Martha Stuart's Excruciatingly Perfect Weddings
Best. Parody. Ever.



 Sara's Evil Wedding Planner

This was a little something I put together while I was working on Excite Planner - we were trying to do a deal with one of the wedding sites (which never happened) so I had to show what a wedding-planning template for Planner might look like. And I had some fun with it.
