The winner of the $100 grand prize will be selected on January 1st, 2011. He or she will be awarded a gift certificate that can be used on any purchase from BridesVillage.com throughout 2011.
One first place winner will be selected on December 10th, 2010 and will be given their choice of one of the personalized Christmas tree ornaments currently offered on BridesVillage.com. These personalized ornaments are available in dozens of holiday themes, styles, and colors. Nearly all the ornaments can be crafted with custom names or family names as well as a commemorative year.
Three second place winners will also be chosen on December 10th, 2010 and will each receive a unique Silver Mistletoe Ornament. This special edition Christmas ornament has long been a BridesVillage bestseller and is a real piece of mistletoe, hand-plucked and coated in solid silver. The silver coating is applied using a special process that preserves the original shape and every detail of the mistletoe sprig.
Visitors can enter to win up to once per day during the contest. No purchase or action is required beyond filling out the entry form and providing a valid email address. Winners of each prize will be contacted by email. Winners and other announcements will also be posted on the BridesVillage wedding sweepstakes webpage as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Although first and second place prizes will be drawn on December 10th, Ward said visitors can continue entering to win the grand prize through New Year’s Eve.
"We’re holding the drawings for the first and second place prizes two weeks early so we can ensure the winners get their ornaments in time to enjoy them for Christmas," Ward said. "But our customers have the entire holiday season to win the grand prize. Everyone can keep increasing their chances of winning right up to the very end of 2010."
Ward added, "This contest is the second we’ve hosted this year and makes a fun and exciting transition from 2010 to 2011. We’re making contests like this a regular feature on our website, so you’re going to see even bigger and better prizes throughout next year. It’s a neat way to engage our customers and to let them know how much we appreciate what they do for us."
