It sounds more geared towards a bride. I am sure the decorators listed pay a price to be listed in the magazine. Probably along the same guidelines as PWG book. Free to brides, vendors buy an ad in the magazine, that is how the magazine is able to be free.

I did download the magazine it is mostly full page bakery ads. There are some lovely cakes but I think it's geared more towards brides. I haven't noticed an increase in spam but maybe I have good spam control on my computer?

Probably as long as you didn't check any of the "click here" sections, you won't get the spam.

Yes it is legit. No you don't get spammed.

I signed up to have an ad start in mid -jan. It's 90.00 for 6 months. Thought I'd give it a try. Less expensive than other things.

The bride can search by state to find a decorator in her area. If you call they can tell you just how many e-subscriptions they get added each month.

Ask me again in 3- 6 months and I'll tell you if it was worth it. icon_lol.gif
