A note from our publisher, Sonja Babich.

Greetings! My name is Sonja Babich, and I’m the new publisher of Minnesota Bride. As publisher, I put myself in brides’ and grooms’ shoes every day, thinking how our magazine and brand can continue to be a helpful tool, offering ideas and inspiration for planning the perfect wedding day.

I also switch into my other pair of shoes to represent Minnesota Bride members, because I am their No. 1 cheerleader! You will now know who our members are by their pink Minnesota Bride member badge icon displayed on their web pages, ads and social media. Our members work so hard to make sure our brides’ and grooms’ wedding days are exactly how they’d dreamed. Our members are truly the best of the best in Minnesota—they are the key reason why our couples’ big days go off without a hitch, and that’s thanks to our members’ vast experience and professionalism. Visit our Vendor Directory or turn to our Essentials Guide and Venue Tour in the magazine. Here, you’ll find a variety of our members who are ready to make wedding day dreams come true.

Now! Mark your calendar for Minnesota Bride Wedding 101! I am personally inviting you to attend this private event on March 15th at The Hutton House, a simply beautiful venue. The Minnesota Bride team has chosen the best of the best of our members to give expert advice for planning the big day. It will be a day of fun for brides, grooms, their bride squad and families!
