Bridal Idol

Note: Current voting for our 2014 SLO Magazine Bridal Idol is complete. The winning SLO Bridal Idol Couple are Carol Williams & Phil LaMontagne!  See their story and photos at bottom of this page.

We call it Bridal Idol; however, no singing is required! It is a very simple competition. We post information about 3 real Central Coast Weddings onto our website. Visitors to the website can vote for their favorite wedding. If YOUR wedding gets the most votes, photos and some details about your wedding will be included in our next Magazine and also on our Website! Bridal Idol details, instructions and application forms are available below.

These real-life examples of local weddings are a great resource for brides currently planning their wedding. Want to help inspire other Brides-To-Be? Then get involved and submit your wedding!
