  1. hemajang:

    Have fun and don't push the bride into the water.


  2. M:

    Just be yourself and have fun!!! don't be so serious...


  3. TEN:

    It's inevitable that something won't go according to your well laid out plan. Don't worry about it, nobody will notice. Just ENJOY yourselves.


  4. Coconut Willy:

    Take it all in and enjoy the day. It will go by in a flash.


  5. Lose Money:

    RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN!


  6. Scott:

    If you feel any anxiety in the bedroom, turn on the golf channel. It worked for me. Anyway, take a lot of pictures and give your guests the disposable cameras to use, then return. Just relax and enjoy.


  7. sparkyhasselhoff:

    make a plate of food during your reception to eat later because you'll be talking to all the guests and you won't have time to sit down and eat (or at the last wedding we went to, we kept ringing the glasses for the couple to kiss every time the groom just put something in his mouth. he finally gave up eating)


  8. Bre:

    Make sure you take time to remember moments. I got that advice and it was probably the best. You will be surprised about how much you won't remember. So, make sure you look around and make an effort to remember how you felt, what the bride looked like, your friends faces, moments of the ceremony, the first dance. Enjoy and congratulations!


  9. Chicken Grease:

    Heh, I'm not the marrying type, but, if I WERE to suggest (w/apologies to O.J. Simpson and Simon Cowell). In order of importance (except for the last thing mentioned, I suppose):

    1) don't get mad at the bride, groomsmen, or guests. All eyes are on you (w/apologies to TuPac) on that day to take that kind of 'sponsibility.

    2) be prepared for anything (that includes cash in your pocket, I suppose. Lots of cash. The guests may be wondering if you're glad to see them, but, carry lots of cash if you can. Just in case).

    3) make sure you and your bride stay away from large bodies of water that you can fall into (think we covered that with that video, no?); anybody else can fall in, but, not you two.

    4) no grooms and groomsmen pictures done with your guys' shades on. Played out already. Bwaaaaaa :)

    5) don't let the bride's father sweat you; click your heels three (3) times and think/say to yourself, "there's nothing like being single, there's nothing like being single, there's nothing like being single, there's no place like home."

    6) if the drunk uncle gets out of hand, threaten him. Whisper it, in his ear. Just to him. Smile while you're saying it so that any onlookers will know that you're being jovial with him. Now, don't actually DO what you're going to threaten because the goal here if for him to shaddup! Threats get through to drunk people; some of us know this (i.e., "so and so [not necessarily an uncle; in fact, I don't think I've had to ever do the following for an uncle. 'Tis just an zample anyways], I'm going to take you home. I'm putting this bowl on your lap. If you decide to puke anywhere else but in this bowl, i.e., someone on the floor of my car, I will . . ."). One of the few things they remember the next day or when they sober up. Just say, "no, I never tell you that" later on.

    7) DELEGATE!!!! It's just the weirdest thing to see the groom running around frantically, sweating through his tux, wide-eyed, panting, and a camera slung around his neck. Like some weird image out of a Kubrick film or something. This is the last day, EVER (and this is why I don't plan on getting married) that you are king or even feel like you're a king. So, keeping # 1, above, in mind, delegate, delegate, delegate -- even if it's last minute stuff.

    8) We took care of the "out of hand" uncle. But, what about aunties? 'Specially aunties over 60, who grab your arm and insist on talking about THEIR wedding a century or two ago, don't be afraid to say, "oh, aunty, I gotta go [insert excuse here]." Otherwise your bride'll thing you got some weird semi-Oedipal thing going.

    9) Like TEN and some of the others said: have fun!


  10. tita leerz:

    don't forget to stay hydrated! the ushers usually just stand around and do nothing. make sure your best man has a cooler...of water...for everyone in the wedding party. little snacks will help too...maybe snickers or chex mix in the little bags. ...something with peanut butter or nuts (protein). Helps a lot if there's some time between ceremony and reception!

    and watch where you're going...don't step on wife's dress!


  11. dsosa:

    breathe . . . breathe again . . . and just go easy, take it all in . . . after all, this just happens once.


  12. Masako:

    Be nice when feeding your bride cake :)


  13. tita leerz:

    do the "stop-the-rain" dance


  14. frankie:

    Take very small sips when toasting at each table, Ed. Your volume of distribution isn't that large. Ha! I kid, ol' buddy. Your woman is lucky to have you. ;-)


  15. snow:

    have fun, relax, enjoy and savor the moments of your wedding day! everyone has given you some good advice already! don't sweat the small stuff... the most important thing is you're marrying the woman that you love and want to spend the rest of your life with! the rest of the stuff... ahhh... it's manini!! and, if anything doesn't go according to plan, it will provide some fun memories later! :D congratulations, ed!

    Thanks Bre! Seeing some photos and watching back some video footage helped too.
