Kent County Tourism announces a new Pinterest contest for brides-to-be and those who love all things wedding in anticipation of the Sunday, Feb. 17 Delaware Capital Region Bridal Showcase set for the Hilton Garden Inn in Dover.

Here’s how the contest works:  Contestants should create a Pinterest board titled Delaware’s Capital Region Bridal Showcase and pin their contest entry images to their boards, including at least five wedding-associated images like bridal gowns, cakes, limos or flowers. Include #DEBrides in comments. Follow KentCoTourism on Pinterest. Contestants should register the link to the board in the form to the right and like Mandie Leigh Photography on Facebook. The entrant with the most pins wins!

The contest is cosponsored by Mandie Leigh Photography and Kent County Tourism. The winner will receive a free engagement portrait and a $150 discount on a wedding photography package, together valued at $325. The contest will close Monday, Feb. 18. More information about Mandie Leigh Photography will be available during the bridal showcase Feb. 17 or go to www.facebook.com/MandiLeighPics.

“We are very pleased to be offering a fun and unique contest for brides,” said Charles Gray, director of sales for Kent County Tourism, coordinator of the bridal showcase. “Like all social media, the use of Pinterest is growing, and the fact that brides can utilize Pinterest as a wedding planning tool is a bonus that could result in prize winnings.”

The showcase will feature a designer cake competition judged by brides, strolling fashion shows, food samplings, seminars, a groom’s lounge and cooking demonstrations. More than 30 local wedding experts from gowns to venues and services will be on hand in an intimate setting, and $3,000 in door prizes will be awarded. Delaware State News is the exclusive media sponsor and published the showcase guide.

Registration for the bridal showcase is free for brides-to-be, and can be done by visiting www.delawarecapitalregionbridalshowcase.com. For more information, contact Charles Gray, 302-734-9309.
