Submit Your Real Wedding to BRIDES
How do the editors of BRIDES choose the real weddings we feature in our online Real Weddings gallery and in the magazine? It's not easy. Each month, we receive thousands of real wedding submissions from our community. Our editors spend hours pouring over these submissions, oohing and aahing all the while. (It's kind of a dream job, don't you think?) Ultimately, we go for great photography, unusual ideas, and gorgeous locations.
To submit a real wedding, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at:
4 Times Square, 8th floor
New York, NY 10036
Please include the following information with your submission:
- • 20-25 images that include detailed shots of your ceremony, reception, cake, centerpieces, invitations, place cards, flowers, bridal party, gown, and accessories
- • Personal anecdotes about your gown, how you and your spouse met, what inspired your wedding style and how you planned your wedding.
- • The name, website and contact information for your photographer
- • Your wedding date and location
- • Your contact information including email and phone number
Because we receive a high volume of submissions, we will contact you if we are interested in possibly featuring your wedding (all submitted materials will not be returned). Please note that we require exclusivity and are unable to feature weddings that have already been published in other magazines, websites, or blogs.
Thank you and congratulations!
