Why Should I Submit My Wedding?
If you’re a recent bride or groom, there are so many wonderful reasons to submit your wedding to be shared!
1 • To preserve the memories.
Let’s be real, professional photography can cost a significant amount (and our budget-savvy readers value that service highly!) Get more mileage out of your photography spend by getting those gorgeous images featured online!
2 • To say thanks to your vendors.
Your wedding vendors worked hard to give you a beautiful wedding day, so give them an extra “thank you” by getting their work featured! Getting work published is a huge chance of exposure and free marketing for vendors in the wedding industry.
3 • Share your advice and insights.
Now that you’ve been there, done that, you have gained knowledge and experience that could be helpful to other couples who are planning their big day on a budget. Pay it forward and let the world know your savvy secrets!
4 • To surprise your partner.
Wouldn’t it be such a nice surprise to share with your spouse as you approach your first wedding anniversary? Our real wedding features ask questions that will walk you down memory lane by sharing your love story!
5 • To prove beautiful weddings are possible on a budget.
Our mission is to show as many couples as possible that it is possible to plan a beautiful wedding you’re proud of on a budget you can afford. Help us prove that it’s possible by sharing your story!
The best time to submit is within a year of your wedding, as the details and insights will still be fresh in your mind. What are you waiting for? Submit your wedding today!
