    I would love to win the wedding dress as i have been into the Mia Sposa shop on a number of occasions and I have always been so impressed by their service and beautiful dresses. They made the whole experience of trying dresses on very special and even gave my mam a hug when she cried!!

    Shes been dreaming
    ’bout her wedding dress
    since she was a little girl..
    white with lace, and flowing,
    accents made of pearl
    Mother watches daughter
    trying on the dresses….
    her daughters now a future bride
    and the older one confesses,
    she sees that little girl, again..
    her eyes sparkling with joy,
    playing bride in bedroom sheets
    and dreaming ’bout a boy….
    She grew up…she met a man
    who swept her off her feet..
    they fell in love,he proposed to her,
    and now her lifes complete…
    Daughter’s eyes are dancing, now..
    shes found the perfect fit…
    mother smiles proudly..
    This one’s surely it..
    Daughter turns to mother
    I love it.. what do you think…??”
    mother grins , she love it too,
    then gives the girl a wink..
    And in that very moment,
    mother sees the change occur,
    standing, now,in front of her
    a woman – not a girl.

    we have a very small budget, we are trying sooo hard to keep the cost down as we are savng for a house too. im making my own fowers, table decorations, favours, invitations etc..we are keeping everything as minimal as possible. The one thing i really want to splash out on is the perfect dress, but all the dresses ive tried on have been way over my budget, so to win something as fabulous as this not only would it make my day and make me feel like a million dollars it will give us extra money to go towards a nice cake or a professional photographer. 🙂 got all my fingers and toes crossed! 🙂 xxxx

    As a tomboy working in a mans world I am looking forward to being a Princess for the day in my dream dress!

    I visited Mia Sposa today and they were so friendly and helpful and made what is quite a stressful task of finding ‘The 1’ not a chore but rather enjoyable!

    It would make my Mums day to see her only daughter walking down the aisle in a beautiful dress supplied by Mia Sposa

    I would love to be the lucky bride and win a gorgeous dress because being engaged for the past 12 years, I need all the help I can get to finally tie the knot this year! I really want to be a princess bride and want to have a beautiful dress.

    I have waited over 5 years to get married as we had one thing after the other go wrong and now finally im getting my chance to go down the aisle wearing the one thing that will make my day extra special. I would love it to be a dress that will make people go ‘wow’ and even get a tear from my fiance!!! (or two!)
    keeping fingers crossed.

    Every girl dreams of her wedding day when she will feel like a princess because she will be marrying the man of her dreams. I have found the man of my dreams, my soul mate and my best friend and everytime I think of my wedding day I smile and feel a warmth in my heart as I know that day will be the day I become his wife 🙂 The first time he sees me walk into the church i want him to look at me and think wow this beautiful lady is going to be my wife and I am the luckiest man alive. Having a dress that makes me look like a princess would really help!!!

    Kate and William already tried to steal mine and my fiance’s glory by geeting engaged on the same day – the winner should most definitely be me so I can upstage her with a fantastic dress!! My fiance had the engagement planned as i got in from work. I had a late meeting on the 16th of November and so rather than getting in at 5 I made him wait until 7! Bless him! When we went to tell our friends and family we had the radio on in the car and it was full of talk about the royal engagement and for a split second I really felt they were talking about us! Although we arent getting married on the next day I still feel our wedding will be a royal affair!!

    Wow, what an amazing offer! I’ve had our wedding booked and sorted for a while now, deposits all paid with the help of hours of overtime and hard saving. The ONLY thing left to do i pick and order a dress . This is usually the first thing brides want to do but this thought fills me with sheer dread! I don’t know why, ok so i’m a bit of a tomboy and a bit overweight, work in sportwear and trainers and the thought of shopping for the biggest day of my life honestly does fill me with dread. I can’t picture myself in bridalwear, i avoid the conversation with my bridemaids and mother when they ask when we are going to look at dresses, i’m always ‘busy’ when my mum asks! I’ve picked up bridal magazines trying to get some inspiration but am sooo scared that i’ll look ugly and horrible in them! I even bravely ventured in a bridal shop last week when i was alone and just passing a shop trying to get over the fear and i just stood there crying, i felt so embarassed for the poor sales girl, she was sweet though and said it was quite common as it’s so overwhelming. I feel that this would help, as it would help our budget also so i wouldn’t have to ‘settle’ for a cheaper unsuitable dress. This dress would be perfect, and help me overcome my fears, so that i can look beautiful for probably the first time, wear make up, have my hair done and look my best for my best friend and soul mate on our wedding day. x

    I am just so excited about getting married because I genuinely never thought I would find anyone to spend the rest of my life with. Now I have an amazing fiance and we are having a fabulous time planning the wedding together. The only part I am nervous about is the dress as he can’t help me with that, so I would love the opportunity to win my dress and wow him on our wedding day. Good luck to all who enter the competition!

    I would love to win he dress to cheer myself up after a weeked full of wedding planing disasters – including being told about a whole slew of ID I need to get which now means we can’t have our original date. Oh, and it’s not like I can afford an actual wedding dress anyway 😛 I’m supposed to be getting married in September 2011 on a very tight budget, and it would be nice to feel like a princess at my own wedding. It’d also make up for the fact that neither of my parent will be there either!

