We’ve been sharing inspiring design and love stories since 2008, and we would love to work with you. Should your submission be declined, please rest assured it simply means that we either know there is a blog out there that would be a better fit for your work, or we’re simply backed up with pending features. No matter our decision, please continue to keep us in mind when shooting and submitting features in the future!
All submissions can be directed to submissions@ruffledblog.com.

-Submission form below

We also ask that you kindly share any known social media handles for all involved vendors – Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google+.

We respond to every wedding or wedding-related submission with feedback. We will do our best to respond as quickly as possible, but due to the high level of submissions we receive, it can take up to 14-21 days for us to review and respond to a submission. If you don’t hear from us within 3 weeks, please be sure to follow up to ensure we received your submission before submitting elsewhere.

DISCLAIMER
By submitting features for consideration to Ruffled, you hereby assume responsibility or ownership of its copyrighted work. Make sure included vendors are all in accordance with the plans to submit a feature. Please do not submit if a submission is pending elsewhere.

Please keep in mind that we are an exclusive blog – if you wish to submit an accepted wedding or shoot elsewhere, we ask that you wait until 90 days have elapsed since your feature date on Ruffled. We continuously promote your feature to make sure it receives the exposure it deserves.

We love diversity. That’s part of what makes Ruffled special and relatable. We do not discriminate or otherwise give priority to weddings based on color, religion, sexual orientation, dress size or national origin. Featured weddings are determined by image quality, decor aesthetics, unique details, settings and fashion styling according to what Ruffled readers love.
