FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Minneapolis, Minn. — Be better. That’s a continuing goal of Iron Diamond Media, parent company of Oregon 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 Oregon Bride is in order.   

“We are proud to announce Oregon Bride will be making the change to Oregon 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.  

Oregon Wedding Day embraces love and marriage, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race or religion. The brand is always on the lookout to reflect Oregon’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 name change was announced to the Oregon wedding community at the Best Of 2023 event on July 25 at The Nines Hotel and was greeted with a standing ovation. The 2024 Spring/Summer issue of the magazine (coming in January) will be the debut of Oregon 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 Oregon wedding community!”
