Time Inc. says it's closing Instyle Weddings magazine.

The last issue of the quarterly publication will hit newsstands on Dec. 25 and will remain on sale until March 5.

The wedding magazine market has been hit particularly hard in the economic downturn. Conde Nast closed Modern Bride and Elegant Bride in October. Magazines in other categories have suffered, too, because of lower ad sales.

Time Inc. said Tuesday that Instyle will continue to publish its special issues including InStyle Makeover and monthly issues of its flagship magazine.
