Wedding gown offered in contest

Brides-to-be can enter to win the Harlequin’s Wedding Gown of the Future during the companies Walk Down the Aisle Contest.

Last year, Harlequin Enterprises Ltd., held a contest for young designers to create the wedding gown of the future. Created by Sophie Sung, the winning gown is 100 percent silk dupioni and overlaid with Battenburg-inspired cut lace with seed pearls and iridescent sequins. The abbreviated farthingale at the hip is lushly adorned with silk roses, as is the dramatic headdress, complemented with feathers and a multitiered veil of gossamer illusion netting.

Harlequin will offer one bride the chance to win the gown and she and her groom will receive a six-night, seven-day honeymoon at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa in Hawaii.

To enter, write to Harlequin and explain, in 250 words or less, why wearing the wedding gown would be special. Entries must be postmarked no later than Oct. 1 and received by Oct. 8 at: Harlequin Walk Down the Aisle Contest 1197, PO Box 9076, Buffalo, NY 14269-9076.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
