First, let’s talk about the fun, seasonal news. To close out the year, we’re offering an awesome deal on our vendor directory. (Because small business truth. December means your accountant asking you repeatedly, “Do you think you could spend a little bit more money as a tax write off?” And you saying, “But could I… keep it instead?”) So to make that conversation a little less painful, we’re knocking $50 off all of our vendor directory listings. That means you can spend on something that will make you money next year (causing, hopefully, far more stress on your accountant’s part NEXT December), and you can get it at a great deal. HOORAY!
That means that for those of you who had great vendors at your wedding, who you loved working with, but you didn’t find through APW… send them our way right now, and make sure they get an awesome deal on their APW listing as part of their holiday present. (P.S. We’re giving away one free listing on IG too. If you buy one and win the listing, you get a refund/confetti party.) As always, we’re so grateful for all the awesome folks you send our way. Working with our advertisers pays APW’s bills, and keeps us online producing feminist wedding and marriage for you year round.
And in other fun news Brooklyn baking genius, Alana Jones-Mann is taking over our Instagram account this weekend, and it’s going to be good. Follow along for all the DIY inspiration your sweet tooth could ever need. Maybe try something to try instead of holiday cookies?
As for me, I’m hard at work at the pre-launch of the #APWplanner. Copies of my second book arrive on my doorstep in the next few days EEEEEEEEEEEEE this is really happening you guys. (You can pre-order here, your one-week-before the wedding self will thank you, as will I.)
Here’s your happy hour. Have a hot toddy (or a seasonally appropriate cupcake), won’t you?