    Mia Sposa has the most amazing wedding dress collection and anyone who wears a Pronovias dress for their big day will look like a princess. Acacia and Farnes are the most amazing dresses I have ever seen and it would be wonderful to wear one of these dresses on our big day. There’s so many good entries above I think its hard to compete! But I would be really honoured to win a dress from Mia Sposa. Good luck everyone and whoever wins is a very lucky lady 🙂

I never win anything, so it would be a pleasant surprise if I did!!!!! 🙂

    I have a booking with Mia Sposal for next weekend and have spoken to them several times at different wedding fairs. They are such lovely people and the dresses on the site are amazing.
    We are doing our wedding on a budget like most other brides and with a single mother and no father around, we are not getting any assistance from any family members. Every bride would like to look like a princess for a day and the wedding dress is the main feature. It would be lovely to be able to walk down the aisle with gorgeous mia sposal dress and to no have to worry about where we will have to deduct the extra money from somewhere else in our budget which we have tried so hard to save from.

    Every comment on here has it owns story and everyone deserves to win. Good luck for the people who have to choose, it will be difficult.

    we are getting married next year and i would love to win this dress as we have an extremely small budget and now we have just had our 1st baby the budget is getting even smaller and im hoping and praying we still manage to get married and i dont loose my deposits either by having to cancel, winning a wedding dress would just take away all the pressure of finding the money for a nice dress, so i can relax a little more and look forward to the wedding rather than dredding the wedding being cancelled due to finances xx

    She put her wedding-gown away
    As tenderly as one might close,
    With kissing lips and finger-tips,
    The petals of a rose
    Still held for the Belovèd’s sake—
    The loveliest that blows.

    She put her wedding-gown away
    The quiet place was all astir
    With vague perfume that filled the room,
    Cedar and lavender,
    Yet sweeter still about it clung
    The fragrant thoughts of her.

    She put her wedding-gown away
    Yet lingered where its whiteness gleamed
    As one above a sleeping Love,
    Oh, thus it was she seemed,
    Reluctant still to turn and go
    And leave him as he dreamed.

    My daughter is getting married in March next year. Weddings are emotional days but her father died when she was 12 so her brother is having to give her away. I have brought the two of them up as single mother and feel absolutely terrible that i am not able to help them financially. They have been saving up for over two years for their big day and my daughter is still skimping on the wedding dress as she feels the money can go to something else. I would love to win this dress so i can assist them in some way and give my daughter the beautiful dress she deserves.

    The hardest thing in the entire world is chosing a wedding dress. There are so many styles, and shades and everything, I don’t know how to chose. I would love to win because I really can’t afford to buy one of these exquisite dresses, but would really love to wear one. I woould take my mum with me to chose one, as she always gives me her opinion and is always right, and i want her to share in the special joy of chosing a dress that will make me feel perfect, and make my fiancee so happy, on our special day.

    I am so utterly desperate to win this wedding dress because I truly can’t afford one. I am thinking of going to a charity shop to get one, and I really don’t want to, not because they are used, but because none of them will suit me, they are so old fashioned! =( At this point this is my only option, and I really would love to wear something that looks amazing and suits me, not because its all I can afford =( I would be the happiest bride in the world if I won, and would never come down off te ceiling. It would be such an amazing joy to spend that special bonding time with my amazing mother at the mia sposa bridal store. Thank you, awesome Brides up North, I haven’t found a blog I love more than yours, and thank you Mia sposa <3 <3

    I wish i could explain just how much this would mean to me if I won. I dn’t think I can because even I don’t know the words to describe how desperate I am to win this dress so I can bring my dream wedding a little closer to reality. We have had a lot of setbacks recently in our families, and because of the costs we have to cover, it looks like we may not get married for a long time. I could never afford this dress without help, so I pray I get that help I need.
    God bless Brides Up North, and Mia Sposa, you will make my dreams come true <3

    I would love to win this dress for my daughter, we were delighted when she got engaged and offered to help her with the cost of her wedding by paying for her dress and whatever else we could afford. However, the day after she booked her wedding, my husband, her father, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease, a debilatating and terminal illness. Since then, its been very hard for me to continue working (I am self employed) and have had very little in the way of earnings, as my husband now needs full time care, so we can no longer give the help we first promised. To win this would be a godsend to us. My daughter has been so brave, I wish I could do more for her, as she is doing so much for us.

