Are you getting married in France? Come and join FWS

So who got engaged over the festive season? I am searching for more real life brides getting married in France between June 2013 and July 2014 to join real life bride Hollydawn and share their wedding planning stories.

There is no format, you can be planning a chic Paris wedding for 10 people, a large French country wedding for 120, a secluded Chateau weekend wedding, a mountain top snowy wedding or a glamorous wedding celebration in Monaco.  You can be young lovers or a mature couple celebrating love the second time around.  You can have a small budget and are planning lots of DIY touches or you can have a generous budget and are working with a wedding planner. Variety is the spice of life and I am looking for a wide variety of brides to share their journeys.

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.  Alternatively create your  mood board in Pinterest and send me the link. 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.

 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 blog post once-twice a month, 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 11th February 2013 so become a FWS Belle Bride and send your application to [email protected]

Looking forward to seeing your applications!
