FOUR WEDDINGS SUBMISSIONS
Submit Your Real Weddings, Inspiration and Styled Shoots
It’s that lovely time of year where we are accepting new styled shoot submissions for upcoming posts and features. If you are a photographer, wedding planner, floral designer or anyone in the industry who would love to submit a styled shoot to FOUR MAGAZINES for consideration, please see details below on what we’re looking for and how to submit!
SUBMIT TO FOUR
Get started with a free blog and digital magazine submission. Or become a Preferred Vendor member to enjoy unlimited perks such as reaching more couples, editorial / cover shoots and published in our worldwide print magazines.
What we look for in an editorial submission:
The first thing we look for when considering a wedding shoot to feature in our multimedia is distinctive personal style. We love to see weddings that really show off the personalities of the couple, unique wedding planning ideas and/or details that our readers can get excited about and find inspiration in.
Our editorial content is chosen solely on excellence and its value to our readers. Any wedding professional or couple may submit. Submissions for blog/social media features are reviewed on a weekly basis and require the unanimous agreement of the FOUR Weddings team. Non-Preferred Vendors who submit styled shoots/editorial content are only listed by business name and are not published in our magazines or linked on our website. In contrast, our preferred vendors have editorial features and ads in our magazines, ongoing blog posts with their credit in bold and linked to their vendor listing page here on fourmagazines.com.
Please send your editorial submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include all vendors information that was involved.
We allow (1) one blog submission and (1) one digital magazine feature every (6) six months per non-preferred vendo
STYLED SHOOT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
When submitting, you must include a 50-100 word description about the shoot and how it ties into the theme and images.
Include images of cake, flowers, food/desserts, bouquet shots, paper goods, details, tablescape, venue, etc.
Images MUST be high res and NOT watermarked
I want to send this editorial submission to another blog/print publication. Can I do that?
We have a strict policy for exclusive rights to your content for a minimum time frame. We ask that you please wait for at least 90 days after our feature comes out before submitting to online blogs.
I want to post this editorial submission to my own blog. Can I do that?
Yes, we encourage all wedding vendors to share their work on their blogs, websites and social media! This does not hurt your chances of publication, nor does it violate our exclusivity policy.
REAL WEDDINGS SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
We are looking for the best of the best in real weddings to feature. Y’all know we love what you love – great photography, inspiring love stories and lovely details.
Couples, please be sure you get permission from your photographer to submit. Please email 10-15 good web-quality photos without watermarks to our Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Melisa Kennedy, along with the following information: couple’s name, wedding date, wedding location, and any vendor information you have (names and websites). We only accept digital submissions.
If you are selected, you will be asked to submit hi res photos. Brides, please ask your photographer to submit the above.
How long should I expect to wait before hearing back?
A FOUR team member will get back to you within 10 business days of your submission if it was selected.
