The flowers, the bridal party, the location, the invitation list, the date! There are hundreds of things to think about once the big question is popped. Ultimately, the magic of the wedding day, the memories that are made and the hopes and dreams that lie ahead far outweigh the stress that sometimes can overwhelm the planning process.
In our annual Guide to Tying the Knot, we take a look at some lovely Columbia weddings (complete with horse-drawn carriages, water fountains and even a gross anatomy book), provide tips and advice for organizing the perfect rehearsal party (don’t forget about the groom!) and offer some valuable insight for couples planning to include children in their wedding party (proceed with caution … or not).
We also take a look at two local organizations that opened their hearts to provide free weddings to some very deserving couples, and some students involved through USC learned some unforgettable lessons in business along the way.
So grab some hankies, pull out your old wedding albums and join us as we celebrate love and marriage.
