Real Marriage Submission Guidelines

Weddings are at the heart of all things Brides. We want to tell weddings all the ins and outs of their responsibilities, help guests choose their perfect outfits and, of course, provide guidance to couples as they plan all parts of their celebration. One of our favorite ways to celebrate and inspire couples is through our Real Wedding features. These pieces showcase the stunning photos and details behind the celebrations of real couples, starting with their love story and ending with the important moments that made their wedding special.

We’re always on the lookout for new real weddings to feature and rely on submissions from couples, planners, photographers and PR representatives to help us curate the stories we’ll feature on our site. We love to present weddings with stunning decor, unique stories and breathtaking fashion that can be a resource and inspire our readers.

In addition to the ceremony and reception, we can also present other wedding events like welcome parties, rehearsal dinners and special cultural traditions as part of a real wedding. We shine a light on diverse marriages of couples of all genders and cultures, and we are committed to doing so as a brand.
