General Questions

1. How do I submit my wedding to be considered for publication in the magazine or online?

We currently publish five real weddings per week online, and usually include 4-5 real weddings in our yearly issue, which hits stands in December. Please note that we require exclusivity and therefore ask that you do not submit a wedding that has already been published in other magazines or blogs. To submit your wedding for consideration, send the following information about your wedding to

  1. Your name
  2. Wedding location(s)
  3. Wedding date
  4. Your wedding photographer's name and email address
  5. A brief paragraph about what makes your wedding special, highlighting the details and ideas you think were most important
  6. A link to a website with 100-150 photos that you think represent your wedding best, either via a Dropbox folder or Pixieset. Please be sure to include any necessary passwords. Please do not send Facebook links or WeTransfers.

If your wedding has not taken place yet but you would like us to consider it, please send us the first five items listed above, as well as the vendors you are working with, and any visuals or additional information that will help us get a better idea of what you have in mind for your big day.

We will contact you if we are interested in getting more information from you.

2. Are articles and recipes from the magazine posted online?

Not all articles and recipes are accessible online. If you are seeking a particular article, recipe, or project that isn't online, we recommend visiting your local library to find a back issue.

Type what you are searching for into the white box at the top of the page and click "search." Matches will load. In some cases, the issue date in which the article, recipe, or project you desire will be included in the matches.

3. How do I search the site?

To search the site, simply type in a keyword (or words) in the white box at the top of each page. Once you have entered a keyword (or words), click on the orange button that reads "search." If you did not find what you were looking for:

  • Make sure all the words are spelled correctly.
