POLICIES

Advertising Policy – Full Disclosure

Chic Vintage Brides is lovingly curated by me Amy Elsworth, the founder, owner and editor. On these pages I share what I love and find inspiring, in the hope that you do too. The integrity of my blog and the Chic Vintage Brides brand is far more important to me than money, so in addition to writing or editing all editorial content, I also personally review the application of each sponsor. Please know that I only accept sponsorship requests from companies that I truly believe are right for the blog, the CVB brand and, most importantly, for you its lovely readers.

I abide by word-of-mouth marketing standards set forth by the FTC regarding disclosure of compensation. Any time Chic Vintage Brides accepts money for promoting a product or vendor, I will disclose it. All sponsored posts will be clearly noted within the blog post. As the owner of this blog, I may also occasionally be compensated to provide my opinion or recommendation on products, services, web sites, and various other topics. Even though I may receive compensation for some of the content found on CVB, I will always provide my honest opinions, findings, or beliefs about sponsored topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this website are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote, or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider, or party in question. This blog does not contain any content which may present a conflict of interest.

At times, work from or by CVB sponsors will be featured in other posts such as real weddings, inspiration shoots, or inspiration boards; however, unless specifically disclosed as a sponsored post, these features and links are solely based upon the quality of the work and are not paid editorial content. Sponsorship does not in any way guarantee editorial coverage, and sponsors do not receive any preference with regard to editorial consideration.

There are also times where I may include affiliate links to products (either on the site on via CVBs social media accounts) This means if you click and visit or decide to purchase the product or other products on that site, I receive a small commission from it. Please know that I will only ever include products that I truly love, or believe you will love, and that fit the CVB brand. If you have any questions about this, feel free to email me!

All of the content on CVB is published with the best information available at the time of publication. However, product offerings, websites, and businesses do change, so I cannot guarantee that all archived links and content will remain accurate at the time of reading.

If you have an item, product or service you would like to submit to be shared on CVB, find out how to do so on my submissions page.
