once upon a time, in a land far far away (or a few years ago, on the internet) there were only a few available resources for wedding planning. And if they didn’t really represent you, your partnership, your values, your aesthetic, or your budget? Well, you were outta luck. Then, thanks to the internet and the democratizing of publishing, alternative resources (like us!) started popping up on the edges of things, and all of a sudden, hidden in some corner of the internet, there was a small group of people getting married who GOT YOU.
But you know what? Turns out there were many, many, many people being marginalized from the wedding industrial complex. And those little sites grew. And people are paying attention.
Which brings us to today, because we’re super excited to announce that we’re partnering up with one of the biggest wedding shows around: Wedding Salon for their nationwide wedding events. And APW, you’ve got a seat at the table.
We’re grateful to be beside powerhouses like Brides and The Knot… on equal footing, thanks to each and every one of you… for the 2017/Winter 2018 season of Wedding Salon showcases. ?? Think: cake tastings, glam makeovers, killer florals, wedding fashion shows, and whole lotta fun. We couldn’t be more excited to offer exclusive codes to our APW readers in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Washington D.C. and Houston to attend a massively established wedding event. The first two are in May, so here’s what you need to know to get your wedding planning party on with us and Wedding Salon:
NEW YORK CITY! We want to see you on May 1! Bonus: you have a chance to hang with our Brand Director, Najva, IRL! All you need to get in on the fun is to RSVP on this page and use the code APWMNY for complimentary tickets.
CHICAGO! There’s another Wedding Salon on May 8, and you can use the code APWCHI for complimentary tickets to that showcase. Ta-da! None of the staff will be there, but all sorts of incredible vendors will be on hand so you can try wedding treats/plan your destination wedding/get starry eyed over dresses, and generally have a blast.
Many more parties to come, and many APW checklists to land in your swag bags. We’ll see y’all soon, with gratitude in your hearts.
will we see you in NYC or chicago? let us know in the comments!
