Submit Your Wedding

Would you like your wedding featured in the pages of Seattle Met Bride & Groom? If so, we look forward to hearing from you if you live in Washington or if you were married here. Whether you have the most elaborate of weddings or one that is spectacularly simple — we are interested in featuring your special day in an upcoming issue of Seattle Met Bride & Groom. In each issue we’ll select 5 to 7 Real Weddings. Maybe one of those will be yours!

 

How to Submit Your Wedding for Consideration

Because we want to run recent weddings, please submit your wedding no later than 8 months after your wedding day.

Weddings may be submitted by photographers, couples, or any vendor; whomever submits the images should check with the couple before doing so.

Submit a selection of photos on DVD or CD-ROM or via email. Choose photos that you feel best illustrate the couple and the detailed, specialized, personalized aspects of the wedding and the reception. Look through our published images to get an idea of the types of images we print. Send no more than 20 images by DVD or CD and no more than 15 via email. Images should be low-res. If and when we want to see more, we will request a full set of high-res pictures.

Include your name, email address, and phone number, along with the contact information for the couple, when you submit.

Please make a copy of all materials that you submit as we cannot return them and are not responsible for lost submissions. Send your complete package to:

Seattle Met Bride & Groom
Attn: Real Weddings
1201 Western Ave, Suite 425
Seattle, WA 98101

If submitting via email, send your low-res images to realweddings@seattlemet.com

For more on submitting to Real Weddings, see Laura Cassidy’s Shop Talk blog post on the subject.

Note: Due to the large volume of submittals that we receive, we are not able to individually respond to each submission. If we are considering including your wedding in our pages, we will follow up with a questionnaire, request for vendor references (a list of who performed various services and etc.), and photography and model releases.
