Weddings are stressful. Even if you've had the event mentally planned for years, chances are things won't go exactly as you hoped.

We'll show you how spending a few moments in silence can release the tension of your wedding woes and why seeking help from (gasp) your betrothed could reduce your anxiety level while simultaneously strengthening your relationship.
