For Real Wedding Submissions
Send your submission to theclassicbride@gmail.com and please include:
- Name of couple
- Wedding location - city, state, and venues
- A list of all vendors included in the day with URL links, if applicable
- Information about the day, preferably provided by the bride and/or groom. I've provided a few starter questions below but am looking for a well-rounded story of the day. :) The more details, the better!
- Send 50-60 images via Dropbox, Hightail, etc. The images need to include a good variety of beautiful details {flowers, stationery, cake, etc.}, emotional shots and images of the venue{s}. Please ensure that all images are in a .jpeg or .gif format and measure 600 pixels in width and are void of logos and/or watermarks.

Questions for the bride and/or groom:
- Tell us your love story - how did you meet and fall in love? :)
- Describe your wedding day with one word.
- Tell us about the location and style you chose and why.
- Did you include any antiques in your wedding decor? If so, please share your favorites and how you sourced them. :)
- Tell us about the moment you knew you had found *your* dress. How did you know?
- Tell us if you chose to have a wedding party. If so, please tell us how you chose your bridesmaids + groomsmen. And, perhaps even trickier, how did you choose their attire?
- What were your favorite special touches from the wedding? Did you include any family heirlooms or special family traditions?
- Your favorite memory of the day?
- If you could give one piece of advice to yourself back when you were a bride-to-be/groom-to-be, what would it be?
- And, lastly, where did you head for your honeymoon? :)

Unfortunately, I may not have time to respond to all submissions. If I'm in need of more information or am interested in sharing your submission, I will definitely let you know. And please keep in mind that I will not respond to mass e-mails and/or press releases. Thanks!
