3. RANDOM DRAWING - PRIZE - ODDS OF WINNING: On September 19, 2014, the Promotion Administrator, an independent judging organization, will conduct a random drawing from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period, to award one (1) Grand Prize: a trip for the winner and one (1) guest to attend New York International Bridal Week in New York City in October 2014. The prize consists of round trip coach air travel to New York, NY, from a major commercial airport near winner's residence (as determined by Sponsor), double-occupancy hotel accommodations for 3 days/2 nights, airport/hotel transfers, VIP seats and backstage access to fashion shows, attendance to the after-party, a meet and greet with TLC bridal talent and $500 USD spending money. Winner must take trip at time to be determined by the Sponsor (estimated to be October 10 - October 12, 2014) or prize will be forfeited in its entirety. Approximate retail value $4,000. Actual value will be determined by winner's residence and seasonal rates. Travel and accommodations are subject to availability and certain restrictions. Winner and guest must travel on the same itinerary and will be responsible for all necessary travel authorizations, for any travel insurance and for all trip expenses not specified. Air carriers, hotels and other transportation will be selected by Sponsor. TLC bridal talent is subject to availability. If for any reason Sponsor is unable to provide backstage access or meet and greet with TLC bridal talent, no compensation will be awarded in lieu thereof, but remainder of prize package will be awarded. If winner lives within 100 miles of New York, New York (as determined by Sponsor), Sponsor reserves the right to substitute ground transportation in lieu of airfare at its sole discretion, and any difference in value will not be awarded.

No prize transfer or cash redemption permitted. No prize substitution, in whole or in part, except by Sponsor due to prize unavailability, safety or security considerations, or any other reason as solely determined by Sponsor, in which case a prize of comparable or greater value will be awarded.

Odds of winning will be determined by the number of eligible entries received.

4. WINNER NOTIFICATION: The potential winner will be notified by phone between the hours of 1:00 PM ET and 4:00 PM ET, on September 19, 2014, at the telephone number provided in the entry submission. Potential winner must be reached by phone when called, and verbally confirm his/her eligibility and availability for him/herself and his/her travel companion to travel to New York, NY, October 10-12, 2014. No telephone messages will be left for potential winners, and potential winners will only be telephoned one time for attempted prize notification. Notification attempts not satisfactorily completed within three (3) minutes may be deemed as unsuccessful, and an alternative winner will be selected. If the potential winner is unable to travel to New York, NY on the dates specified, he/she must forfeit prize and an alternate winner will be chosen and contacted. If the selected winner cannot be reached when telephone notification is attempted, is not eligible to win, or does not verbally confirm at that time his/her acceptance of the prize, he/she forfeits the prize and an alternate winner will be chosen and contacted.

The potential winner will be required to complete an affidavit of eligibility, liability and (where legal) publicity release which must be returned within time period specified in the notification letter or, at Sponsor's sole discretion, a potential winner may be disqualified and if so, an alternate potential winner will be selected. Inability to contact a winner or the return of any prize notification as undeliverable will result in the prize being forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner.

Potential Grand Prize winner and his/her guest will be required to submit to, and cooperate in, a confidential background check to confirm eligibility and to help ensure that the use of any such person in advertising or publicity for the Sponsor or this Sweepstakes will not reflect unfavorably on the Sponsor, as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion. Grand Prize winner's guest, who must be 21 years of age or older, will be required to complete and return a notarized liability/publicity release prior to issuance of travel documents. Winner or winner's guest must provide hotel with a major credit card issued in one of their names to cover room security and incidental expenses.

By accepting the Grand Prize, the winner and his/her guest represent that they understand that travel, whether by plane, automobile, or other conveyance, or by foot, contains some inherent element of risk of accident, illness, injury, loss or death, which may be caused by negligence, forces of nature, or other agencies, known or unknown. Grand Prize winner and his/her guest represent that they recognize that such risks may be present at any time before, during and after the trip. In order to be considered the Grand Prize winner and partake of the enjoyment of this trip, Grand Prize winner and his/her guest must be willing to accept the risk, and to confirm their acceptance to such risk in writing at Sponsor's request.
