Brides magazine turns 75
Even if you’re not a blushing bride-to-be, you may find this interesting. Brides magazine is celebrating its 75th anniversary with decades of outrageous fashion, classic covers and wedding trends that define the times.
The magazine, originally named So You’re Going to Be Married, was launched during the Depression, a time when businesses had to be creative to stay afloat. That was in 1934 and two years later it was renamed The Bride’s Magazine. In the ’70s, it became simply Bride’s and in 2005 the apostrophe disappeared.
Brides owns many first. Along with being the first wedding magazine, it was also the first to cover interfaith marriages, intercultural couples, pregnant brides and same sex marriages.
The magazine also pushed the wedding gown to fashion status and helped launch super careers. Heidi Klum’s first cover was Brides.
The February/March issue will be on stands through Feb. 9.
