How to Throw the Perfect ‘Hispanic’ Wedding

It was only a matter of time before somebody came up with a Spanish-language magazine for the Latino bride. So meet Bodas USA la revista, a magazine, whose editors and writers are pitching as the ultimate source of information for Hispanic brides.

Helming the new glossy is former La Opinión editor Katia Ramirez-Blankley, who was at hand this week to present the mag to California’s advertising community:

“Our editorial team is made up of Latino professionals from across the country who are experts in wedding planning, cuisine, travel, relationships, nutrition, entertainment […] but most importantly our stories are not translations but rather written in Spanish with a cultural touch that only Latinos can relate to,” Ramirez-Blankley said.

I guess that only means Latinos can expect to see some of the following headlines in the new title:
