Wedding bells are ringing



I have no idea what to expect or how to plan a wedding. As the Lifestyle editor, I can edit wedding and engagement announcements, but that’s all. I can write about weddings and put together a special section devoted to holy matrimony, but I am a wedding rookie, still glowing in the excitement of an engagement. I have been given great advice so far and a few bridezilla jokes from friends, family and newsroom coworkers. The next five months should be interesting, a bit stressful even. My wedding will be a mix of modern elements with old-fashioned traditional values, sort of like blending the society pages with social media, a job I do every day.
