    1. My favorite category on Truly Engaging is the “Inspiration: DIY ideas”, because I am “DIY-ing”  almost 80% of my wedding.

    2. LOVE the favor boxes! My favorite wedding favor box and design from Magnet Street is the “Enchanted Encounter”. This is by far my favorite design and also the design that we chose for our Save The Dates!

  • KCDrake on June 26, 2012 @ 9:39 am

    1. I love the Real Weddings – I feel like if I can see it done elsewhere I can certainly do the same thing!

    2. I absolutely LOVE the Photo Collection boxes. We are doing truffles from the Chubby Chipmunk back near where I grew up to bring a taste of home to my wedding in Colorado. The truffles look so good I’d love to compliment the truffles with some great looking packaging too!

    Congrats on such a great and successful blog!

  • Laura on June 26, 2012 @ 9:46 am

    1. My favorite category on the Truly Engaging Blog is the Real Weddings: Cultural because I am marrying a man from another country and ethnicity, and my entire family is truly multi-ethnic. It’s interesting to see how other people have represented the marriage of two people and two cultures. Great ideas!
    2.My favorite wedding favor box is the Soft and Sweet because of the too cute cherry blossoms. We live just outside of DC – famous for its cherry blossom festival. We’re thinking of working that motif into our wedding plans for next spring!

  • Shawn on June 26, 2012 @ 9:47 am

    You rock Heidi! Congratulations!!!

  • V. Ramsey on June 26, 2012 @ 9:47 am

    I like the celebrity save the date section- I also like the slide show wedding favor boxes. There are so many details you can put on the box. It can encompass a lot of information you want to share

  • Mindi on June 26, 2012 @ 11:39 am

    Congratulations on the 1000th Blog Post. This is so exciting.
    My favorite section is Real Weddings!

  • Christel Mondejar on June 26, 2012 @ 12:12 pm

    1.) I love the Real Weddings category in ‘Truly Engaging.’ Weddings become this whole fairytale come true to every bride and I love seeing all the happiness in the couple and seeing all the inspiring details of their wedding!

    2.) I’ve always like ‘The Enchanted Encounter’ design. The name speaks for itself. It’s truly enchanted, romantic, and meant-to-be! We got our save the dates using this design! Love, love, love them!

  • Liz Harvey on June 26, 2012 @ 12:13 pm

    My favorite category is read weddings. I love to see what other couples did to make their day extra special!

    My favorite wedding favor box is classic love

  • Chelsey k on June 26, 2012 @ 12:20 pm

    I like the “DIY” area because it makes things more personalized!!
    2. I love the ” Made for Eachother” favor boxes because they are very simple yet cute and they kind of match our save the dates :) I also like the sweet love because it has one of our wedding colors and is still very pretty

  • Chris on June 26, 2012 @ 12:40 pm

    My fiance and I like the DIY section. My favorite wedding favor box would have to be the Watercolor Hibiscus, but all of them are really nice.

  • mattsweb on June 26, 2012 @ 12:41 pm

    Congrats on the milestone Heidi!

  • Molly on June 26, 2012 @ 12:43 pm

    My favorite part of Truely Engaging is the Real Weddings section. I swear I could look at pictures of weddings all day long! Too bad it isn’t conducive to getting work done!
    My favorite favor box is the Enchanted Encounter box. I love it because it is simple and sweet and we would be able to put one of our engagement photos on it. Plus, I am big into monograms, so I love the option of having a big ‘D’ on our favor box.

  • Liza on June 26, 2012 @ 12:46 pm

    The Flower Flourish is my ultimate favorite! In the small box shape. My favorite section is the Inspiration boards! Awesome giveaway!!!

    Congrats on the 1,000th Blog Post!! And thanks for the giveaway!

    1 – I love the “Unique Ideas” section on. I’m always looking for ways to be slightly unique in my own way and these ideas always give me the “ah-ha” moment I was looking for!

