My Ideal Wedding accepts article submissions on nuptial-related themes only. The writing should be informational and informative, and we are happy to review all to see if it is something our readers would like.
Our audience demographic is UK based couples due to be married, who are planning their wedding day. As such, we are only interested in receiving writing relevant to weddings either as blog posts or informative articles.
If you are interested in submitting a wedding-related article, please fill in the write for us form at the bottom of the page or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before submitting am article for submission, please read the below house rules:
Wedding Article Guidelines
Paragraphs and Subheadings: Please divide your content into sub-headings and short paragraphs, which makes it easier for readers to digest.
Links: All outbound links must be relevant to the writing and not breach google policy. Self-promotional links must be agreed in advance or the link may be removed.
Media: Please submit any copyright-free images you would like to use with the post as a featured image and for the content. Please give the source of the images so we can confirm we can use them.
Content we like
We are happy if you want to write for us on any wedding-related topic. Our readers come here for easy to read, informative, engaging and relevant content related to weddings. And if they are happy, so are we. Wedding Planning tips and advice will always be considered valuable.
We like our writing to be interesting and inclusive. For example, did you know coin bearers (similar to ring-bearers) are a custom in Spanish speaking countries? Or that Bridal comes from the old English Bride ale? Or that you can have a man of honour as part of your wedding ceremony participant?
We welcome any well-written articles, particularly if they are engaging, humorous and informative. A wedding is about two people in love uniting in marriage, we want our site to reflect that and not white-wash it.
You can see posts we like on our sitemap page.
Content we don’t like
We will not post any derogatory, abusive, homophobic, misogynistic, or racist opinions. Cultural sensitivity and an open mind are needed. We all have a different image in mind when we think of our ideal wedding, and that is great.
If you want to write for us wedding-related blogs, then all posts and articles should be fully your creation and unique unless the source is given. Please be mindful of copyright laws and that crediting the source does not cover plagiarism. Our writers all get inspiration and information from somewhere, just don’t pass off others hard work as your own.
We are a website for wedding planning, so that’s what our audience come to read about. Anyone who write for us needs to know what is interesting.
Articles must be factual, and must not defame or incite. Controversy, strong opinions, freedom of speech may be acceptable but we want to be informative.
But we absolutely won’t publish anything abusive, homophobic, derogatory, or racist. That is our choice, please respect that. We all have different visions of ideal weddings, we all see beauty differently. Even though we are a UK based site, we want to cover beyond the traditional English Wedding and embrace all cultures.
