Hi, wedding vendors!

We welcome your submission! But if your client or couple would prefer to submit their wedding themselves, direct them to this handy-dandy questionnaire!

If, however, you'd like to submit a wedding to us directly, please read this page carefully…

Vendor submission guidelines

  • Diversity is our highest editorial priority. Since most of our reader submissions are young white straight couples, and the wedding industry is generally challenged by reflecting diversity, we strongly favor vendor submissions featuring diversity in ethnicity, culture, LGBTQ, the gender spectrum, older couples, people with disabilities, diversity in body size, etc.). We recognize that prioritizing diversity can be a sensitive subject, and we need your help to make sure we're representing people from ALL walks of life on Offbeat Bride.
  • Minimal watermarking. We're obsessive with attribution. We credit and link photographers at the top and bottom of our posts.
  • 800+ pixels wide. No need for print resolution here! A web-friendly size is good.
  • Note: By submitting a post, you’re agreeing to our Terms of Use including our policies regarding copyright and user content. We do not feature work submitted to other wedding publications and request three months of exclusivity after it is published. You are free to showcase your work on your own blog and social media, however.
  • Although you may have rights to feature your work where you like, we do ask that the clients are aware of being featured once you're accepted.
  • If we are not able to feature your submission, we'll get back to you within two weeks so that you can submit it elsewhere.
  • Our publication queue is often a few months long, so it's not likely we'll be able to publish an accepted shoot earlier than that timeline, though exceptions are made.
  • Read some tips for getting your submission accepted to wedding blogs.

Ready? Let's do this!

  • If you have a listing in our guide at http://vendors.offbeatbride.com, we want to know!
  • Link to your vendor listing here (and thanks for being part of our vendor community!)
  • This will never be shared with anyone.
  • Your business's webpage.
  • Give us the elevator pitch: what's this submission about?
  • Date Format: MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • Give us a link to a Dropbox, Flickr, Google Photos, etc. of around 50-100 unwatermarked photos of the wedding you're submitting. At least 800px WIDE (not just tall). Links to websites with non-downloadable images will not be considered.
  • If the couple would like this included
  • Help us give other vendors at this wedding due credit. Common inclusions are Venue, Coordinator, Flowers, Cake, Dress, etc. Please provide as many names and websites as possible. If you submit without links, we can't guarantee they will be included.
    Please use this format:
    Venue: Venue Name http://venuelink.com @venueinsta
    Please also include an Instagram handle, if available, so we can credit them there as well!
  • Tell us a bit about the wedding you're submitting for consideration. Tell us about special meanings, cool decor, anything you think we should really pay attention to.
  • Include any details or commentary from the couple, if available.
  • In plain English: this means you own the rights to these images, and you're ok with us publishing them on our blog. We reserve the right to publish them multiple times (for instance once in a post about the wedding, and later in a round-up about wedding dresses). Images are only ever used editorially, and you can request removal at any time. We request that the wedding has not been published anywhere other than your own blog/social media and that no other blog publishes it for three months after publication.
