Before I discuss the details about each prize in this extra special giveaway, I wanted to let you all know that if you mention "Brenda's Wedding Blog" to any of the following participating vendors, you will receive 10% off any order, any size. And, the winner will receive 20% off should they like additional products or another coordinating piece created. Vendors participating in the 10% Discount include: Creative Custom Card Boxes, Customized Wedding Creations {except for Cherin's Glamorous Collection and Eco-Runners Collection}, Lasso'd Moon {Carey's pre-designed collections only}, Custom Wedding Garters, Hand-crafted Creations, Favors by Dorinda, Ten23 Designs, and Emici Bridal.

And, now, here are the details on each of the giveaway prizes:

The Creative Custom Card Box is a safe, secure and stylish way to collect your cards and gifts at your peacock themed event! It features real peacock feathers hand applied to a hand-painted champagne colored box embellished with real chocolate brown satin ribbon and Swarovski crystals on each tier!

Just Married parasol is a rice paper parasol in turquoise with a lime green marabou feather trim hand sewn onto the parasol. The parasol is 32" in diameter when open.

For the 75 5x7 Invitations and postcard RSVPs, the winner can choose from matte white, ecru or white linen paper (shown) for their invitations and a metallic gold (shown) or matching envelope (the gold is pretty, but requires a quick drying pen to write on them). Additional invitations, ceremony and reception items, or paper upgrades (pocket folds, backings, envelope liners, etc) can be purchased at the 20% discount. The winner may personalize all text.

The peacock wedding garter will arrive as shown with no customizations. The garter is satin with a custom designed peacock embroidery on the inside of back. And a lovely Peacock feather embellishes the front. Embroidery design will be a lovely visual showing along with the feather, when the garter is displayed in a shadow box after the wedding. Avg. size. Will fit small, medium & large depending on the position on leg.

The peacock ring pillow will be customized with the 3 letter monogram of winner's choice. It is ivory satin and custom designed with peacock embroidery, small glass beads and one real peacock feather.

75 personalized candy bar wrappers, which include the Bride & Groom's first & last names on the front of the wrapper. The back of the wrapper will feature "Thank you for sharing this day with us" & the wedding date. The foil overwrap will be either purple or gold to match the peacocks. The bars will be shipped just prior to your big day.

Monogram design service includes 1 full custom peacock monogram design and 1 large multi-color personalized peacock monogram decal. This size is roughly 2' tall x 4' wide and can be used on the dance floor, mirrors, a large window, an entry door, etc.

The unique peacock lavender sachets are generously filled with a mix that has been created to give you just the right amount of lavender buds in each sachet. Each sachet measures approximately 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches and each one comes with a peacock feather laid under ribbon on the sachet. These make great gifts for hostesses or your bridesmaids!

For the 30 minutes of wedding planning consultation with Simply & Forever, you will be able to spend the 30 minutes talking about decor, how to tie your vision together cohesively, or anything else that you have questions about while planning your wedding.

The silk peacock brooch is way too pretty and bold for words. Peacock feathers, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls and rhinestones sit atop a bed of teal silk dupioni flower petals. This gorgeous brooch measures about 4 inches in diameter.

The Sasha Fascinator, with her soft Amethyst purple petals, unique green vintage button, and bejeweled peacock feathers will add a splash to any outfit! Ideal for use in hair, but also versatile enough to clip stylishly onto any dress, sweater, or handbag. This flower has been hand-cut, hand-stitched, and lovingly assembled.

And, now, please leave your comments to enter to win. Good Luck!
