It's A Wrap....... For Elegant Bride & Modern Bride

Monday was a sad day in the Wedding Magazine world as two great publications have been closed for good by its parent company Conde Nast.

Conde Nast has announced yesterday that it is closing 4 publications including Elegant Bride and Modern Bride. Many of us have combed through these pages looking for inspiration, ideas and vendors for weddings and blog ideas. According to the Wall Street Journal, the main reason for the cut in publications was due to a decrease in advertising dollars from retailers. They have also decided to cut Cookie magazine as well as the print version of Gourmet magazine while retaining the digital and tv segments of the Gourmet business.

Production on these publications has stopped immediately and most positions at these publications will be vacated today Wednesday, October 7, 2009.

Our prays are with everyone who is effected by this great lost to the bridal industry.

Tell all of your friends, family and brides not to subscribe to these publications. For those of you who already have subscriptions, I am pretty sure they will give you the opportunity to redeem your money or switch your subscription over to a similar publication.

I'm very sad because Modern Bride was one of my favorite bridal magazines.
