5 Tips To Improve Your Chances of Getting Featured on WeddingSutra
WeddingSutra – the most popular resource on Wedding Planning for Indians around the world – is all about you!
From your engagement and wedding memories, love stories and memorable honeymoons, we love hearing from couples who want to be featured on our website, and pick stories we receive after a careful selection process. We believe that every couple’s story that we publish on WeddingSutra has the power to inspire another couple starting out on the same journey – and that’s what motivates us to get better every year.
However, we do not publish every story or all photos that we receive. After a careful assessment, our editorial panel chooses few stories that make it to the website and select photos which make it to our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook).
We get lots of email queries and submissions from couples about their beautiful experiences daily via email. For example, one reader wrote to us, asking “My fiance wants our wedding to be featured on WeddingSutra, and I know you must be deluged with submissions. Is there a possibility of our nuptials getting featured?”
This email reflects what a lot of couples want to know – what should they do to get featured on WeddingSutra? The good news? It’s a very simple process, and if you follow the five important tips below, you improve your chances of getting picked to be featured – which trust us, is a lot of fun! These tips have been compiled by our social media and editorial teams, so take note below:
