A month ago, I launched a gorgeous competition for one of my readers to win a bespoke bridal bouquet, hand tied by the lovely Helen of Bels Flowers and worth up to £200.

Well, you better have a gorgeous gown lined up to match*…

    June 27, 2011 | I’m a big fan of brides up north and have been watching it grow over the past few months. It’s great to be able to go to a northern site for help and ideas. I hope it’s not to late to enter, I don’t ever win anything but thought it’s worth a try if it’s not to late! Thanks for the opportunity!

Many congratulations you lucky thing (and thank you for the lovely comments! *blush*). Contact me to claim your beautiful blooms.  This might be the bouquet toss off the agenda!

.

Have a fabulous summer evening Brides Up North.  Fire up those BBQs!

    I was under the impression that this was NOT a random draw, as the comment in the original competition was this:

    *The winner will be selected by Brides Up North and Bels Flowers. The judges’ decision is final. No cash alternative. Delivery charges not included.

    Also, THIS is the stated closing date :
    The competition closes on 7 June 2011.

    So why was her comment even allowed to win?
    Sorry to seem quite brash and a bit bitter about this, but I don’t think it is fair to change the rules and not let anyone know, then chose a winner who should not have been allowed to win in the first place! I now don’t feel that any of your previous competitions have been run fairly either, as what is to say any of those winners were chosen fairly either?

    Just incase you need to see your original post and the details just copied off it:

    I’m really quite disappointed and angry that you have no regards for your own competition rules, and for the feelings of the brides who follow you avidly and as such manage to comment within the GIVEN time frame.

    Hi Jenny

    Thank you for reading Brides Up North and for your comment. 

    I am sorry that you feel this way about the competition. Unfortunately the closing date of 7 June 2011 was posted in error. All competitons on Brides Up North are generally open for 1 month, as was the case here. Apologies for that.

    With regard to the way in which the winner was chosen it was decided to draw this at random. We felt that this was fair.

    I am happy that you have been a previous winner with Brides Up North. Mandy emailed you to claim your prize and copied me in. I will send you another copy of this by email.

    I hope that you enjoy your fabulous prize and continue to support Brides Up North.

    Congratulations on your forthcoming wedding.

    Julia
