If you keep up with our Facebook page you may have seen a few cryptic posts about a fun partnership I’ve been working on. Well I can now officially spill a little bit of the details.
I am excited to announce that Indie Wed is partnering with Design Bureau magazine as a national media sponsor for the coming year. DB covers all facets of design and their mantra is “Inspiring Design Dialogue“. They believe that all art (and artists) is intertwined and they cover everything from fashion, industrial design, to interior design and landscape architecture. Design Bureau is distributed nationally in all major newsstands, specialty bookstores and Barnes & Noble, as well as internationally in 13 countries.
Okay, so you may be wondering what this has to do with weddings. Currently they are working on a new project, a huge, special edition issue; Weddings By Design featuring inspirational, unique wedding events & those involved with bringing it to life! This special edition will also have a great resource guide for brides to plan their perfect day. The issue will be distributed nationally in early 2013. Their hope is that this will become a yearly edition. I have seen some sneak peeks of the issue but since they are still in the planning stages, I can’t share anything yet. Of course I will as soon as I can. In addition to the print issue, they will be creating a microsite online to correspond with the launch that will become an online resource for everything in the issue and beyond.
So what does this mean for you and for Indie Wed? Well for Indie Wed, it means full page ad space in a nationally distributed magazine for all our 2013 events as well as a presence for all our events on their microsite. There are a few other little details we are working out that are exciting but I want to keep under wraps for now. This will mean greater exposure for us and in turn for all our fabulous vendors. In return for all this press love, Design Bureau will be at all our events, handing out magazines, and other related treats regarding the wedding issue. Attendees will get to see the special issue up close and in person. From what I have seen so far, this will be jam-packed with all sorts of wedding inspiration that is way cooler than what is on most newstands today. If you love good design and are interested in the most innovative things in wedding design and planning going on nationally and worldwide, this will be the magazine for you.
Whew. I’ve been eager to share this for a while. Although I still keeping some details hush-hush, this is very exciting and I hope something that will be good not only for Indie Wed but for our vendors and attendees.
