Fatal Wedding Big Reveal Day 5: Sam's Dress

Sam really appreciates your help in making this decision for her....

Sam's Dress 1



Sam's Dress 2



Sam's Dress 3



And the winner is....

NUMBER 1!

Yippee! The big decision has been made, now Sam has to put up with Tinker Bell and all the damned fittings (and she is none too happy about that, let me tell you!) Can't wait until you can read the conversation Sam and Nick have about her dress. :-) Less than two weeks now until Fatal Destiny!

Today, I'm offering another $25 gift card to Amazon for those who comment--on the blog (sorry Facebook comments don't count) by midnight EDT tonight. Everyone who comments during these two weeks will be entered to win one of two grand prizes: a Kindle or a Nook (or a $100 gift card to Amazon or B&N if you already have a device) OR advance copies of Fatal books for the life of the series.

It would be my choice for her too.

She might not be very happy with the fact in the beggining but when groom fells on his knees drooling she'll know "She Did It" ahahahah

Michelle said...

Very pretty!

Looking forward to putting my visuals to the story :)

TGIF, everyone! Love the gown. All were great choices, can't go wrong with Vera Wang.

I can only imagine Tinker Bell is earning her fee with Sam on this wedding for sure.

It's all coming together and I can't wait for the big day.

Have a great weekend!

Love this one although I also liked #3 paired with the suit with the silver tie too. Such nice choices.

Morning everyone! LOL to Tara: Tinker Bell is earning EVERY dime, believe me! There's a really funny scene with her and Sam in Destiny that I enjoyed writing. Sam has met her match with Shelby, that's for sure. Trying to figure out a way to keep Shelby in the cast after the wedding. I enjoyed writing her sparing matches with Sam.

I'm getting them all wrong! My favorite was the second one, the color is beautiful!

jackiedanner said...

Yeah! Couldn't wait to see this one. I want to redo my wedding with this dress! Ahhh, too bad it wasn't in style 10 years ago! Beautiful!

Jess said...

I actually picked #2, but gown #1 is still beautiful!

I too love number one.

Thanks for the giveaway to get some more books to keep my big tbr company. Always nice to meet new friends. LOL.

j. barrett said...

i'd be super happy to have worn any of these, WOW

Amy said...

I don't know about anyone else, but all of these teasers and spoilers are making me kookoo bananas. I feel like a six-year-old on December 22nd. I'm biting my fingers to the quick writing for the big show!

Aly said...

Love Shelby and Sam scenes! They absolutely crack me up!

I have to say that I really loved all the dress choices - not that I picked them out or anything! LOL! I actually could see Sam in all 3 of them but think she will absolutely shine in #1.

StephanieJS said...

Love dress #1! It's so Sam. I've never anticipated the release of a book or novella like I have this one. I can't wait!

Gown #1 is perfect for Sam. Love it!! Can't wait to read the scenes with Sam and Shelby.

All the gowns are beautiful, but #1 is perfect for Sam. Now, if she can just get through the fittings, hopefully without having the seamstress sew a pocket for her weapon! Tinker Bell has no doubt earned every single penny of her fee!

Not so patiently awaiting Sept 5th... ;~}

TGIF! And I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! Keeping those of you in Irene's path in my thoughts and prayers.

I ♥ Dress #1! I'm in total agreement with krisgils33, "the other two just didn't do it for me!"

Oh Marie! Keeping "Tinker Bell" in the cast is a fantastic idea! Perhaps either Sam or Nick could help her find a HEA with a cop or politician! At least maybe they can throw some business her way with all the new relationships building in the books.

As someone else mentioned, patience is running thin -- counting the days until the big event!

This has been fun, actually seeing all the choices for the wedding. Now we need the book to continue the fantasy!! It will be great to read and picturing this all in our minds. Can't wait, Marie! Great job, as always!

We looked at thousands of dresses trying to narrow down the choices. LOL. And I think Aly and I both agreed that we wanted to force feed all the wedding dress models cake. LOTS of cake.

Jacquie said...

Gorgeous dress, my absolutely 1st choice for Sam. Can't wait for the release of the book. I only hope that in future books Sam & Nick won't be secondary characters with all the new additions. They are the #1 story for me!
Thanks Marie, love your books!

Dress #1 is just lovely.
I consider it to be the definition of wedding dress.

I've been on the Official Ronlyn Wedding Dress Model Diet, and didn't even know it.
#1 is beautiful.
Sam + Shelby +conversation = FUN.

number5 said...

LOVE #1!!!!!! SO elegant!!! #2 is to "naturey" and #3 seemed more of a bridesmaid than a brides dress.

Finally! I KNOW I voted for this dress. I cannot remember what I voted for in the others.

Jamie said...

Beautiful dress! If only the tux for Nick were different. I'll still picture him jn the one I voted for.

Jackie 0668 said...

Gown #1 was the best choice. Traditional, feminine and classic. The perfect wedding dress. Sam will be beautiful :-)

It's perfect, just perfect.

limecello said...

Awe, how cute- we're all traditionalists. At least when it comes to the dress ;D

... although I actually have no idea which I picked initially...

Kay said...

#1 or #3, both are fabulous. I think I went with #3 in the voting .. because of the non-traditional color.

Catherine said...

Absolutely love dress 1! I am very excited to have all of these visuals while reading about the wedding!

There were all beautiful...and mine, once again, didn't win...I think #3 is beautiful...and perfect for a 2nd wedding...but alas...I'm in the minority!!!

Oh well...I remember when we picked all these selections...so nice to finally see all the results.

I abhor dresses with a passion (good thing I'm never getting married, eh? :-P), but I must admit the winning dress is great.

Looking forward to 5-09-11! [yes, my Europe-born, Asia-raised, America-educated self still writes dates in day-month-year-form :-)]

I love dress number one didn't even need to look at the others, it just has Sam written all over it, nothing too fussy! Can't wait to read the sparing matches Marie!

Number one makes me think of Princess Wedding

While number two makes me think Fae, Faery, Elf wedding and I love the color. Not wild about white. My wedding dress was beige (my decision)

Sheree said...

Loved number 1! Of course, I loved all three!
