Procurement Best Practices and Wedding Planning + Spend Matters US News

(Editor's note:   Many Congratulations to Sheena and "her" Jason (as we call him to distinguish him from Jason Busch) on their marriage. It is amazing how far a shared love of obscure vintage northern soul on vinyl (of course) can take a relationship! Two absolutely top people - we hope they will have a long and happy time together.

First things first: I've gone and gotten myself married. Check back later today on Spend Matters US for a full post on how I was able to apply some procurement best practices to the wedding planning process (my personal favorite: switch to cheap(er) booze once everyone is already drunk). In the meantime, here's a photo, and thanks very much to anyone from the Spend Matters community who offered their procurement advice and support during the planning process!
