It's Fat Tuesday! (Shout out to everyone enjoying Mardi Gras and Carnival all over the world.)
So let's get to it. I need your help. Don't worry, it's fun. I'm working on a project at work that invloves something I love: WEDDINGS. Sure I'm a semi-hopeless romantic but weddings have less to do with love than most folks think in my opinion. (People often confuse marriage with weddings.) However, I am smitten with the endless ways one can display their personal style through a wedding ceremony and reception, whether their budget is $500 or $500,000. Read the deets below and either submit your story and pics or pass on to your newly wedded friends and family. Many thanks in advance for your help.
ESSENCE.com is creating an exciting new feature and would like newlyweds from all over to take part. Were you and your beloved both divorced and cynical about getting remarried before you fell in love? Is your new hubby an Iraq vet? ESSENCE.com wants all these stories and more.
All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your husband's name, both of your ages, date of the wedding, city of residence and a 150 word description of your special nuptials and why they should appear on ESSENCE.com. Also be sure to include 10 to 15 photos from your big day.
Please note only weddings that have taken place in the last six months will be considered.
If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I'll get right back to ya.
