Both of you've been waiting and planning for a while to make this day go off without a hitch.
It's the unpredictable events that make the best stories for years yet to come. This is your day to celebrate your happy union.
The day of the marriage is sometimes more intense for the bride than any of the planning process has been. You should start this busy day as cool and relaxed as you presumably can be.
Do it alone if you want some personal time ( since you'll be encircled by folk ogling and struggling for your attention for what's left of the day ), or if you are twitchy and need to talk, invite the bridesmaids along for some pre-wedding cosseting. The groom-to-be would take along his 'best men' to help fight off indignant relations or from competing suitors.
These days , the task of the groomsmen and best man has been confined to the honorary positions. If your florist is running late, they are in control of calling the company.
