In one of our recent staff meetings, an editor queried, “What if Marry ME was free?”
What a perfect proposal!

This past August, my husband Bill and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. It’s amazing how quickly the years have flown by.
And so much has changed.
In 2001, there was no Google image search, no Pinterest, no Facebook when we started planning our 2002 wedding. The Knot was in its infancy. Blogs… what were blogs? Twitter? That’s something birds did. Cell phones were large and clunky and certainly not smart.
To be honest with you, I’m jealous of today’s engaged couple. With so many tools available to help with planning, it’s no wonder couples are getting more creative.
So we have opted to get back to basics with this issue. After all, a wedding is just a big party where you want to look and feel your best while your guests enjoy the shindig.But even back then planning a wedding was stressful.
In this issue, we talk about a popular trend: the unplugged wedding. We chat about how to (hopefully) make everyone happy. But most of all, we provide you with ideas on how to make your wedding stand out.
A free publication changes everything. We’re in love with the idea, and we hope you will be too.
The best things in life are free! And now, so is Marry ME Magazine!
