APW was featured on CNN.com today! I know! I was interviewed for an article about creative and cost-saving wedding choices in a terrible economy (though I’m a fan of creative and cost-saving wedding choices in any economy). Ariel and a whole lot of Offbeat Brides were also interviewed, and they even have a slideshow of Offbeat Bride wedding planning tips (whee!) Add in a mention of $2,000 Wedding, and I think the article was a very very good thing for our small-but-growing sane and practical wedding community. Because as someone said on my Get Rich Slowly feature earlier this week, “I didn’t know so many people were having practical weddings these days!” Well, they are. And they are rocking them.
I just want to point out that the article closes with a quote from the executive editor of The Kn*t, saying roughly that weddings are recession proof, and brides will always spend-spend-spend, since they are your one magic fairy princess day. Yeah. I think we’re proving every day that The Kn*t doesn’t own weddings, as we give brides and grooms their power back. And you know what’s magic? The rest of your lives together.
