I'm the MOH for my childhood bestie's wedding on June 6, 2009. I've always enjoyed party planning but I haven't planned a wedding since my own in 1994! In my research, I came across PW. I am beyond ecstatic. Things have really changed since 1994 when decorating with balloons and streamers was the "in" thing to do!

I am now the official "wedding planner" for this wedding in June. I'm not complaining, just "re-learning". I'm amazed at you women out there and how creative you all are.

So when I ask for advice (which isn't always the best question and probably sounds very naive), you'll have to excuse me. I'm learning all over again.

Thanks to those of you have accepted me and helped me along the way. I greatly appreciate it!
