Hey Girl, Here's Your New Favorite Bridal Magazine

Honestly, I've never been into bridal magazines.  If anything, I usually use them as food porn and eye fuck the cakes.  At least until recently when Bride & Groom magazine caught my eye and subsequently stole my heart.  The first issue I ever saw (Winter/Spring 2012) had the spitting image of Jessica Rabbit on the cover.  Think about it, when was the last time you were standing in line at the grocery store skimming magazines and you thought to yourself, "wow, that is one sultry bride"?  Probably never.

The lovely people over at Washingtonian magazine though are doing some amazing things with their bridal publication.  Not only are they publishing Bride & Groom, but the icing on the proverbial wedding cake is that  the writing is kept in house too; so, you know you're guaranteed quality content.  Here's a peek at what's inside your typical issue: 

stunning editorials (more here and here),

bold graphics,

and advertisements that almost blend into the publication.  

Plus, there's even a little something to entice the dapper man in your life.

My favorite section is called Real Weddings which, as you may have guessed from the title, features actual ceremonies that happened in and around D.C.

What you may not have guessed is that these people are often on the cover, such as Lili Tuggle-Weir above.    

While the magazine isn't necessarily new (it debuted in December of 2008), a lot of people might not have it on their radar.  Only two issues are published a year, Winter/Spring and Summer/Fall, and they're distributed locally.  If you're headed to D.C. for the holidays, be sure to keep an eye out for Winter/Spring 2013 which hit newsstands this past Friday; and if you can't get your hands on a physical copy, fear not.  Judging from Washingtonian's other publications, it's safe to assume a digital version is probably in the near future.
