Day 13: A Grand Finale Giveaway

Well the day has come folks…

First off… Happy Anniversary to Luke & me! 😀 We have been together for 2 glorious years and now we have only 4 more months to being husband and wife 🙂

And now after 2 weeks of amazing celebrating with tons of free goodies, it is time for me to announce the last giveaway. When I was thinking about this finale I knew I wanted it to be really spectacular for you all… and the a light bulb went off.

So I today I present the sponsor vendor…

That’s right, folks! It’s ME 😀

So what am I offering you amazing readers? My services of course!

More specifically… I am offering 3 consultation sessions with me to begin/continue establishing your wedding design.

Session 1: We will work together on establishing the mood and for lack of a better word “theme” of your wedding. we will discuss colors, fabrics, font, era, lighting, everything that surmounts to your envisioned dream. Then I will use this brainstorming to create a custom Inspirational Palette Board like this…

When your board is perfect, I will have it produced as a gorgeous 5×7 print and matted so you can carry it with you in your wedding shopping and later frame it.

Session 2: We will work together in branding your wedding. That means creating a monogram, or slogan, or even a special logo that will carry through your design elements such as save-the-dates, invitations, and escort cards and set your wedding apart from anyone elses.

Here are a couple I have created for Luke and me…

Inspired by our Wise Impressions ring plate

Session 3: Combining what we have created in the last two sessions I will now design one wedding product for you. This can be invitations, save-the-dates, escort cards, table numbers, wall art… it’s really all up to you. 😉

Of course depending on how far along in the wedding planning you are each one of these sessions can be adapted to better fit your needs. I just wanted to show you all the possibilities 🙂

So please leave me a comment with a brief description of your wedding and I will announce the winner next Friday 🙂 Of course feel free to tweet @mismikado or blog for more entries.

And for anyone curious/interested in one of the above mentioned products just drop me an email at sebrina{dot}schultz{at} and I can give you all the info you need.

Can’t wait to read all your comments 🙂

Of course be sure to continue to check back daily for the remaining winners 😉
