Arizona Bride is Back

Arizona couples planning to tie the knot will soon have an amazing resource available to them with the revival of the Arizona Bride brand. Recently acquired by Iron Diamond Media in Minneapolis, the Arizona Bride website will be introduced in February and the biannual print magazine will launch its Spring/Summer 2023 edition in March. 


This won’t be Arizona Bride’s first appearance on Arizona newsstands. The magazine previously was published from 2005 to 2016 by the Bride Media Group of Tiger Oak Media, also based in Minnesota, and acquired by Iron Diamond in November 2021. The group comprises six regional bridal magazines: California Wedding Day, Oregon Bride, Minnesota Bride, Nebraska Wedding Day, Seattle Bride and Wisconsin Bride.

Like its sister publications, Arizona Bride will highlight high-end bridal fashion and provide editorial content that focuses on trends, offers inspiration, and helps guide and educate the nearly wed. Chelsea Gibson, managing editor of the West Coast publications, will take the reins as editor of Arizona Bride. Gibson has been with the Brides Group since 2019. 


Sonja Babich, owner and CEO of Iron Diamond Media, says, “Arizona Bride is back and better than ever! Couples planning to tie the knot will soon have an amazing resource connecting them to all the latest trends, inspirations, and vendors in the Arizona wedding industry," said Sonja Babich, Owner and CEO of Iron Diamond Media.”


And like the other bride brands, Arizona Bride will also feature the best of the best in the region’s wedding industry with the annual “Best of …” awards. Vendors in numerous categories are nominated by clients and peers, top finalists in each category are listed, and following a voting period, winners are announced at a summer gala hosted by Iron Diamond.  


The magazine will also showcase of some of the region’s most beautiful weddings in its “Real Weddings” section. Each of Iron Diamond’s brands features select love stories and wedding day highlights of recent newlyweds. Couples, readers, event planners and photographers are encouraged to submit their entries to be considered for publication by the editorial staffers at each magazine.


"Arizona has so many beautiful wedding venues,talented event planners, florists, photographers, caterers and more," Babich said, "that we are thrilled and truly grateful to become part of this showstopping wedding community and now have the opportunity to showcase all their talent and hard work."
