We recently read a very touching story about a bride and groom who made special arrangements after their ceremony.  It isn’t all together unusual to ask guests to spend a bit of time drinking and mingling, while the bridal party partakes in a photography session.  However, this couple had to ensure that their guests were particularly well entertained, because the bride wanted to do something slightly unusual – she wanted to visit the hospital in her wedding attire.

There has been a lot of negative news surrounding weddings lately, which can really put a damper on things when you are in the process of planning your own big day.  Of course, much of the negative sentiment is actually from the brides themselves and is in regards to the expense of paying for the single-day event.  That, of course, is something that you can resolve by cutting costs where possible.  On the other hand, some of the backlash is related to wedding quests and their dislike of wedding celebrations.  Recall, many of those who voice these complaints have enjoyed their own wedding day and will be there to support you on yours.  Nevertheless, if you are aware of the common gripes beforehand, you may be able to surprise the nay-sayers by throwing an event that is just as much fun for them as it is for you.
