One Lucky Bride Wins

Custom Dream Wedding Gown

It's Easy and Completely Free to Enter!


One lucky bride with an eye for style will win her customer-made dream dress ... for FREE! And now MyDreamlines.com has partnered with us to provide a one-of-a-kind art piece to go with it in the form of a beautiful, hand-crafted sketch of her winning design as a forever keepsake of her design and special day. You can see samples of MyDreamlines' work here.


You do not have to be a designer or artist to enter. You simply need to be able to communicate your vision for your perfect wedding dress in a way that you can take a picture of and share with us. There are an infinite number of ways to do this:

  • Cut bits and pieces out of bridal magazines and tape them together.

  • If you like to draw, sketch out your ideas.

  • Find a photo of a wedding dress that is almost perfect and then make notes about the changes you would like.

  • Grab a bunch of fabric swatches and bead samples and then write a brief description of how they go together.


There is no limit to your creativity. If you can communicate your style and ideas visually, then it works for us!


Take a photo of your design ideas and write a few words describing your vision (two or three sentences). To submit your design entry, you must:

  1. Follow @AlmondTreeWeddings on Instagram.

  2. Post the photo and a brief written description (approximately 50 to 75 words is fine) of your design entry to your personal Instagram and “tag” Almond Tree Wedding Boutique in the image (@almondtreeweddings on Instagram). If you are new to social media, “tag” means to identify Almond Tree Wedding Boutique as being in or related to the photo.

  3. Email your entry with the information below to us at:

  4. Read, understand, and follow the timing and Official Rules (see link below).



Your email entry MUST include the following:

  • A photo of your design entry must be attached

  • Your brief written description of your style and idea (approximately 50 to 75 words is fine)

  • Your full name

  • Your Instagram handle

  • Your email address

How to Enter

Timing and Rules

All entries must be received by May 1, 2017. 


Four finalists will be chosen by a panel of industry experts based on style and design.


The four finalist's designs will be professionally rendered by professional fashion artists and posted on Instagram for everyone to vote for their personal favorite. The winner will be announced in the Almond Tree Wedding Boutique at the Arizona Bridal Show on June 11th, 2017.


The winning design will actually be made into a real, custom wedding gown for FREE! 


Importantly, keep in mind that custom wedding gowns typically take +/- five months to finalize designs, create, and do final fittings. The Official Rules have all the important details, but barring any delays, we anticipate the winning dress will be ready for delivery in November 2017. Keep this in mind when you enter.


It's all about fun and great style, so make sure that you read the Official Rules and get your entry in today!