    2 – The favor boxes are super cute. My favorite would be the “Antique Flourish” design-which matches my Modern Vintage theme for my wedding next May!!

  • jaime on June 26, 2012 @ 1:34 pm

  • Amber on June 26, 2012 @ 3:57 pm

    I absolutely love looking at all the Real Wedding! I’m such an idea stealer!!!

    The Romantic Ruche favor boxes (2x2x2) are my favorite. They are the same as the Save The Date magnets we will be ordering next month and they are so classic, personal, and fun!

  • Jenny on June 28, 2012 @ 9:20 am

    Congratulations on your 1000th Blog Post Heidi!! That is a HUGE achievement! I know hard it must have been to come up with 1000 creative ideas, it takes a special talent and a true love for writing to come up with the posts you have. I’m at about 35 blog posts myself and still counting. I hope to reach that 1000th mark myself one day soon. 1. Heidzillas and DIY are both great pages, filled with awesome ideas from wedding recaps and offer a lot of great tips and advice. I enjoy seeing the ideas on table numbers, centerpieces and and linen designs. But my favorite has to be Style Me Pretty. I LOVE this page. There are so many magical weddings and glamourous brides shown on here and I have no idea how their photographers are able to capture every wedding detail with such clarity. As I look through the pictures, I start daydreaming about my wedding day and my hopes to have one that’s just as magical. I love looking at the pics of the southern weddings on the Style Me Pretty page, because I could have always pictured myself as a Southern belle. I love the soft, sweet fun loving and charming nature of the south, and could just imagine how darling any wedding out there must be. 2. The Names Written In Sand Wedding Favor Box feels as if they were created for me. My future hubby proposed to me on Lake Michigan, in the sand, and that memory and place will be forever etched in my heart. Everytime I were to look at this wedding favor, it would bring me back to the day we first got engaged, the happiest moment in my life, well at least for now. The only day that I know that’s going to top that is my actual wedding day! But this particular wedding favor is my favorite because it carries such a special personal meaning to both myself and my other half. :-)

  • Lena on June 28, 2012 @ 10:18 am

    It’s tough to pick just one favorite category on Truly Engaging, but I would have to go with DIY ideas. It’s helped me so much and has such great ideas! (In second place would be your resources & free tools!) My wedding favor box & design is the Stately Manor large rectangular box – it’s so simple and matches the colors for our upcoming October wedding in New Orleans! Thank you!

  • Michelle Pavey on June 28, 2012 @ 10:20 am

    i love love love the DIY section and my favorite design is the dramatic rose i look forward to you blog all the time !!! i hope i win lol!!!

  • LaShanda on June 28, 2012 @ 10:31 am

    I am so glad that I “stumbled upon” your blog. It is great! I am newly engaged and have been overwhelmed by the wedding planning process. Your blog (the Inspiration section, in particular) has helped alleviate some of the stress by giving me ideas about colors, invitations, etc. Thank you. I would love to win the favor boxes (one less thing to worry about). I especially like the “Made for Each Other” design. The name of the box is particular appropo for my wedding. In addition, I love the black and white. Our reception will have a movie “red carpet” them and the sides of the box look like movie film. Thanks for the opportunity and congratulations on your big achievement!!

  • Sherri on June 28, 2012 @ 9:49 pm

    I love the DIY section. I am getting married on October 13,2012 and would LOVE to win the classic boxes. Glad I discovered your blog lots of ideas.

    I absolutely love the DIY section! I’m a very artsy person so being able to DIY a lot of my wedding is really fun and I love to see all of the different possibilities!

    My favorite design would have to be the Tree Top Love design. It’s so simple and it fits into the rustic-like theme my fiance and I are looking to have at our wedding. There’s nothing more adorable than seeing two birds sitting in a tree together. :)

  • Pamela on July 2, 2012 @ 2:31 pm

    Congrats on your 1000th post. What an accomplishment. My favorite category is the “Real Wedding” section. It’s nice to see how all those great ideas really look the day of your wedding.
