I was lucky enough to attend the official launch of Jorge Manuel's 2012 "Upon a Star" contest, sponsored by Hitched! What a fun event and what a fabulous designer. Jorge Manuel is not only charming (and, um, a dreamboat), he is a super-talented designer with a passion for bridal fashion. His gowns are so breathtaking and unique; there is nothing cookie-cutter about these designs.
"Upon A Star" began as Jorge Manuel's desire to give one lucky bride the chance to win a completely custom creation to wear on her big day. The winning bride-to-be will receive a one-of-a-kind wedding gown made just for her (not the dress above) and will go through a completely couture experience-- attending muslin and gown fittings, and experiencing the joy of a stunning finished product.
The gown being given away this year, affectionately named "Eternal Flame" was designed by Jorge Manuel with the input of the Hitched team, and they could not be more thrilled with the result! This stunning gown is the perfect blend of chic and glamorous—just daring enough to make a statement on your big day without being over the top. Jorge Manuel has an incredible eye for detail and uses only the finest fabrics, so we are confident that the winner is in for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Entering the contest is easy, but contestants are limited, so be sure to hurry! The official "Upon A Star" application can be found by visiting www.jorgemanuelweddings.com. The contest winner will be determined by a combination of votes by the public and the judges, made up of members of the Jorge Manuel team and the Hitched ladies. So gals, what are you waiting for?
