It's his second marriage, but my first - how can I make it special?
As it's your first marriage, you and your family may want a traditional white wedding although he might not if he already had that first time around. It's good to discuss this with your fiance as he may want something less formal, but do explain what you would like if you're not wanting such a low-key or informal wedding. You may both need to compromise. Even if you don't have a big, white wedding, you can add lots of personal touches to make the day your own. Writing your own vows or having some very special heart-felt readings is a way to make it very special.
