Submit A Real Wedding

We welcome submissions from brides, photographers, venues, florists, weddings planners, and other wedding industry professionals.  We believe in giving our fashion-forward readers creative and unique ideas that they can utilize when planning their own weddings.  And a good story to go along with the photos is always a big plus.

Our real wedding posts feature a wide range of candid shots that cover all aspects of the wedding so we typically like to use somewhere between 20 and 50 images.  You can submit your real wedding on the form below.

Please keep in mind the following when submitting a real wedding:

  • Submissions must be exclusive to Here Comes The Blog.  The same wedding cannot be published elsewhere.
  • Once a wedding is submitted to us for consideration, it cannot be retracted.
  • Please create only one submission per wedding.
  • You must own the rights to the images that you upload OR you must have a written release from the photographer with permission to use the images.
  • Horizontal images must be at least 700 pixels wide and vertical images at least 350 pixels wide.
  • We prefer individual images to be uploaded (not collages).  Dropbox is our preferred method of delivery so you can simply upload the images there and then share the url on the submission form below.
  • Please include as many details and personal stories as possible with the images.  If you are an industry professional, please be sure to contact the bride to ask for her input.
  • Please include a list of vendors with links to their sites.
  • If you are a wedding professional, we will include a link back to your business website at the top of the post (as well as in the vendor section).

If you have questions, please email us at submissions@herecomestheblog.com
