{Contest} It's A Quickie!

OK, folks! I've got a quick contest for you! And it's sooooo super-easy! You don't have to Tweet or Follow or Facebook or anything of that nonsense. You just have to tell me what you think! That's all. Just give me your opinion and you can consider yourself entered!  Here's what you could win:

Totally cute, right? The sign is 13-1/2" long and 8" high. It's got two D-rings that the ribbon is tied to that you could always change out if you wanted to. Or, just remove the ribbon and set it in a stand or lean it up against something. It's painted in off-white with gold crackle finish and is embellished with the scrolls at top and bottom as well with little tiny pearls (not real, of course) on the letters. The sign is hand made and signed by an amazing artist. I can't share the details of that artist here (all legal mumbo-jumbo, I'm sure), but trust me, her stuff is to die for!  Here's another shot:

So what is it that you need to do to win this bad boy? Well, first you need to look at some more pretty pretty things by this amazing artist! Check these out!

So here's what you gotta do:

1. Tell me your favorite (it can be a single plaque or a set - like the Mr/Mrs or Bride/Groom)

THAT GETS YOU ONE ENTRY.

2. Tell me how much you'd be willing to pay for your favorite (ballpark it, ladies).

THAT GETS YOU TWO ENTRIES.

3. Tell me your second favorite.

THAT GETS YOU A THIRD ENTRY.

4. Tell me how much you'd pay for your second favorite.

THAT GETS YOU FOUR ENTRIES.

5. If there's something unappealing about this, what is it?

THAT FIVE ENTRIES, MAMASITA!

And yes, The Thirty-Something Bride is getting involved in a little market research here, but it's for a good cause. That cause? Pretty stuff at affordable prices! So tell me what you think and win yourself a wedding sign for your Big Day. You want to know my favorite? The cocktails sign. Um, duh. Right? :)

Oh, and if you do feel compelled to Tweet or Blog or whatever, go right ahead.The contest will run until midnight on WEDNESDAY! So hurry!

HAPPY MONDAY!

I LOVE them!
OK, Choice #1 - Wedding (no arrow). I'd pay $25
Choice #2- Mr & Mrs..I like them too because I'd use them in my personal home!!! $20 ea.

My feedback would be to make the arrow a more decorative arrow to reflect the lettering style!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

My favorite is the Mr. and Mrs. signs...because you can use them from the time you get married until..well..you get the idea..hopefully FOREVER! I would pay $50 for both of them...my second fave is the reception one..I could really use that for my reception since it is going to be out in the boonies in Tennessee...hope my family finds it ok...eeekkk!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCynthia

See above...sorry forgot to put my email...what can I say, it's Monday.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCynthia

1. My favorite is the smaller of the two wedding plaques

2. As is, I would pay anything under $50. If more were offered as part of a set, say wedding/ceremony together, I would pay $75 for two.

3. My second favorite are the Mr. & Mrs. Signs.

4. I would pay around $50 for the set of Mr. & Mrs.

5. The only thing i find somewhat unappealing is the D-ring detail on the front of the sign. In some cases, it is crowding the words on the sign a little too much. I'm sure these would be easy to swap out for something more simple.

Yay! These would be perfect for dmy venue, which has multiple entrances. I would use them to guide people to the entrances I want them to use so that they see the venue as it is meant to be seen for the first time!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRosie

As far as the design concept goes, I like the "cocktails" one the best only because of the chandelier! :) I would love to have the "Wedding" one with the chandelier on it. I would pay around $30 for the "cocktails" one as is.

I also love the Mr./Mrs. set. These are great because they could be used as decor in the home after the wedding. I would pay $40 for the set as is.

I've noticed that many sellers who make signs only offer background and font in one color option. Although they are typically neutral as these are, it would be really nice to have some color options. I did notice that you have one "ceremony' sign in a blue font. I would want to order mine in black, so it would be nice to have color options for background and/or fonts. Brides like to order a customized product with color options to match their decor. That would be my only suggestion. :)

These are great! Thanks for sharing!

1. Favorite: "Wedding This Way"
2. $30
3. "Cocktails"
4. $25
5. Nothing unappealing to me! Our wedding's in an old historic chapel and the reception's in a restored Victorian mansion, so these would all look amazing in both of those places!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHappy Nappy Bride

Hey lady, you know I love you and your contests. That and I'm going to try to win stuff for my brother's wedding or if it's really cute for myself (ok I'll give it to him).

