We’re Saying, I Do! Photo Contest

It’s time for our exciting announcement!  Are you ready?

We’re throwing a contest!  A We’re Saying, I Do! photo contest, that is.

We’re giving away 2 tickets (valued at $100) to the Beyond Blu Bungalow Venue Tour at the Exploratorium in San Francisco.  Yup, you heard right!  You’ll get 2 tickets to the wedding event of the year!  To refresh your memory, the Beyond Blu Bungalow venue tour is happening on April 23rd, and is a super fun way to experience the Exploratorium, a unique wedding venue right by the water.  You’ll get to meet some of the Bay Area’s top wedding vendors for your big day and there will be delicious food, desserts, drinks, entertainment, a swanky gift lounge and even a wedding table designed by yours truly.

We’re super excited about the event, so we’re throwing a contest so one lucky couple can get a chance to go for free (you can even make it a date night).  So, I’m sure you’re asking what is this contest all about?

We love stories, and we want to hear your story.  Forget the something old, new, borrowed and blue.
We want to hear about the something YOU!

1) Sign up for an Instagram account (if you don’t have one).

2) Follow @mangomuseevents on Instagram.

We are encouraging participants to have both the bride AND the groom (or the bride and the bride or the groom and the groom) collaborate on this project. After all, this day is about celebrating your new life together.

In the comments of your Instagram post, please tell us why you are including this special something in your wedding. Share your story with us! How is it meaningful to you as a couple?
