Wedding epiphany

J and I were at a wedding in Germany this weekend, one of a close friend of J's and we had a wonderful time but what I wanted to write about here was why (in my opinion) we had a wonderful time and the epiphany I had about what makes a wedding a GREAT wedding.

This will, I suspect, come of no surprise to most of you but here are the two things I realised (as a guest) that make a wedding truly wonderful:

1. The bride and groom really have fun. They smile, laugh, greet guests with delight and spread infectious joy.
2. The bride and groom have the day they want, not the one that all the other involved parties want...

And there we have it. The very very simplified recipe to a great day. Or at least with both of these you've got a pretty good chance of having a wonderful wedding and your guests enjoying it too!

It really is that simple. Too bad engaged folks never believe it...

agreed it should just be fun- and it should be about the couple

Like the new look!

Such truth - as my friends get married I've been realizing just how hard it is to accomplish #2!

I'm a bit late to the party (hi, bye the way!), but yes, thank you for telling us this. I really need to hear that right now.
