Calling all Brides and Grooms to Be!

Following the success and popularity of our Bride to Be Diaries which have featured myself, Cath and our anonymous Empowered Bride, and the popularity of our wonderful Groom to Be, Alistair, we have decided to begin a search for our next Bride or Groom to Be contributor!


What will she/he do?

Our next Bride or Groom to Be will feature on the blog monthly. You won’t need to give away any big-day secrets, but we would love you to share aspects of your planning with us such as booking your venue, choosing your bridal party, DIY elements, planning your honeymoon and choosing your suppliers for example. You will submit a post each month and be willing to share your Real Wedding after the big event.

How do I apply?

Write an introduction post telling us a little bit about yourself and your intended, where you live, how you met, the date (and venue if you have chosen) of your big day and the details of your proposal. Send it in to along with up to 10 images to accompany your story. As our blog is very visual please tell us who you have booked/plan to book as your wedding photographer (if you don’t know who yet that’s ok, we can always help you!). Please enter by the 30th of September, our shortlisted brides and grooms to be will then be published on Cwtch the Bride. The successful bride or groom will be the one(s) who engage the most with our readers.We will not only look at viewing figures and shares, but we will actively encourage commenting on the blog posts to see who our readers relate to the most.
