    I think they will eventually stop printing and be online only.

    I look at Southern Weddings, Modern Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Real Simple Weddings….I am NOT buying ANY wedding mags until we get engaged…then I’m going to race out and buy whatever I see…lol…
    My fave site is MS, I like the layout, it’s super easy to find inspiration pics, and I will most likely use their planning tools to keep organized once we start the planning.

    Umm how about D. none of the above!  At least I hope they’ll stay the way they are!  They are my favorite type of eye candy, especially during long trips…which for us are like every other weekend.

    I also think D none of the above. Every time I go to Borders it seems the Bridal magazine rack is getting more crowded. Lots of cool international ones too, with different ideas than our US ones.

    • Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country

    I also think they will be online only. I am amazed they are still able to sell any ads… although I’m sure ads sell for a discounted rate compared to, 10 years ago? I dunno.

    We used to make a lot of TV ads, but really, rarely any local companies advertise on TV anymore because it’s just not effective, and they can reach more people for a better rate on the internet. I suspect ads for print mags are going much the same way.

    Viva la Internet!

    • Wedding: July 2008 - Oceanfront lawn and tent

    I bought a few when I was first engaged, but now that everything is online, the magazines all seemed behind the times.  I think they’ll all be replaced by the ‘bee πŸ™‚

    Might go online. Like Martha had tried with BluePrint. Dont think it worked cuz people werent ready… but its bowned to happen with all the websites and wedding blogs.

    Maybe a downloadable e-mag.

    I think they’ll stop printing in 10 years, and migrate entirely to on-line.

    I was actually thinking the other day – I wonder where the ‘bee will be in 10 years!  20 years? 50 years?!??  There will have to be a geriatric board! πŸ™‚  encore-encore board.  and a "how to help your granddaughter with her wedding" board! hah!
