Submit A Guest Post
If you want to submit a Wedding Graduate Posts or Vintage Wedding Post, please go over here. If you’d like to submit a Wordless Wedding, this is what you’re looking for. For everything else, keep reading.
Here is a quick description of the different kinds of posts that you can submit to APW.
If you’re planning your wedding, we would love it if you’d share your story and perspective. Past posts include That Time I Bought A Wedding Dress And Learned To Love Myself, Maybe, The Space Between Single And Married, An Introvert’s Guide to Surviving the Week Before the Wedding, and Prenups Are So Misunderstood, Not Even Attorneys Want Them. You can read them all here. When you submit a post, we’d love it if you also send in a picture that you’d be ok with us using. Note: We ask you to keep it constructive, because the internet has a way of snowballing on itself. We try not to publish posts that are just rants (even though we all need a good wedding planning rant now and then) because 100 comments of angry isn’t fun for anyone.
APW is about weddings, but it’s about marriages, too. When Meg got married, she started a section of the site called Reclaiming Wife to talk about working to create marriages that reflect the lives we want to live. We’ve tackled everything from career choices and how they impact our marriages, to money, to sex, to the way lesbian partnerships can provide a model for the rest of us, to being married to an addict in recovery. And heck yeah, we’ve talked about divorce. So if you’ve learned something about marriage, or have a story you’d like to tell, we’d be delighted if you submitted a post (And yes, we can run it anonymously!). Please consider sending some pictures of you two, as well, though it is not at all mandatory.
I Have A Question, And I Need Some Help, Pretty Please:
On Fridays, the ever-brave Liz offers her best stab at answering all your advice questions in Ask Team Practical, and then throwing it to the readers for their suggestions. Married, engaged, or neither, you can submit your questions, and we’ll do our best to answer them. If you want to be anonymous try giving us a kicky sign-off name, like Very Emotional Xcept Everyone Dismisses (VEXED). We’ll do our best to answer your questions, tackle your troubles or just go, “Lady, that sucks.” Aren’t you lucky?
If you’ve successfully executed one of our How To tutorials, we’d love pictures and a story. Plus, if you want to write an instructional post, like How To Bake A Wedding Cake, How To Write A Wedding Ceremony, How To Write Wedding Vows, or How To Homebrew Wedding Beer, well, the internet thanks you in advance. We’re also big fans of tutorials on how to throw laid back weddings, like, How To Plan A Beach Wedding, and How To Plan An At Home Wedding. You can see them all here. If share a How-To post with us, and please remember to include pictures!
Giving Away Your Wedding Dress:
We’re not currently taking submissions for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Dress. If you’re looking to pass on your dress, we’d suggest you consider Brides Against Breast Cancer. And virtual cheers to you!
But wait! Before you submit a post, please make sure you’ve read our disclaimer! Thanks.
We recommend that you write your answers in a document, and copy paste them into the form. That way if invisible web monkeys decide to eat them, you won’t cry. You’re welcome. (Stupid web monkeys.) – APW Team
