Best Real Wedding Blog

So the results are in... and the big poo poo is that FH and I didn't' win our honeymoon to St. Kitts. We had an amazing lead the whole week and was just outdone in the last 2.5 hrs of the voting. It was pure craziness but it taught us one thing... we have some REALLY awesome and amazing family and friends - both blogosphere friends and real life friends. Through Facebook, Twitter, email and blogs... we had masses of people letting us know they were rooting for us and really - what better feeling is that. And really, my little blog... nominated as a finalist from hundreds of AMAZING blogs - that was another big perk.

So we competed against a lot of GREAT blogs... some i never even knew of, so this contest also enlightened me b/c there are some amazing blogs out there and i will continue to read them to help inspire me all the way through my wedding and beyond... The Relentless Bride did end up winning the Best Real Wedding Blog Category (this was by how many clicks we got, so all it says is my army of voters were relentless and kept me in the race) but I have to mention the three other blogs in this category b/c they are pretty awesome. inspirational. and a must-read! With This Ring, iDiY and Peaches by Plum (Editor's pick)

I also wanted to give huge shout out to my fellow Weddzilla ladies.

    (sorry to hear about the Honeymoon one, but this is an honor too, right????)

    Not exactly sure how many times I voted..., but you could vote as much as you liked... which in retrospect may not be such a good idea on WeddingChannel's part.
