Submit your wedding to Offbeat Wed

Submit your wedding for publication consideration

This is for couples submitting their wedding stories.

Vendor submissions

Thanks for your interest in sharing your wedding with us! Although we can't feature every wedding submitted, we love reading every single one.

Important things to understand before you submit your wedding:

  • If we accept your submission, it can be several months before we publish your profile.
  • Profiles are often edited for length and clarity.
  • If your wedding is published, we will do our best to email you when the post goes up. Please understand that we are a very small team, and that we're not able to email before the post is published.
  • When you submit your wedding and your story, you are giving us permission to publish what you share. Please don't submit anything you're not comfortable putting out into the world! This means stuff like please don't bad-mouth your family members or share private vows that your partner doesn't want others to see, etc.
  • By submitting a post, you and your photographer and any other featured vendors are agreeing to our Terms of Use including our policies regarding copyright and user content. Please make sure you get your photographer's permission before submitting to our site.
  • Note that we do request three months of editorial exclusivity after publication.

Let's do this!

Your wedding profile

The first few questions are required, but the later questions are optional.
  • Just your first name is fine.
  • NEVER be shared, but we want to notify you when your profile goes up!
  • Feel free to link your website, Insta, TikTok, or other social media.
  • Be specific, ie not just city and state, but venue such as "Friend's back yard in Seattle, WA." Include the URL for your venue if you have one!
  • Enter month, date, and year.
    MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • For example, Ariel would describe her wedding as a "Island hippie/raver forest freak-fest." We'll work this into the title of your profile.
  • Your wedding photos

  • Please share a link to a folder on a file sharing service such as Dropbox or Google Drive. PLEASE DO NOT SHARE MORE THAN 50 photos to the folder! Photos should be sized at NO WIDER THAN 1080 PIXELS.
  • We like to make sure photographers are always attributed and linked. Please give us the name of your primary wedding photographer. (If you used more than one, you can tell us all about it in the Vendor link section.)
  • Be sure to include the http://
  • By checking this box, you confirm that you've secured permission from your photographer to submit your photos for publication. We suggest talking to with your photographer to see if they've submitted the wedding somewhere else.
  • Of course you can share your wedding story with whoever you want, but we like to respect other bloggers by not reproducing weddings they've posted. If we decide to feature your wedding, we'll email you to check that it hasn't already appeared elsewhere.
  • Only if you'd like this included!
  • Now, the fun stuff!

    PEOPLE ESPECIALLY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR ONLINE VENDORS -- if you bought your clothes or jewelry online, share!!
  • On Offbeat Wed, we tag posts with identity descriptors like "nonbinary" or "neurodivergent" to help readers navigate the site and find content that relates to them. If one of these identities figured into your wedding planning and is something you talk about in the profile, do you want to apply any of these identity tags to you, your partner, or your wedding?
  • If none of the tags above describe you, your partner, or wedding, enter your own tags!
