Since I started French Wedding Style 6 months ago, I have been honoured to feature so many beautiful real life weddings from french country, glamorous Parisian elopements to rustic glam in the South of France. The real weddings are a fantastic source of inspiration for destination brides to be, or if you are like me those who love weddings and the french culture.
But what about all the activity and planning that goes into a destination wedding before the big day? As any newlywed or wedding supplier knows the wedding day is the big finale and one of the most beautiful days of your life, but the journey to get to the wedding day can be fraught with trials and adventures all of their own.
So to share in this journey to wedded bliss, I am looking for real life brides who are planning their wedding in France to share their adventures on French Wedding Style Blog and became the first Belle Bride. If you would like the chance to apply to be a French Wedding Style Belle Bride read on.

Although you can be planning any type of wedding in France, in order for us to participate in your adventures I am looking for brides or grooms getting married between September (amended from November) 2012 and December 2013.
So what do you need to do to apply?
In order to apply to become an FWS Belle Bride you need to submit at least a 250 word summary of your wedding plans, along with an inspiration board demonstrating the style of wedding you are aiming for and a picture of you and your fiance.
Don’t worry you don’t have to be an artistic genius to put together your inspiration board, use any programme that you like as long as you can attach it to your submission as a jpeg or png file. The mood board should contain stylistic elements including colours, venue inspiration, fabric swatches or decoration details that visually demonstrate the type of wedding that you are planning.
I will review all submissions and a short list of couples will be featured on the blog for you the readers to choose from. Please remember all summaries and mood boards will be featured on the blog so please do not include any elements that you want to remain private.
I am looking for a Belle Bride who will honestly share their wedding planning experiences the good, the bad and the down right stressful in a monthly blog post- so before applying please make sure that becoming a FWS Belle Bride is for you. The chosen bride and groom will also appear on the blog in a special real wedding feature.
The closing date for entries is 27th May so become a FWS Belle Bride and send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to receiving them.
