Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is Kansas Weddings Magazine published? The Kansas Weddings Magazine is published in December. It is mailed to registrants as soon as we receive advance copies in our home office. It will also be shipped to vendors, newsstands and various wedding outlets across Kansas for release early in the calendar year.
  • Can anyone be in Kansas Weddings Magazine? In the Register, yes. Anyone who purchases a page and submits the required materials by the final deadline, October 1 will be included in the Wedding Announcement Register section of the 2019 edition of Kansas Weddings Magazine.
  • What materials do I need to submit? A list of required materials and the Announcement Submission Form can be found here. We are accepting one-page or two-page announcements that include at least three images (vertical and horizontal are considered). The announcement write-up must be between 400-500 words.
  • What does the Announcement cost? The one-page announcement is $395. The two-page announcement is $595. Final deadline is October 1, 2018.
  • Can I send in my payment first and materials later? Sorry, but no. All materials MUST be sent in together. This is to avoid the confusion that would occur if the hundreds of CDs and DVDs we receive came in separately from their registration forms.
  • How do I figure the word-count of my write-up, and what happens if it’s too long? Word-processing programs have a word count tool, which should be used to determine word count. Write ups that are too long to fit into the format will be cut at our discretion, so try to stay within the range, 400-500 for a one-page announcement.
  • What constitutes a “high-resolution” digital photo? Rest assured, your photographer will know what type of files to give you. But in a nutshell, the photos need to be at least 300 dpi (dots per inch) at about 5” x 7.” Do not send low-resolution digital previews, and do not send prints or scans of prints. It is worth the effort to get digital photos from your photographer. You will be much happier with the print quality.
  • The final deadline is October 1, but my wedding is after that. Will I have to wait until the following year to submit my wedding? Yes. But don’t worry, you won’t be the only one. Most wedding photographers need time to turn around the photographs.
  • Will my materials be used in any other publications? No. You and your photographer are granting information to Sunflower Publishing to include your submitted material in the Kansas Weddings Magazine. The material will appear in the print and online edition, and possibly for promotional use of the magazine.
  • Will I get a proof of my page before it prints? Unfortunately, the large number of pages we have to produce prohibits us from providing a proof before the issue goes to press. If we see a need to fact check, we will contact you directly.
  • Will I get a copy of Kansas Weddings MagazineYes, each registry will receive 2 complimentary copies. Additional copies may be purchased on the newsstand.
  • What about the cover? Can I submit photos for that as well? Since the magazine includes editorial content, we are leaving the decision for a cover up to our art director. However, we will consider all images for the cover, including those submitted.
  • Does my wedding have to have taken place in Kansas to be chosen for a feature? No. We assume that all of our couples have some sort of connection to Kansas. Anyone who submits will be considered on the merits of their photos and not excluded because of their hometown or the location of their wedding.
