Are you a real Sacramento-area bride or recently-wed with cover aspirations?

We’re putting the finishing touches on the Winter/Spring 2011 issue which arrives at our offices next week (so excited!), and we’ll be able to announce our new cover model winner! 

But in the meantime, the contest has opened for the next issue — Summer/Fall 2011! The deadline to get your entry in is January 31, 2011, but don’t wait until the last minute to get your entry form (and photos!) in. Get moving now brides! 

Want to know more about the cover model contest?  Well, then, read on! 


Each issue of Real WeddingsMagazine features real local-area brides on its cover! 

Hundreds of real brides enter, and ultimately three are chosen. Those three real brides get to participate in a day-long photo shoot where they get the chance to vogue it up in front of the camera. 

All three of our real bride models will appear on one of our Real Weddings Magazine covers (like the Summer 2010 cover featured above with our cover brides Nicole, Sarah and Jillian) and then ultimately, one of our real bride models will be chosen as our cover model winner and appear on the cover of Real Weddings Magazine on her own (like the Fall 2010 cover featured below with our cover model winner Sarah). 

For the Summer/Fall 2011 contest, if you’re a local bride or a local just-married (cannot be married before June 1, 2010) and you’ve got cover aspirations, then you need to enter! Again, the deadline to get your entry in is January 31, 2011, so get movin’ toots!

If you’re going to enter…one word of advice, show us your personality on the answers to the questions — we love working with brides who have a lot of spunk, personality, humor and who are just darned cool girls. Be sure that your answers really reflect who you are! Oh, and don’t forget to include photos that really show your personality coming through as well! 

Also, be sure to read all of the rules to make sure that you’re eligible to enter and are game to participate! 

We cannot wait to see your entries so get them in soon!
