So most of you know that the magazine industry is fighting an uphill battle thees days with the economy in the tank, and content platforms moving over to digital. Well two of Conde Nasts’ three bridal magazines are the latest victims.  Elegant Bride, and Modern Bride folded today, leaving Brides as the sole Conde Nast bridal title. They kicked up the frequency, so that Brides will now be available monthly to represent Conde in the bridal market. Gourmet and Cookie also folded today making it a death toll of four at the holy grail of magazine publishing this morning.

When I first started in this industry, my very first job was at Modern Bride, so this is especially sad for me. The staff there is really wonderful, and very good at what they do. Condolences to everyone who is affected by this.
