Über diesen Titel
So it's come to this, then. You've found somebody willing to spend a lifetime with you. Outstanding. Congratulations. But wait. Long before any such blissful celebration can be realized, before that short march that precedes the long, felicitous journey of a life well shared, there is much to do, and more to learn. Legions of friends and relatives must be assembled. Hundreds of choices made. Thousands of dollars procured and hemorrhaged. Do you, sir, have any idea how to select a ring? How much to pay for it? The rules governing tuxedoes? The proper way to dissuade her from the tedious practice of using a hyphenated last name? Are you aware that a wedding is tantamount to the elevation of your bride to deity for a day, while you remain decidedly a supporting actor? Fear not-at least, not much. For in this succinct volume, we bring to bear the experience of the thousands of men who have trod the marital road before you. We build on some traditions, tear down others, and present advice and lore that will gird you with the knowledge necessary to orchestrate the greatest day in your (and her) life. Perhaps more important, we impart practical advice, extending to the honeymoon and beyond, on living as a couple. It is sage counsel, and we trust it will help you celebrate this institution as one that you, indeed, can't disparage. At least, not too often. As the old Armenian toast goes, "May you grow old on one pillow."
It's all right to be scared.
It's not all right to soil your tuxedo.
Some women may believe expensive diamond rings are silly and excessive. We've not met one.
She has no right to know what will happen at the bachelor party.
You'll be better off if you pretend convincingly to care about the selection of china pattern for the registry.
About the seating chart: employ sadistic pairings judiciously.
Design your own wedding rings? Sure. If you're a wedding-ring designer.
Drinking guidelines for the groom: one drink for every two glasses of water.
On the honeymoon: relax, enjoy everything, roll with problems, don't sweat small things.
And don't argue on hotel balconies. Just don't.
