26 Aug Personal Wedding Story Winners Announced
Congratulations to our Personal Wedding Story Contest winners!
We want to thank all of the participants who shared their heartfelt stories about how PersonalizationMall.com has played an important role in their engagement, weddings, anniversary and other romantic milestones. Everyone on the PersonalizationMall.com team knows that each gift we create is a thoughtful and lasting keepsake that is going to put a smile on its recipient’s face but we are always so excited to hear actual stories from gift givers and gift recipients.
We were overwhelmed by the positive response to this contest and choosing just three winners from all the entries was truly difficult. After careful consideration, we are happy to present the winning submissions:
Drum roll please …
Our first place winner of a $200 prize is Taylor from Harleysville, PA!
Taylor shared the story of how her husband proposed to her in her favorite spot in the world with two PersonalizationMall.com champagne flutes, like our Mr. and Mrs. Collection© Personalized Flute Set, that he had engraved to say “Our Engagement July 3, 2009” (How brave to have them engraved before she said yes!).
Taylor and her husband also used our Bride & Groom Crystallized Swarovski Flute Set (pictured)on their special day, along with their own personalized Wedding Party Characters© Personalized Platter which they received as a bridal shower gift and still display in their home today.
The best part of the story is how Taylor unknowingly almost put a wrench in her husband’s thoughtful planning! You can read what happened by clicking here for the whole story.
In second place was Shelly from Antioch, TN who won $100 for her touching story!
Shelly and her husband had just started dating when she was going through chemotherapy for breast cancer and he was about to be deployed to Afghanistan.
Before he left Shelly knew he was “the one” and custom made a PersonalizationMall.com Our Special Moments Personalized Photo Box (pictured) to say “Have I told you lately that I love you” so he could think of her while he was away.
She continued to send him pictures of herself so he could see how her hair was growing back and he was thrilled that he could still be apart of her healing process even though he was so far away.
He returned from Afghanistan in December and they were married in June!
And last but certainly not least, our third place prize of $50 went to Beatriz from Bel Air, MD!
Beatriz was about to celebrate her 37th wedding anniversary with her husband John and was looking for the perfect gift.
Her husband would always say “please don’t buy me anything because I have you as my wife and that is all I’ll ever need.” Beatriz was touched by his kind words but still wanted a gift for her husband so when the pocket watch she had previously given him broke and they couldn’t find anyone to repair it she came to PersonalizationMall.com for help.
She found the Herrington Engraved Silver Pocket Watch and was happy to see that she could make the gift special by having it engraved.
She personalized it with lyrics from “their song” and when she gave it to him on their anniversary, he was so overjoyed with it and the personalized engraving that she thought she saw a tear come to his eye!
We were so touched when we read how she felt: “I love the fact the watch is with him every day to remind him of how much I love him; it’s like my voice is captured in his pocket.”
Congratulations to all of our winners and thank you for all who submitted your wonderful stories! You can read all of the entries in their entirety by clicking here.
