What kind of wedding should I have?
I Diane am 64 and John is 60. This will be Johns second marriage, he was married for 30 years. I am a widow of 4 years I was married for 32 years.
I want a day I can remember always and a day of excitement. We have a total of 4 adult children and 7 young grandchildren. We want very much for them all to be part of this big day for us. Unfortunately the adult children are for the most part quiet people, not a lot of excitement there. Neither of us have any really close friends, although we do have a few. In fact the only people I really know are my late husbands family. Also we don't want to spend a fortune either.
I am not sure what to do. Maybe you can give me an idea.

First, congratulations on your engagement! Exciting times ahead for both of you and lots to plan and talk about too.
You mention that you want a wedding with lots of excitement and a day to remember so my suggestion would be to have your wedding at an exciting venue.
A number of zoos, parks, museums and tourist attractions are also able to hold weddings. Have a think about locations that are close to you and think what would work for you and your families.
Have a look at these cheap wedding venues for some ideas.
After the ceremony, if the weather will be ok, you could have a picnic and outdoor games. The games will hopefully get everyone having fun together and will a fun memorable day.
One very lovely way to include all of your family members is to have a Unity sand ceremony. I have recommended this before and you can see the details < ahref="http://www.cheap-wedding-solutions.com/unity-sand-ceremony.html" target="blank">here.
Best of luck and look forward to hearing how your plans are coming together.
