Our 2nd Digital Edition is Live and Colorful As Ever!

When we launched our first digital issue months ago, our goal was to reach an ever growing online audience spanning the globe.  And at that time, the magic number in my head was 10,000.  I thought that if we could reach 10,000 readers, then we did a great job.  Thankfully, we reached that magic number...in a week!  Our first ever digital edition, has reached over 350,000 readers and counting, and has clocked over 2.2 million unique pageviews.  Amazing. That’s the first word that comes to mind. Gratitude is the next.  We are ever so grateful for you...your support, your continuous words of encouragement, your patience with our tiny little team :)  Thanks for making us a digital influencer.  Thanks for always coming back for more.

This issue promises to bring you another full dose of digital fancy.   It’s our most multicultural issue to date, with weddings ranging from Milwaukee to South Africa.  After all, our slogan is, “for the bride who craves culture and style...” In addition, it’s filled to the brim with sweets - cakes, cupcakes, and the most unique dessert displays.  Check out our cover story on page 88, where we interview the duo behind Cupcakes Couture of Manhattan Beach and a styled shoot on page 171, where you can find cakes inspired by African art and fashion by award winning UK pastry chef Elizabeth Solaru.
Looking for that perfect wedding vendor?  Head over to page 185 to check out our revamped directory listing.  It’s now called The Coterie, our family of exceptional wedding professionals.  What we’re excited about most in our new vendor section, and throughout this digital issue, is the introduction of social media “hotlinks.”  These links provide direct access to our vendors’ social media channels. We recognize that social media drives traffic more than anything, so we want to ensure that our vendors get as much traction as possible.  Interested in becoming a member?  Click here to request an invite.

Speaking of “social,” I recently attended a luxury wedding summit called engage!12 in at the Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas.  It was inspirational, motivational, and certainly worth another visit.  In my Editor's Letter,  you’ll find 4 fabulous finds from some of the engage!12 speakers.  If you haven’t already, you should definitely add these books to your collection.

Once again, we are thankful to have you as a reader and aim to keep the inspiration coming.  As a thank you, we’re hosting a series of huge giveaways on our facebook pageWho doesn’t love free stuff?  First up, a gorgeous wedding dress courtesy of kathy ireland for Mon Cheri.  You'll need a pinterest account to enter this giveaway. If you aren't already on pinterest, email morgan@munaluchibridal.com for an invite.
