Today I got a really good question. It seemed good enough to pass along to you. Free association! In the comments!
So, I was talking to my friend’s mother, who is sort of like a second mom, about alternatives to flowers. And I realized that the WIC doesn’t have a lot of options for me–a bride who doesn’t want a bouquet, but who isn’t religious in a sense that she would carry a prayer book.

One of the best business decisions I ever made was becoming an APW sponsor. And I’m not just saying that because I work here. I’m saying that because my photography business, from which I retired this year because I was suffering burnout from too much business, was built entirely on the back of APW. So I’m never surprised when I meet someone for the first time, and they tell me that not only are they planning a wedding, but they found their amazing photographer/planner/baker on APW.
