I am relatively new here, but it appears to me that there are no places specifically for a Latter-Day Saint bride to get her questions answered, which is frustrating. Let me offer some background. LDS engagements typically last no more than 6 months, so everything is done in a hurry. We are getting married in the temple, but want to have a ring ceremony as well, as none of my family are LDS. I am living 6 hours away from home, currently, but am trying to plan this ceremony and reception so that it goes off without a hitch. It is against the custom of my Church to allow ring ceremonies in the meetinghouses to discourage any possibility of irreverance, so I need to find a reception venue that will also let me set up for the ceremony as well. Did I mention that I am a medical secretary and my husband-to-be works at a grocery store? Yep, we are doing this on a tight budget. I'm a convert, so I have no idea what is supposed to happen in a ring ceremony other than an exchange of rings, an exchange of vows.... umm... and here is where I run out of ideas.
PS--His sister is getting married in October in Utah, so we are currently planning 2 weddings at once, and dangit all if she isn't a Bridezilla on the warpath.
December 18, 2010!!! Never thought I would be a winter bride; just hoping we don't get snowed in until AFTER the wedding!
