Proposal Contest
Posted: Feb 14, 2019

Share your engagement story! In the spirit of Valentine’s Day this month, our friends over at Promises & Lace are hosting a heart warming contest until February 28th for a chance to win $500 to their bridal boutique.

Promises & Lace, Burlington ON  – “We hear the most beautiful and thoughtful proposal stories all the time in the store. We wanted to be able to add to the celebration and make this moment even more special for one lucky bride to be.  We have asked that brides send their engagement stories to ourengagementstory@promisesandlace.caby Feb. 28th. We will select our favourite 5 stories and have the public vote for a winner. Voting ends March 7th and the winner will be announced March 8th.  We ask that they also follow @promisesandlace on instagram, like the contest post and tag a friend in the comments. 

We have received the most amazing stories. From romantic getaways to private family moments every story is so special we don’t know how we will narrow it down to 5. All the stories are very different but, at the end of every one, they share how in love, happy and excited they are. ”

“I can’t tell you what he said in the heat of the moment, but I know I’ve never felt more joy in my life. Of course I said YES!”  -Veronica P. 

“I don’t even remember saying yes! I automatically kissed him and the rest was history! “ -Rita 

“In the most shy voice and with the cutest, goofiest smile on his face he asked me, “Babe, will you marry me?”.  I was so surprised and caught off guard I started crying and saying yes! “- Sarah M
