From Sketch to Reality - The UPON A STAR Win A Couture Wedding Gown Come To Life

Drum Roll Please...The UPON A STAR Win A Couture Wedding Gown Contest Dress Unveiled!

It all started a couple of months back when the gals at Hitched, this year's retailer sponsor, and designer Jorge Manuel got together to create a one-of-a-kind gown for one very lucky bride. The UPON A STAR gown is a gorgeous 100% off-white Silk Taffeta and Silk Satin mermaid silhouette with French beaded lace. It took countless hours, pattern makers and a team of very talented seamstresses to make. The beading was mostly encrusted and done by hand. Truly a special gown for one very special bride.

We are now halfway through the contest submission deadline. The entries have been coming in from all over the U.S. for one very exciting reason. The "Eternal Flame" dress for this year's Upon A Star contest by designer Jorge Manuel has been the reason for beautiful heart warming stories of love and self-discovery in every submission we have received. See our blog post of the making of this gorgeous dress by clicking The Making of this year's Upon A Star Contest gown.

The submissions will only be accepted until March 17, 2012. So hurry and submit an entry if you are a bride-to-be who would love the win this gorgeous gown! Visit for full contest details and application requirements. If you have already done so then submit your application through the designer website.

As soon as the contest submission for entries comes to a close on March 17, 2012 a group of a panel of judges from Jorge Manuel and Hitched will pick 6 finalists. They will post to the designer's website where the public will be able to vote for their favorites. Making it into the 6 finalists already makes each of those entries a winner.

Jorge Manuel will be awarding each finalist with a custom veil or accessory valued at $450. The grand prize winner will walk away with the gorgeous gown seen on this blog and a free night stay at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington D.C.

It is sure to be a night of dream making when we announce the lucky bride at the UPON A STAR CELEBRATION PARTY at HITCHED in May. If you are a bride-to-be who can picture yourself winning and wearing the gorgeous "Eternal Flame" gown on your big day then hurry and visit the designer's website for full contest details and to apply!
