Overview

Join Lisa Weiss as she blows out the romantic candlelight and turns the spotlight on all the wedding double-talk and hidden agendas offered by loving friends and professional wedding planners as you try to make your special day truly your own. This Is Your Day! But Everybody Has an Opinion helps you regain both your perspective and your sense of humor so you can laugh, illuminated, all the way down the aisle.

     From your bandleader: "Just walk naturally and you'll find you keep time to the Wedding March."
        The hidden truth: No way. Practice.

     From your rabbi: "Discussing how to pay for the wedding with all the in-laws needn't be a cause for
            discomfort."
            The hidden truth: You've heard of Valium?

     From your florist: "Throwing your bridal bouquet is a delightful way to make all your single girlfriends feel
            included."
        The hidden truth: And feel like desperate old maids.

Wedding bell blues?

This Is Your Day! strips off the white ribbons and bows to unwrap the hidden truth behind all of those wedding well-wishers and advice-givers.

  Your college roommate's offer to sing at your wedding is really a command performance--her command.

  Your bridal-gown consultant claims that if you simply shorten the hem and remove the train you'll have a lovely little cocktail dress you can wear again and again. Forget it and face the fact that she's just talking you into an even more expensive dress that you'll wear only once but will bring her a higher commission.

  Your caterer's recommendation of unique condiments isn't really a creative culinary coup. His uncle Abe is in the chili-mayonnaise and mint-ketchup import business.

  Your bandleader's suggestion that you stick to the classics to keep with the  elegant theme of your wedding isn't based on his perceptiveness about your  personal refinement. He's just never heard of anything post-Gershwin.
