[GIVEAWAY] Win Your Wedding Video From Storymix

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

Guys, let’s face it, there are going to be some things in your marriage that are less enjoyable than others. One of them is sitting through a two hour wedding video every year on your anniversary. Instead of being the bad guy who puts the kibosh on even getting a video, we’re giving you the opportunity to be the hero by winning a $400 WeddingMix package from Storymix Media!

WeddingMix is a fun (and cheap) way to capture video of all the cool stuff you’ll actually be OK with watching every year (here’s how it works). And since it’s you and your buddies who will be shooting video with the WeddingMix iPhone app and HD cameras, you’ll be able to capture all the fun, crazy, and memorable moments of which there will be many. From before the big day through the honeymoon, THESE are the moments you’ll want to remember in 20 years. Check out the video mash-up below to see what we’re talking about.

We think WeddingMix is a great idea and have been glad to see many of our readers take advantage of the service with great results. Today, we’re happy to partner with Storymix on a fun contest that’s easy to enter and runs through June 17th. Simply use the form below to enter and you’re guaranteed at least a 10% off coupon. One lucky winner will walk away with a video package worth $400.

Entered? Awesome! But what we’re really looking for is to hear the number one thing you’ll miss about being a bachelor. If you use the WeddingMix app or post a video to the Storymix Facebook wall, it will get you 25 extra entries in the contest! And for those grooms who can’t imagine anything they’ll miss, tell us one thing you’re looking forward to about marriage. Don’t go all ‘true confessions’ on us, but the funnier the better. Good luck!

Contest runs through June 17th. Videos deemed inappropriate will not be counted toward your additional entry count.

[CONTEST] Grooms Gone Wild Over Storymix Media

Monday, April 16th, 2012

We’re proud to say that last year we were one of the first blogs to introduce the wedding world to Storymix Media and its ultra-cool crowd-sourced wedding video service.  We ran a contest that Kyle Fryman (and his smokin’ hot bride Brittany) were fortunate enough to win.

The personal aspect of Storymix Media gives it a unique touch. Instead of a standard videographer, your wedding footage is captured by your friends and family.  Since last year’s contest, we’re happy to report that many of our readers have used Storymix’s WeddingMix service to capture the fun, goofy, and crazy moments from their wedding.  The fact that couples get to use an online storyboard to decide what goes into the final product means your brother’s embarrassing attempt to hit on a bridesmaid during the toasts won’t get left out.

Now Storymix has upped the ante and has come out with with a new iPhone app to capture the before, during and after moments of the wedding.  That means that those last moments as a bachelor can be remembered forever on video.  Plus, even more people can contribute to your video. Anyone with an iPhone or iPad can capture the great stories, memories and laughs from your big day.

To celebrate the release of the app, Storymix is giving away a FREE WeddingMix package worth $400. The goal of the contest is to capture the memorable, unique pre-wedding experiences that feature the groom and his buddies having a good time before the big day, whether it’s having beers during the bachelor party, trying on retro tuxes or playing a pre-wedding round of golf.


1. Each video sent to the Storymix Facebook wall will get you 10 entries into the contest. All you need to do is download the app for free (search WeddingMix on the App Store) and use The Man Registry “wedding” in the list with code 5P6X8.  You can upload the videos directly from the app to Storymix and your Facebook wall.  Then tag the video in FB (@Storymix in the description so we know who the video is from).  Feel free to also add videos from other devices as well.

2. Receive one additional entry each time you tweet this: #GroomsGoneWild over free wedding video package from @Storymix & @TheManRegistry

3. Finally, receive one additional entry for each time you write a comment on the Facebook Timeline of The Man Registry or Storymix Media. Comments should state why you want to win the Storymix video package.

Don’t delay, the contest runs through May 6 and then we’ll draw a winner.

To get your creative juices flowing, here are a few unique clips grooms have taken with Storymix over the last year.

Videos deemed inappropriate will be removed. Contest will end at 11:59pm PST on Sunday May 6, 2012. Winner will be contacted via email or Facebook. Family members of Storymix Media or The Man Registry, LLC employees are ineligible to win.

[CONTEST] Hitting the Wedding Planning Wall? Refuel with Elebra

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Been nodding off during work? Sneaking away to take naps while you’re supposed to be drawing up the reception seating chart? The wedding elebraplanning stress crunch can take its toll on even the most focused brides and grooms. And let’s face it, Red Bull or 5 Hour Energy are only causing you to crash harder. Lucky for you, there’s a new product on the market that dubs itself “energy for the brain.” Meet Elebra.

Elebra is self-proclaimed productivity in a bottle. After many late, energy drink fueled nights, the product’s creators realized that while they may have the energy,  they didn’t have the focus to put to good use.  Their unique 21-ingredient formula helps support both energy levels and concentration. Read more about how Elebra works here.

To help celebrate Elebra’s launch, we’re giving away one bottle plus a bottle of Drinkwel. There are two ways to enter:

1.) Like our Facebook page and leave a comment telling us you want to win the Elebra prize pack.

2.) Leave a comment below telling us what the most stressful part of wedding planning has been so far.

On Monday March 26, we’ll select one winner at random. Good luck to all!

[Giveaway] 101 Uses for My Ex-Wife’s Wedding Dress THE BOOK

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Back in February, we introduced you to Kevin Cotter and his hilariously awesome blog My Ex-Wife’s Wedding Dress. After going through a divorce, Kevin devised a list of 101 cynical creative uses for his ex’s wedding dress that she had left behind (like this, this and this). Since then, his story has gone national and even landed him a book deal. Today, we’re hooking up two of our readers with copies of said book. To enter, just leave a comment below with what your creative use for the dress would be.

Kevin’s story begins (as most marriages do) in happier times. That happiness lasted until July 5th, 2009, when his wife of 12 years announced she was leaving. From the book cover – When she left, she had no interest in grabbing her wedding dress on the way out. “What am I going to do with it?” he asked. “Whatever the f**k you want,” she replied. After careful consideration, Kevin did what any newly divorced man would do with his ex-wife’s wedding dress: He made it into a cape, an oven mitt, a shower curtain and then decided to document his experience in a blog.

I’ve gotten to know Kevin over the last year, and believe his story to be truly unique. His book adds to the lore of his tale and actually brings his story full circle. If you haven’t visited his blog or seen any of the dress uses, I highly recommend picking up a copy on Amazon.
