If you’re thinking about attending the Feb. 8 I Do! Wedding Soiree (which, we gotta say, is probably the best decision you can make as a vendor-seeking, fashion-forward, cocktail-loving, inspiration-hungry to-be-wed), but if you haven’t yet bought your tickets, NOW is the time, gurrrl. Not only will you get 30% off the at-door ticket price–before you pull up your calculator app, that’s $25 instead of $35–but you’ll also be automatically entered to win a $150 gift card for Armandos, Houston’s destination for elevated Tex-Mex dining in a gorgeous setting inspired by 1920’s Mexico.

We’re thrilled to partner with Armando and Cinda Palacios’ award-winning restaurant for this very special limited-time “Buy & Win” giveaway. Not only is Armandos a fantastic spot for rehearsal dinners and engagement parties (there’s an audible “wow” when guests enter the space, with its antique mirrors, gleaming wood surfaces and lush red draperies…and another when they dig in to a decadent lobster enchilada or a divine mouthful of savory carne guisada), but the Armandos team also offers impeccable full-service wedding catering off-site, and bright-red taco trucks for low-key celebrations with high-quality Tex-Mex food and service! So, how do you enter to win our $150 Armandos restaurant gift card?? It’s EASY!!

Mother’s Day Love: Houston Bride Jansu Shares Her Fave Mom Moment

MOM. She’s there for you every step of the way, whenever you need her—especially during wedding planning! With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we want to show all of the mamas out there how much we appreciate them. We asked our lovely Instagram followers what their fave wedding moment with Mom was, and we just had to share what Houston bride Jansu had to say.

“The night before the wedding, my mom and I had a sleepover—just the two of us. We reminisced about my childhood memories, and when I first met my husband in high school. We’d had a physics study party at his house, and when my mom came to pick me up, he was SO formal! He came outside just to shake her hand through the window,” says Jansu.

“We laughed and cried until 2 in the morning. Even though I got little sleep the night before the big day, it was the perfect way to calm my nerves and spend some special time with my mom. She’s my best friend—hands down,” she adds.

We loved Jansu’s fave wedding moment with her mom so much, that we gave her a deluxe pedi package for two courtesy of Citris Nail Spa. Congrats on winning this fabulous giveaway! We hope you and your mom enjoy every moment of Mother’s Day. Xo!
