Affiliate Program Policies and Disclosures

Dress for the Wedding is a personal blog, edited by me, with all content and visuals created by me. Unless a post is marked as sponsored, I have not received or requested direct paid sponsorship from the brands and products I feature in blog posts, (i.e., features of bridal brands or independent designers are not sponsored posts unless otherwise marked)  however, I do use affiliate programs as outlined below to help monetize the site and as an performance-based form of sponsorship in many posts. An affiliate link indicates that I may receive a small percentage or commission if an item I feature as a part of a post results in a qualified lead or sale to the retailer.  I choose the items I will feature based on receiving image permissions, as well as my own my aesthetic preferences as well as their use to my readers for the purposes of finding wedding attire. When I participate on Pinterest, Facebook, or Twitter, I may pin or post images which may occasionally have affiliate links associated with them.  There is a disclosure statement for these programs on the sidebar of this site. In addition, most links are identifiable by a URL which contains rstyle, or shopstyle as an affiliate link, may not otherwise marked in posts before 2014- 2015. Subsequent posts usually carry an additional disclosure at the start of the post and close to the affiliate links, and as of 2017 carry an image in the post. If you have any questions about the nature of any link, please contact me at info (at) dressforthewedding.com.

In the case of most blog posts that feature brands, I have contacted representatives of the brands or products I feature, simply to obtain permission to use their images in royalty-free manner, and to understand more about the product, but direct compensation of any kind has not been requested unless noted.

All of the products we recommend are handpicked by me and featured solely because I genuinely enjoy or appreciate the aesthetic or brand and the item(s). Featured products are selected because they fit the recommendations and style of  the Dress for the Wedding editorial content and the product would be of use and of interest to our readership. The integrity of this blog is very important; therefore I only recommend items that I feel correctly reflect the Dress for the Wedding  style.

Please read more details and the most current version of Affiliate Policies here.
