What is the idea behind the Munaluchi Bridal magazine?
Munaluchi Bridal is a magazine catering to the stylish and cultural bride. It is meant to be a one stop wedding resource for African brides. There are many African girls here in the US that will find this resource helpful, whether it’s locating a top notch venue, a high-end designer, or finding a great seamstress. The magazine also includes a vendor list called the Diamond Directory, that includes high end vendors from all across the world, so the resource is not just limited to brides in the US.
What inspired this idea?
About three years ago I got married. At that time I was looking for a resource just like this, but there was nothing like it on the market. I found myself buying 3 to 4 bridal magazineS to get wedding ideas, yet none of them catered to a bride like myself. Instead, I had to rely on word of mouth or ask around to find a good DJ, seamstress, caterer, etc. It was inevitable that a niche magazine like this was long overdue.
Where do you hope to see Munaluchi Bridal in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years I believe Munaluchi Bridal Magazine will have circulation in the millions. I expect it to be as mainstream as BRIDES magazine and the others like it. Also, in the next 5 years I envision the magazine having several different editions catering to different regions, as well as a French language version.
Where can one obtain a copy of Munaluchi Bridal?
We recently finalized distribution channels. The magazine will be available in Shoprite, Barnes N Noble, Borders, Walmart, and Target with more stores to be added in the near future. Before the magazine is stocked in these stores, it can be purchased online on the website, http://www.munaluchibridal.com.
