Vendors:

THIS FORM IS NOT FOR YOU. This is for couples submitting their wedding stories.

 Vendor submissions

Thanks for your interest sharing your wedding with Offbeat Bride! Although we can't feature every wedding submitted, we love reading every single one. If you want to know what we look for in submissions, read this post: tips on profile submission. Remember that we often edit profiles for length and clarity.

If we accept your submission, it can be several months before we publish your profile. Please be patient with us, and we promise to email before your wedding is published! If you want to know more about how we pick which weddings to feature,  click here.


Let's do this!

  • Just your first name is fine.
  • NEVER be shared, but we want to notify you when your profile goes up!
  • This could be a link to a personal site or a social media profile. Basically, how can our readers learn more about you?
  • Be specific, ie not just city and state, but venue such as "Friend's back yard in Seattle, WA." Include the URL for your venue if you have one!
  • Enter month, date, and year.
  • For example, Ariel would describe her wedding as a "Island hippie/raver forest freak-fest." We'll work this into the title of your profile.
  • Your wedding photos

  • Sorry, we cannot accept photos posted on Facebook -- your photos MUST be uploaded Dropbox or Flickr. Please limit yourself to 100 photos.
  • We like to make sure photographers are always attributed and linked. Please give us the name of your primary wedding photographer. (If you used more than one, you can tell us all about it in the Vendor link section.)
  • By checking this box, you confirm that you've secured permission from your photographer to share your photos online.
  • Of course you can share your wedding story with whoever you want, but we like to respect other bloggers by not reproducing weddings they've posted. If we decide to feature your wedding, we'll email you to check that it hasn't already appeared elsewhere.
  • Now, the fun stuff!

    Here's where you get to tell us all about your wedding!
  • Was there a theme to your wedding? What was the general gist?
  • Feel free to highlight any interesting music, traditions, alternatives to traditions, ceremony rituals, decor, special moments, and readings.
  • Feel free to highlight the vibe, food, favors, decor, and any particularly sweet or funny moments.
  • What was your biggest wedding planning challenge, and how did you overcome it? What advice would you like to impart to Offbeat Bride readers? Anything else you want to share?
  • Please follow this general format for your vendor list

  • On Offbeat Bride, we tag posts with identity descriptors like "plus-size" and "lesbian wedding" to help readers navigate the site and find content that relates to them. That said, we ALWAYS let readers self-identify ... so now we'll ask: do you want to apply any of these identity tags to you, your partner, or your wedding?
  • If none of the tags above describe you, your partner, or wedding, enter your own tags!

If your submission goes through, you'll see a confirmation after you click Submit. If you do NOT see a confirmation after clicking Submit, then scroll up the page to see what might need to be fixed.
