The idea of being able to showcase new and original wedding ideas to inspire other brides really thrills me, and so I’m totally excited to know you’re interested in having your wedding or your wedding related work featured here on Our Sweet Love. Of course a proud bride and groom wanting to showcase how they brought together each tiny detail to craft a truly spectacular event is the perfect type of submission, but I am also looking for proud wedding vendors and stylists like photographers, wedding planners, florists, invitation designers and stylists who want to have their work out there to ignite that spark in someone else.
I’m on the hunt for truly unique weddings, a day that is full of fun, love and celebration. The days that really inspire are ones that ooze the couple’s personalities; a day that celebrates their love. The weddings that will feature strongly on Our Sweet Love will be creative, set in a unique or meaningful location, have immaculate styling and design as well as demonstrate a sharp eye for reinventing current and past trends.
I also realise that a wedding day isn’t a standalone event, there are many celebrations and inspirations that happen along the way. Our readers also love to see romantic and fun proposals, spectacular engagement photography, invitation ideas, fashion for the big day, and the little other parties that each bride looks forward to.
Does this sound like you? Below are the requirements for me if I am to feature your wedding.
What type of information do you need?
First and foremost I would love to know your inspirations and ideas. What made you style the day the way you did? What little unique quirks that you and your partner share did you foreground on your day? What was your favourite moment? What would you do differently? If you were asked to provide advice for brides currently planning their day, what would you tell them? I’d also like to have a list of your vendors so I can showcase each for newly engaged couples. Don’t forget to tell me about your DIY details or any special features of your day too.
What kind of images do you need?
Our Sweet Love is image heavy. This is where most brides get their inspiration. Saying that, we would love for you to submit between 25-50 images. Make sure they vary – wedding portraits, bridal party moments, ceremony and reception shots and make sure you don’t forget detail shots.
What size do you need them to be?
Images should be between 600 pixels and 800 pixels wide. Please do not have watermarks on the images.
Who do I send them to?
The easiest way to send them is through dropbox.com or yousendit.com in one folder or zip file. The email account you send your link through to should be oursweetloveblog at gmail dot com.
Will I get told if my wedding will be featured?
I will try to get back to you within two weeks. This should provide me enough time to work out if your wedding is a good fit for Our Sweet Love and piece together the blog post. Make sure you don’t forget to tell me if you have already featured this elsewhere or on your own blog.
Do you also accept DIY projects or ideas?
Absolutely! If you have a great idea that we can share with our readers, please send it through to oursweetloveblog at gmail dot com. Make sure you accompany good quality images of the steps that we can feature also.
