#2: Plan My Perfect Wedding-- CHECK!!

Wedding magazines, binders, stickers, see-through pocket sleeves, post-its, Skype headphones, sketch pads, fabrics swatches, multiple laptops, and torn print outs. This is the arsenal of a bride in the war for the perfect wedding. Let me tell you, there have been many casualties (dented walls, flying objects, and storm-outs), battle scars (broken egos), and health-hazards (late night budgeting and guest list sessions with passive-aggressive family members are always dangerous). After a whirlwind 10 days in Manila, we are finally back in DC finalizing all our vendors. We are relieved that the major decisions have been made and now we're just tweaking details. :)
