REAL BRIDES - A UNIQUE MAGAZINE
Since its inception REAL BRIDES has become one of the biggest selling bridal magazines in South Africa and in October 2019 its 100th edition was published.
REAL BRIDES is a unique bridal magazine featuring over 100 weddings per year. It brings you the stories, advice and ideas straight from the mouths of normal everyday brides - their proposals, their planning, their dresses; all the finer details and advice from their big day.
Prior to the launch of Real Brides, in-depth surveys were undertaken with brides-to-be. Almost unanimously the brides canvassed stated that they wanted information and advice from "real" brides as to how they had planned their weddings. They rated this information to be of major importance. They wanted to see what other brides and their bridesmaids wore; how and why they chose their venues; how they singled out particular vendors etc, etc.
Bride features in the magazine are the concept on which it is based and the key to the success of Real Brides as a publication.
REAL BRIDES is all about the weddings of brides who are normal everyday people and that is the key.
REAL BRIDES interviews each featured bride, providing invaluable first hand advice. The brides generously share their love stories, ideas and experiences; they give valuable advice on everything from wedding planning to ideas for choosing a colour scheme. So, if this is the kind of information you are looking for as a bride-to-be, then REAL BRIDES is just the magazine for you.
Another key to its success is that Real Brides is the only national monthly bridal/wedding magazine in South Africa.
