Recently my husband and I had some fun thinking about what makes a good wedding. It turns out that despite the endless details that the hosts have gone through, there are eight top ingredients that make the wedding fabulous from the guests' point of view.
All of us are invited to a lot of parties, even really fun ones. However, we almost never get to witness and participate in rituals that focus on the love, hope and commitment represented by a wedding.
Even if you're nervous, smile anyway. Think about how lucky you are to be marrying your soul mate. Looking scared makes people wonder if you're confident about your decision -- and makes them second-guess why they came out to support you in the first place.
