This tells me something – not that my own marriage or life is so interesting, but that the Church is providing very little in the way of resources for anyone thinking of marrying outside its ranks. In America more generally, about 1 in 3 marriages is now interfaith; for Mormons it’s only about 1 in 9.
The LDS Church strongly encourages Mormons to only date other Mormons, and certainly to only marry inside the fold (though as Naomi Schaefer Riley points out in her terrific book on interfaith marriages in the USA, Mormons also do a great job of fellowshipping interfaith families once a wedding has already occurred). (And in answer to your specific question about my wedding, I wasn’t Mormon when I got married, so we had a Protestant candlelight ceremony.) Focus on the marriage, not the wedding. That’s great news for those who are concerned about propagating the faith, but know that it makes for a lonely road for you personally.
