Gourmet, Modern Bride, Elegant Bride, and Cookie closed by Conde Nast

  1. Not sports, but a hit on the magazine business is a hit on us all. Gourmet is a shocker, given his critical acclaim.

    Man, I always figured bridal magazines were the safest ones of all. Wow.

    More trouble in the Newhouse empire.

    I don't know. In an economy like this, the most obvious example of waste is the $20,000+ wedding.

    The failure of Gourmet is disappointing especially because they were doing some more journalistic articles, straying away from the usual recipe and restaurant fare.

    It seemed as though they were improving and expanding, journalistically.

    But people are still getting married and women are still buying dresses. Who knows.

    After getting married almost a decade ago, I took all my wife's torn-up bridal mags and sold them on ebay for darn near what she paid. Did seem like a rock-solid marketplace.

    I agree the $20K wedding should be out for good, but women still love to window shop, for lack of a better term. There's a friend of ours who wouldn't read a newspaper or a book with a gun to her head, but when she got engaged she cleaned out the bookstores of bridal mags. And she did the wedding on a budget.
