Please note: We only take wedding submissions from readers of the blog, who are writing about their own weddings and marriages. We do not take submissions from photographers and other wedding industry professionals, as APW is a community-content driven site. If you are a photographer or another kind of wedding elf, and would like to reach out to APW couples and have your work featured on the blog, please consider advertising with the site. We love hooking up sane vendors with grounded couples.
Share The Story Of Your Wedding (or Your Parents’ Wedding):
If you think the story of your wedding is best told through words, and you’d like to share what you learned during your wedding planning journey, we’d love if you submitted a wedding graduate post, which you can do right here. If it’s your parents or grandparents wedding story that you’d like to share, we might be even more excited. You can share a Vintage Wedding using this form.
Share Your Wedding In Pictures:
If you think your wedding story is best told visually, we’d love if you submit it as a Wordless Wedding, which you can do right here. For this feature, we ask that you give us access to the most complete gallery of wedding photos possible, to help us tell your story.

Share A Picture:
If you’d just like to share a few pictures from your wedding, upload a few pictures of your wedding to the APW Flickr stream. By uploading images to the APW Flickr stream, you are giving us permission to use them on the site, so please only upload pictures you have permission to share online, and include a photo credit if you didn’t take the photo.
- We run a variety of posts on APW—short and informative, long and meaningful. We do ask you to keep submissions under about 1,500 words though.
- Edit your post, because once you’ve submitted it you won’t get another chance to make changes. That said, remember that we don’t believe in perfection at APW (in weddings or in posts), so just submit the damn thing already! (And don’t worry, three more people will edit it before it’s published!)
- We’d love it if you’d consider submitting a few pictures with your post, though it’s completely not mandatory (except for How-To posts, Wedding Graduate, and obviously Wordless Weddings).
- We can’t run all the posts that are submitted to the site, and that’s in no way a reflection of the quality of the post, or how amazing you are. By submitting to us, we’re making you promise that you won’t feel badly about yourself if we can’t run your post. Done? Done!
- Due to the volume of submissions, and our relatively tiny staff, we can’t respond to every submission (though we very much wish we could). That said, if we’re planning to run the post on the site, we’ll get in touch.
- By submitting a post to the site, you give us permission to edit for tone, length, grammar, and clarity.
- By submitting a post, you’re acknowledging that the post was written by you, and that you are granting us permission to publish it.
