Yesterday A Practical Wedding launched two amazing new features: The Vendor Directory and The Venue Directory. Now you can painlessly find vendors and venues that match your values. It makes supporting deserving businesses that much easier when planning your wedding! I wish this had been around when I was planning my wedding.
I am absolutely thrilled to be included in the directory, and most importantly, I am proud to say that I took the APW Sanity Pledge – a requirement for inclusion:
All APW-approved vendors, agree that:
… A wedding is an awesome party, but it’s the marriage that really matters.
… It takes two people to get married. It’s not all about the bride (and sometimes there isn’t a bride to begin with).
… We support LGBTQ couples right to marry, and we are delighted to work with them.
… We don’t charge a premium just because we heard the word “wedding.”
… We will be upfront and fair about our pricing. We won’t surprise you with a secret fee because you want frosting on the cake, not just the cake.
… You don’t have to have cake at your wedding.
… However you decide to tie the knot, we’re on your team.
… Weddings come in all different shapes/sizes/colors/budgets/etc., but as long as you two end up married to each other, it will have been a successful wedding.
Nothing has summed up my values as a professional in the wedding industry better than this! If you’re looking for florists, officiants, planners, venues… etc. who fit a certain mold, then the APW vendor directory is the best place to start looking.
