Wedding planning and manuscript writing have items in common? Is this another excuse to post vacation images?
First there is the engagement, a proposal of commitment to start something with a goal in mind.

Once the venue is found, how will it be decorated? The place needs a color scheme, a lighting design and furniture.
Will characters, participants be able to move around? How will they get to the venue? Will they come earlier or later in the event?
Everyone loves music. Live or recorded. What genre? What emotions will the music evoke?
There's a rehearsal dinner for the characters to practice. If something doesn't go right, then a change, a revision of action is required.

What will the main characters- the bride, the groom, maid of honor, best man - wear?
The actual wedding starts with the ceremony, the matrimonial inciting incident.
Other details like cake, invitations or flowers will come up as the planning/writing progresses. Will these items be the cause of "Oh My God How Will We Pay for This?" or "This detail needs to be included in the story."
Once the event occurs, the vows done and edits done, when the couple become newlyweds and the manuscript transforms into a book, will it last?
How many anniversaries will they celebrate? We all hope many years of productive and profitable years.
We'd like congratulate for Foreign Correspondent for his recent engagement and forth coming marriage. This in no way excuses him from writing posts for this blog.
