Hmm, I can understand your FI’s position, but I don’t agree with him 🙂

I’m not an attention whore at all. Like, it was hard to be the center of attention on our wedding day. BUT, that said, I submitted our wedding to a blog, and it was published, and I was quite proud of it. The blog feature focused a lot on our details, which we both worked really hard on. Plus, we had a unique wedding, and I was happy to show it off 🙂

I’m also the editor of a wedding inspiration blog myself, and I LOVE featuring photographers that aren’t well known, but crazy talented. You could tell your Fiance that you’re doing it to give your photog some much needed newbie exposure to help get her name out. I mean, if it gets picked up by one of the big ones, it could really help her out.

And worst case scenario, it doesn’t get picked up.

Just keep in mind that blogs like exclusive material, so onky submit to one blog at a time 🙂

That’s unfortunate!  I get a lot of my ideas from blogs and looking at other bride’s photos.  I think if you put all that time into making a beautiful wedding for your guests, there’s nothing wrong with showing other people in the same boat looking for inspiration! I guess I can see how some people might see it as attention whoring…but overall I think the intentions are good – you’re proud of your event!  Nothing wrong with that! 

If my pics turn out good enough for a blog, you’d better believe I’d want to submit them!!

I don’t think it’s wrong, but as far as I’m aware, those blogs only take photos from photographers, not brides. Why not put the pictures in the weddingbee gallery? A lot of those get published on the front page!

Have you tried showing your Fiance any wedding blogs where people post their pictures.  Maybe if he sees how accepted it is he will be more apt to let you do it.  If it’s an issue of privacy with him then you may never be able to change his mind.  I would take the angle that many newly engaged women look to blogs to help them with ideas.  I know that my first few months of being engaged were spent gathering information and ideas that I could then incorporate into my wedding vision.  Blogs are a free way to do that without buying a ton of $9.00 wedding magazines.

heck!  I say show ’em off lady!  Okay okay, I suppose you should get your Fiance on board.  hehe.  Is he just shy?  Maybe tell him you want to help your photographer out!
