NEW YORK -- The parent company of SN, Fairchild Publications, has formed a new magazine group for bridal publications.

which along with Fairchild is a subsidiary of Advance Publications. Those three magazines moving from Conde Nast to Fairchild are Bride's, Modern Bride and Modern Bride Connections.

The bridal group's publishers will report to Mary Berner, Fairchild's president and chief executive officer; the editors will report to Patrick McCarthy, chairman and editorial director.

"Fairchild is ideally situated to be the home for the new integrated bridal group," Berner said in a statement. "Fairchild is already handling classified advertising sales for all the bridal magazines, and when we launched Elegant Bride, the Conde Nast Bridal Group's internet division created ElegantBride.com for us. The success of these integration steps represents only a fraction of the potential that we will have when we put together all our bridal assets under one roof."
