This Is How (and When) To Submit Weddings to The Knot Magazine in 2018

Big news, you guys! Our Real Weddings team just released their 2018 Fall / Winter magazine submission deadline calendar. That’s the schedule of cutoffs for submissions to all 16 of our local magazines. We wanted to make sure you got the details because some of the deadlines are right around the corner.


Getting featured in The Knot Magazine is a really big deal. Like, really really big.  Take our our report on The Knot Readership Study, which had some pretty interesting findings. Get this: 8 out of 10 couples are more interested in hiring a wedding pro found in one of The Knot regional magazines. So getting featured in our regional magazines means you not only get to see your work in print, but also spark interest in 80% of couples reading the magazine. That’s a total marketing strategy win.

Submitting is easy. We use a platform called Two Bright Lights to take in all of our submissions. Two Bright Lights works with over 400 publications to help photographers, planners, venues and other creatives to get featured. It’s totally free to submit to The Knot. Just go to

Photographers are often the ones to submit but anyone else (planners, venues, florists) can use Two Bright Lights to submit photos. Just be sure to get the photographer’s approval before submitting his/her work.

Here are the deadlines to submit to The Knot Magazines for 2018…
