Wedding Announcement Guidelines from a New York Publicist: The Secrets of Getting Listed.
You don’t have to work at a top NYC PR firm to know how to get into the New York Times.
Today on the Examiner.com homepage, Nadia Digilov posted a great article for hopeful brides-to-be featuring some tips from L.E.R. PR‘s CEO, Jane Lerman on how to get their wedding featured in the New York Times Styles Section of Wedding announcements.
Here are some of our tips:
1) Determine what makes your love story unique: did you defy some kind of odds or overcome adversity? Did you meet in an unusual way? Is the wedding taking place in an unusual ceremony or location? The NY times likes diversity, so don’t be afraid to show off your heritage!
2) Establish why you deserve to be featured in the Styles section as an individual? What are your careers and hobbies? What universities did the both of you attend? Who are your parents? The Styles section likes to showcase couples that are “model citizens,” so emphasize your successes and accomplishments.
3) Choose a great photo that shows how happy you are together. The point of this section is to show off happy couples moving to the next chapter of their lives, so choose a photo that exemplifies a calm love in a natural setting- nothing forced! Only head shots of the two of you are necessary, so don’t worry about choosing a fancy outfit or backdrop- just nice smiles. If you want to go for a classic look, you can’t go wrong with black and white!
