Everyone will be ready to take pictures and record you walking down the aisle. Others will get on the video camera and send out well wishes. It’s a day that you’ve been waiting for, so don’t be timid to have fun and enjoy your moment. You hear horror stories about brides arriving two hours late, or the caterer running out of food at the reception. Can you imagine what a guest would say if they didn’t get to taste the crab cakes everyone was talking about?

There was a time when I went to a wedding and the bride couldn’t find her cake, she was looking all over the place finally, they found it the kitchen instead of being on the cake table. Another time I went to a wedding and no one was where they needed to be. The event started late and the couple had to rush to the reception because the ceremony didn’t start on time. The one wedding that was the kicker for me was when the caterer ran out of food. I thought that only happened on TV shows but it actually happened to me! The caterer was struggling to find food as well as a fork for me to use. It was embarrassing for the caterer, however, each bride didn’t show her frustration.
