Last year I interviewed author Valerie Bowman about her experience on the TLC show, “Say Yes to the Dress.” (You can read the blog here) While Valerie couldn’t give any spoilers away, the show finally aired on January 31st. Valerie was just adorable and they showed her bookcovers (that part went way too fast) and emphasized that she wanted a dress just like her character.
Personally, I liked the first dress shown, but you’ll have to watch it when TLC reruns it (no date given yet). The episode is called, “By the Book.”
Meanwhile, Valerie has done something I think is amazing and that is to give away the dress she picked to one very lucky reader. Here’s what she says on her website:
Now for the really fun part! I’m GIVING AWAY the dress! Yes, that’s right! My strapless Monique Lhuillier wedding gown is up for grabs! I just can’t bear to think of it sitting around in my closet having no fun!
To win, all you have to do is sign-up for my newsletter (if you haven’t already) and send me an email telling me why you would like the gown! Do *you* want it? Do you have a daughter, granddaughter, friend, or sister who would like it? And yes, I’ll cough up the size when you email me.
I’ll pick one lucky winner from the emails on 4/29/14, the day The Unexpected Duchess comes out.
The winner will be announced in my 4/29/14 newsletter! (You can find out more here)
How incredible is this! Everyone has to know someone who needs an incredible wedding dress. If you win, be sure to let me know. Congratulations Valerie! You did a terrific job and were a great bride.
