After Months and Months Of Planning It Comes To An End Tonight!

Jorge Manuel and his team start preparing for the annual UPON A STAR contest every October. It takes a lot of hard work to prepare for the contest. There is a certain emotional connection to it since so much energy and time is put into it. The process of finding the most deserving contestant consists of reading through hundreds of entries and assigning a point system to each contestant. A board of judges deliberate sometimes on end in narrowing them down to just six. This year's six contestants are already winners -- winners of the heart! Their stories are motivating and inspiring. A true testament that if you find true love anything is possible! The UPON A STAR contest is all about making dreams come true.

Designer Jorge Manuel tells us what really inspired him to start the contest.

"Growing up in a humble home I saw it first hand when my own sister married. She was in love with a dress my parents simply couldn't afford and she settled for the next best thing. I wanted to make a contest where I can give that bride the one dress she truly loves and making it accessible to her regardless of her wedding budget," explains the designer.

The six finalists have all gather over 2000 votes in the past 2 weeks. Sadly, our contest must claim just one winner and tonight the tallies closes at 12 midnight. Visit if you have not already and meet the final six in the running for the UPON A STAR wedding gown. Read their motivational and inspiring stories and vote for your favorite! But, like in the fairy tales you will only have until midnight to make it count!

To all the finalists that entered we wish you good luck and may the best applicant win!

Winner will be announced at the CELEBRATION UPON A STAR party at HITCHED on  May 18, 2012. If you are in the area and would like to attend please RSVP at or write to us there for more information about the event.
