The greatest gift parents can give their children are the words: This is your wedding, so whatever you want is fine with us.
There is no one correct way to celebrate your wedding.
A groom needs to do more than just show up.
No 2-year-old should ever have to walk down a long aisle by herself.
The money you spend on a wedding coordinator is the best money you’ll spend on your wedding.
Brides who are myopically obsessed about the perfect wedding don’t really enjoy their wedding day.
You don’t have to believe in God to have a ceremony that is warm, gracious, & inviting.
It’s possible to create a ceremony that honors different cultures and traditions.
Your wedding is a gift to your family and friends.
Couples that try not to cry during the ceremony make some very odd faces.
