Hello Coordinated Brides!

Can you believe that we are already prepping for 2018?  Yikes!! Where did the time go?  As the sun begins to set just a little earlier and as you second guess your decision to leave the scarf home, it is time to apply to be a 2018 Certified Coordinated Bride aka Guest Bride Blogger.

We had over 70 applicants in 2017 and 20 Guest Bride Bloggers were selected.  We are only accepting a maximum of 10 2018 brides and one of those positions is already filled with a 2017 #TCBBlogger who changed her wedding date.  The selection process will be in-depth and very detailed!

Applications are now being accepted from Coordinated Brides getting married between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018 – only.  This is an amazing opportunity to journal your wedding planning process and share your journey with thousands of brides from around the world while giving your photographers and planners some well deserved kudos!

Want some tips to help get selected as one of the chosen few??

Be Confident || Be Convincing || Be Unique || Be Interesting || Be Honest

Besides the above we ask for a few little things like knowing the difference between your, you’re, there, their and they’re.  Good grammar is key!

Perks! Perks! Perks!  Did I mention that there are perks?!!

  • All accepted Guest Bride Bloggers are featured on The Coordinated Bride Wedding Blog, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook social media pages
  • All accepted Guest Bride Bloggers receive first preference on Reposts via our Instagram account
  • All Guest Bride Bloggers will have the professional images from their bridal shower and wedding posted on the blog and streamed on all of our social media accounts

Since our selection process for 2018 is very strict, we are conducting the 2018 GBB Open Call for 3 weeks. The deadline to apply is Friday, September 29th and we will begin notifying the selected Guest Bride Bloggers the first week of November.  Yes, we are taking an entire month to review all applicants.
