I'll be honest, after coordinating weddings for a few years I learned my lesson and don't buy the traditional magazines that many brides do like The Knot or Brides. I have found several magazines that I LOVE!!!
So, if you're looking for a magazine with a ton of ads and few real weddings or actual advice then don't proceed. But, if you're looking for a magazine with tons of photos of real weddings and inspiration created by top wedding professionals and lots and lots of photos and less ads, then take a look.
