Product Description

Bridal Guide addresses all the needs of engaged couples - from the latest news in fashion and beauty to the best registry items and hottest honeymoon destinations. It's committed to helping brides and grooms have their dream wedding on a practical budget.

Amazon.com Review

In a world where we're barraged with the most expensive wedding planning options, Bridal Guide is a breath of fresh air. For the bride planning a wedding without unlimited resources, this title supplies all the usual and necessary wedding-planning tips and advice, but not every solution is expensive-a refreshingly low-key and realistic approach. Beyond the wedding, relationship advice and home planning are also discussed. Published six times a year, Bridal Guide includes regular features on fashion, beauty, health, and wedding planning, as well "Budget Basics" with money-saving tips, shopping guidelines, and Q&A. As in all bridal magazines, advertising focuses on wedding attire, honeymoon destinations, registry information, and other nuptial necessities. --Elizabeth Bowker

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Wedding Mags November 9, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
The three real contenders are Bridal Guide, Bride's and Modern Bride. Bride's and Modern Bride seem to be the same magazine sometimes, and in fact are now owned by the same people. If you want something more suited to a "real bride", it would seem that Bridal Guide is your best choice.

If you have $10,000 to spend on your dress, then by all means go for Bride's magazine, but if you are like the rest of us, then Bridal Guide has, BY FAR, the best selection for you. The advice seemed to be geared for regular people trying to have a fabulous wedding, and for the right price too!

There's a wealth of information on planning the event, dealing with inlaws, Honeymoon destinations, buying the dress ... EVERYTHING you could want and more. I love this magazine. Thank you Bridal Guide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bridal Guide Helps Make Your Wedding Day Complete November 8, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Bridal Guide is a lengthy magazine designed to appeal to brides in waiting and to those women who see marriage on the horizon. This magazine is devoted to bridal fashion and to other things that are involved in making the day special and memorable. Besides the fashion, one can read about wedding planning, honeymoon ideas, photography, and other wedding- related things.

When you read a copy of Bridal Guide, what stands out more than anything are the photos. This is the main reason people read this magazine in the first place: To look at wedding attire and compare different styles. Models wearing wedding gowns are abundant in this publication and some of the bridal gowns they adorn are quite stunning. To help future brides make a possible purchase, it is common to find a phone number and/or a web site with the majority of the photos. Bridal attire is the main focus of this magazine, but there are also some pictures of grooms and of other wedding party members, with models displaying other fashions for sale, once again complete with phone number and web page.

The part of this magazine that focuses its attention on honeymoons and travel is probably my favorite part of the issue. What I like is the fact that this is one part of the magazine that can appeal/apply to anyone, regardless of marital status. These honeymoon tips and destination information provide some good reading material for the bride to be or anyone else who happens to read the magazine.

Bridal Guide is a very lengthy publication, with each issue containing around 500 pages! This is more than double the length of most other magazines and it can make the issue seem a little overwhelming at times. Also, this magazine is saturated with ads.

I ordered this magazine as well as Brides magazine and Martha Stewart Weddings for my daughter because all three were on her Christmas wish list. She was very pleased even though the magazines aren't fair to full figured women. A word of caution. I went ahead and ordered before I checked the expected first delivery date, which was supposed to be April. Luckily it arrived in early February. This is a good magazine if you're planning a moderate cost wedding.

You can pretty much find just about anything you want to know about any subject anything on the internet. That being said, I bought this for the convenience of having it at my fingertips anywhere, anytime. Very informative, great pics and interesting articles.

Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
For my June 2010 wedding, I subscribed to Bridal Guide to get ideas. It is a very useful magazine, with lots and lots of gorgeous pictures and ideas. However, after a few months, I noticed that things tended to be repetitive, which is only to be expected. There's only so many different ways to fold a napkin, or so many different flower petals to sprinkle on the aisle before the bride walks down. The best part of bridal magazines is the pictures of wedding dresses, at least in my book, but they tend to be the same dresses in each issue for a few months, making it less fun to flip through.

The other downside to bridal magazines, and a big part of the reason that a few of them have shut down, is that most of the info can be found in the big bridal websites, and for free. In fact, they often have far more information, since they collect it over a long period of time, giving you plenty of past information to browse through.

All in all, this magazine is a good resource, and I do recommend it, but if you're short on cash (gotta save up for that wedding!), skip it and go online.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and Entertaining November 16, 2010
By Hoid
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I purchased this subscription for my girlfriend (now Fiancée) for the past couple of years. She loves the magazine. A little too much in fact, and now that she has a wedding to plan it comes in handy. The magazine has tons of examples and ideas for ones own wedding plus tips, advice, and even a month by month calendar to help out. Really a great buy if getting married.

As for Magazines through Amazon, I have no complaints. I even had to change the address a couple times and it was a one minute process and very easy to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fluff, not much content July 9, 2014
By Anne S.
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This magazine is great if you want to look at pretty wedding pictures but don't have a Pinterest. There's not a whole lot of practical advice (or at least advice that I find practical) but it's a decent place to find national vendors and such.

And the pictures are really pretty...
