It's easy to make everyone feel included! If you have close friends and family that can't attend, consider a reception once you return home. There are hi-tech options for the actual ceremony too, like video cams so guests can watch the wedding live. Or, go the social route and create a #hashtag for your wedding so family and friends can follow along.
Fans of your marriage will always be on the side of your relationship. They won't pick a side -- they won't side with you or your partner, they won't split the two of you up.
Show your appreciation for wedding professionals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. While tips aren’t necessary for all vendors (like florists and cake bakers, for example), they are expected for some (hair and makeup pros and transportation providers), so be sure and do your research and tip accordingly.
Happy couples don't always make "I-statements" or start every argument with a gratitude. They don't feel Fourth-of-July-fireworks each and every time they make love -- nor do they expect to.
