Hooray! We're so excited that you're thinking of sharing your story with Offbeat Bride. Although we can't feature every submission we receive, we feel honored that you want to share your thoughts with us.

First, an important note about our editorial priorities:

Since 2007, Offbeat Bride has been the place on the web where offbeat couples can see folks like THEM. We have large archives dedicated to readers who identify as BIPOC, disabled, genderqueer & nonbinary, and LGBTQ. We've featured posts from those sharing perspectives about weddings and asexuality, immigration, adoption, and so much more. We prioritize featuring those who feel unseen, and we always focus on submissions featuring folks and communities that are underserved by wedding media.

Now, here's how to submit a wedding:

Wedding submissions from couples:

While we can't feature every wedding that's submitted to us, we love seeing every one! Keep in mind that we do prioritize real weddings from folks who identify as BIPOC, disabled, genderqueer & nonbinary, and LGBTQ.

And here's how to submit a general interest post:

Here's the kind of stuff we're into these days:

  • Wedding scripts! Share your ceremony wording, or just your vows.
  • Constructive, positive first-person perspectives about dealing with the challenges of wedding planning
  • Perspectives from folks who are part of marginalized communities who don't see themselves represented enough in mainstream wedding media.
  • DIY posts: how you made it!
  • PS to our wedding vendor friends: We do not do "link trades" for posts written by vendors for businesses. If you'd like to promote a business or product to our readers, join us as a sponsor.
