    Newspaper Wedding Announcements! Where did this idea for an episode come from? A listener share on our FB group - her wedding was announced in the New York Times - so iconic. Made me think of that Sex and the City episode where Charlotte is obsessed with getting her wedding (and perfect photo) in the NYT.

So let’s learn about it! And in the second half of this episode - our listener Sheryl shares her experience and the process of getting her Texas wedding in the NYT.
