Day TWO of Battle of the Betrothed

Today Seattle Bride and The Healthy Bride are kicking off the second day of Battle of the Betrothed down at Westlake Center and the competition is fierce! All eight of our hilarious, adorable, charming and all-around fantastic couples are pulling out all the stops to come up with the most creative solutions to the challenges before them.

Yesterday, couples competed in a toilet-paper-dress-making competition to win a Sally Crew wedding dress from La Belle Elaine's (with our fabulous assistant editor Michelle LaFrance—see above—standing in as a model for one couple), an amazing invite-crafting contest to win an invitation package from All About Weddings, a bouquet and boutonniere making contest for a free floral package from Midnight Blossom Floral Design, and then raced around the city—using only human power and public transportation—to top wedding-picture-locations to land a free photography package from Laura Totten Photography.

But it is today's competitions that are not to be missed! The contestants battle it out in a cake decorating contest, hair and makeup contest and a dance challenge, as well as the announcement of the top THREE couples who will compete next Saturday for the ultimate prize: A fantastic honeymoon package!

We've got great music from Event Success (recommended!), a warm tent and lots of seating down in Westlake Center. I hope you come down, say hello and check out the fun.
