Every relationship is unique. So every wedding should be too. This doesn’t mean you need an over-the-top element to make it truly special, but rather that your wedding should reflect the two of you as a couple. It means you should forget the perceived “rules” and do what feels right. Are you less type A and more type “I never really thought about it?” A simple celebration at your family home might be right up your alley. Have you been dreaming of this moment since you were little? Then here’s your chance to go all out. Whoever you are and whatever you want, we’re here to help. So here’s to all of you—the planners, the procrastinators, the over-thinkers, the bridechillas, the groomzillas, the classic couples, the eclectic couples, the can’t-be-defined couples…

Q How can we create a menu that will make all of our guests happy? A When choosing the entrée options for your reception, consider possible dietary restrictions. Although you can’t account for every guest’s allergy and menu preferences, you can try to ensure everyone will enjoy something. Include a vegetarian option on your response cards, or ask your caterer if they can create a few special dishes. For a buffet, include allergenfree options, like dishes with no nuts, or allow your guests to garnish their own plates. For instance, if you’re having a sundae bar, offer plenty of gluten-free toppings like M&Ms and Haribo gummies. DRESS DISTRESS Q One of my bridesmaids won’t order her dress and I’m afraid she won’t get it in time for my wedding. What should I do? A…
