Looking to get hitched on a super low budget, but don’t like the looks of the local courthouse? Well, then you're in luck! Brooklyn Bride has teamed up with Martha Stewart Weddings and The Wedding Library to offer you The Martha Stewart Weddings Pop-up Chapel at Brooklyn’s own 303GRAND, an event space in Williamsburg. From June 25th – June 30th, a select number of couples will have the opportunity to get married in style and on a budget. What can top that? One lucky couple will win a free pass to walk down the aisle in style.
What it is:
The Martha Stewart Weddings Pop-Up Chapel. Six days to walk down the aisle in a custom-designed chapel, with décor and styling by Martha Stewart Weddings, featuring DIY Style ideas from our Summer 2009 issue, local artisans and Etsy vendors. It’s not as cheap as the local courthouse, but for a mere $500 you get a full package deal, including the officiant, cake, photography, bouquet, and a champaign toast for the bride & groom! The Martha Stewart Weddings Pop-Up Chapel can seat up to 40 of your closest friends and family. Also - it's a chance to have your wedding featured on marthastewartweddings.com

How to enter: Send us an email telling us why you think you should win a free walk down the aisle. What makes you and your sweetheart so unique? Do you have a magical story of romance? Is Brooklyn the place where you first fell in love? Make us laugh, make us cry, make us want to tell all of the world how special your wedding will be. The winning couple will also be featured online and will be asked to share their story online, so convince us you’re not shy!
