You can make your wedding wonderful and memorable by incorporating many personal details that matter to you. You don't need conventional details...just ones that matter to you.

Let me illustrate, with my own wedding (1993)....

Wendy, thank you so much for describing everything you did for your wedding. People have often said "make it special and unique for you," but I really had no idea what that meant or how to approach it. Your description really makes clear -how- one might go about doing that, which is what I needed.

For me and DF, well, the thing we both love to do together is cook. He and his sons are quite the chefs, but they're meat focused. So they do the meat and I stir up the vegetables and we end up with fabulous food. They're also mighty fine with soups, come to think of it.

The other things we do together are study subjects like infidelity and addiction. (We met while we were volunteering for a group that helps couples in crisis.) I'm not exactly sure how we incorporate that into a wedding -- in a positive way, that is -- but we'll see.

Use your imagination. Don't fall into the expensive wedding trap. Please yourself and your family. Have a great time!

I shall! Oh, and you're one of my favorite Fools, too!
