I really like the cover of this magazine. It showed three modern-day wedding dresses which should appeal to many brides-to be.
The magazine was great for the amount of wedding dresses throughout... probably the most choice Ive seen out of a lot of bridal magazines. The article "New Year, Fabulous New You" was great as it showed that normal brides-to-be can get a make-over to look radiant on their big day ! There was a lot of adverts for rings and shoes which I also liked because you dont normally see as much on those items. Overall, the magazine is well worth keeping as there are a lot of nifty ideas on fancy finger food, table lay-outs and "14 Chic & Simple Wedding Ideas" !!

Stuck for ideas for your wedding dress? Well Irish Weddings Journal should point you in the right direction. It is filled with stunning wedding dresses (both photo-spreads and full page ads.) and really is excellent for those of us looking for wow wedding outfits. There are separate sections on dresses for the mother of the bride and some stunning designs for bridesmaids.
This magazine (a hefty 336 pages) came with two FREE magazines - a fabulous 100 page Reception Guide and a great show magazine, profiling just a few of the exciting things to be seen at The Wedding Journal Shows in Cork, Belfast and Dublin.
This magazine is very much speaking to the new bride just engaged following Christmas and New Year. Great articles on how to theme your day, trends for bridal wear, wedding bands with a difference. There is a lovely page on shoes for the bride but unfortunately nearly all were from the UK which was a bit disappointing.
Also look out for the section offering really cute ideas on table settings and if you are planning a wedding abroad you’ll love the feature on favourite destination wedding locations from the exotic rainforest in Australia to a skyscraper in New Yor
