Say goodbye to InStyle Weddings
I just found out that InStyle Weddings is no longer with us. Their last published edition went on the stands this past Christmas. Though it wasn't one of the magazines I religiously bought during wedding planning days (like Martha Stewart Weddings), I'm still a bit bummed because it contained lots of gorgeous celebrity wedding pictures fabulously out of my price range. Perhaps they'll continue their website - I just took a look at instyleweddings.com and seems to be going strong. btw, Christina Hendricks of Mad Men and her 60's inspired wedding is featured...wonderfully eclectic and worth taking a peek!
It seems like wedding magazines, or to be honest, the entire publications industry, is heading south pretty rapidly. InStyle Weddings is just another casualty in the market catering to brides, like Elegant Bride and Modern Bride, which makes sense given the amount of free information and resources you can find online.
Out of curiosity, I googled publications that went belly up in 2009 and was surprised by the number that popped up. Check it out for yourself to see if there are any surprises.
