Southern Weddings

Our small but mighty team is growing, friends! One of our favorite things that we all have our hands in is relationship building and delighting our readers and customers with great service.

The more we grow and our mission spreads, the more we have need of a person who could be fully dedicated to this part of our company.

    I wouldn’t be qualified for this position, but I’m always keeping my eye out for when you want to hire an in-house baker/crafter/office manager :) Can’t wait to see who you add to the team!

    Oh how I wish I was close to you! Your brand, passion, hearts are all wonderful and whoever gets to join this team is a lucky lady!

    Crying that I live across the country! I LOVE you ladies at Southern Weddings and wish so badly that I could join you! Good luck!

    I am trying to apply for the position and in the “Education & Achievements” section, after I select the year of graduation, the “next” button disappears. What is the best way to get around this?

    • avatar Emily reply

      Hi Stephanie! I’m guessing you graduated in 2014 or 2015. For this position, we are looking for someone who has two years of work experience, so that is why the application won’t move forward!

  5. avatar Rachel Nordgren reply

    This is so exciting! Out of curiosity, does “Southern voice” have to mean “Southern accent”?

  6. avatar Kirsti reply

    I have always prayed that I would have an opportunity to work with SW, however I wouldn’t be able to move to NC right now. I hope you all are blessed with amazing applicants that will be great new team members!

  7. avatar Hilari reply

    Oh how exciting!! Fabulous news on a Monday after my own wedding weekend :)

  8. avatar Autumn reply

    I feel that my years spent in the bridal industry, as well as my career in communications, has all led up to this moment. Not to mention that my husband and I are moving to Durham/Chapel Hill later this summer. I am so excited to apply.

    I am so excited for this opportunity to apply! Southern Weddings is an extension of my passions in life and I am honored to be part of the application process. Good luck to your team and everyone else who is applying!

    On the application is states “where did you get your BA?” Are you guys only looking for individuals with a BA, or do other degress work?

  11. avatar Brittney Scurry reply

    Should recent grads not apply for this position?
    When I went through the application and put my graduation year I was unable to continue.

    • avatar Lisa reply

      Hi Brittney! For this position, we are looking for someone who has at least two years of post-grad work experience. Thanks so much for your interest! :)

  12. avatar Stacey Greene reply

    Question: Will all candidates be contacted?
    Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity!

    Hi there!
