While we wouldn’t take it so far as skipping the entire reception and cake, the results were definitely skewed towards the ceremony. Half of you said the ceremony and the vows were the best part. Half the comments also mentioned the groom (watching…

Most of us have role models. Past weddings we have attended, seen on TV, or even watched in movies. This week we asked our…

    Making a wedding scrapbook can help you recall all of the day’s important moments, even after decades of marriage have eroded your memory. To get the most out of your scrapbook, carefully choose items that have special meaning to you.
