As those of you who follow us on Instagram and Facebook know, I represented APW for our first national TV appearance this week. It was all very last minute, but I landed on Fusion TV’s Alicia Menendez Tonight (an awesome feminist show on Fusion TV that I’m now super pissed that we don’t get). I hope that for the rest of time I’m the wedding expert you call if you want to know what gift you should (and shouldn’t) get your sex tape ex-lover for their wedding. Go check out the segment and enjoy.
As if that wasn’t enough, we were mentioned in a super interesting article in The Atlantic about gender and the terms husband and wife.
Plus, also, more, OMG, we flew APW’s favorite wedding designer Michelle Edgemont out from Brooklyn and got together with staff photographer Allison Andres to do a How-To shoot (in a warehouse) for half of the week. True story: everyone working on the shoot has been reading APW since a few months after I started my little WordPress site. I feel so lucky to have taken this six-year journey with these ladies. I’m feeling all reflective this week, what can I say?
YOU GUYS I AM VERY TIRED IS THE MORAL OF THE STORY. Happy three day weekend, mwah mwah mwah. Let’s all take naps!
Highlights of APW This Week
A stress free Oakland city hall wedding.
Braided wedding hair for beginners, no third arm necessary.
When a matched adoption falls through.
How to you get all your stuff to your wedding? Have you thought about it? (OMG think about it!)
Intern Hayley is married! Hooray!
No couple is an island.
Introducing the APW plus size dress boutique! Cue confetti cannon.
“While writing for Orange Is The New Black, I realized I am gay.”
A restaurant responds to a review requesting that servers “show some skin” in a clever way.
You totally didn’t eat that.
A wedding photographer reconnects with some of his clients, a few years after their weddings, to talk about their marriages. (Scroll to the bottom to hear just the photographer segment, or listen to the whole wedding show!)
Ah, an honest RSVP card.
Things you do at a wedding that would be creepy anywhere else.
The buried lede here is that sixty-eight percent of women (according to one survey) now identify as feminist. Don’t believe it, but I like it!
