Submit a Wedding Thank you so much for considering Southern Weddings as the place to share your work or your wedding! We are grateful!
When choosing weddings for our site, we look for gorgeous (natural, light-filled, minimally processed) photography, meaningful SOUTHERN details, and a sincere love story.
To be considered for an online real wedding feature, the wedding must have taken place in the Southeastern United States OR have a Southern component or appeal to Southern brides in some way. To be considered for a print real wedding feature, the wedding must have taken place in the Southeastern United States.
Photographers: Please email 20-25 good web-quality .jpg attachments (do not embed in email or send slideshows; do NOT send individual images over 1 MB each) to Emily (emily at southernweddings dot com) along with the following information: couple’s name, wedding date, wedding location, and main vendors. We are also happy to review PASS/Pixieset galleries of 20-25 photos or links to Dropbox folders with 20-25 photos. Please do NOT send Dropbox links to download or invite us to join your Dropbox folder.
Brides: We are TRULY honored that you would think of us as a home for your wedding. While we wish we could publish every devoted reader’s celebration, we get 75-100 submissions a week and publish just 4-5 a week, and so don’t have room for every submission. Please don’t think your celebration is any less special if we don’t have a spot for it! If you would like to submit, please ask your photographer to do the above. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Due to the high volume of submissions, we unfortunately cannot respond to all inquiries. If the wedding is chosen, we will email you to request an interview from the couple and additional details. If you have not heard back from us within three weeks, we welcome you to submit your work to another publication.
All submissions are considered simultaneously for both the blog and for print unless you specify otherwise. Please note we do have a strict exclusivity policy and cannot share work that has been featured on another blog or in another publication. If you think your submission is perfect for print, we recommend you do not even share it on your own blog before sending it to us. Submissions for V9 are closed. We are currently accepting submissions for V10, which will debut in fall 2017.
We do also consider styled shoots for blog and print features, though we publish them far less frequently than real weddings. We also publish engagement series on our Facebook page in a series called “Facebook Friday.” Please submit these types of features using the same guidelines as above. We generally do not publish “trash the dress” sessions or bridal sessions.
For styled shoot submissions, keep in mind that our most important criteria is that the shoot have an authentic Southern heartbeat and that it tell a story.
We are also happy to review submissions through Two Bright Lights. Please note that TBL submissions can take us up to a month to review.
Thank you so much for thinking of Southern Weddings as a showcase for your work! We look forward to collaborating with you!



We currently publish real weddings and celebrations two to three times a week on, and usually include five to 11 in each issue of the magazine, and are constantly looking for great events to feature. 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, including the blog of the photographer or other vendors involved. We also do not accept styled shoots at this time. To submit your wedding, rehearsal dinner, welcome party, bridal shower, vow renewal, or other wedding-related event for consideration, send the following information about your wedding to
