Here come the brides of the year

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

This week is the last op­por­tu­nity for Manawatu brides to make more of their wed­ding day.

En­tries for Som­er­set Kinder­garten’s an­nual Bride of the Year pageant close this Fri­day.

Open to any­one who has links and con­nec­tions with Manawatu, so long as they tied the knot be­tween Au­gust 1, 2014 and July 31, 2015. That means any­one who was born here, lived here, stud­ied here, mar­ried some­one from here, or set­tled here af­ter the wed­ding.

The show takes place in the Re­gent on Broad­way on Mon­day, Septem­ber 7.

Pageant co-or­di­na­tor Mar­lene Ab­bot says there’s ex­cel­lent com­mu­nity and spon­sor sup­port for the event with great prizes for the top three placeget­ters, bride’s choice and au­di­ence choice win­ners, along with gift bags for the brides, as well as raf­fles and auc­tions for the au­di­ence.

For a last-minute en­try pack, email Som­er­set Kinder­garten at som­er­set­, phone 354 3585, or call at the kinder­garten on Som­er­set Cres. The Face­book page is ‘‘Som­er­set Kinder­garten Bride of the Year’’.

2014’s win­ner was Hay­ley Groom­bridge, with Brooke Guy in sec­ond place, Re­becca Conchie in third, while the au­di­ence vote went to Erin Smith.
