Public Service Announcement: the second you start inviting people to attend your wedding, it goes from being "MY DAY" to being "A DAY THAT I'M SHARING WITH OTHER PEOPLE WHOSE NEEDS HAVE TO BE CONSIDERED."
Also, i know "MY DAY" makes peple sound selfish and entitled...but my biggest problem with it is that it seems to indicate that the day is all about the bride and that the groom has nothing to do with it. If you're going to be selfish and entitled, can you at least call it "OUR DAY" to indicate that the groom is actually involved? Unless of course his thoughts and comfort are also being ignored along with the guests'.
I've heard of some family members opening their home and offering refreshments to the other guests during the gap. Maybe she is doing something like that?
