HOW TO ENTER THE KNOT REAL WEDDING AWARDS
Already generating tremendous buzz, The Knot Real Wedding Awards invites recently married couples and top wedding photographers, videographers, and wedding planners from all 50 states to upload photos, videos, and personal wedding websites from their 2007 weddings to a gallery on TheKnot.com.
With the thousands of creative entries from across the country pouring in--like a bride and groom whose first dance included an Irish step dance; a punk-rock circus themed nuptials; a couple who literally "races" to the alter as they say their vows during a marathon; a bride and groom pastry chef duo who made two gorgeous wedding cakes and all of the delectable desserts; and a videographer who turns a couple's wedding day into an actual movie trailer--the bar has definitely been set high for all the contestants.
The fun online application allows couples and wedding professionals to showcase extraordinary ceremonies, receptions, flowers, design details, personalized websites, and more creative ideas. It also provides inspiration for the millions of soon-to-be brides logging on to TheKnot.com each day.
All weddings are available at http://www.theknot.com/realweddingawards, where editors of The Knot, real brides, and wedding enthusiasts can vote for their favorites in the following categories:
