WARNING - Hell might have just frozen over: I WON SOMETHING!!!!

For those of you without microscopic vision this says:

Wedding Paper Divas CONTEST Winner!

And the winner is..........

Michelle from {Starry-eyed Barefoot Bride}! "Many things can add a southern flair to a wedding, from the down home food to the backyard of a big 'ol mansion setting, and even the smaller touches like Mason jars used for drinks or floral arrangements. But the KEY thing that makes a wedding southern regardless of the setting or decor, is the one thing you can't find anywhere else in the world - Southern Hospitality! To me, this is a phrase that encompasses wonderful things like southern comfort (the feeling! Not the liquor!), sweet southern charm, et al. Its a feeling of being at home, and welcome as soon as you set foot in the door, regardless of where you are from or how many people you know at the event... all this and a little 'twang is what sets a southern wedding apart from anything else."

Congratulations! Thank you so much to everyone who entered. We loved so many of these comments that we may contact you about printing them in our print edition!

wpdlogo Southern brides know the importance of being gracious and saying thank you for those wooden plates. (Southern brides, you know what I mean! Wooden dishes are more valuable than Konigliche Porzellan Manufaktur place settings around these parts. Check out the woodenware collection from one of our fav local stores, {Artesana}) The F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S folks at {Wedding Paper Divas} have generously offered the lucky winner a set of 75 thank you notes from their gorgeous signature line.

As anyone who knows me, or any fellow Southern Wedding blog stalkers who recognized my name, know I am not a lucky person. I don't win contests! In fact, I almost never even bother listening to the winners cause I know it aint me! I was actually thinking of including that in my vows or toast; something to the effect of :"I enter raffles for the donation aspect, not because I have a shot at winning. When "winning" names are called, I am never paying attention because I know its not me; it never is. But I don't think I'm unlucky. I think everyone has an allotted amount of "lucky" points for life, and I have just been saving mine up. I never bothered to cash them in on raffles or lotteries. Instead, I choose to save my points and cash them all in on April 4th 2009 when I hear him say "I do.""

Guess I need to re-think that because I have 75 ROCKIN thank you cards headed our way!!

Ahh - and for anyone who hasn't yet, check out Wedding Paper Divas, they really have something for everyone.

EEEEKKKK!!!!!! :)
