Calling All You Pretty NY Brides-to-be!

Brides Local Magazines is looking for an engaged couple in the New York City/New Jersey area to appear in the Spring/Summer issue's "Find Our Wedding Style" story. You can check out an example of the feature on their Facebook page and in the current issue on stands now, but in a nutshell here's how it works:

They photograph an engaged couple's apartment and basedon elements from their home (pictures, furniture, knick-knacks, etc.), they create ideas for their wedding. Note: the couple is not required to use any of their ideas, and it's okay if they already have elements of their wedding in place. The purpose of the story is to show readers how items from their day to day life can inspire great ideas, and how their interior design aesthetic can be translated into wedding details. (all those trips to Anthropologie were not a waste!).

Fancy or large home not required
(thank you for considering us 400 sq feeters!). They are looking for a style they will have fun working with. All that's required from the couple is an afternoon for our team to come over and take photos. (very Sex and the City!)

This story will run in all 16 of the markets including Brides New York and Brides New Jersey.
If you're interested, please email The following should be included in the email:

wedding date
wedding location
any thoughts you already have about your wedding
a brief description about what you feel your style is
five to seven photos of your home (a few wide shots and close ups of any details they feel are particularly "them")
and one picture of you so we can get a sense of who you are and what your living space is like.
(try to look your prettiest)

To be considered, submissions must arrive by Monday, August 17th.
