IMG_7688 copy


We are currently looking for:


DIY Weddings:

We love creative brides and want to see their amazing events, in any theme! From one detail to the entire event – we only publish wedding where the bride/groom have handmade at least one detail that they are willing to discuss.

DIY Beach Weddings:

We love toes in the sand, whether close to home or destination… but again – must be of a DIY focus.

Crafty Engagements/Proposals:

We want to share creative couples making their engagement/proposal shoots unique. The couple also has to have DIY plans for their wedding day.

DIY Bridal Showers:

Since we love the crafty bride, of course we love crafty showers and want to share them.

Holiday Themed Shoots:

From styled shoots to engagements, send us something fun with the next holiday in mind – just make sure to send it over about 4-8 weeks prior to the holiday.

Styled Shoots:

Everyone loves a gorgeous, styled shoot – so send them our way.

Saturday Sum-up Images:

One single, stand alone vertical image with beautiful colors.


Who Can Submit:


Anyone. Brides, Photographers, Planners, Stylists, Florists, etc.

We do ask that as a Vendor submitting an event – please ONLY submit if you have the express written permission of the couple and confirmation that they are willing to share their bridal feedback with us for their feature. Also as a Bride, or another vendor who is not the photographer submitting an event – please ONLY submit if you have the express written permission of the photographer. In simple terms, we want everyone to be aware and excited about their feature.


Image Requirements:


Your images must be sized to at least 660 pixels wide, un-canvased (meaning not designed in a layout) with no watermarks at 72-dpi.

  • Weddings: 150-250 images
  • Proposals, Engagements, Bridal Showers, etc: 50-100 images

We need a mix of vertical and horizontal images, but keep in mind that vertical images take up more space on Pinterest and are pinned about 90x more than horizontal images.


Feature Information:


From a proposal to a wedding… we want all the info and so do our readers!

Please include a brief description of the event, with a short list of what was handmade. We value hearing the stories that our brides/grooms have to tell and we feel that including that information in their feature makes it more interesting and valuable to our readers. We email interview each of our couples (and hearing back is a must) so please include the appropriate email address within your submission.

To speed up your submission/publication time – please feel free to include your couples answers to the regular questions below, that we ask our brides/grooms:

Wedding:

  • What is your favorite wedding day memory?
  • Did you DIY anything for your wedding? If so, what..?
  • What was your something old, new, borrowed, and blue?
  • What is your advice for brides currently in the planning process?

Engagement:

  • How did you find your photographer?
  • Are you DIY-ing anything for your wedding?
  • Of all your wedding plans, what are you looking forward to the most?

Bridal Shower:

  • Tell us about your shower… did you DIY anything?
  • Are you DIY-ing anything for your wedding?
  • Of all your wedding plans, what are you looking forward to the most?

Proposal:

  • Describe your thoughts on your proposal… how did it happen?
  • Were you surprised? How did you find your photographer?
  • Are you DIY-ing anything for your wedding?

How to Submit:


We prefer to take submissions through Two Bright Lights; however we also accept them through DropBox, and email/zip file. We also don’t mind seeing links to vendors blog posts of events, just keep in mind you’ll need to send over the un-canvased files if we decide to share.

We’ll need:

  • Images Sized To At Least 660px Wide
  • Short Description
  • Complete Vendor List With Website Links + Social Profiles
  • Brides Email Address (or) Her Interview
  • EMAIL: submit @ SomethingTurquoise.com with ‘SUBMISSION (your submission title)’ in the subject field.

You will hear back from us, either way, within 15 business days. However, on average we receive around 30 submissions per week, so please bear with us if it takes a while to get back to you. If you haven’t heard back from us within 3 weeks feel free to send a follow up email.


Our Exclusivity Policy:


We prefer to be the first online publisher to share your DIY wedding feature and we ask that you simply space out other features at least 1 month after featured on our site. **Of course, features on participating vendors websites/blogs don’t count :-)
