Southern Weddings

Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s time for everything new and sparkling! In that spirit, we’re excited to announce two new features for the SW blog.

The first is less of a new feature and more of a formalizing of something we’ve already been doing. Remember that cowboy boot post, and that navy bridesmaid dress post? Well, under the new system, both would be folded under a single column: Ask the Experts! We, the SW gals, will be your experts, and you, our readers, will do the asking! Got a question about your wedding or anything related to it? We probably have the answer. Y’all already know us pretty well, but we thought we’d do a little rundown of our respective areas of expertise just as a reminder:

Got a question? You can either send it to any one of us, or send a question to howdy at iloveswmag dot com and we’ll forward it on to the right answer-er. We eagerly await your questions! This type of post has been super fun and chatty in the past, so we’re looking forward to kicking this column off with a bang!

The next new feature? Well, it’s not entirely new, either. Some of you reallllly longtime readers might remember the Southern Bride Bloggers: engaged ladies who committed to posting about their weddings and wedding planning for a few months on the SW site. Ultimately, that structure didn’t work so well for us, but we ARE still interested in celebrating real ladies getting married in the South. So, like our friend Katie at Marriage Confessions, we’re going to start having a “Southern Bride of the Month.” You don’t have to be a blogger, you just have to be willing to answer our nosy questions about your wedding and wedding planning process — what you love best, what’s been the worst, what you’re looking forward to the most, what dress you’ve chosen to wear, what you wish you had known when you started, etc. You should also be engaged, and planning a wedding in the South.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, shoot an email to Emily (emily at iloveswmag dot com) with the following information:

Couples’ names
Wedding date
Wedding location
Blog and/or Twitter addresses, if applicable
Any vendors you’ve booked
Brief description of why we should consider you for our Southern Bride of the Month

Please also attach a photo of you and your honey so we can see your smiling faces! (Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be pro quality!)

We can’t wait to get these two new features off the ground, so start sending those emails!

    Great ideas, you should consider doing a column by a wedding photographer to get the photographers perspective on the day. It would be great for brides to hear how to get the best photos, or have different photographers guest blog.
