Time Inc. Shutters InStyle Weddings

instyle weddings.jpgOn a day when layoffs are hitting across the company, Time Inc. has decided to shutter its InStyle wedding spin-off.

The last issue of InStyle Weddings, a quarterly that launched as a special issue in 2000, will be on newsstands on December 25, a magazine spokesperson told FishbowlNY.

Case in point: earlier this year, Condé Nast shuttered two of its bridal mags and restructured its remaining bridal group.

Sadly, the decision to shutter InStyle Weddings will result in a some layoffs — we hear about nine people — but the brand will continue to publish special issue spin-offs like InStyle Hair in the spring and InStyle Makeovers in the fall.
