    that was for my first wedding - which was local.

    this time around, i have barely looked at magazines at all!

      here's the Magazine's website.

      Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine - bridal gowns and fashion, wedding destinations, honeymoons, local planning resources - reception sites, photographers, caterers and more.

        Jonathan,

        I think it all boils down to the type of exposure you are looking for. Personally, I think it would be an excellent business decision. I spend more time looking at that magazine than any other. Other magazines tend to mesh together in my mind for some reason, but when I read GO, the detail is phenomenal and the quality of the ads & articles are top notch.

        I say go for it, and if you do, let us know so I can find your ad!

          Hey Jonathan. I looked at the local wedding mags (Twin Cities as well) because we decided that we really wanted a photographer we'd be able to meet before the wedding.

            I say no but only because I selfishly don't want you to get big and your prices to go up.

              lol, thanks Jaime. I have to raise my prices for next year though. If I want my business to keep growing, I have to go with the flow. Email me though, we'll be able to work something out

                  Jonathan I love Grace Ormonde Magazine, but I must admit it's only for ideas. I wish that I had a tenth of the budget of most of those brides. I enjoy party planning so it's strictly for copying ideas. I for the most part feel as if there vendors are out of my price league.

                  I also really enjoy Inside Weddings and find it a bit more helpful. Hope my opinion helps you decide!

                    Going along with that idea you would probably reach a lot of high end clientele that would be able to afford your work. (No offense to you Jenetta, I doubt I could afford the things in there either!)

                    We (my Dad's art gallery here in Dallas) advertise in Modern Luxury and it has definitely brought us in some great clients with money to spend!

                    Advertising is always a good idea ~ especially when it gets your name out there to people who can comfortably afford your services.

                    So there's my unselfish opinion.

                      I've never heard of the Mag before. When I see a wedding mag I scan for pics that catches my eye that is what makes me buy it. I hate mag's that have a ton of ads, I won't buy it for that very reason.

                      But with that said, any advertising is good exposure, it's all about getting your name out there.
