Ms. Matched 2016

     Libby Boland and her friend Michelle are wedding planners.  They are setting up their booth at a wedding expo and they meet Ben Reynolds.  He is the author of a new book, Wedding Day Do’s and Don’ts.  Libby and Ben begin to like each other but they are on opposite ends of the wedding spectrum.  Libby wants to plan the dream wedding for her couples and she needs the contracts for her business.  Ben’s book is about forgetting about the expense of the dream wedding and doing everything on a pared down budget.  Annie and Alex have talked to both Libby and Ben.  They get so caught up in the conflict over wedding arrangements that they decide to end their engagement.
     Both Libby and Ben feel bad that this couple has given up on all their dreams because of the stress of wedding planning.  The only thing they can do is to try to repair the damage.  This film is a different slant on the wedding planner movies.  Libby and Ben have chemistry and Michelle keeps Libby grounded.  This area in Vancouver is beautiful and the perfect setting for any wedding.  3 ½* (I liked this movie)
