Aisle approached me with a request to offer Expert Music Planning Tips for Weddings for their June issue. They said they love our modern style, and that we embrace modern technology. When I downloaded the free wedding magazine App on my iPad, I was blown away. This was like no other wedding magazine that I have ever seen. It was cutting edge, interactive, and fun! I liked their clean, modern look as well. So of course, I said yes! I thought it would be fun to do a little Q and A of my own because you are going to want to see this.
1.What inspired the creation of Aisle Magazine?
We heard over and over again that there is too much noise out there when trying to plan a wedding, making the experience overwhelming. We are super excited about the possibilities of emerging technology in the industry.
2.How is Aisle different?
Aisle cuts a clean path through all the noise and chaos to deliver the best ideas and inspiration from all over the world wedded to the best local information and resources to inspire and help the Bride to plan her perfect wedding!
A bride can actually have the the cake or DJ she sees in the magazine because the vendors are available in the brides hometown or chosen wedding city, or they travel everywhere.
Although many articles have a local focus, Aisle’s inspiration and ideas are universal and Aisle wedding magazine readership is worldwide.
We also took the approach that what if within the wedding magazine you could view behind the scenes videos, slide shows, sample music from potential DJs, and view a videographer’s portfolio? Wouldn’t it be so convenient to buy items or set up appointments via email with a swipe of your finger? Well with Aisle, you can!
3. Where can everyone download Aisle?
On Itunes or at the App store HERE!
4. Are print magazines extinct?
Not yet, but I would categorize them as endangered. There are many people out there, myself included that love the nostalgia of the print magazine. Like the photography industry that transitioned from film to digital, that luxury of holding the print magazine in your hands will likely give way to the convenience of the digital technology revolution. You could have hundreds of different magazines as well as back issues with you at any given time wherever you go on your tablet. Could you imagine trying to haul all of those actual print magazines from place to place with you? Impossible!
5. What is next for Aisle?
Helping more brides in more cities on more devices. Coming Soon is the Dallas, TX Summer issue. This issue will be over 5 times the size of the premiere issue overflowing with the most current bridal trends such as Great Gatsby Wedding Inspiration, the latest looks from Bridal Fashion Week, and the latest technology to make your planning easier. A feature we are very excited about in our June issue is Expert Q&A with you Mike Steffan, our favorite Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and Raleigh Wedding DJ! We are thrilled that you are available nationwide!