    Why do weddings always have to seem so expensive? it is such a shame that there is always so much material worth reflected in what should just be a magical day. I could happily spend thousands of pounds(if i had it) on a wedding day, but I would rather save up that money for when I will need it the most, like when we have babies. This dress would help with that 10000% because it would be a special gift. I love this site so much

    I just want to feel like me walking down the aisle. I’m not a princess or a model, just a lass living in lancashire hoping to make her man proud on our special day. Being able to wear a beautiful dress that makes me shine would be the white chocolate frosting on the spicy ginger carrot cake!

    this is one of the most special gifts you can give to a young and financially strapped couple, especially as all this royal wedding business really throws into light what they cannot afford. Thank you so much for being so generous

    This may seem like an odd entry but I am entering this competition for my best friend who is getting married in 2012. She is the most beautiful and kind person I have ever met and I want to do everything to make sure she has the most incredible day. As a bridesmaid I feel it is part of my duties to help her day be extra special in every way and this would be THE utimate wedding gift to her. Amy has the elegance and grace to really show case this dress as it is meant to be worn. I think it is wonderful that you are giving people the chance to own a creation like this. I know that if the satin shoe was on the other foot she would do the same for me. Friends forever <3

If I win, she will finally be put first <3

    My fiance deserves to wear this dress, because there is no one more beautiful or giving in the entire world. She tries so hard every day to make sure everyone is hapy and does anything to help those in need. I want to give that back to her and let her take her amazing mum with so they can chose the most beautiful dress for the most beautiful bride

    Why should it be me? It should be all of us brides to be really! Who shouldnt be allowed to look exactly how they want to on their big day? Maybe we should all slim to the exact same size then share it!!! If I win the dress I will do my best to pass it on to one of you lovely ladies afterwards!! After all, a true Northern girl always shares!!!

    Mascara smudged
    Straighteners mislaid
    Lipstick applied in ‘not the right shade’
    Giggling children, running amok
    Chocolate stains on a pretty pink frock.
    A stag still missing from the night before
    A chauffeur bangs loudly on hotel room door
    A phone call, a text, a shout of ‘Hurry!’
    A bride-to-be now caught in a flurry.
    Mother of bride adjusts fascinator
    Confetti is scattered: meant for later…
    Glass of champagne, to celebrate
    Toppled on shoes, caught ‘just too late’.
    Frenzied shouts, vicar on phone
    Bride insisting ‘please leave me alone’
    ‘What’s all the fuss? It’s only ‘nine’
    ‘We’ve still an hour, so all will be fine
    But then a shout above the rest!
    Father of bride, decidely stressed!
    ‘My princess you’re lovely
    But the fact remains
    You weren’t first in the queue
    When they handed out brains
    It isn’t ‘nine, it’s ten ‘on the dot’
    Last night clocks went forward and you bloody forgot!’

    We have been engaged for 8 years now and have finally saved enough for a limited budget wedding. I never dared dream of myself as a princess bride but looking at all of the wonderful dresses (outside of my budget) from mia sposa make me want to feel like a princess even if it is only for just one day.

    I would love to win my wedding dress. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with a condition which affects my ability to have children. I became incredibly depressed, as I’d always dreamt of getting married and having a large family like I’d grown up with. I have never been as low in my life. There were days where I reached rock bottom, and the whole time my fiance not only put up with me, but supported me, tried to comfort me, and in times where there was nothing else he could do – just held me. I swear he’s an angel sent to me to get me one of the hardest times of my life. I’m so excited to be married to him, but I want my wonderful fiance to see me and think I’m the most beautiful girl in the world, and those hard times were worth it. We’re on such a tight budget that I fear our wedding day may not be as ecquisite as we both imagined, and of course a dream dress would help 🙂

Good Luck Everyone & Happy Weddings 🙂 xx

    My fiance and i (and all who are due to be wed) are trying to plan the most amazing wedding possible. The dress, the flowers, the cake, the food, the music, the whole day needs to be perfect…a day to remember. For me though my day will only be perfect when i see my fiance walking down the isle dressed like a princess…a tear or two will fall because i know she will look so beautiful and i also know i will be with this princess for the rest of my life.
    Like everything the cost of the wedding is increasing with every magazine bought and the mother in law’s (to be) requirements..therefore seeing my princess on the day of our wedding in a Mia Sposa wedding dress would be a dream come true and an image that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
    Love you Claire …cant wait for June 2012 x

    Why i should win? I’d like to win obviously as im entering, however, i’ll let you decide if i should win. Im paying for my own college education and helping out the family where i can, my parents are not in a position to help me financially with that or my special day. So here is my submission with every hope that i become lucky enough to win a special gift for a special day and if i dont, i wish the woman who does win every moment of enjoyment with it, whoever she is, good on ya girl and all the best on your new life, congratulations xoxoxoxoxox

    The Child In Him

    I loved the child in him
    so innocent and sweet
    The mischief in his eyes
    the blush upon his cheek
    The tender way he spoke
    that showed me that he cared
    The touch of his warm hand
    that gently touched my hair
    The smiles that we shared
    that filled my life with glee
    For when I was with him
    I found the child in me
    <3

    Like so many brides to be, I’m carefully watching the pennies as I plan for my wedding. I thought about making my own dress but it brought back traumatic memories of textiles classes at school, so I’m hoping to either pick up a bargain in a sample sale or a preloved dress.

    After watching the Royal Wedding today and seeing how stunning Kate’s dress was, I did have a little pang, wishing that I could have “my very own dress” for my wedding. I have looked at the Mia Sposa and the CocoCouture collections and would love to win a dress that is as beautifully cut and as elegant as the one we’ve all admired today.

    Good luck to every one who enters and happy planning! X
