Weddings are momentous occasions that are usually celebrated with a big gathering of friends and family. These events can be a flurry of various activities that can sometimes be overwhelming and emotional for both the bride and groom, and their families.
Weddings also mean lots of well wishes and gifts to help the newlyweds along in their first year together as husband and wife, where they usually get various shapes and sizes of blenders, toasters, silverware and the like.
