- Wedding: September 2017
Wedding planning as a Latina, with a modest budget, that is not a sample size, was HARD. Most blogs, wedding magazines, pinterest posts did not reflect me or my husband. But A Practical Wedding (APW) made us feel like we weren’t crazy for not spending $30K on a wedding (not that they have anything against a $100K wedding). They showed me couples of all sizes and colors and reminded me that I should not feel ashamed for wearing a size 18 wedding dress. APW’s representation, which includes the good, the bad, and the ugly, of love and weddings, is just what the world needs. We still have a long way to go to break the wedding “norms” but sharing my story is my way to start the conversation.
“Ultimately, what we are trying to say is that there is no wrong or right for a wedding or marriage, regardless what you might read or hear. Do what feels right to you and your partner.”
