Modern day weddings


Well-known member

Next friday i have the honour of giving my step daughter away, although i am not a stranger to the modern wedding (having already married off three kids) i feel somewhat nervous as to the modern day wedding ettiquette. I still can't get my head around the lack of organization in proceedings, i am reliably informed by my oldest daughter that that is way they prefer it these days, she says it adds to the spontaneity of the event and i should leave well enough alone!
I admit that that is sound thinking if it comes off, but i am one of those people who needs some sort of order to survive. I am nervous enough about giving the speech without not knowing when i will be called on to do so.
So folks any tips to help me get through the event would most appreciated.
Has anyone had a similar experience? if so how did it go.
