Rock n Roll Bride Magazine Available to Order Online

When Gareth & I came up with the idea of a Rock n Roll Bride Magazine to hand out at the Designer Vintage Bridal Show we had no idea how crazy the internet would go for it!

I love print. Typography and images look so much more amazing on glossy paper. This is how they are supposed to be seen! However I was always under the impression that most of my readers preferred blogs to print magazines. They’re free, they’re easily and quickly updated and you can comment and discuss things about the articles right there and then. Yet when I shared the front cover of this first issue on twitter and facebook, you guys went mad for it, demanding (serious…it was kinda scary) where you could buy a copy! So you gave us an idea…

For years people have been telling me I should write a book – a book about blogging or about wedding planning…well about anything really. But you know what? Although I hugely admire bloggers who write books, I’m not really a booky kinda gal (well not yet, anyway!)…I am however a magazine junkie. So what better way to channel this ‘oh you need to get into print’ nag than to create my own magazine?! By no means is Rock n Roll Bride going exclusively into print. The online blog will still be the main focus of the business, but I do love the idea of something you can hold in your hands, collect and keep forever.

Thanks to your support, we’ve decided to produce a quarterly ‘best of the best’ magazine. It will be advertisement free and will be essentially a glossy, limited edition and highly collectable extension of the website. The magazine will be a condensed selection of my favourite real weddings, articles and DIY tutorials.

We budgeted for this first issue to be free, so if you want to get your mitts on a limited edition copy (we only have about 500 copies left in stock) all we ask is that you cover the shipping and handling costs. For future issues we’ll be charging a small cover price + P&P…and yes we will ship worldwide!

Each issue will be limited edition and for the foreseeable future you’ll only be able to buy it through rocknrollbride.com (however if a publisher comes-a-knocking who knows where this could lead?!)

The magazine has even got some press of its own already. PrintWeek featured the launch in its online and print magazine this week! You can read the article online here. How nuts is that?

    I can’t believe I’m going to get this for free (P&P doesn’t count!)! Thanks so much Kat, and keep on going with such amazing ventures as this x

  3. I think a quarterly mag is a great idea – bravo Kat, you’re always paving the way! I’ve ordered mine and will look forward to seeing the best of the quarterly best in print x

  4. Dear Kat, we’ve never met or spoken even, but I have taken an interest and read your blog as well as other articles you’ve written in magazines. You are an inspiration to us all – both wedding planners and wedding photographers! I look forward to receiving your first edition magazine – congratulations!

    As soon as Luke and i got engaged i ran out and bought bridal magazines. I quickly realized that they all looked the same. I eventually kept one and got rid of the rest. Your magazine is covering an area which has been neglected for years. A magazine like yours simply does not exist. I can tell you with complete confidence that this will grow.

    Hi Kat
    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now. Even though I’m not engaged I just love coming on here to look at all these amazing weddings, a feast for the eyes! Just purchased a magazine and I can’t wait to get it! Hopefully it doesn’t scare the boyfriend off! He shouldn’t be to surprised though as I’m always telling him about the amazing weddings I’ve looked at on here
    Congrats on your first magazine!

    thanks everyone so blown away by the response! poor gareth now has a lot of magazines to package up!

  8. Just came running like Schumacker from the office to get two copies of the mag! One for me and one for my friend Silvia!
    Thank you Kat! This makes me sooooo happy!
    Can’t stand to read the mag…!
    You must be proud of yourself and of the work done here.

  9. I’ve been a long time fan of rock n roll bride even though I only got engaged a matt of weeks ago. This magazine has come out at the perfect time for me and I am delighted to be getting my hands on one to show family and friends how I want my wedding to feel. The only thing I would say Kat is charge for the next one. Seriously!

    Mine is ordered. When will it arrive? I’m getting married in 6 weeks and I want it before that. Just to make sure I haven’t missed anything cool, that I could still incorporate.

    Ordered! I’ve been following your blog for only a few months, but I’m obsessed! I’m only 19, but I’ve been having wedding fever pretty bad lately! :P Thanks for the wonderful alternative inspiration! I can’t wait to get my copy!

  12. Way to go! This is a great idea! I love magazines too. Have tons of them lying about all the time. A beautiful wedding magazine here in Ireland recently ceased publishing because they were convinced that apps and reading on ipads was the future. I asked the guy if he asked any women where they read magazine. He said no. And I said that I read them in the bath and in the bathroom. I’m not going to read an ipad in the bath obviously. And the guy looked dumbstrucked. He had obviously never considered where magazines were being read, and was only thinking in his guy tech/app way.
    I think this idea is great! I hope you will feature some rocking Irish weddings too!
