Brides redesigns to appeal to the wedding hashtag generation 
Since the modern-day bride follows hashtags and pins floral arrangements, she is much less likely to rummage through a magazine for wedding inspiration when all the lace, tulle and satin she could ever think up are in the palm of her hand(held device). With that in mind, Brides is revamping its print strategy and shifting its content slightly to revolve more around wedding occasions, such as the planning of destination bachelorette parties. {WWD}
