Humor On Your Wedding Day
For most people, their wedding day is one of the most wonderful
AND most stressful days of their life. Keep your sense of humor!
Here is how a groom can help the bride before, during and after
the wedding day:
1. Keep your cool and take things lightly. A sense of humor is
not telling jokes but rather a way of looking at life. When you
cultivate a great sense of humor you begin to see different
connections. Remember that there is always another way of
looking at any situation. Poking fun at yourself is a great way
to break the tension when people are getting stressed.
2. If you're going to be making remarks at the reception, plan
on saying something humorous. If you're having a hard time
planning something funny to say, find a friend with a great
sense of humor. Sit down with that person in advance and
brainstorm a few ideas. A humorous story or embarrassing moment
is often a candidate for getting good laughs.
3. Although food and music are at the top of the list for
receptions and rehearsal dinners, don't forget to include
something fun. For example a strolling magician can keep guests
in good spirits while you wrap up those important photos.
4. For bridesmaid and groomsman gifts, how about a gag gift. If
you want to give them a serious memento, consider giving them
two gifts; one to lighten the day and one for memories.
5. For your Thank You card to acknowledge gifts and attendees,
consider a photo (holiday-type) greeting card. Feature a funny
photo from your honeymoon. Half the fun will be thinking of cute
photo opportunities. It will be a card people will want to save.
