A Practical Wedding

“a womxn’s media company that focuses on weddings and relationships.  It’s made by, and for, smart feminist womxn. Bold and unapologetic, APW has spent the last decade as a pioneer in the wedding space, constantly pushing for inclusive, authentic, accessible stories of love and relationships. Our Founder and EIC Meg Keene has written two best-selling wedding planning books: A Practical Wedding, and A Practical Wedding Planner, and is widely respected as a leading wedding expert.

Our content is a mix of real wedding stories, how-to’s, and personal essays, but our approach is anything but industry standard.  Our comment section is full of active (and respectful) discussion, our most viral real weddings were a Navajo couple, a same sex black pop-up wedding, and a seven year old girl who was her mom’s ring bearer. We highlight the plus size wedding experience, and work to publish Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and other non-Christian weddings. We publish reader’s actual wedding budgets and we shy away from overly gendered language. Our essays encourage conversations around egalitarian households, and we talk a lot about sex and relationships. Our motto is “you do you”… and we’ll help you make it happen.”

Pretty Pear Bride 

“started as a site where plus size brides can find bridal inspiration that THEY long for. So many people planning their weddings struggle with finding inspiration that includes images that look like them.  Everyone wants to see people that look like them, doing what they are trying to do because it allows them to envision that they can be just as glamorous and gorgeous as they imagined. So the mission was clear: merge a love for blogging and wedding planning with creating a place for plus size brides to see themselves in wedding inspiration.

Pretty Pear Bride is adding new things everyday including Real Weddings every Wednesday and soon to be added Engagement Sessions and bridal showers on Mondays.  We have also added our “Curvy Bridal Suite”, a fashion guide specially for plus size and curvy brides planning weddings. It includes plus size bridal salons, that carry and stock sample plus size wedding dressesaccessories, lingerie and undergarments.  Also not far in the future is the creation of a forum for plus size brides to mingle and chat.”

The Big Bride Club

“By sharing stories of unashamed fat brides planning, organizing, and celebrating the most special day of their lives, we challenge the wedding industry to cater towards every bride; regardless of weight, color, gender, or style.

We focus on the unique and creative nuptials that our club of badass Big Brides have fashioned. Plus size brides have cool jobs, bomb style, and marry their partners and this is their unapologetic platform to showcase and discuss their weddings.”
