What is the Iconic Bride Magazine?
Iconic Bride is a size-inclusive bridal magazine. It's the first in our industry to highlight and always include curvy bodies in our content. We look for weddings and styled shoots that reflect this idea. Size-inclusive means that all sizes are welcome and that you will see straight and curvier bodies on our covers. Most times in popular bridal magazines you very rarely see curvy figures unless they are doing a size issue. How often do you wish you saw more images of yourself reflected in the bridal magazines you buy? Shouldn't you see those images all year and not just when it's trending? This is why we created Iconic Bride! To show the industry that nationally curvy models look just as stunning on covers as the straight-size models!
