don't mention such thing. As for
the remaining four goblets, you
might as well come over and throw
them against the wall, because I
don't think I'll ever use them again
I'm not even sure I still like them.
Learn from me: if you have
something breakable you really, re-
ally like, just tuck it away and don't
tell any elaborate stories about it
At least, not twice.
By the same token, if your car is
running great, don't mention it If
you're really thrilled with your land-
scaping, don't bring it up. If your
kids are making wonderful grades,
praise them, but don't point out any
trends. If the stock market is going
your way, laugh all the way to the
bank, but don't dare tell anybody.
So if you're happy and you know
it, just hush. I won't be held re-
sponsible for loose lips, which sink
ships—and don't do much for glass-
ware either. ❑

anniversary.
I'll muddle through somehow a second victim followed it scant

from ever thinking about it or in response to similar praise at an-
reaching any conclusions, it never other company dinner.
I should have learned my lesson

This understanding follows an the first time, because in both cas-

•Be sure to sign a written con-
tract with all of your vendors. That
way there will be no room for mis-
understandings. Confirm all plans
with your vendors several days
prior to your wedding and verify
times, locations and fees.
• Prepare a schedule of your
day's events to hand out to your
wedding party, photographer,
florist, pastor, caterer and disc jock-

to expect Ask a friend or relative
to serve as supervisor on the day
of the wedding so that you and
your spouse can enjoy yourselves
and mingle with the guests.
•Make sure you take care of
yourself in the weeks before your
wedding. If possible, avoid taking
on extra responsibilities. ❑

ples with divorced parents often
worry about how their estranged
parents are going to get along. Let
your parents take care of them-
selves — they are adults and
should have the courtesy not to
bicker on your wedding day.
•If you don't have the time to
plan your wedding yourself, hire
a wedding consultant She can do
all the legwork for you, including
scouting out a reception site, se-
lecting a caterer, hiring the pho-
tographer and musician, and
making travel arrangements. Give
her a budget'and tell her to work
within those parameters.
•If you're planning an outdoor
wedding, have a backup plan in
case the weather turns bad. Even
if there is no threat of rain, it's still
a good idea to have an alternative

hen planning your
wedding, keep in mind
that no wedding is ab-
solutely perfect. No
matter how much time, money
and energy you invest in your
wedding, things are bound to hap-
pen that you weren't anticipating.
The air conditioner breaks
down. Your flower girl gets sick
and can't make it. The cake you
ordered is the wrong flavor What-
ever happens, don't let it spoil your
special day. You and your fiance
are there for one reason only —
and that's to get married. Every-
thing else is inconsequential.
Although certain things are out
of your control, there are steps you
can take to ensure that your wed-
ding day goes as smoothly as pos-
sible.
