Free wedding giveaways 2017
If you’re looking for new 2017 wedding contests to help you cut costs on your wedding day, here are my favorite resources.
Wedding giveaways on social media
Twitter is an excellent resource for finding new wedding contests to enter. New giveaways pop up all the time. It’s a good place to check weekly. Search Twitter for wedding contests and giveaways with phrases like “bridal contest” “wedding contest” “wedding giveaway” and “free honeymoon”. Find out about new wedding contests on Twitter by following @sipbitego and @weddingcontests.
Find Instagram wedding contests with hashtags #weddingprize #weddinggiveaway and #bridalcontest.
Enter wedding expo contests
This isn’t a myth. The odds are pretty decent for wedding expo contest. About 25-50% of vendor booths have entries to win free products or services. In-person contests are great for picking up stationary in particular. The first wedding expo I attended paid for itself. I won 100 free gourmet cupcakes from St. Cupcake in Portland.
Before the event, print out address labels with your name, phone number, email and wedding date on them. This is usually all the info the entry forms request. You’ll be able to fly through the wedding expo while entering every contest you like.
Many wedding expos also run separate online contests before the event, so check there too.

Wedding gift registry contests
Gift registries regularly run contests to incentivize brides to sign up. Big companies like Macy’s offer high-ticket items like Kate Spade dinnerware. If you’re going to register anyways, might as well enter through a wedding registry contest. Search the store name + registry contest to find ones to enter.
Whether you’re always a winner or have yet to score something big, it’s worth entering wedding contests. Check back for updates on wedding contests and giveaways.

This sounds really interesting. Wedding contests and giveaways this year have everything. Since buying everything for a wedding can be quite stressful, I’m going to enter a few. Don’t need them just yet but maybe some day soon. I also joined your email list!
I hardly enter into competitions because I hardly win. But it is worth a try for some of the bigger wedding contest items, like honeymoons. Less people are probabaly entering too.

I entered contests when I was engaged and actually won a few. Great memories.

I got engaged in January and our wedding is not planned until mid-next year – so needless to say I have lots of time still to check this out. Thank you!
Great info for engaged couples. As a wedding planner, I love being able to suggest giveaways to my clients.

Thanks for sharing this cool giveaways. We’re already married but we could always go for a big renewal ceremony for free.
I LOVE giveaways! I entered a few during my engagement period, it was very fun! Didn’t know about finding them via Twitter though, I’ll have to share that with engaged friends!
Better persuade the boyfriend to get me a ring sharpish so I can start entering all these competitions!!
