Beautiful (& free!) Baubles

A month ago, I entered a contest on one of my favorite wedding blogs, Weddingbee. The contest was sponsored by Tejani Couture Jewelry & each entrant had to tell them which Tejani necklace was their favorite. There was no "and why?" tacked on the end, but I added it to my answer in the hopes that it would help me win. Here is the necklace that I chose & why:

"I absolutely adore the entire Dainty collection, but the perfect compliment to my dainty, feminine, flowy dress would have to be Style # B0711. The drop pendant style, paired with the crossover-V neckline would be simply stunning."

A couple of days later, I was notified that I had won the contest!

These types of contests are a win-win-win for everyone involved. Tejani, as it directs hundreds of brides-to-be to their website; Weddingbee, if there was some sort of promotional sponsoship; and the winner (me), as these gorgeous earrings were just dropped on my desk today!

Pardon the big, red Clifford desk. Red is our architecture firms signature color ;)

I'm not sure if I'll wear them on my wedding day or not - I'll have to try it on with my dress to see if they are "too much" or not. I really haven't even thought of wedding day jewelry yet (note to self: Add to ever-growing list)! However, the next time I am at C's house, you'd better believe I will bring these babies with me to check it out!

The rep from Tejani also informed me that they are having a trunk show in Chicago February 27th - March 1st!

Have you won any contests or came across something for free that helped save your wedding budget?
