Matrimony Monday

Today is known as Matrimony Monday because 35-40% of engagements happen at this time of year in the U.S. and the newly engaged jump online to start planning.

Last year, I nervously went to work where I flashed my new bling to my work friends and had a completely distracted day at the office. Truth be told, I didn’t do any work that day. Instead, I tested the limits of the internet filter and called friends and family to share the news that I was engaged. I’m pretty sure my office mate was not happy with me.

To reward new brides-to-be, OneWed is hosting the ultimate giveaway for one lucky future bride: the “Off-the-Chart” Wedding Giveaway, with nearly $15,000 worth of wedding day essentials. Couples can enter simply by creating their own Wedding Pre-Party ( and inviting friends and family to join.  For every invitation successfully accepted by a guest, the couple receives an additional entry to win.

That’s a lot of money folks! I created a page on and it is a fun way of organizing your wedding info and giving your guests the opportunity to “meet” before the wedding. Good luck!


Win a trip to the USVI

A quick lesson in blogger relations before I give you the goodies. Say you are a PR person and you want to inform a blogger about a contest to win a trip. Don’t copy all the contest details and then paste them into the comments section of a blog. Instead, maybe write a quick note  about the contest and email it to the blogger. That way is so much more personal and the blogger will appreciate it. If they are interested they will write about it or tuck it away in their pocket for a rainy day topic (a quick shout out to Amy K. for always getting this right!).

On that note, here is an excellent opportunity to win a trip to the U.S.V.I – your choice of St. Croix, St. John, or St. Thomas for six nights courteous of Johnson and Johnson.

Here’s the deets:
