A: Obtaining a one-time permission to use the Aperol logo on a cookie is a responsible step to ensure you are respecting the brand's intellectual property rights.

To seek permission, you should reach out to the legal or marketing department of Campari Group, the company that owns the Aperol brand. You can find contact information for the Campari Group on their official website. Typically, companies have specific channels to handle such requests, which might be listed on their website.

In your request, be clear about how you intend to use the logo – mention that it is for a one-off private event and not for commercial use. Provide as many details as possible to make it clear that this is a small-scale, non-commercial endeavor, which will help in obtaining the necessary permissions.

Ensure to communicate that you respect their brand and are reaching out to them to uphold the integrity of their intellectual property rights. Once you get the necessary details, write a formal email requesting permission and wait for their response before proceeding with your design. It might take some time to receive a response, so make sure to allot sufficient time for this process.

Good luck, and I hope the bridal shower is a success!
