Vendor submission guidelines
- Diversity is our highest editorial priority.
Since most of our reader submissions are young white straight couples, and mainstream wedding media SUCKS at diversity, we strongly favor vendor submissions featuring diversity in ethnicity, culture, LGBTQ, the gender spectrum, older couples, body size and ability, neurodiversity, etc. We recognize that prioritizing diversity can be a sensitive subject, but we need your help to make sure we're representing people from ALL walks of life on Offbeat Wed.
- Confirm your clients are ok with you submitting their wedding.
Although own the photo rights and legally be allowed to submit your work whereever you like, we do ask that you ensure your clients actually want to be featured before you submit. 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:
- Only 50 photos. We know you took 500+ gorgeous photos for your clients, but we only want to see highlights.
- Minimal watermarking. We're obsessive about attribution. We credit and link photographers at the top and bottom of our posts. Please don't over-watermark your images.
- 1080 pixels wide. No need for print resolution here! A web-friendly size is good.
- Our publication queue is often a few months long, so you'll need to be patient.
- Read some tips for getting your submission accepted to wedding blogs.
