I thought that you guys could help me tackle some of the Ask Abby (we are changing the name from Dear Abby so as not to get confused with the real deal “Dear Abby”) questions that have been building up in my inbox. The last few weeks of questions have focused on color palettes, though in reality, wedding colors are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to tough decisions couples make throughout the wedding planning process. Here are a few brides that have hit stumbling blocks along the way….

Question 1: I’m getting married in August in Napa with my boyfriend of 8 years. The whole
wedding will be fairly nontraditional and we are having a friend marry us. That
said, I’m a little lost on what to include in the ceremony aside from our
personal vows and a pretty awesome collection of music to carry us down the
aisle.

Any creative ceremony ideas that you’ve seen? Anything fun that this bride-to-be could incorporate into her big day to make it unique? I will pop in later with my own ideas but in the meantime, I would love to hear yours!
