Offbeat Bride Submissions

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 wedding or photo shoot with us. We accept real weddings, styled shoots, and guest posts from couples, readers, and vendors.

Note: We don't publish shoots or weddings that have been featured on similar wedding blogs and request editorial exclusivity for three months after publication, though you're free to share photos on your own blogs and social media before that time. By submitting a post, you’re agreeing to our Terms of Use including our policies regarding copyright and user content.

Submit a guestpost or advice question

There's no need to email us with a pitch — just submit your guestpost!

Tips about tone:

Offbeat Bride is about inspiring, communicating, supporting, and cheerleading. We're also committed to body-positive language and inclusivity. We avoid hetero-normativity (not every wedding has a bride and groom) and our readers hate gender essentialism ("women care about this, men care about that"). If these concepts aren't familiar to you, please take some time with our website before submitting.

Hey, wedding vendors: 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.

The seven most common reasons for posts being rejected:

  1. Written by an SEO marketing firm or writer representing a commercial site
  2. Doesn't fit our voice (body-positive, LGBTQ-inclusive, gender-neutral, etc)
  3. Reveals overly personal family issues, perhaps without family member consent
  4. Too similar to a recent post, or a post that we are planning to run
  5. Fiction, poetry, or otherwise not a format we publish

Submission disclaimer

When you submit work to us:

  • You grant your consent to let us publish your wedding blog submission on Offbeat Bride and associated media properties.
  • You also grant your consent to let us edit it for length, tone, and clarity.
  • We can't publish everything we get. Please don't take it personally — there are lots of factors that go into how we choose content to feature, and none of it has to do with how awesome you are.
  • We do not accept submissions from SEO marketing firms
