Also hopefully isn’t one that you are nervously anticipating with a heavy feeling of doom. If so, ask yourself—who comes to mind? Who stands up during the wedding to speak their mind? The unhappy sister? The big brother? Dad? An ex or worse—a long gone secrete lover? Ignoring a problem never makes it disappear and this is no different.

Maybe they can help smooth thing over. Three—If step one and two didn’t work get a bag...
