5 Things to Make Sure If You Want Your Wedding Published

Did you always dream of having your wedding photos or stories published in the Uber sophisticated pages of the ‘Brides’ magazine or show up on the website of ‘”?  It is trickier than it seems.  Here are five tips on making it more probable than most to get on wedding celebrity list:


Details, Details, Details:
This is often the first one that most brides misses. A wedding publication is interested in a wedding event, not your wedding event. Heck! They weren’t even there. So if you expect your wedding to be published in a magazine or a blog, you must provide them with details as well as documented detailed shots. While you think, that people watching are having fun, don’t send the publisher a lot of shots of lovely people attending your wedding. They are a business, not a social media circuit. Send them lots of detailed shots of the event itself. Things like, the spectacular floral arrangement, the trend-setting décor or the creative table top that your uncle Burt did up for your wedding that was all the rave. The more unique, the more wow, the move trendy it is the better. Here is what one publisher said very frankly about the submission(s) that drives her crazy, “I wish everyone would include the following information with their submissions: the wedding date; the wedding location; and the couple’s names and contact info.” Simple enough, right?


Follow Submission Guidelines (Both Known and Unknown):
Not only should you follow the submission guidelines of your preferred magazine or online site/blog, You should also familiarize yourself with the idea that wedding publishers like other businesses have sponsors and advertisers they have to please, rivals they have to avoid, trends they have to fall in line with and places they have to include. A lot of this is not made public but the more you know, the better.

Find the Inspiration For Your Wedding To Reflect in Your Wedding:
The publishers have seen a million wedding photos for as many sources. The can point out a fake or a copycat. Find your own inspiration for your love and your big day and let it reflect in everything you produce to send to the publisher. Unique combinations are welcome, action shots are great, genuine smiles and true emotions come out shining through. Let them be.

Inconsistent Color Pallet Is a Doozy:
We hear it from brides consistently that despite putting their best foot forward, they never heard from the publisher. The first thing to do here is to check if your invitation matches the overall color pallet of your wedding photos. If not, bingo! You caught your culprit.

Don’t Publish Your Wedding on Social Media Ahead of the Magazine:
The first thing a publisher will do after realizing that you have what they’ve been looking for is to find out if you have already shown your colors online. If it is out in the social media by the tons, your wedding memories, no matter how precious and original, are not unique any longer.
