Giveaway: $500 Gift Certificate to Emma Parker Diamonds (Ends 3/15)

I remember getting engaged like it was yesterday ... mostly because it didn't happen all that long ago. I was so happy, started crying a little, said yes, kissed Pete, and then, before he was even off his knee, said, "Can I see the ring?"


Regardless of what the ring looked like, I was going to say yes. But it's something I wear all day every day (except when I'm in the shower, washing dishes, or putting on lotion).

The ring is important. The guy, of course he's the most important, but the ring follows closely behind.

Rings can get expensive though, so here at A Bride On A Budget, we're going to help one lucky person save a bit on that. One person will win a $500 gift certificate to Emma Parker Diamonds, good towards the purchase of any Engagement Ring Setting and center stone combination, or $250 towards any empty setting, meaning without a center stone.

I would love to win this. I've been checking out the site and the rings are gorgeous. My wedding band is already picked out because it fits like a puzzle piece with my engagement ring (it's a bypass cut, so a flat band won't sit against it).

This giveaway starts now and is open to US residents who are 18 or older. It ends at 11:59pm EST on March 15, 2013. The winner will be contacted via the email in the Rafflecopter and will have 24 hours to respond before another winner may be selected.

To enter, leave a comment on this post letting me know: What is your ideal month to get married? Then, fill out the rest of the entries in the Rafflecopter.

Good luck!

  143. To me, the perfect month to get married in would be July, not only because of the warm, pleasant weather, but also because most of the guests invited would have the time to actually make it to the event, given the fact that most of them take time off work then.
