You may remember this past summer when blogger Lisa Linehan got people talking with her public quest to find a husband before her set wedding date of February 15, 2011 (she already has the DJ and the venue booked). But she's not alone.
Turns out other women are following suit. Some have started a wedding dress savings account while others have a gown on hold. Some have even booked venues years ahead of time. So when they do meet a guy and it gets serious, they've done half the work.
We're looking to talk to women just like this for an upcoming story. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the chance to be interviewed. Names will be changed.
