THE YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY: We don't know about you, folks, but 1990 certainly was a year of change for this columnist. First off, who'd have thought we'd meet our future hubby on a street corner downtown? Much less marry him but a few weeks later!But as you'll read, 1990 was indeed a popular year to walk down the aisle, as evidenced by all of you who did just that.For some folks, however, the past year left a bad taste in their mouths. Local developer-entrepreneur Wayne Gioioso summed it up this way: "The wine was sweet in 1990, but the year was sour!"

Since it opened at Savage Mill three years ago, Jeannette Kendall's charity resale boutique has received a vast assortment of donations, from skirts and sweaters to boots and handbags. But one unusual donation -- a wedding gown -- has inspired an entirely new venture for Kendall, the founder of the local nonprofit Success In Style. Kendall's newest boutique, Cherie Amour, is lined with donated wedding gowns in all styles and sizes, ready for their next jaunt down the aisle.

Our wedding is almost here, so this will be my last post as a legally single lady. I wasn't the best bride, and often joked that writing this blog was the only way I was able to get through my planning: If I didn't work on the wedding, I would have nothing to write about. So thank you to whomever read this -- you forced me to actually accomplish tasks, and we will have a real wedding as a result. I am sad to move on from this blog, but excited for our wedding to (finally) happen, and way more excited for all the after.

We know why so many women cry at weddings. The wedding march tends to trigger relapses of bridesmaid depression -- memories of walking down the aisle in a puffy Little Bo Peep dress with a huge bow on the backside and a goofy hat-veil-flower thing perched on the head. Never mind the pain of dyed-to-glow satin pumps. These abuses were inflicted by our friend, The Bride. We've forgiven her, but we haven't forgotten.As we move into the wedding season, we may notice that the women attending the bride are looking elegant, wonderful, beautiful.

Since I graduated from college, I have faced the same series of questions at every family function: "Are you seeing anyone special?" someone inevitably asks. "When are you getting married?" another relative needles. And when I give the same old replies (no, not now), they are often followed by affirmations of my youth and declarations that I'm too young to settle down anyway. Even though these folks are likely covering for their sick obsessions with getting young people down the aisle, I take that sentiment to heart.

NEW YORK -- We came here to celebrate Vita Marino's life, and America's. They are linked forever now. Vita was working on the 104th floor of the second World Trade Center building when the first tower was attacked Sept. 11. She called her mother, and she called her husband, to tell them she was all right. Outside her office window, the Statue of Liberty glistened in the morning sun. And then, before she could run to safety, the second terrorist plane arrived from the heart of human darkness.

The Ross Perot bid for the presidency has inspired comparisons with Teddy Roosevelt's Bull Moose third party effort to regain the White House in 1912. Here is a passage from Francis Russell's 1976 book, "The President Makers," that describes the insurgent Bull Moose convention:"[It] had the atmosphere of a camp meeting. Roosevelt, the Progressive leader, the Bull Moose, seemed to have embodied in his person the reform impulses of a century, from Transcendentalism and Abolitionism to Populism and Women's Suffrage."

The bride wore white, the groom a dark suit. They stood at the altar of Union Baptist Church in Druid Hill and exchanged vows as their maid of honor, their ring bearer and other loved ones looked on. Fifty years have gone by since Sadie Alston Woolford, 73, and Llewellyn Woolford, 80, were first married at the church, but on Saturday, they re-enacted their wedding day — with new touches like grown children in attendance. "They seem just as happy as the day they were married," said Ethel Ennis, a local jazz luminary who sang "True Love" at their August 1960 wedding and again on Saturday.

June is wedding season, a time when couples often hear advice about starting their financial lives together. Spending habits, savings goals, debt management and estate planning are all topics that financial planners urge couples to discuss before venturing down the aisle. While young couples might have decades for trial and error, the stakes are higher for those in or near retirement who are planning to marry. "It's going to take a little more planning than perhaps you did the first time around," said Rande Spiegelman, vice president of financial planning for the Schwab Center for Investment Research in San Francisco.

Susan White selected a hand-held scanner from a console, readied both a paper and plastic bag in her shopping cart and placed her 4-year-old daughter in beside them. White's daughter, Tasha, scanned four cans of chicken and liver cat food for her mom. Traveling over to the refrigerated section, White then waved the wand over two cartons of orange juice. She was out of the supermarket in less than 15 minutes, after checking herself out. "I wish every store had this," said White, 39, who recently moved to Sykesville from Baltimore.

Resplendent in a black tuxedo instead of the desert camouflage he wears in Iraq, Army Spc. Adrian Dupree married Mieasha Pompey before 120 guests last night, the eighth day of his two-week vacation from war. As the bride shook with emotion, the Rev. St. George Crosse performed the ceremony, ending with a prayer as the young couple held each other in a long embrace. Two national television networks and a newspaper photographer recorded the scene. "Go back [to Iraq] knowing that friends and others will be looking out for you, and God will be looking out for you. I talked to Adrian, and he said, `It's my duty to be there,' " Crosse told the crowd at McKenzie's Restaurant, near the Southwest Baltimore neighborhood of Yale Heights, where the couple grew up. Dupree, a reservist in the 352nd Civil Affairs Command based in Riverdale in Prince George's County, was on the first planeload of troops sent home from Iraq for two weeks of rest and relaxation in the midst of their year of service.