Favorite: Tough but I'll go with Mr. and Mrs. because they would work after the wedding too - separate sides of the fridge or bathroom sinks - some interesting possibilities.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChic 'n Cheap Living

Absolute favorite is the Mr. and Mrs. set - we have his and hers sinks in our master bath, and I can just see them hanging over the mirrors and making me smile each morning. Second favorite would be the cocktails sign, which I would hang in my kitchen above the bar. I looked at these sigsn a bazillion times on Etsy and these are the best I've seen!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLillian

I'd say $40 for a set would be my price point.

p.s. If you ask potential customers their price point, a majority will aim low. I am trying to be realistic though. $40 would be my max willingness to pay.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChic 'n Cheap Living

"Cocktails" is my second favorite. This can go anywhere!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChic 'n Cheap Living

Hi there,
LOVE these signs. Tried to make something similar and it was a big, fat, FAIL.
Anyhow, I digress.

1- My fav is Wedding this way with an arrow. (that's what I need)
2 - I'd like to pay about $30 but I haven't seen any for that price, they're mostly $40+ and I'm too cheap for that.
3 - My 2nd favorite is....Mr. & Mrs. set
4 - In all honesty I wouldn't buy those because I'm sure they'd be priced $40 - $50 and what would I do with them afterwards???
5 - I'm not a huge fan of the sepia tones. I'd prefer black and white.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLori

I'd pay $20 for "Cocktails".

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChic 'n Cheap Living

What I'd change: keep either the fleur the lis or chandelier, but not have both. I'd also change the ribbon because it looks cheap. Is this heavy? I can't tell if it would fall over. A black and white option would also be nice.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChic 'n Cheap Living

my most favorite sign is the classic, "wedding this way" because if I can only have ONE sign, that would be the homerun winner.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJes

Because my wedding is on a tight budget, I probably would only have MAX $15 to spend on a fun ornament like this.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJes

My second favorite sign that I would love to rock would be the "Cocktails" sign

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJes

On the "cocktails" sign I would probably spend MAX $10. I'm such a cheap-o.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJes

i don't think there is anything unappealing about these. however, my personal taste for our wedding is very "simple" - and I think these signs are adorable and probably don't even need the little "do-dads" on them! The paint effect and classical font selection make them pretty enough!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJes

1. Ceremony sign -- $20
2. Mr and Mrs -- $50 for the set

navybaby1113 (at) gmail (dot) com

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

I love them all but if I had to pick

1. Wedding with 1 arrow
2. $20 (but I'm on a tight budget)
3. Mr. and Mrs.
4. $25 for the pair
5. I don't find anything unappealing, though it would be nice to see some options in different colors/styles.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterShannon

1. My favorite out of all of them is the Mr. & Mrs. signs. The antique design of all of them would match my venue perfectly, since our reception is in a historic building with lots of character.
2. I would pay no more than $50 for the set.
3. My second favorite is the hanging cocktail sign.
4. I would pay $35 for this.
5. I would only change one thing. I really like the hanging ceremony sign with the bright blue. However, I would like if there was a matching reception arrow sign that also tied with ribbon.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

I like the Mr & Mrs. signs

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

I would probably pay.. $20 - it is something I could probably do myself, though they're nice!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

I like the wedding this way second best.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

1. My favorite is the wedding this way, with the arrow
2. I would pay no more than $25
3. My second favorite is the hanging cocktail sign.
4. I would pay $20 for this.
5. The overall design is a tad tuscan/fake antique... I'd love a cleaner version with fewer fleur de lis and "cracks" in the paint.

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterbeth

1. I love the idea of the wedding sign with the one arrow

2. I would pay no more than $20 for this sign.

3. My second favorite would definitely have to be the Mr. and Mrs. separate signs, I would use these on our chairs at the reception.

4. I would probably pay $30 for the pair.

5. The only thing unappealing, although I wouldn't even call it that, would be the lack of color choices. I love the look and they would go with my wedding but I could see other brides having difficulty. Other than that I think they are adorable!

March 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterrofarrell

1. My favorite is the Mr. and Mrs. signs

2. $20 a piece

3. Blue Reception sign

4. $20

5. I didn't find anything about them unappealing. :)

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSteph

They are very cute! They kind of have a vintage look to them.

1. First favorite is the ceremony sign with the arrow.
2. $20 (I'm also on a tight budget).
3. Mr. & Mrs. signs
4. $30 for both.
5. Maybe have more color options so that it can appeal to different people.

