Overview & History
Bringing brides and bridal business together is what Premier Bride does best. Our goal is to provide the bride with a complete source of information for planning her wedding locally, and to provide local businesses with opportunities to give the bride this information in print and online.
Premier Bride is a multi-faceted publishing and marketing venue, designed with both the wedding couple and bridal service providers needs in mind. PremierBride.com offers real time wedding information, helpful tips, photo galleries and quality vendor services. All of the bridal vendors who are listed online or in the print publication have been screened by the local Premier Bride Associate owner. This ensures that the brides and their families will only be interacting with professional wedding experts! Premier Bride is the trusted wedding publication for local resources and knowledge across the country.
Premier Bride was started by Steven J. Doumar, Founder and CEO of Doumar Marketing Corporation which published Premier Bride magazine since 1987. After 17 years in the bridal industry through this highly successful local publication and introduction of Premierbride.com, Erv & Debra Sadowski came on board in February 2005 to form KAI Publishing LLC. With 13 successful years as Premier Bride associates, the company continues to flourish with over 30 metropolitan markets in print and over 90 web markets. Premier Bride continues to gain market share and build on an over 20 year tradition!
