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.
