Apracticalwedding.com (the “APW” or the “Site”) is owned and operated by Practical Media, Inc., a California corporation. This Agreement shall govern the relationship between “you” (the advertiser) and “us, we, APW or the Site” (Practical Media, Inc.).
We pride ourselves in our work and the integrity of our community and therefore reserve the right, at our sole discretion at any time, to review and either approve or reject any advertisement submitted for publication.
As an advertiser with APW you agree to abide by the requirements of the following “Sanity Pledge.”
The Sanity Pledge
…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 are delighted to work with them.
…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.
…however you decided to tie the knot, we’re on your team.
…I agree to conduct my business in a way that upholds the best business practices of my profession.
This pledge shall serve as a code of conduct for you in your interaction with readers of APW and with us. To the extent you violate the Sanity Pledge we reserve the right to terminate our relationship subject to the terms below.
Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement shall begin on the date payment is received in full and shall continue for the duration of the advertisement period.

(b) Termination by the Site.
Practical Media, Inc., reserves the right to terminate this agreement at any time. In case of termination, Practical Media, Inc., will refund you for any payments made on advertising, prorated to exclude advertising already ran or services performed.
