Special Services

Ad Production Services
Ad Creation services for your print ad are available. For those bridal vendors without advertising agencies or in-house digital production staffs, our award-winning design team can create your ad. Design, copy editing, and proofing services for a full-page ad are $595; for a fractional page ad they are $395.
Advertising Photography services are also available. Ad photography to generate images for your ad, and for any further online or promotional uses you might envision, are priced from $495 to $1250, depending on complexity, plus expenses.
Online Features
After a feature has been published in the magazine, as a special service, we can reformat the article for the Manhattan Bride website. This includes adding all the appropriate Social Media icons to the article and also linking the article to all related articles, all appropriate landing pages, all appropriate menu categories, and to your Vendor Profile. The charge is $795 per each six-month period.
Use of Editorial Photography
Photo Usage. As a special service to our advertisers and to our brides, we reformat our award-winning On-Location Fashion features and put them on our website. Clicking on any such photo expands the image into a large format, which you can download for your website and for most printing projects.
Photo Credit Required. To comply with our copyright and our model releases, any image used for your site or for a printed project must be accompanied by the following credit “As Seen in Manhattan Bride, Photo by Rick Bard.”
Original Hi-Res Image Fee. If you want any original hi-res images for a more elaborate printed project, the fee for each image provided is $150. In that case as well, the image(s) must be accompanied by the above credit line.
