Blogging is so important for wedding professionals, like planners, photographers, florists, and venue owners. In fact, I have written countless posts about this topic! From how to get your blog started, to how to outsource your blogging. Blogging is one of the biggest services we offer at Ava And The Bee. And is an essential part of running a wedding business! Not only does it help with your SEO and web presence, but it also allows potential brides to see your work, as a whole. It allows you to showcase your style, and how you shoot (or plan!) weddings and events.
It is also an important part of the client experience. Clients love to see their weddings on your website, and social media! Even if that wedding isn’t your “ideal client”, it is important to share some images from their day. This will let them share it on their own social media and Facebook, and in return, give you free advertising! And why wouldn’t you want free advertising?
But a lot of wedding professionals are unsure of what blog topics to even write about! So today is all about the top blog topic buckets you should write about on your blog. I’ll tell you what to include in each post, and why they are so important!
Topic One and Two go hand in hand: styled shoots and real weddings. These are also the easiest to write (especially if you have a client questionnaire you give out before every wedding!) You can either refer to the guidelines for the styled shoot or write directly from the questionnaire.
One paragraph will be all about the couple. Talk about how they met, how he (or she!) proposed, where their first date was, and any fun facts about the two of them.
The second paragraph will be about the shoot or wedding. Make sure to include the venue, the theme, the color palette, trends, personal touches, and all the vendors involved.
Another great option is to pull a quote from a vendor at the styled shoot or from the couple! This can be about the wedding day, the vision, or anything special they remember.

Why it matters
One of my favorite blog posts to write for clients? Vendor posts! These are a great way not just to showcase local vendors, but also build vendor relationships. I recommend starting with your favorite vendors in your area – who do you love to work with most? You can either have the post be an interview with them or have it more as a “guest post” where they can share a topic they are a pro in.
For example: A florist could write about the best flowers for every season. A wedding stationery artist could showcase their custom hand-drawn wedding maps and why local area brides love them. A wedding planner could write about how to create the perfect timeline. Or you can showcase your favorite wedding venues, complete with images from weddings you have shot there. These posts are all about getting some great backlinks, showcasing each others work, and building your SEO!
