-- International - There’s a new award in town and it’s called the Celeste Best Awards or CBAs for short, where do-it-yourself (D– I –Y) brides can win a statuette trophy for having the BEST D– I –Y Wedding. Typically the CBAs is strictly an industry award for wedding professionals, yet there are a few categories in which brides themselves can enter and win big. “We know there are a lot of brides out there who have done an excellent job planning their wedding and they deserve an award for their hard work too,” said Janice Celeste, the founder and Chairperson of the CBAs. “There are some D– I –Y brides who hit the ball right out of the park with their wedding, you know? I even encouraged one of my D– I –Y brides to become a planner and now she has a very successful wedding business.”
The CBAs may be on to something. The Wedding Report shows that in 2011, 19 percent of brides in America were do-it-yourself brides. If you feel your wedding was award-winning worthy, then submit your photos by going to the CBA’s website at CelesteBestAwards.com. You could be the Next Best Bride!
