I am a vendor and am interested in being a part of the Simply Blue vendor guide. What do I do?
Hello and welcome! Start by filling out an application here. Celia, our editorial director, will be in touch with you shortly with further information.
Please note that Simply Blue is an exclusively Northern Michigan vendor guide. We define this as anything north of US 10 (including the UP). We do require that you have a northern Michigan residence where you live at least 6 months out of the year.
If you're from mid/southern Michigan or another state but do weddings in Northern Michigan, there still a couple of ways you can get involved in Simply Blue - either through a real wedding submission or a guest blogger contribution. See below for more details on these.
Are you accepting wedding submissions?
Yes! We are always accepting real wedding. If you have a wedding you'd like to submit for publication, please follow these guidelines and send all required materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you accept contributions to the blog that aren't weddings?
Absolutely. If you have an piece, article, story, or list related to Northern Michigan, weddings, or events, send it along to email@example.com. Please keep your post between 300-1,000 words and include a short, 2-3 line bio. If you have professional quality photos you'd like to include in the post, please send 3-4. If you don't, don't worry, we can add photos from our collection.
If you are interested in being a monthly or bi-monthly guest blogger, please include 2-3 pieces, links to your website and/or social media accounts, and a paragraph on why you'd like to write for Simply Blue.
Do you provide wedding planning services?
Simply Blue does not offer wedding planning. It is a local resource that provides recommendations of amazing area vendors. If you are looking for an event coordinator, visit our vendor guide here. If you are interesting in Rachel's event planning business, Sincerely, Ginger, contact her here.
