Submit a Real Wedding

WHO CAN SUBMIT A REAL WEDDING: The bride, photographer or any of the vendors involved with the wedding are able to submit. Usually the bride or photographer takes the lead and submits on behalf of the others, but that is not a rule.

HOW TO SUBMIT: Please submit your photos via a link and password/download pin to a downloadable gallery- without an expiration date. Gallery links not allowing downloads or those with low resolution or watermarked images will not be considered. CDs, dropbox albums and USBs will not be considered. Photos should already be fully edited and ready for publication at the time of submitting. There will not be time to send photos back to the photographer to touch up before publishing.

WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED: A variety of shots is preferable. The more photos the better (50-200 is sufficient). Arkansas Bride is most interested in dynamic images that depict the wedding’s unique details, for example:

  • Details and decor
  • Personalized/themed elements
  • Tablescapes/décor/flowers
  • Couple Portraits
  • Signature cuisine/cocktails
  • Stationery/favors
  • Specialty lighting
  • Band/DJ in action
  • Striking cakes
  • Venues
  • Bridesmaids
  • First dance

THE DEADLINES TO SUBMIT: Submission deadlines are always in March and August each year. Formal dates are set in early February for the March deadline and in late July for the August deadline. Email or check our social media at that time for dates.

The photographer agrees that by submitting photos to Arkansas Bride, the editors of Arkansas Bride reserve the right to publish them in print and online without needing to gain further consent for each future use.

*Brides: By submitting, you agree that you have rights to your photos and/or photographer approval.
