Mom Makeover Contest From Ming Wang – Enter for a wedding wardrobe for mom!

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

As a bride, shopping for your wedding gown can be nerve-wracking as you decide on the perfect one. But it’s always exciting! And whether it’s mermaid, v-neck or strapless, one thing is usually certain… your gown will be white (or a shade of white).

So what about mom? Not only does she have to find the perfect fit, but the perfect color as well! Whether it’s the mother-of-the-bride or mother-of-the-groom, all the ladies walking down the aisle want to look their very best for this event.

I’m excited to share this contest from Ming Wang for a MOM MAKEOVER before your wedding day.


The grand prize winner receives:  a Ming Wang bridal season wardrobe and day of beauty, which includes FOUR full looks meant to clothe the mother for all important wedding events including: engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner and the wedding, and a gift card to a local salon for a morning-of the wedding day of beauty. How fantastic is that??!!

There are also two runner-up winners will each receive a Ming Wang dress. AND there will be a little bonus from Well Rehearsed to help plan the rehearsal dinner.

Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom Makeover

Mom – the dress search is over! Just enter the contest on the Ming Wang Facebook page with a 100-word description on why your mom (or the groom’s mom) deserves to win. You can apply up until Feb. 7th and the winners will be announced Feb. 10th. And make sure to mention you heard about the contest from the Well Rehearsed blog!

The winners will be selected both from public vote and votes from wedding blogger judges (guess what – we are one of them!)

Good Luck!


Rehearsal Dinner Question: What happens at the rehearsal dinner?

What happens at the rehearsal dinner? What should I expect?

-Molly, Bride-to-be (San Francisco 2011)

First and foremost, the rehearsal dinner is a meal. But what really makes it a unique dinner is that your nearest and dearest friends and family are coming together to wish you well as you begin your married lives together. It’s the kick-off to your wedding and sets the tone for your celebration! The most notable traditional of rehearsal dinners are the toasts (and roasts) from your friends and family. As the father-of-the-bride, best man and maid-of-honor are slated for wedding day toasts, the rehearsal dinner “opens the mic” to other friends and family. This more intimate gathering is the perfect place to toast the couple and share heartfelt stories and well wishes.
