Minneapolis, Minn. — Be better. That’s a continuing goal of Iron Diamond Media, parent company of Seattle Bride magazine. And in view of that goal, to support change and encourage diversity, Iron Diamond wants to emphasize that weddings are for everyone, thus a more inclusive name for Seattle Bride is in order.

“We are proud to announce Seattle Bride will be making the change to Washington Wedding Day,” says publisher Alexis Sanabria.

“We have received much and valued feedback over the years on how we can be better,” says Sonja Babich, CEO and owner. This is just one step toward being better, she believes.

Washington Wedding Day embraces love and marriage, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race or religion. The brand is always on the lookout to reflect Washington state’s diversity in its pages and on its website, and encourages all couples to take advantage of the trends and tips it offers.

“We also encourage couples to submit their own love stories and photos for our Real Weddings section,” says Lara Burnap, editorial director. “We want you all to know we listened. It’s so important to us to celebrate diversity and love of every kind.”

The 2024 Spring/Summer issue of the magazine (coming in January) will be the debut of Washington Wedding Day, although the website has already made the name change.

“We are really excited and ready to take this brand to the next level,” says Babich. “This is a big moment for our team and for the Seattle wedding community, as well as the rest of Washington!”
