Submissions

We accept submissions from brides, photographers, planners and other industry professionals. We are currently accepting submissions in the following categories:

*Real Weddings

*DIY Projects

If you have another idea for a submission, email us! We are always looking for different and original material!

Please Note: Submissions are no longer limited to the east coast, we are now accepting events from all over the world!

We want to provide brides with original content, therefore we prefer submissions that have not been featured elsewhere. However, if you feel a wedding is a great fit for our site, please submit and let us know any other blogs on which the event was featured.

**If you are applying to submit, it is assumed that you have permission from the photographer to publish the photos.

Submission Guidelines 

What we look for in the photos:

*Details! It’s the little touches that make a wedding unique to a couple and those delightful details are what we love. Include the pictures of your rings, centerpieces, place settings, bouquets, and escort cards – everything that made the wedding personal for you.
*Fun and original poses and ideas
*DIY items – showcase the projects that you spent countless hours cutting and gluing and that kept you running to your local arts and crafts store
*Engaging/modern/romantic photography
*Photography that capture the emotions throughout the day

Please try to avoid formal posed group shots, lots of guest photos and too many black and white photos (we want to see your color palette)!

*Real Weddings

Send approximately 50 images in a .zip file along with the following information to theeastcoastbride@gmail.com:

Hint: Your chances of being accepted for publication increase if the questions and vendor information are completed and sent along with the photos! We do NOT want to have to track these down!
