I love swooning over the pages of the latest glossy bridal magazines as much as the next person. But there’s little to no content aimed at inspiring and educating those of us who work in the industry.  I’ve long thought there was a gap in the market, and was thrilled to see the International Academy of Wedding and Event Planning launch their quarterly Wedding Business Magazine in January 2016.

Since then, this online publication has grown into an amazing resource for the industry, providing forward-thinking inspiration and advice from top industry experts all over the globe. Each page is also beautifully illustrated with images from a stunning trend-led shoot, so you’ll find plenty of visual inspiration too!


With over 100 pages packed with valuable industry insights, in this issue you’ll hear from founders of the ultimate wedding industry conference, Engage!, leading wedding planner David Tutera, wedding podcast host Aleisha McCormack of  Bridechilla Podcast fame, Michelle Loretta of Sage Wedding ProsAllSeated founder Sandy Hammer, and more!
