Win a copy of Southern Weddings Magazine


Southern Weddings was one of the first blogs I began to read when I embarked upon this blogging world, and it remains a favourite. There is something about those sweet southern traditions that is very appealing and so endearing. I’ve bought every issue of their incredible magazine – one that I can only aspire to – and the lovely ladies from Southern Weddings were kind enough to include a few extra copies with my delivery of V5. Trust me this is one magazine packed to the brim with incredibly beautiful inspiration!

Apologies to all my overseas readers but this one is just available for New Zealand readers due to the high cost of posting a magazine. Also please note that the person responsible for getting these through customs seems to have poured a glass on water on the box so they’re just slightly damaged. But trust me this in NO way takes away from the beauty of each page… and they’re completely readable.


Simply leave a comment here telling me what traditions you will be incorporating into your wedding day?

    I’m planning on a veil, a white dress, my dad giving me away and not seeing my husband to be the night before (which might be a bit tricky as we’re staying on site at the venue!) :)
    Oh and of course – something new, something blue, something borrowed and something old, which I’m trying to get from my family. My dress will probably have my mother’s wedding dress lace, which has also been used for two other weddings in the family!

  2. Gabi says:

    We are doing a traditional church wedding which a lot of my friends have shied away from. I would love a copy f this magazine! Thank you for the fun giveaway!

    I will be using my late NZ grandmother’s brooch on my wedding bouquet.

    My irish grandmother will be playing the organ at our church ceremony.

    We will be serving my irish mother’s special home made brown bread.

    The favours will be home made jam made by my mother in law

    The DIY craft will be made by my mother in law’s craft group (doily buntings etc)

    We will have displays of all the wedding photos of both sides of the family displayed.

    Would LOVE a copy of Southern Weddings – I am a fan of theirs on Facebook!

    I will have my grandmothers rosary beads wrapped around the bottom of my bouquet :) .. Thanks!! :) :)

  5. Lisa says:

    Instead of tossing my bouquet I will be gifting it to my mother for her to enjoy.
    I am also giving my little flower girl a hand embroidered hankerchief for her to keep until her own wedding day so she has ‘something old’ to carry.

  6. Claire says:

    I have a sapphire engagement ring – so there is my blue. I am going to wear the bracelet my late grandmother bought me for my 21st – something old. my mother collects vintage handkerchiefs – something borrowed. lastly my dress will be something new!

  7. Kate says:

    I’m not incorporating many traditions… rather making some of my own! The traditions I am honouring are simple- I won’t be staying with the groom on the evening, and of course I have the ‘something new’ (my whole ensemble), but aside from that I have tried to put my own twist on tradition. I get married in less than a month and I am so darn excited to see how it turns out. Ours is as close to a southern wedding as you can get- we’re having it at my future in-laws barn! Would love to win a copy :)

    we’re getting married in april and planning to combine some sweet family traditions (jewellery from my mum and grandma as well as their tried and tested wedding cakes) with ‘a bit of fun and adventure’. i can’t wait and would love to get some inspiration from southern weddings, it looks so beautiful!

  9. tessa says:

    incorporating lots of family traditions, including photos of my parents and my fiance’s parents cutting their cake beside our cake, photos of all of our sets of grandparents displayed, something new, something blue, something borrowed and something old, which will be primarily family items. Using passed down heirlooms as cake toppers from grandparents and my closest aunt’s cake server and knife to cut our cake with :)

    among other things. we’re also doing a groom’s cake, not seeing each other until the wedding (not even for photos!) and thus not staying with each other the night before the wedding.

I am having our wedding date sewed into my dress in blue thread and using my dads hanky as needed throughout the day. I reserved my hotel room so we will not see each other the night before.

  11. Erica Nogueira says:

    Found a beautiful chapel in Pomfret,CT. Not seeing him the night before! Also, plan on a white dress and bouquet toss:)

  12. Christina says:

    My mother’s engagement ring diamond is incorporated in my ring. Also, we will be having a Jewish wedding, so there are tons of traditions there!
