Peta's Weddng Dress Weight-Loss Challenge!

Calling all brides! Lose weight, look fabulous, and win the Linda Loudermilk wedding dress of your dreams, all in time for your special day. Enter below to compete in PETA's Wedding Dress Weight-Loss Challenge by going vegan and shedding unwanted pounds, and a free custom wedding dress could be yours.

Linda Loudermilk has spearheaded the creation of a new luxury eco lifestyle, blowing old concepts of environmental living out of the water. From couture runways in Paris to luxury eco Los Angeles street wear, Linda has launched numerous collections that demonstrate her belief in the necessity of a worldwide shift toward sustainable living. 'Linda Loudermilk made sustainable clothing cool.'--Women's Wear Daily
Submit a recent photo and your current weight, then eat a healthy vegan diet—and you may be walking down the aisle in a one-of-a-kind gown! You'll lose pounds, get healthy, and have a gorgeous and cruelty-free bridal glow for your wedding day. Brides, it has never been a better time to go vegan.

Don't worry, we'll help you every step of the way with your new diet. You'll receive a follow-up e-mail from PETA, and we'll check in to see if you're meeting your weight-loss goals. With the help of our meal planner, PETA's vegetarian/vegan starter kit, and free recipes, you'll be on your way to healthy bridal bliss within weeks!

Once you clean up your diet, getting the happily-ever-after you deserve will be a piece of cake (vegan cake, of course!). On average, vegans live six to 10 years longer than meat-eaters do, so you and your groom-to-be will be cherishing each other for years to come.

Still not convinced? Your vegan honeymoon should seal the deal … and we're happy to report that vegans make better lovers. It's true! You'll be feeling as irresistible as you look with your new vegan lifestyle.

Contest Guidelines:

* Anyone residing in the U.S. and getting married in the spring or summer of 2011 is eligible.
* Entry runs from June 1 to June 30, 2010, and the weight-loss portion of the contest runs from July 1 to October 31, 2010. Contestants may begin a vegan diet immediately after entering, but only weight lost between July 1 and October 31, 2010, will be considered.
* Contestants are required to submit an appropriate recent photo, disclose current weight, and provide monthly weight updates to PETA as well as a final photo at the end of the contest.
* The winner will be selected based on the best transformation story—pounds lost, improved health, and improved appearance will be taken in to consideration—as determined by PETA in its sole and absolute discretion. The winner will be notified and announced by November 17, 2010.
* One winner will be featured in a PETA blog post and receive a custom Linda Loudermilk wedding dress, valued at $6,000! The winner will receive up to three free fittings with the designer in Los Angeles (travel paid for by winner), or the winner must arrange for own alterations (to be paid for by the winner) to the dress created by Linda Loudermilk. Traveling to fittings is not required to win the contest.
* You should always consult your physician or other health-care professional before starting any diet program to determine if it is right for your needs.
