Announces Free Bridesmaid Dress Contest

Dec. 9, 2006 – With the high cost of getting married when having a traditional wedding ceremony, many brides are struggling to find a way to have the wedding of their dreams without going into a large amount of debt. Among these potential costs are the dresses for the bridesmaid’s. While tradition stipulates that the bridesmaids purchase their own dresses, many brides are absorbing the cost of these dresses in order to ensure they have the dresses of their dreams worn by the bridesmaids in their wedding.

In order to help relieve the bride from the burden of paying for her bridesmaids’ dresses, has announced a new contest that provides up to six custom made bridesmaids’ dresses to the winner. Hong Kong based is an online store that specializes in creating custom made bridesmaid dresses. The company, which has been in business for eight year, has created thousands of bridesmaid dresses for bridesmaids around the world.

In order to enter the contest, the bride-to-be simply needs to write a short essay of 200 words or more that is related to bridesmaids’ dresses in some way. She must also be planning a 2007 wedding, though there are no restrictions when it comes to the bride’s country of residence. The exact topic is up to the discretion of the bride. “We want the brides to feel free to explore the topic of bridesmaids’ dresses in any way they like,” said Cecilia Tang, marketing manager. “Some possible topics include problems when it comes to arranging bridesmaid dresses, reasons why the bride feels she should be awarded the dresses, or an interesting idea about bridesmaid dresses. We would be more than happy to see even more creative ideas than these.”

Contest entries must be submitted no later than January 31, 2007 in order to be eligible. Contest winners will be notified on February 14, 2007. For more information, visit ( or
