi with your best friend, take a super bubbly bath - whatever.

Melissa said...

I actually don't have any wedding tips from a been there done that point of view, but I think everyone always seems less stressed if they let other people deal with all the little things. Congratulations and good luck to you!

Congrats! TIP: Designate someone to be your personal attendent. You will thank yourself later.

I have never been married but have had quite a few friends who have gotten married in the last year and my one bit of advice just from watching them: Remember that it is YOUR wedding Day. It is ultimately just about you and the name you love- no one else. Try to not let others' expectations of what your wedding should be overshadow your own. Congratulations!

just remember to have fun and relax

In the grand scheme of things, some of the little things you'll stress over won't be worth it, and won't put a damper on the big day. I was in my cousin's wedding last week, and the day before her sisters-in-law called to say they were halfway on their way from another state, and left all the bridesmaid's and groomsmen's flowers at home. My cousin completely freaked at first, and we wound up walking down the aisle with a single rose each. But at the end of the day, she didn't care about that anymore, and just cared about the amazing time she had with all her friends and family.
Oh, and photo booths are a very fun and very loved thing to have, if at all possible :b You can rent a booth, and a copy of the pictures will be put in a book for you where the guests can write a note as a cute guest book.

Congrats! I'm so happy for you! I love the polish you picked for the giveaway. I'm a big MLP fan so I have been wanting one of the Equestria polishes. :) Xoxo.

Mandy said...

I don't have any wedding tips to offer but I wish you the best as you embark on this new & exciting journey. xx

JinJit said...

Congratulations!
I am not married and definitely not planning to be, so I don't have any advice for you. Besides, i'm international so I'm outta the giveaway. But I did want to say Congratulations and may you have great life together! ♥

Kari said...

My wedding was soooo simple, me, Brian, Mom and Grandma on the beach with a nice pastor we found online. ;) Just have fun and don't worry about the "stuff". It's not all about one day but the start of a whole new life. <3

Flufflet said...

Congrats! And what a pretty polish. :)

Sabrina said...

Stay calm and remember it's the marriage that's important, not necessarily the wedding.

Tinabeanses said...

Congratulations! I also got engaged this year: I did the whole Leap Year proposal thing. :D My advice is to enjoy the ride and if you feel the pressure of wedding planning piling on, don't forget to delegate. People close to you love you enough not to mess up such an important day to you, so trust them with tasks that you don't have time to do yourself.

Tess said...

Congratulations! My biggest tip is to not become a bridezilla! One of my friend is planning her wedding and to be honest she's impossible to even be around because if something goes wrong. It's not her fault. It's the OUR fault...I'm wondering why I ever agreed to be a part of her bridal party!
Just be yourself and remember that this is a time to celebrate the love you have with your fiancé! I also second the idea of having a photo booth at the reception! The pictures are always a good memory to have!

My first wedding, I pretty much let my mom plan nearly everything. We chose a color theme of red and white, I had a large hand in choosing the pattern for my wedding dress (though my sisters decided it was *way* too plain and spent hours beading the skirt!) and mostly all we did besides that was go over details of the ceremony with the pastor. I've never been picky about decorations.

My second wedding, being a pagan wedding rather than a Christian one, was a LOT simpler. (The fact that I had to do all the planning myself this time had -nothing- to do with it, really! ;) We found a fabulous gazebo in a local park that had a double-circle enscribed in the concrete with art tiles already, and since my hubby and I, as well as the priestess, were all wearing cloaks, there was no need for fancy outfits. It was a night wedding, in a beautiful fall setting, so we didn't need any added decorations, either. :)

So no, sorry, I've got no wedding suggestions at all. But congratulations and all my best wishes! :)

I love giveaways because they lead me to new and awesome blogs (I am now following yours!! :D).
Congratulations on your engagement!!! :D That is so awesome! :D

Also, thank you for holding this giveaway! :D

For wedding tips, I would suggest wearing what makes you happiest!! :D

TrailerHood Chic said...

I'm not married.....but my advice would be this. Weddings don't have to be expensive and huge. What really matters is you & your other half joining your lives. Spend your honeymoon with your hubby and not on facebook...people can wait.

Britney said...

Beautiful Blog and awesome giveaway :P)

Brittany Moody said...

Just remember to have fun!

ScarsLikeLace said...

Congrats and thanks for this giveaway!

As for wedding tips, make a list of all of the pictures you'll want. Like one with just you and your maid of honor, or whatever, so you don't forget when the time comes. I learned the hard way. There are a bunch of pictures I wish I would have gotten, and should have made a list ahead of time to ensure I did.

Also, do bridal party pictures before the wedding, if possible, rather than making guests wait for an hour or better between the wedding and the reception!

Jessica said...

Make a budget early on and STICK TO IT! It's an important day, yes, but not important enough to put you in debt for the first 10 years of your marriage!

You don't need to invite everyone you ever met, if you want just close friends and family, it's your day so go for it! Send wedding announcements after the event to extended friends and family.

congrats! I've never been married, but I'd say don't stress out! It's an amazing occasion, just enjoy it =)

GaffoRama said...

Congratulations! I'm not married and I've never been engaged but as a bridesmaid I can only say stand your ground and have a clear idea of what you want! My friend's wedding party is all over the place with ideas, we can't even decide on shoes!

Chandi - HappinessIsADryNail said...

You know, I have never been married but from what I've seen my best advice would be to relax and have fun. It's a big day but you don't have to go crazy about it! Don't try to make or expect everything to be prefect like a fairy tale because then if something goes wrong it will ruin your day and your mood. Just roll with it!

BreAnnNicole said...

Don't try to make it anyone elses idea of perfect except your own! Stay true to who you and your husband to be are all the way from the ceremony to leaving for your honeymoon suite!

April Gevedon said...

Congrats & thanks for the giveaway!! Please yourself, not everyone else...& be yourself, not someone to please everyone else!! That way when you look back on the wedding 10 or 30 yrs from now, you will still recognize yourself!! Good luck!

alisa said...

start early especially on a budget if you have to watch your spending because it can get expensive fast if you try to get services and things on shorter notice.

Samantha F. said...

I don't really have any wedding tips, but Congratulations on your future marriage! Enjoy the small moments, and don't stress too much about material things!

krystal kesson said...

your wedding day is the day that all your hard work comes to fruition. So, after all that strees and everything else that comes with it, its all over. so, RELAX and ENJOY IT!!! leave all the little details to someone else. At the end of the day, you wont remember that so and so got the wrong meal or something was the wrong color. you will remember all the good things. Thats the best advice I can give. Just have fun, relax and enjoy it. Its your day and no one elses!! well, wait, ok, its the grooms days as well.....:)

Tami McTaggart said...

Ohhh congrats! That's so exciting! I hope you find yourself with endless love and devotion from here on out! Here's to a successful future hun <3

Fiorella's Closet said...

I would just say try to relax and enjoy that day to the fullest :)

Tara Quigley said...

Congratulations! I don't have any advice really besides go with the flow, accept help from others and be ready to compromise if something doesn't work out exactly the way you expected or wanted it to. :D
