Bride of the Year Terms & Conditions

SA Weddings Bride of the Year 2020 - COVID Revision

Due to the impact of the lockdown we have had to make a few changes to the SA Weddings Bride of the Year competition this year. It wouldn't be nice to have some months without brides, so we will not be doing it by month this year, but rather combine into one year. To make the competition as fair as possible, we will close voting on the 31st of July 2020, voting will resume on the 1st of January 2021. The votes acquired up until the 31st July 2020 will remain valid and your tally will be "frozen" until voting opens again on 1 January 2021.

Brides will be able to create profiles, link vendors and share images throughout the year, nothing changes there, it is just that voting will happen in a defined period, 01 January 2021 to 31 March 2021. The event which will be our biggest and most exciting yet will take place on the 05th of June 2021.
