This Is How (and When) To Submit Weddings to The Knot Magazine in 2019

The editorial team is gearing up to pick Real Wedding stories for the magazines hitting shelves in the spring and summer of 2020 (so that will be the 2020 Spring/Summer regional issues). This is your call to mark your calendars and prep your submissions!

Getting featured in The Knot Magazine is a really big deal. Like, really really big.  Take our report on The Knot Readership Study, which had some pretty interesting findings. Get this: 8 out of 10 couples say they are more interested in hiring a wedding pro found in one of The Knot regional magazines. So getting featured in our regional magazines means you not only get to see your work in print, but also spark interest in 80% of couples reading the magazine. That's a total marketing strategy win.

Submitting is easy. We use a platform called Two Bright Lights to take in all of our submissions. Two Bright Lights works with hundreds of publications to help photographers, planners, venues and other creatives to get featured. It's totally free to submit to The Knot. Just go to

Photographers are often the ones to submit but any other vendors (planners, venues, florists) can use Two Bright Lights (there's a step built into "TBL" to input the couples' names and tag the photographer for image permission if the submitter is not the photographer). Once the photographer approves, you may upload up to 100 photos, tag the vendors, and give a brief explanation about the couple and wedding. Please note, the editorial team is specifically seeking Real Weddings, so we encourage you to send your engagement and styled shoots to other publishers within Two Bright Lights.

As for final decisions, you're welcome to submit at any point in time, but all weddings will be receive final feedback within two months of the print deadline. While this seems a long period to await feedback, unfortunately it takes that long to vet, review, pick, and confirm all the couples! If you'd like quicker feedback, consider to submit to within Two Bright Lights where you'll receive feedback within 30 days. 

Finally, the team is seeking weddings from the fall of 2018 - present.

And now for the deadlines!
