Kim Forrest is one of WeddingWire’s editors. She manages content creation on both WeddingWire and EventWire. Kim has been writing about weddings for nearly a decade, and has been quoted as a weddings expert in the New York Times, Washington Post, Slate, and more.
One of my favorite parts of being an editor is looking through the many real wedding submissions we receive. We are always looking for the most creative real weddings to inspire engaged couples – ones with amazing and unique details, beautiful photography, emotional moments, and genuine joy and celebration.
To help make it easier for Wedding Pros to submit real weddings for consideration, we have updated our real wedding submission form. Now located on RealWeds.com, we hope this form will streamline the process of submitting photos to WeddingWire and our sister site, Project Wedding. You can learn more about our submission process, upload your photos directly through the form, and share all the details about the wedding with us.
And – breaking news! – we’ve just opened up the submission process for our SummerBook. Hopefully you’ve all taken a look at our SpringBook (which has received just over a million page views thus far), and saw our beautiful real wedding features. Here’s what we’re looking for for the SummerBook:
- Weddings must have taken place in the summer (late June – early September) within the past two years.
- An abundance of creative details (bouquets, centerpieces, stationery, food, favors, and more!)
- Submission must include at least 75 photos – mostly color, if possible
- High-quality images with no watermarks
Just check the SummerBook box in the real wedding submission form if you’d like us to consider a particular wedding for the book. Please make sure you have the permission of the couple and photographer before contacting us – if your wedding submission is accepted, we’ll want to reach out to the couple for a brief interview. And please disclose if the wedding has been or will be featured in another publication. All submissions are due by Monday, April 21st.
