I saw this on my month board yesterday and thought it was pretty interesting.

What is the best piece of wedding advice you've received?  What is the worst?

What is the best piece of life advice you've received and who was it from?

    This is actually a tough one!

    What is the best piece of wedding advice you've received? "It's just one day...and no one will notice the centerpieces" my older cousin told me this when I was stressing about my centerpieces.  It made me laugh but it helped de-stress me

     What is the worst? I've rolled my eyes countless times at things people have said...mainly little things like "you don't want your band to do that" or "you HAVE to have (insert something I don't think you need)"  and it ALWAYS comes from people not even invited to the wedding and people I didn't even solicite advice from!

    What is the best piece of life advice you've received and who was it from? "Be with someone who makes you laugh"  My mom always said that to me when I was in high school/college dating total losers haha

    Ditto Lisa - it's only one day.

    What is the worst?
    I've gotten a lot of bad advice.  Ugh.  I can't even go there right now (a lot of it was given yesterday and I don't even want to think about it right now)

    What is the best piece of life advice you've received and who was it from?
    Be aware of your talents and use them!  Not everyone has those same abilities.  - From a colleague who I worked an internship with.

    What is the best piece of wedding advice you've received?  My florist recommended my DOC team, and they are two wonderful, fun ladies who have made everything so much easier for me.

    What is the worst?  "No one will remember anything about your wedding other than the bride and groom"  Thanks, in that case, I'll serve you food without plates and drinks without cups.  At least it will be memorable. 

    What is the best piece of life advice you've received and who was it from?  I went back to school to go into writing for advertising, and my interviewer at the school told me to do the research/strategy side instead.  It literally changed my life and put me in the job I'm in today.  It couldn't be a better fit.

    What is the best piece of wedding advice you've received?
    "Just go with it. Turn an "oops" moment into a funny story" (FMIL). Chances are something will go wrong with the wedding. The FG will be having a bad day and not want to walk down the aisle, the DJ will mess up a name, etc. It happens.

    What is the worst?
    "It's YOUR day" (not saying who this was). Hands down, the worst advice ever. A wedding involves everyone and should be treated and celebrated like a family event.

    What is the best piece of life advice you've received and who was it from?
    FI has a lot of good one-liners and a great perspective on life. One of my favorites is, "Don't give Godiva to Russel Stover people and then get upset when they don't appreciate it".

    However, I would say the best piece of advice came from my mom. I had a huge crush on FI and ended things with my ex because of it. Everyone said I should take time be single but my mom said, "If you like him, go get him". And here we are, 3 years later :)

    What is the best piece of wedding advice you've received?
    My mom recently told me, "Something will go wrong, I don't know what will, but something will and you'll laugh about it later."

    What is the worst?
    "It's YOUR day" I've heard this before as well & like to think of it as family and friends are helping us celebrate our new lives together.

    What is the best piece of life advice you've received and who was it from?
    My mom has always told me "Never do something or say something that you wouldn't be proud of me, your father or Nanny finding out. "
