To be honest, I’m not much of a sports fan. To me, March Madness just equals a month of basketball talk while I try to sound interested. But this year is different. This year, March Madness has taken on a whole new meaning because we’re bringing it to the world of real weddings. That’s right – it’s all up to YOU to vote on your favorite SMP weddings, bracket style. Week by week you’ll vote on our Facebook page and decide which wedding will take home the Reader’s Choice (virtual) crown. Read on for the contestants and let the games begin!
