Do Not Wait Until the Last Minute!

A survey of wedding couples reports that almost half of all wedding couples wait till the last minute to prepare. 

Someone actually wrote a book about all the mishaps various couples encountered during their journey to the altar. Chapter Three was titled, "The One Thing I Would Have Done Differently Then Knowing What I Know Now!"

Take a guess what the single most common thing mentioned?  They said,
"Take Dance Lessons" or "Start My Dance Lessons earlier!"


At the end of the chapter, this passage was added:

"A glance at the message boards from several wedding sites available on the Internet offers this interesting fact. 

There were 427 responses to the question
"What Would You Have Done Differently at Your Wedding?"

207 of these responses included "we should have taken dance lessons."  This conclusion was usually reached after the couples viewed their own wedding video or attended another wedding where the couple did take lessons.
