So you're thinking of submitting a blog post to Offbeat Wed… AWESOME! We LOVE first-person posts about what it's like to plan an offbeat wedding.

We love posts about…

  • Wedding scripts! Share your ceremony wording, or just your vows.
  • Perspectives from folks who are part of marginalized communities who don't see themselves represented enough in mainstream wedding media — we love being the place on the internet where readers see themselves represented, and have large archives dedicated to our readers who identify as POCdisabledgenderqueer & nonbinaryLGBTQ, etc. We've featured posts from those sharing perspectives about weddings and asexuality, immigration, adoption, and more.
  • Constructive, positive first-person perspectives about dealing with the challenges of wedding planning
  • Thoughts on feminism and weddings/marriage
  • DIY projects, which could be un-crafty stuff like how you DIYed your wedding invitations, how you used web tools to DIY your wedding project management
  • Proposal photos and engagement stories


  • Posts should be under 1000 words
  • Make sure material is spell-checked and edited
  • While we love reading each one, we're not able to publish every guestpost that's submitted. We'll email you within two weeks if we're able to use your post!

Submit your guestpost for consideration
