Catalyst Wedding Co. is the only online and print wedding publication with feminist values, featuring couples of all races, gender identities, cultures, religions, bodies, abilities, and sexual orientations.

Catalyst applies feminist values to the wedding industry in three ways: diversifying representation, challenging gendered roles, and standing for equal rights. 

We seek to empower our community of readers and business owners to bring race, gender, sexuality, class, bodies, and more into the conversations taking place in the wedding world, a huge industry that maintains some very traditional ideas about power. 

Catalyst is lovely to work with. I believe in their mission, and am proud to have them represent my brand. The whole team has made me feel welcome and well cared for.
— Kendra Renee Jewelry,

We offer companies and wedding professionals access to a niche audience of progressive couples and readers in more major cities across 46 states and more than 14 countries.

Our vendor directory is a growing resource for all couples to find equality-minded professionals who are dedicated to making their wedding experience special and reflective of their values. All vendors in our directory must be welcoming to LGBTQ+ couples, and we love to support women-, LGBTQ+, and minority-owned businesses. 

Here are some companies we DON'T want advertising with us:

  • We DON'T feature companies that pay women an unequal wage compared to their male counterparts

  • We DON'T feature companies that have publicly donated to groups opposed to same-sex marriage

  • We DON'T feature companies that utilize underpaid or unpaid labor in the creation of their products

  • We DON'T feature companies whose owners have made degrading or sexist public comments about women

  • We DON'T feature companies whose owners have made racist, homophobic, or transphobic comments

  • We DON'T feature plantation venues or any companies that fetishize the slave south

We also strongly encourage all our vendors to go through training with the Gay Wedding Institute in order to learn how to best serve their LGBTQ+ clients.

We’ll also create a basic sponsored post on our site and share across social media to introduce you and your services to our readers and followers. You will also receive permanent access to our Online Vendor Community Facebook Group, where we offer community support, educational opportunities, and weekly prompts and check-ins.



Instagram Takeover

Choose to do a week-long takeover or you can disperse the 5 sponsored posts out over a period of time (up to 3 months). Perfect to showcase your variety of work, or to announce a series of campaigns.



Basic Sponsored Post

Share your work with our readers through a sponsored blog post that will remain permanently on our site. Basic posts are created using a standard interview form and are meant to simply introduce you to our readers.



Premium Sponsored Post

Work with our editorial team as they work to craft a unique blog post that highlights your strengths and offerings to our readers. They will hop on the phone with you for a consultation session and will help you tap into what makes your business unique and will then produce a high quality post with strong SEO keywords. These posts see significantly more traffic than basic sponsored posts and also tend to lead to more bookings. One such post led to a booking within one hour of the post going live.
