Submit a Wedding

HOW TO SUBMIT
First of all, thank you for your interest in submitting your wedding or shoot! 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 be rest assured that you might be selected with future submissions. No matter our decision, please continue to keep us in mind when shooting and submitting features in the future!

HOW TO SUBMIT
We welcome a number of different methods for sending images, but if sharing through Dropbox, please send a direct link to the Dropbox folder in lieu of a Dropbox folder invitation and please ensure that “home” is not present in the URL, or we won’t be able to access it. A direct link saves us both time and space, and will ensure a quicker response. Here are an assortment of our preferred ways to share images:

-Dropbox folder link
-PASS Gallery link
-Pixieset link

We respond to every wedding or wedding-related submission that follows our guidelines. 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 3 weeks 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.

Please note: we’re no longer accepting submissions via Two Bright Lights

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, as we do not retract scheduled features. Be advised we will not respond to submissions without images and list of vendors.

EXCLUSIVITY

If your submission is accepted to be featured on Ruffled, 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. This is specially important in social media channels.

Please do not submit any image to be shared on other publisher’s social media accounts if your feature is accepted. It takes us time to prepare and write your post as well as host a significant amount of images at a high-quality resolution to publish your post. We promote your feature continuously throughout the entire year and we often share it multiple times on Instagram. Scheduling social media shares, writing captions, researching hashtags that are appropriate for your feature, this all takes time. We try our best to honor our features and we ask to return the favor.

#LOVEISLOVE
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 and trends, unique details, settings and fashion styling according to what Ruffled readers love.

  • Contact info

    If you're the Bride, Groom or someone related to the couple submitting on their behalf, please make sure you have permission from the Photographer to share the images.
  • Your Submission

  • In a few words, please describe your Submission.
  • What makes your Submission special? Here you are free to brag about your wedding or work, tell us why it's a fit for Ruffled and all other tidbits we love to know - mentions of DIY projects, how the concept or vision of the wedding or shoot was created, any funny stories about how the couple met or came across their venue, etc.
  • PLEASE DO NOT SEND US DROPBOX INVITATIONS OR LINKS TO BLOG POSTS

    -Dropbox folder link
    -PASS Gallery link
    -Pixieset link

    IMAGES NEED TO BE AT LEAST 1500PX WIDE

    Note: If using a Dropbox link, please make sure your link does not have the word "home" listed -- we need a direct link to the folder. Also, WE WILL NOT RESPOND TO ANY SUBMISSIONS SENT WITH ONLY A BLOG LINK. We require the actual image files in order to accept a feature.
  • If you're a wedding vendor submitting a real wedding, please provide a contact email of the bride, groom, or event planner so he or she may be contacted for more information about the wedding day.
    If you're submitting content that is time sensitive or seasonal and that needs to be published within the next 2 weeks for whatever reason, please let us know. Please note that once your Feature is accepted, we do not delete scheduled posts, so please make sure you are not waiting to hear from other publications.

    Please add "Time Sensitive" to the title of your submission (same disclaimers apply).

  • Vendor Credits

  • We need vendor information from everyone hired or involved with website and social media handle of each. For example:

    White Diamond Photo
    http://whitediamondphoto.com
    photo @whitediamondphoto


    We try to include everyone in our social media shoutouts, but if someone's tag is missing and/or if we are unable to find it, we cannot be held responsible for not including it. Please make sure all social media handles are working!

    If you notice a broken link, tag, typo or mixup in the vendor list, please email us at corrections@ruffledblog.com. We don't check DMs and comments left on social media are not seen as quickly as emails.
  • NOTICE

    This submission is not currently pending a decision from any other wedding publication. It will not be submitted to any other wedding blogs, online magazines or print until and unless it has been declined by Ruffled. Other vendors involved in the making of this wedding, shoot, or session have been informed of my submission to Ruffled. I understand that once I submit this work for a feature, once accepted, it will not be removed under any circumstance.
