Bridal Musings features a wide range of inspiring and helpful wedding related content.
In addition to our regular content, such as real weddings, styled shoots and advice posts, we also feature sponsored content and affiliate links on Bridal Musings. This is how we are able to pay the BM team for their talent, hard work and time, and how we cover business costs such as website and image hosting, professional storage solutions, photo editing software, social media scheduling tools etc.
We always write from the heart and only ever promote brands, products and services that we genuinely love and think our readers will love and/or appreciate too.
In the interests of full transparency, sponsored posts will always be clearly disclosed with the words ‘Sponsored By…', ‘Sponsored Post', ‘Partnered Post' or ‘written in partnership with…' in the post title or at the top of the post and sponsored social shares will be marked with #Ad. The use of affiliate links will be also disclosed at the bottom of each post or page on Bridal Musings where they are present.
We sometimes use affiliate links on the site and our social channels. This simply means that if you click on a link we've shared and make a purchase from an affiliate site, Bridal Musings will receive a very small percentage of the sale. It's a little reward for recommending the product that doesn't affect you in any way (but helps us out a lot). If you don’t purchase anything, or if you purchase something and return it, we don’t receive any compensation.
Please note the ‘Shop' section of Bridal Musings (coming soon!) and ‘Shop The Look' widgets feature affiliate links. But, as with everything you see on Bridal Musings, a lot of love and care goes into curating our shop and we only ever feature products we love and think you will too.
All of the content on Bridal Musings is published with the best available information we have at the time of publication. However, product offerings, websites, and businesses change, so we cannot guarantee that all archived links and content remain accurate as of the time of reading.
We value your privacy. This policy document outlines how personal information is received, collected, and used.

Mediavine Programmatic Advertising (Ver 1.1)
The Website works with Mediavine to manage third-party interest-based advertising appearing on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.
Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.
The Website collects the following data using a cookie when serving personalized ads:
- IP Address
- Operating System type
- Operating System version
- Device Type
- Language of the website
- Web browser type
- Email (in hashed form)
Mediavine Partners (companies listed below with whom Mediavine shares data) may also use this data to link to other end user information the partner has independently collected to deliver targeted advertisements. Mediavine Partners may also separately collect data about end users from other sources, such as advertising IDs or pixels, and link that data to data collected from Mediavine publishers in order to provide interest-based advertising across your online experience, including devices, browsers and apps. This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website. Mediavine Partners may also create unique IDs to create audience segments, which are used to provide targeted advertising.
