AUBURN – Katie and Slade from Valley, Ala., have won the online voting contest for Auburn University’s first War Eagle Wedding.
Starting Monday, Jan. 23, www.wareaglewedding.com will accept votes on three choices for Katie’s bridal gown. The dresses were designed by Auburn apparel design students Lauren Mellor, Heather Hall, and Eloise Faber. Voting will last one week.
The trio was selected for the competition by a committee who reviewed wedding dress designs from students in the Competitive Design class offered through the Department of Consumer Affairs in the College of Human Sciences. Professors Lenda Jo Connell and Pam Ulrich deliberately altered the goal of the class to accommodate the needs of the campus wedding and provide students with a unique challenge.
