(For those of you who haven’t been keeping up- two of my best friends are getting married, I’m pretty sure they’re going to ask me to be the wedding planner, here is my manifesto)
1. Wedding Singer
Invaluable. I will do it for them.
2. Free Bar
3. Location, location, location
I’ll leave this up to them, but as long as there’s a substantial sized bar and a good platform for me to sing from, I’ll be happy.
4. Dress Code
This depends on location, but I usually advocate something Donna Karen calls the ‘all-day outfit’, which is demure enough for the church service and exciting enough for the reception.
(It’s pretty much a slutty dress, with a cardigan. To ‘transform’ the outfit, remove cardigan).
Often the low point of any occasion, I will generously offer to ‘sacrifice myself’ and make them all. I am particularly looking forward to the Father of the Bride speech.
