Winners will be announced the following week on The Broke-Ass Bride.

“I'm ecstatic to be offering such a stellar array of prizes,” LaRue says, “I wanted to give away practically a whole wedding's worth of prizes over a week, and break them down into separate but concurrent events, so people can pick and choose what they want or need to enter and win. I was a broke bride myself, so its thrilling to now give back to brides like myself out there, who are desperately stretching their dollars to make their own weddings dreamy and memorable. Many generous companies helped me to have a spectacular wedding within my budget, so its a meaningful way to honor the vendors, too. It's a win-win, a way to help everyone! What could be better?"
