“It’s called the bride day, and so it is. But the white dress, the veil, and flowers are for all of us. Friends and relatives will laugh and cry, eat and drink, rejoice and remember. Passersby will see the bridal party, stop, and smile. Strangers will read the wedding announcement with interest. Giddy children will dance around the floor, celebrating this ritual of hope, promise, love and commitment. Every wedding day belongs to the world.”
