To continue our support of brides, their families, and the bridal service industry and to ensure our lasting presence as a print publication in the wedding industry, as of February 1, 2021, we will be implementing a new pricing and selection process for print and online Real Wedding and Just Married features.
Southern Bride will continue to strive to be your expert source of celebration and inspiration. We hope that by sharing beautiful weddings, we can honor the love displayed on each big day, inspire couples who are beginning to plan their own, and showcase professionals who grace the wedding industry with their creativity and innovation. And, it brings us great pleasure to provide a tangible resource for brides to have in their own hands, from engagement through planning their big day and beyond.
Allow us to join the ranks of these talented individuals and to do what we do best: painting a picture of your wedding experience that’s as vivid as your wedding and the photos you submit, curating a lasting memory and keepsake you will cherish and share forever.
Please note, from the hundreds of submissions we receive – we will select approximately 25-30 weddings for any summer/fall or winter/spring issue.
