Reading a person's body language, listening to what they say to one another and how they say it and noticing who is talking to whom about what can give good information about them and their relationships.
It takes a special bride in 2012, one who sees herself clearly, who isn't afraid to buck the trend, to show up on the NYT wedding pages all alone; the choices we make in how we present ourselves as women still matter a great deal.
Here's a summary of every response I've seen to the bride who penned the message: "What a psycho bitch!" While I can't defend the power-trippy, condescending tone of the note, this woman isn't quite the nightmare people are painting her as.
While the guests certainly appreciated the eloquent speakers who treated the "audience" to a wonderful tale of the bride and groom, sadly we all became innocent bystanders of some poor judgment and plain old bad taste.
t was here, at my first book launch party, that I determined that the only thing worse than writing a memoir titled "How to Love an American Man" and then staying single for life would actually be to have a wedding.
