Have you ever flipped through Martha Stewart Weddings or Vogue and seen an absolutely breathtaking wedding? Major wedding magazines feature only the best weddings. Full of stunning elements, they’re enough to have anyone dreaming of a day just like it.

But, planning a wedding that’s ready to grace the pages of your favorite magazine or blog isn’t easy. Today, I’m sharing four ways to create a publication worthy wedding that will have all the editors drooling.

It’s all in the details - It’s no secret that a publication worthy wedding is all in the details. Executing a vision that’s ready to grace the pages of your favorite wedding magazine or blog means considering even the smallest details from the stamps on your invitations to the salt and pepper shakers on the tables to the trays your hors d’oeuvres are passed on.

Be unique and stay true to who you are - The biggest publications see thousands of submissions a day. The key to making your wedding stand out is being unique. This doesn’t mean selecting elements of your wedding just because they’re different. Choose details with meaning like we talked about in this blog post and stay true to who you are for a day that’s not only special but ready for the spotlight.

Create an experience for your guests - A publication worthy wedding is about more than the centerpieces and decor. It’s also about creating and capturing an experience for your guests. A good wedding planner can help you develop a theme and create an experience for your guests from start to finish.

Hire a good photographer - You could spend your entire budget on details that are unique to you and create an experience for your guests. But, they mean nothing if you don’t have high quality images to show for it. Review your photographer’s portfolio and make sure they know you want shots of every detail.
