Brooklyn Bride was originally started way back when because there was a lack of modern inspiration out there in wedding-land. Oddly enough, it used to be easier back then to find architectural, streamlined goodies, but not so much anymore. So, that’s why we’ve teamed up with Newlywish to host a contest to find amazingly modern tablescapes! The winning team* (or just winner!) takes home $500 worth of products from the dining section of Newlywish!
Here’s the deets:
+ We are looking for modern tablescape designs – these can be indoor or outdoor, any size or shape table, its really up to you. The key point is the design of it MUST BE MODERN.
+ Anyone can enter as an individual or team (*if you are entering as a team, you will be splitting the prize), vendors, brides or grooms alike.
+ You’ll need to send 15-20 professional quality photos at 600 pixels wide, 72 dpi, along with a brief writeup about your inspiration. Any photos with watermarks will not be used. All photos will be credited to the photographer.
+ Include the names and websites of all your team members, and a list of materials and links to sources used. Please include any directions for any possible DIY projects you may have done.
+ Submit entries to brooklynbride [at] gmail.com including all the information above with the subject line TABLESCAPE CHALLENGE. All submissions must be received by 11:59pm APRIL 15, 2011. Submissions received after the 15th will not be eligible.
+ Our favorite submissions will be posted throughout the week of April 18 and a panel of guest judges will determine the winner to be announced Monday, April 25, 2011.
+ Submissions cannot be posted or tweeted until published on Brooklyn Bride. Any sneak peeks released before the contest is over will deem that entry ineligible.
+ Have questions? Leave a comment below and I’ll try to answer any questions you might have.
Well, I think thats it for all the details, so go forth and be modern! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Since last Friday was silent for For Japan With Love (at last count they’ve raised over $53,000!), I wasn’t able to announce the winner of 2 tickets to attend New York Magazines Wedding Event, so without further ado, the winner is #47 JENN! Congrats!
