Meg Keene, the blog's creator, recently wrote a book, and I just finished reading it.
|A Practical Wedding c/o One Love Photo|
My favorite part of the book was a list of questions thought up by the APW community to ask your partner before you get married. Adam and I spent a random weeknight going through these questions, and it was a great evening! The questions cover every topic from religion to money to how we feel about divorce.
Even though our wedding isn't exactly low budget, I think that we really are having a practical wedding, and this blog and book have helped me to determine what that means. It means that your marriage is the most important part of your wedding. It means that you include in the wedding only the things are important to you and your partner. It means focusing on the big picture. A practical wedding is one that you plan on your own terms, and I highly recommend this philosophy. So, go buy the book!
