My Sponsor Policy


by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

So, you might have noticed that over on the left side of the blog I now have sponsors. Or as I like to think of them, Sponsors! Weee! Soon you will start seeing introductory posts, where I give you a idea of who these sponsors are. I’m excited to get to share some of the cool indie wedding resources that I love with you. Sponsors help support this site, and will help me bring you more and more practical content.

I know you guys, Team Practical, approach wedding spending in a variety of different ways. Some of you are spending next to nothing on our weddings, and I applaud you! Many of you, however, are spending an amount of money that seems like a HECK of lot, whether that is $5,000 or $25,000, and you want to figure out to spend that money responsibly. Hopefully I can introduce you to cool, independent wedding elves, that provide good practical options for spending that wedding dough. Not every sponsor will be right for every one of you, and that is fine. Each couple here has their own priorities, and spend their money accordingly, and that is one of the things that makes your weddings so incredible.

And for you practical wedding elves out there, I’ve made sure to price my ads very reasonably, to help small indie vendors build their businesses.

Here is to more creative, thrifty, and sane!

    Meg,
    Speaking of sponsors, friends of mine at Exclusively Weddings said if I ever ran into a quality wedding related website to ask if they might be interested in accepting some type of listing? Is it possible to have them listed in the left navigation with your other sponsors? How much do you charge for that?What kind of monthly traffic are you running? Can they just get a simple text link in your left navigation instead?
    On a personal note, I am also interested in exchanging blog links with you on your blog. How would you like your blog listed on my wedding blogroll? I can probably get you added within a day or two if interested under any text you wish.

    Look forward to hearing back from you either way and keep up the great posts!!

    Kisses,
