I would first like to toast the wedding guest and her generous gift. Here's to you! It is amazing how caught up a bride can get in her selfish wedding planning. I think this is a direct result of how the wedding industry targets brides and encourages them to feel like this day is all about them. I would like to propose a new idea. Your wedding should be all about thanking your family and friends. It is your gift to them. It is the ultimate thank you. Your family has helped raise you, your friends have supported you through thick and thin. How amazing would it be to give them a big thank you. Take them out to a fancy dinner. Play their favorite dance music. I encourage brides to change their perspective and not only avoid uncomfortable situations but maybe even have a more enjoyable day themselves. There was a recent study published stating that those people that are happiest are the most grateful for what they have, and tell those people that they are grateful for. Check out the video here. Let your family and friends know you are grateful for them and have the happiest day of your life.
