What are they looking for?

Details, details, details.

They want a few of the bride and the groom during the major events of the day (like the ceremony and the first dance maybe), but they mostly want details of the event. Even for party blogs. They want detail heavy posts. They are looking for Several different angles, horizontal and vertical of the same detail set so that they can choose what might look good on their publication. 80% of the photos need to be details and idea oriented (in my experience).
