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 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.
- Confirm your clients are ok with you submitting their wedding.
Although you may have rights to submit your work where you like, we do ask that the clients are aware of being featured once you’re accepted. It’s super awkward when we get emails from privacy-minded couples asking us to take their vendor-submitted wedding down. We always comply.
- Photo requirements:
- Minimal watermarking. We’re obsessive with attribution. We credit and link photographers at the top and bottom of our posts
- 1080 pixels wide. No need for print resolution here! A web-friendly size is good.
- 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.
