Its wedding season folks! I don’t know about you guys but outside of seeing the union of two people, becoming one, weddings come with a lot of drama. Fortunately or Unfortunately (depending on how you look at things) if you are part of the wedding party you get a chance to see the drama unfold 1st hand.