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSandy

My favorite is the Mr. and Mrs. signs. For those Id probably pay around $30-$40 depending on the size
My second favorite is the arrow sign that says ceremony. For that I'd pay about $25.
A suggestion would be the get an arrow sign that said reception. That would be more usable for me. Also, maybe use some darker lettering, like a plum color.

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteramanda

1. My favorite is the Mr. & Mrs
2. I'd pay $20
3. My 2nd fav is ceremony arrow
4. $15
5. Not unappealing but I would like to choose colors that went with my wedding color theme

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGinger

My favorite sign says "wedding this way" with the arrow, and I would pay around $20 for it. My second favorite is a tie between the "cocktails" sign and the "bride" and "groom" signs- I'd pay about $20 per sign for those as well- or if the Bride and Groom came as a combo for $30 that would be awesome :-)
I don't think that there is anything unappealing about them--my only suggestion would be to offer them in different colors (i.e gray and white or gray and black).

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAmber

First love the Mr. and Mrs.
Would Pay 40.00
Next love the Wedding with Arrow
Would pay 30.00
I love these so unique and cute. They could work with all kinds of styles vintage, english garden, rustic, tuscan which makes them more appealing to a wider audience. They would be lovely in a antique silver also. I don't think they have too much on them. I think you should go all out for your wedding. Stand out and be noticed.

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteremily

You know that the little sign that says "Cocktails" totally screams my name, right? Lurve it. And I'd totes pay $40 for it. Maybe more if it was in some swanky boutique where it is a given that you'll be overcharged just for the sake of their own pretentiousness. LOVE them! :)

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Kriss

N.B., on the comment above where I said "love them," I was referring to the signs. Not the yuppie overpriced boutiques. Just thought I'd better clarify.

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Kriss

The Mr. & Mrs. signs are a close second. And I'd pay $50 for the set. :)

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Kriss

Just an FYI, I like the all, however, I do have a couple favorites:

1. My favorite is Mr/Mrs it an elegant touch especially if you can customize the colors to match you wedding day colors.

2. $75 for the set

3. My second favorite is Wedding with out the arrow again it all in the detail and it set the tone for you wedding.

4. $45

5. What unappealing is the ribbon that it hang on only because if you hang the wedding plaque on the church doors with all the end and out it may fall of and break.

THAT FIVE ENTRIES, MAMASITA

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle Norwood

1. Tell me your favorite (it can be a single plaque or a set - like the Mr/Mrs or Bride/Groom)

My favorite is the small wedding sign. It is elegant and understated. And I love the fleur de lis.

2. Tell me how much you'd be willing to pay for your favorite (ballpark it, ladies).

I would pay $75 for that sign.

3. Tell me your second favorite.

My second favorite is the Mr. and Mrs. I think they would look really cute on a his-and-hers bathroom.

4. Tell me how much you'd pay for your second favorite.

I would pay $50 for the set.

5. If there's something unappealing about this, what is it?

I don't really like the chandelier on the cocktails sign. It seems a bit out of place when looking at the signs as a set.

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterEvelyn

1. I like the one that says Reception :o)
2. Approximately $30
3. Mr/Mrs
4. $40 for the set
5. I don't like the Chandelier design. I feel like it's getting overplayed- but I think that's because I read too many blogs to be honest, it's still fresh to most outsiders :o) But I really like the layout of where the Chandelier is.

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJenni

These are adorable! My favorite is definately the "Wedding This Way" with an arrow sign. I would pay about $30 for this. My second favorite is the "Ceremony" arrow sign. I would pay $25 for this. It would be really nice if you could get these signs in different colors, however the neutral colors are still really nice and would match anyone's wedding. Thanks!

March 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterElizabeth

Wowza! What cute signs!
1. My #1 favorite. Is the Mr/Mrs sign.
2. I would pay $25.00 each.
3.My second favorite is the Wedding sign it's so nice and classic looking.
4. I would pay $25.00 for that as well.
5. I absolutely ADORE these but if I had to pick one unappealing thing it would be that they aren't customizable to your own taste and color combos. :)

March 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly

1. Tell me your favorite (it can be a single plaque or a set - like the Mr/Mrs or Bride/Groom)

I think the one you are giving away is the most beautiful

I would pay 50.00

3. Tell me your second favorite.
The Mr./Mrs.

4. Tell me how much you'd pay for your second favorite.
30.00

5. If there's something unappealing about this, what is it?
