Remember wayyyy back when we first issued a call for all Southern bride bloggers? Oh yes, here :) Well, we finally got our rears in gear and set up the page, which you can find here!

I know we have tons of new readers since we first posted about this, so if you’d like to be listed, just leave a comment below with your blog address! Make sure you include a valid email in your comment so we can send over your badge. We only ask that you are a bride currently planning a wedding in the Southeastern United States, and that you blog at least once a week! We’re also open to hearing from Southern gals planning weddings outside the South.

P.S. Love this sort of stuff? Then we think you’ll love these links:

    I would love a button! I’m planning our June wedding and have just recently began posting about some of the stuff I don’t care that other people know, it’s so much fun to hear from other brides who are going through the same process!

    So fun! I started blogging before I got engaged and once I got engaged I started doing “Wedding Wednesday’s!” Would love to put your button on my blog, Fried Green Pickles! :) We’re from and getting married in Charleston, SC on March 30, 2013.

    I would love a button for my blog, Southern in Love! I’ve been blogging since we got engaged in November of 2010 and can’t believe the wedding is getting so close! June 30th will be here before I know it! I love to discuss our wedding and how it’s progressing as well as other fun (and Southern) things.

    Just missed it as I’m now a Southern Newlywed! I was recently married in the South and blogged throughout my entire planning process on Southern Weddings was a huge influence and great inspiration. Thanks SW!

    I would love a button for my blog, argyle & paisley! I have been blogging since before my fiance (Jamison) proposed in October 2011, but since then I have almost only blogged about wedding things. Jamison and I are both from Charlotte, NC and that is where we are getting married on September 29, 2012. I have been looking at Southern Weddings blog since before we got engaged as well, and have every issue of the magazine!

    We are having a garden wedding this September in Virginia. I took most of my inspiration from the blog and magazine. Love you guys!

    Hi! I love SW!! I started The Sweet Iced Tea Soiree blog when I first started planning my wedding, I’ve realized how much I love it, and I’m currently in the middle of event and wedding planning school now!! I must say, most of my inspiration for my October 6th 2012 wedding at The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, has come from Southern Weddings magazine!

    I actually started my blog to document my crafting projects as I started learning to quilt last August and began making quilts for friends. After I got engaged in February I decided that planning my wedding would be the new focus of the project blog for a while, so I’m keeping family and friends who are out-of-town updated with the details through the blog. My fiance and I are getting married on October 27 in charming downtown Ocean Springs, Mississippi! I would love to add your button and hopefully bring more Mississippi brides your way. :)

    I’m originally from New York, but I came to Virginia for middle school – just in time to fall in love with this gorgeous commonwealth AND meet my Georgia-born love! Fast forward through our friendship in high school, losing touch in college, and moving back to Virginia at the same time, and now we’re engaged! We’re getting married on June 1, 2013, in Virginia and I couldn’t be happier! My blog is at and I’d love to be listed as a Southern bride blogger :)

    I’m a southern girl living in cold & snowy Maine!
    My fiance (a true Mainer and lobsterfisherman) are getting married on September 1st, 2012 in an old barn in Buxton, Maine.
    I started a blog to share my journey to ‘I DO!’ I love DIY projects and LOVE every aspect about planning my wedding! I am Southern Wedding OBSESSED! You gals are amazing!

    I launched my blog as a bride-to-be and this SBB program was discontinued during that time. As a newlywed, I have become a bridal blogger. I dearly want to be a part of this program.

      Hi Angela! So sorry to disappoint you, but we don’t have any plans to list regular wedding blogs (i.e. not brides currently planning) at this time! If we do that in the future, we’d love to have you! :)

    Hi ladies! I think I’ve emailed you all — we’re happy to have you! :)

    I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to be featured in your Southern Brides Bloggers :) I live in KY and am having a Southern Charm filled wedding on June 2nd of this year! I’ve been blogging each week since my engagement in my “Wedding Wednesday” section! I’m having a HUGE wedding, but doing it on a budget! The whole premise of my blog in the first place was ways to live a champagne lifestyle when you’re a poor teacher! Thanks for providing this so we can connect with other brides!!

    I was so excited to hear about this opportunity since I have been reading your blog for years, even though I just got engaged last month. I write the lifestyle blog, Simply Sarah Style, highlighting fashion, decor, party planning and recipes. I would love to display your Southern Weddings bride button!

    My fiance, Ben, and I are planning a wedding for spring of 2013, hopefully April.
