Yes, You Are Having A Celebrity Wedding!

Congratulations, you’re a star! The minute you announced you were getting married, you became special to friends and family in a way you’ve never experienced. So believe it or not, in their eyes, you are a having a celebrity wedding! Here’s the low-down on how to handle the fame.

The “paparazzi” chasing you may be a little nutty – everyone wants to spend time with you and find out how the wedding planning is going. Just like Hollywood celebrity brides, you’ll get the same questions repeatedly. Have you chosen reception centerpieces? What’s the wedding dress like? Have patience.

Keep in mind, no one’s actively trying to drive you crazy, they just want to share your excitement. So when they ask a million questions, smile and know you’re loved. Enjoy your moment in the spotlight. And use a little powder. You know, for the cameras.

Be well, and love well.

Should She Invite Her Ex to The Wedding? My Little Advice Shop

Q:  Should I invite my ex-boyfriend to my wedding?  I made a point of staying friends with all my exes through the years precisely so we could all “get along” at an event like this.

A: Here’s the thing.  When it comes to post break-up relationships, there are two kinds of people:the Keep In Touchers  and the Never See Againers.  You are quite clearly a Keep In Toucher.  So, the question becomes.  Where does your man fall?  I have a feeling he’s on Team Never See Again, otherwise you would not be writing, you’d be putting together the perfect “singles table” of all your exes.  As a longtime player on Tean NSA, I advise that if that’s the case to let this one drop. Your man will be a hundred times happier on the big day, and that will show.  After you get settled in to married life, have a barbeque for the old crowd.  Lower the stakes over the steaks, get it?


Be well, and love well.
