SimplyShay: Engagement Contest by Bows-N-Ties

Weddings are expensive. In fact, the average American wedding costs in excess of $26,000 - more than five times the average amount newlyweds spend on their honeymoon. To help take some of that financial burden off couples' shoulders, online tie retailer and wedding supplier now offers couples a chance to win free ties for their entire wedding party. "All you need to do is send in your engagement story, and if yours is voted among the three most touching, most romantic, funniest, and/or extraordinary stories, then you can outfit your entire bridal party with free neckwear", explains Bows-n-Ties owner and founder Hendrik Pohl. For those guys that have not popped the question yet, maybe this contest will be the needed encouragement to take the next step.
Founded in 2009 by online entrepreneur and necktie aficionado, Hendrik Pohl, learned firsthand how stressful organizing and financing a wedding is after his sister recently got engaged. he thought that a wedding should be fun but not stressful, and/or cause financial hardship.
Since Bows-n-Ties opened doors two years ago they have helped thousands of couples find ties that match their wedding colors. "We want to make it easy for couples and eliminate one of the stresses of wedding planning by offering a huge selection of tie colors and styles at very reasonable prices", says Pohl. Bows-n-Ties contribute a large part of their success to their close attention to current wedding trends. "Each season we consult with industry leaders like David's Bridal and for current color trends. We have a very good relationship with our suppliers which give us the flexibility and competitive advantage to produce matching color neckwear within a few weeks of first seeing a new color trend emerge", says Pohl.
Besides offering over 2,000 different ties and bowties in stock that are sorted into 19 easy-to-browse color categories, takes pride in their flexible, no questions asked, return policy. In fact, as Pohl explains, "we encourage returns and exchanges. Finding an exact color match can be quite challenging - especially when you are matching a fabric you hold in your hand to a picture you see on a computer screen. We usually suggest to our customers to order a few different ties and then ship the non-matching ones back to us for a full refund."
To participate in this contest, asks all those who are interested to submit their engagement story through the website's contact us page. All stories must be received on, or before September, 31st, 2011.
