Picture your wedding announcement and engagement story in Northeast Florida’s most-read magazine. At Jacksonville Magazine, we receive numerous wedding photos and stories from happy brides and grooms every month. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to include all of them within our pages. However, we do offer newlyweds the opportunity to guarantee an appearance in our magazines. Guidelines are posted below, so please follow the instructions as directed.
What You’ll Need
- Photos. E-mailing photos or sharing a folder of them via DropBox or a similar sharing site is recommended. Photos must be high-resolution, digital images (300 dpi at 5×7). Share these specifications with your photographer. You may send a CD, however, it will not be returned. Do not send more than 2 photos, 1 if securing a 1/4-page profile. Do not send photo collages. Please send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Your wedding story. Please title the document (see form below) with the bride’s maiden name and groom’s last name. Word count limit ranges from 75 to 175 words, depending on profile size. Write-ups that are too long will be edited. And don’t expect your story to appear exactly as written. Our editors will make it even better!
- Your payment. A half-page (175 words & 2 photos) is $295. A one-quarter-page (75 words & 1 photo) is $150. You may pay by check or via credit card. Send materials and payment to Jacksonville Magazine, 1261 King St., Jacksonville, FL 32204 or call Courtnee James at 904-389-3622 to complete your transaction over the phone.
(Note: Payment is not required to submit your story or photos. Paid submissions are guaranteed publication but many other couples appear for free depending on the volume of submissions. Depending on availability, we may contact you to send more photos and wedding details for use as a “Real Weddings” story. There is no charge to be featured as a “Real Wedding.”)
Each couple will receive a one-year subscription to Jacksonville Magazine, and we will alert you as to which edition of Jacksonville Magazine your story will appear. Bonus: all purchased announcements will appear in the next available edition of Bride.
Complete the form. Once we receive your information, someone from Jacksonville Magazine will contact you. It’s as easy as that.
