I'm all for the printed page. I nearly did my senior thesis project on the fact that I thought magazines would stand the test of time even in our ever-increasing digital society. There's just something so magical and personal about holding a magazine in your hands and turning it's pages… I LOVE magazines. At one time I subscribed to around 20 different publications… however… I can't help but fall in love with the idea of a e-zines and digital mags. The eco-friendly aspect gets me. The accessibility gets me. The FREE aspect gets me. 🙂
I have been anticipating the release of the new Nonpareil Magazine ever since Maddy at Inspired Bride announced it on her blog. I am a huge fan of Maddy and might have a tiny girl crush on her, not only for her wonderful blog but her design eye. She is one of the creators of Nonpareil Magazine.
Nonpareil Magazine‘s first issue is chock full of inspiration and ideas that you can pull off yourself. They've even included tutorials with step-by-step instructions for how to make felt/yarn boutteniers, adorable headpieces for your bridal look, and also have a page devoted to template downloads for numerous different wedding paper items such as save-the-dates, invitations, favor boxes and more!
This is definitely a publication that I think would be helpful and inspiring to all of my fellow budget savvy brides. 🙂 Please RUN, don't walk, over to check out the first issue!!
