Polka Dot Groom is about the groom by the groom. More and more, we’re looking for grooms like you to share your stories and your weddings!
What does this mean?
We’re looking for real grooms, groomsmen or fathers of the bride/groom to write about their experiences on the blog. This is a space for you to share your finds, triumphs, stories, engagements and weddings with us!
What will be required of me?
Once you have filled out the application form, Ms Gingham will send you an email telling you that you are now a contributor (writer) to Polka Dot Groom. She will also send you information regarding the technical side of using the Polka Dot Bride contributor intranet in which you will be required to write and submit your posts for review.
Important: Please ask your photographer to provide you with web ready images that are a maximum of 850 pixels at the widest side. Our system cannot accept files over 1MB.
I’m not the best at writing. Will someone check my post before it is published?
Yes! Once you have written your post and submitted it for review, it goes to Ms Gingham who will edit it, correct any spelling mistakes and help with the formatting of all the images.
What can I write about?
Anything that is wedding related from finding the perfect tailor, communicating with the bridal party to challenges in planning your wedding.
Can I write more than one post?
Of course! We love to follow our groom’s journeys with a series of posts!!
I’m already married so can I just share my wedding day?
Definitely. When writing about your wedding day, try to think about the day from your perspective and communicating that in your post. Remember, it’s mostly other grooms who will be reading so write as if you’re talking to your mates!
