Here's the thing: we all know that the two of you joining your lives together in a tangible way is the truly paramount part of your wedding day. And I'd say that being surrounded by so many of your close friends and family-all in one place-is rather significant as well.
But after spending months-sometimes years-on planning your exquisite nuptials, many couples are happy to have their day celebrated on a wedding blog. It's fun to share what you've created!
Perhaps you've given this no thought one way or the other, but read further because maybe just maybe your wedding would be a good fit for publication.
It may feel overwhelming, but having had quite a few of our weddings and shoots published, we're here to help.
What do I need to get my wedding published?
First of all, please chant this with us:
Details, details, details.
And the more *unique* details you have, the better. Get your inspiration from Pinterest if you must, but put your own spin on the particulars of your big day.
Another thing to remember, is to leave a good amount of time for the photos of the two if you. This can often be lost in the whirl of things vying for time on your day. But blogs love dreamy couple photos..and so do we!
(We'll be posting a blog on wedding photography + your timeline on a Wedding Monday soon, soon!)
You may feel intimidated by the thought of planning a blog-worthy wedding, but it should be noted that you don't need a $100K budget in order to style a wedding that is publishable.
Your union can be simple, simple, simple- and as long as it's done well, your chances of being published are greater.
Bridal Musings recently published a wedding we shot and their post started like this: Sometimes the most simple weddings, are the most special. And Tobi and Cait’s sweet DIY wedding, was pretty special.
Meet Cait and Tobi-
You can sneak a peek at two of our most recently published weddings to get an idea of what the finished product looks like.

Lastly, if you are in love with a particular wedding blog, style your wedding according to what you see published on their site to increase your chances of publication. And work with us-let us know this is important to you and we can help you submit your wedding to the best-fit blog.
If it's in the budget we also suggest a wedding planner or stylist for your day. This takes quite a bit of the workload off you and helps take those details to the next level.
