  5. I have been engaged for about 4 1/2 months (wow!) and am planning a fun vintage diy backyard wedding for next summer. Although I'm from So Cal, the images that keep inspiring me tend to be from Southern Weddings. I'm all about the mason jars, vintage tins, lace, lemonade, bbq, mix and match plates, borrowed antiques, etc. I'll even be wearing my grandmothers wedding gown from 1942! Also, my fiance's family was transplanted from the South in the 1930's, so that is definitely an important place to draw from. I haven't bought many wedding mags (thanks to all the fabulous blogs out there), but this one seems like it would be really helpful!

  6. I loooooooooove this site and the magazine! Pick me! :)

  38. I've never seen the magazine on the newstand, but I frequent the website. It's inspiring to find such creative ideas- especially when I'm planning a true southern BBQ picnic wedding. I love how they mix the old traditions with new trends and originality.

  39. Hello! I would love a copy of this magazine. My best friend's sister, Adair Howell, is on the cover, and she looks FABULOUS :) I am getting married in June and would love the chance to peek through this magazine for ideas, as well as the chance to see Adair in such a gorgeous magazine! Thank you!

  40. I am getting married in March of this next year and it will be a DIY(myself) wedding because I am working with a what you don't spend you can keep budget. I am making my dress and my flowers, it is the decorating I need help with.

I would love to have a copy to curl up with by the fire and read while I watch the snow fly so to keep my spirits up and focused on the big important (and hopefully sunny) days ahead!

    Thanks for considering me!

  43. I'm an Arkansas girl, and I'm in the throes of wedding planning. As much as I love and appreciate wedding blogs, especially this one!, there is still something special about curling up in bed with a magazine. And Southern Weddings is right up my alley. Thanks for the chance to win!

  48. After dating for 10+ years, my boyfriend (now fiancé) proposed on bended knee. I'm trying to plan a southern-style wedding in the midwest. No one knows what a true pig-pickin is here! I lived in NC for 14yrs and visit yearly because I miss the South so much. We are having a backyard, diy wedding on our farm. My biggest problem is I have too many ideas. I can't seem to make a decision and stick with it. Surely Southern Weddings can help me make it simple but heartfelt. Thanks!

  49. I dream of a wedding just like the ones they feature in this magazine. I haven't found my prince yet but once I do, by golly am I gonna have a Southern Wedding (even if I am from the Pacific Northwest)!! PICK ME :-)

  50. i read your blog every day, wedding blogs/magazines are a guilty pleasure of mine! i have to be prepared for the near future (though i make sure to hide what wedding magazines i have from my boyfriend, dont want to scare the poor man)
