The wedding gown experts behind Gabriella New York and the bridal stylists behind Merci New York are teaming up on a Sunday-afternoon event in early May—and we've got tickets for a lucky Racked reader and guest. If you win, you'll be one of 100 brides who get to meet one-on-one with vendors, try out hair and makeup from Paul Labrecque, and decompress with mini-massage sessions from Exhale. (What? Wedding planning is stressful!) You'll also be able to shop bridal accessories from lines like Marchesa and Jenny Packham at a 10% discount.
The event takes place Sunday, May 6, from noon to 5pm. It's called Beauty, Baubles, and Bubbly, which leads us to believe champagne will also be involved. If you'd like to attend, email the story of your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org before Wednesday at midnight. We'll pick our favorite, run it on the site on Thursday, and give two tickets to the winner.
