SUBMISSION FAQ’S

We only accept submissions that come to us via our online form. We don’t accept submissions via Instagram or Facebook messages. When you’re filling out our submission form, please leave us with as much information as possible.

Absolutely not!

We share weddings from around the globe; from Hong Kong to The Philippines, Europe to India. Sharing weddings and love stories from all corners of the globe, from people who have diverse religious backgrounds, cultures, and traditions, is very important to us.

No. Dancing With Her is a curated feed of stories that have appeared in our blog or magazine and features of wedding vendors that we work with. Although community building is at the core of what we do, we are not a ‘shoutout’ account.

We will always tag your photographer. If you would specifically like us to tag our Instagram account, let us know, but know that it isn’t always possible.

We endeavor to get back to everyone, but with the number of emails we get, sometimes it can take time to get back to you – sometimes up to three weeks. If you haven’t heard from us after three weeks, please follow up via email.

Yep, in fact, if it doesn’t, we’ll decline the submission.

Sharing authentic representation of diverse communities is really important to us, and to our community. So, we won’t accept submissions that include models posing as a couple. If you need help sourcing an LGBTQ+ couple for your styled shoot, let us know in advance and we will do what we can to help you.

We wish we could publish every single story that lands in our inbox. Unfortunately, we are a tiny team of two humans – it’s physically impossible for us to put together a feature for everyone!

There are lots of reasons why we accept some submissions and not others. Sometimes it is because we already have something similar in the publishing queue, other times it is because we have had too many weddings from your area or because the style doesn’t quite fit into our publication.

If we decline your submission know it’s not because we didn’t love it – as we said, every story deserves the opportunity to inspire others.

We only publish around 40 weddings in our print magazines each year, and each magazine is curated to include diversity in sexuality, culture, religion, colors, style, budget, locations, …the list goes on!

We will ask you if you would like your submission to be considered for print, digital, or both, and we will take that into consideration. However, we will make the final decision.

It depends.

It will take us some time to gather all the information that we need and get permissions that we need to publish. From there it’ll go into the publishing queue and it could be anywhere between 2 weeks and 3+ months before it is featured.

It depends on what else is going on for us, and what other stories are in the queue before yours. Remember, there are only two humans behind everything you see. Things can take a little time!

Maybe, but maybe not too.

We publish, on average, two posts to Instagram & Facebook a day, which makes it impossible to post every single story into the feed.
