Wedding day jitters aren't reserved for brides and grooms!
A wedding is a joyous event--but you can feel awkward while everyone else is enjoying the wedding if you're unfamiliar with the religious tradition and customs involved. You want to be sure that you know how to behave and what to expect. There's no need to enter an unfamiliar atmosphere unprepared, wondering:What will happen? What should I wear? How long will it last? Is it okay to take pictures? Will there be a reception? Should I bring a gift? When is it okay to leave?
The Perfect Stranger's Guide to Wedding Ceremonies helps to answer these questions and many more, telling you everything you need to know to avoid embarrassment, relax, and have a good time.
