brideLIFE

is the essential guide to destination weddings in Barbados ~ a luxury digital lifestyle magazine and brand featuring real weddings, locations, bridal fashion, accessories and beauty alongside vendor profiles and wedding ideas & inspirations. Established in 2012, brideLIFE focuses on the Barbados wedding market via a digital publication: brideLIFE Magazine, blog/website and social media. brideLIFE Magazine delivers engaging and relevant content to our readers and subscribers alongside gorgeous photography and clean, clear design.

The wedding industry is a multi-billion dollar revenue earner and the Caribbean is one of the top options for couples from both North America and Europe. Today’s brides are extremely tech-savvy and utilise the web and social media sites to research and plan their wedding. Many destination wedding couples return to the location of their wedding at some point in the future, whether on vacation or as an opportunity to renew their vows.
