Southern Weddings

Author: Emily

We know some of y’all have been waiting for this announcement, so here it is! One of our favorite things about the warmer months just happens to be the arrival of our summer editorial intern, and we’re excited to meet the next guy or gal to fill this role! This is a fantastic opportunity to get a hands-on experience working in a dynamic, small-office environment. Here is what we’re looking for:

– An undergraduate student who can commit to working approximately 20-25 hours a week in June and July. We would ideally love someone who could start in late May and stay into August, as well, for a total of about 10 weeks.
SOMEONE WHO LOVES WEDDINGS. More than anything else, we want to work with someone who loves weddings and has a KEEN familiarity with weddings, wedding trends, the wedding industry, and the wedding publishing industry. A deep love for the South is important, too!
– A great work ethic is super important to us, as well as someone who loves to learn, can work and problem solve independently, is very responsible, and is a self-starter.
– A firm grasp on grammar. Familiarity with Photoshop, InDesign, and WordPress would be a bonus.

Every Southern Weddings internship is a bit different, but here are some of the things you can expect to experience:
– Sitting in on and contributing to weekly staff meetings and brainstorming sessions
– Learning the basics of working with a WordPress blog and the Adobe Creative Suite
– Writing a post on the blog and/or copy for the magazine
– Researching images and information for features
– Researching, requesting, and tracking products for editorial
– Assisting on site at editorial shoots
– Building portfolios on the SW site
– Assisting with our social media accounts
– Getting a firsthand view of how a bustling magazine, blog, shop, and small business run with a small staff of women

Sound like something you’re interested in? Please fill out this form by Friday, March 27 at 11:59pm. Please let us know in the comments if you have any questions. Please do not email your application to us or email us to confirm receipt. We will be in touch with applicants who we think might be a good fit within two weeks of March 27.

This position is unpaid, but we are happy to work with you to get college credit if that’s something your school offers. We know this will be a great learning opportunity! If chosen for the internship, we will need you to work in person at our Chapel Hill office, but any college student who can get themselves to Chapel Hill for the summer is eligible to apply.

We can’t wait to hear from y’all!!

    I just wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate you opening this to “guys and gals.” It really warms my heart, honestly! So thanks from a girl who very much only wants equality in the world <3

    Hello! Just a quick question — I know that the post clearly states “undergraduate students,” but are are graduate students currently enrolled in writing/journalism programs (that count magazine internships for credit) allowed to apply? Thank you!

    I wish your office was closer to Mobile Alabama. I would love to volunteer my time working with your magazine. Sounds like a great learning opportunity.

    I was wondering if everyone who applied will be hearing back from y’all or just the lucky applicant who gets the internship!

It never fails – one of our most frequently asked questions is, “what should I gift my bridesmaids?” We understand, because with all your gals mean to you, it feels like a lot of pressure to gift them something that’s personal, meaningful, sweet, matches their aesthetic, and that they will keep, use, and/or treasure. And, with the size of bridal parties in the South, it can’t, of course, be too expensive! We’re so happy to introduce you today to The Bride’s Maid Shop, a one-stop shop for beautiful bridesmaid gifts and carefully curated gift packages.

Most of the gifts on The Bride’s Maid Shop are handmade, and all are truly high quality. Many of their items are also designed exclusively for their site, which we love! We also love how they’ve sorted their picks into packages, making it simple for brides to personalize with easy.

Every package includes complimentary gift wrapping and a thank you note card – a huge time saver that makes it easy for you to pen a heartfelt note to each gal before handing her goodies over. Because truly, letting your best ladies know how much they mean to you (in writing!) is one of the best gifts you can give!

Ready to check this “to do” off your list? The lovely ladies at The Bride’s Maids Shop are offering SW readers 15% off their entire order with code SOWED2015!

    I LOVE that robe. I have been searching for that turkish towel material robe FOREVER. I’m so happy I know where to buy one now! I’m not getting married, but I buy a couple for me and my sisters!

    I used The Brides Maids Shop for my bridal party gifts and the girls absolutely LOVED them. It was such a pleasure working with the company and I would absolutely recommend them to any brides out there. Ps- I really love the new monogrammed clutches.

    I love the robe and mini-emergency kit! And the message in a bottle necklace is so unique. I will definitely be using The Bridesmaid Shop for my wedding in August! Can’t wait to browse through all of their fun stuff!

Hello, belles! I’m in New York City today spending a few hours with the Chapel Designers, a group of fabulous florists! Our good friend (and Blue Ribbon Vendor) Holly Chapple asked me to speak about the history of Southern Weddings and how we create our editorials, and I was tickled pink to do so. In honor of spring, we thought it would be fun to share a few gorgeous bouquets by the talented attendees and Holly herself. I hope these pretty blooms help get you ready for warmer temps and gentle breezes (as if we needed any help!)
