What type of wedding are you having???

Wed Feb 07, 2007 5:06 pm

Someone posted the following questions years ago on WC and I thought it would be interesting for all of us to get a collective idea of what people were doing etc. Of course it doesn't always apply to everyone and I am sorry if anyone gets offended but thought it could be fun and interesting to see what each of us does for our wedding . . . of course no wedding is the same as the other and I think it is wonderful that we all interpret weddings by having it our own special way. Just something different and maybe ideas of what other people have thought off that is unique and sweet . . .
