WinAWeddingDress

Today I am so excited to announce a very very big competition!

I recently wrote about the brand new designs coming out of this family owned company– the family who brought Henry Roth (Henry Weinreich is the mentor on Australia’s own Project Runway!) and Michelle Roth to the world!

Now they’re back, designing a fresh new range for Henri Josef website and they’re partnering with Polka Dot Bride to give away one of their gorgeous wedding gowns to one lucky Australian bride to be!

What’s The Prize?

A gorgeous wedding dress by Henri Josef website. A strapless gown with a lightly embellished bodice with Swarovski and fresh water pearls cinches in waist and flows out to a soft taffeta skirt with tulle inlay and soft back sweep. Deliciously divine! The dress comes in White, Ivory, Gold and in sizes 2-30. The gown is valued at $AU1400 and will be in your choice of White/White, Ivory/Ivory or Gold.

How Do I Enter?

This competition is all about inspiration boards! Inspiration boards are one of my favourite things in the wedding world. You can pull together every element of a fabulous wedding to create a real feel for the event. Check out any wedding blog and you’ll see plenty of these- you can check out previous Polka Dot Bride boards here.

To win the dress you must create an inspiration board around the gown. Rustic or formal, country or city it’s up to you! If you’re not an inspiration board kind of girl, we’re also going to accept ‘written’ versions. Describe the setting of the wedding, tell us the mood- tell us a story! Your entry must be emailed to win@polkadotbride.com.au by 12am Australian Eastern Standard Time, Monday the 2nd of June 2008

Once the close date has passed, Polka Dot Bride readers will be asked to vote on their favourite entry. The three entries with the highest votes will be passed onto Henry Weinreich who will choose the winner!

How Do I Make An Inspiration Board?

You can make a board using any graphics program like Photoshop or Paintshop. A very easy way is to use an online tool called Mosaic Maker where you can upload your pics and create a simple but effective board. Otherwise there is a fantabulous tutorial written by Mrs Lemon at Weddingbee using Photoshop, a collage creator over at flickr tools and an easy drag and drop board creator at Polyvore

Here are your images to play with. Your board or story does not have to include all the images. It does also not have to incorporate orange flowers as seen with the model. Please credit all sources (I.e instead of ‘Google images’ try and find the exact source) and link to them. If in doubt, it’s best to leave it out!

So here’s the gorgeous dress that is up for grabs! (and the images you can use- the board must contain at least one of these!) You can also see the gown on the Henri Josef website.

    I am looking for the white-on-white polka dot material, as close to the Michelle Roth ‘Maya’ tea-length wedding dress as possible, so I can make my own dress. I fell in love with this dress but it’s out of my price range. Do you know of any places you can direct me that I can, perhaps, purchase the fabric? Also, do you know where I might find this dress for sale used? I have looked and looked online but I can’t find anything. Thank you very much.
