Submit A Wedding
As a new blogsite, we need many inspiring weddings, engagement shoots, celebrations and images to get the ball rolling. Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Weddings, Engagement Shoots, Celebrations (1st birthday’s 40th birthday’s, etc.) and just one single gorgeous images for our (“Just Because…” every Friday). We are looking for images that are gorgeous, glamorous and downright breathtaking.
- Events which embody the simple elegance of New England–from mansions and sailboats to navy blue and white accents–these are just some of the elements which symbolize Newport & New England charm.
- Details, Details, Details! We love to showcase those fine touches that brides can incorporate into their own weddings.
- Stunning photos. Our philosophy: let the photos do most of the talking.
- Unique designs. While we value simple elegance, we are always interested in designs which will inspire our readers to take their weddings to the next level.
- Events that take place in Newport, but also all around Rhode Island and New England. We have a focus on Newport, but welcome New England shoots as well.

- Images MUST be 800 pixels wide for both vertical and horizontal images. (NO larger than 800pixels wide & NO Smaller than 600pixels wide).
- We prefer to have fresh content that has not been seen anywhere else, but we understand if it has been on your blog. Let us know where it has been seen, if you have submitted to another blog or magazine and we will then determine if it is a good fit. Please still submit!
- Please try and wait to feature images before you posting the wedding on your own blog or Facebook. This way you can link back to NWGlam feature on your own blog! Again, we will still consider the submission if it has posted to your site.
- Be sure to credit each and every vendor. Ask the bride or planner for a complete list that includes website urls before submitting as we want to be sure to credit everyone! (once submitted can not be edited).
- Photographers be sure the couples have approved the use of the images on NWGlam & couples be sure your photographer and all vendors have approved usage on NWGlam as well!
- A personal story of the wedding is always nice. Ask the bride to write up her memories of the wedding, or vendors can write the story or information as well.
