A Hot Pink Petticoat Giveaway

Happy Monday! Did you watch the Canada vs. USA hockey last night? The BF and I watched at a nearby Irish pub. The BF is a good ol' SoCal boy, doesn't know much about the great Canadian sport. However, since it's the Olympics, and his country is playing against my country, well, let's just say he got very animated. I called the US's first goal 'lucky.' Their second goal, I swore very loudly. By the 3rd goal, I sold out the BF to a pub of angry Canadians - I pointed to him and declared very loudly, "He's AMERICAN!!!!!!!!!!" Lucky for the BF, he didn't get beat up. ;) Though I can tell you that I debated letting him sleep on the couch last night.

Anyways, let's get back to business, shall we? I'm super excited to announce our A Hot Pink Petticoat Giveaway. Intrigued? I'll let Alison, the mastermind behind this Toronto-based event planning company, tell you what A Hot Pink Petticoat is giving away.......

Wow! Hot Pink Petticoat has such a great blog. I would be thrilled to have a consultation with her. My fiancé and I are getting married in October, and have most of the big details nailed down already (venue, photographer, DJ, etc.). What we would appreciate help with are the little details that add style and flare to the wedding - without bursting the budget.

What is still up for grabs is transportation, invitations, decor for the venue (we are considering not decorating the church), and the give away (fiancé is Italian, and I have no experience in that area). Also, we need some guidance with the bouquet toss and the garter - I am against it, but I think that is a battle that I will be losing...

Thanks for this contest! Oh, I am following on Twitter - I am @TalkingColleen

thanks for letting me know about the giveaway (and the comments issue!)

I'll definitely post about it and pass it around. I'll be back in Southern Ontario in June, so count me entered!

I'll tell everyone I know in Most of my crowd is already married but one of them must know someone who is engaged!

Colleen said...

This is my second comment for the follow on Twitter

BEL said...

I guess I should tell you why i need the consultation! We're really trying to do most things DIY, which can be difficult and overwhelming when you've never planned an event before. I'd love to get her opinion on how everything will come together - to make sure I'm not over-doing things or forgetting something with a lot of impact!
ps. I commented on her blog too!

Oooh, I would love to win! I'm busy planning my girlfriend's bridal shower, my own baby sprinkle (for second baby-to-be in May) and would love to organize a Toronto blogger meetup! Sounds fabulous!

I would love to win this for my girlfriend who is getting married in October. This is the first marriage for both her and her fiance and they are over 45. Most of the wedding guests will be older family members however the age range will be from 1 month to 90. The wedding is being done on a tight budget but with great taste. This would be fabulous to win to help her out with the planning and to save her fiance from having heart palpitations!

Thanks for the great opportunity!

My best friend is getting married this year and I would love to win this prize for her! She just spent the last few months on an exhaustive search for an inexpensive but gorgeous GTA venue, and now has no idea what to do about the decor, etc Nothing has been started. She's completely open to ideas. Help me, help her. Please. :)
