#40 – Under no circumstances may you – the groom – ever be late. If Stag night antics look like they could delay the wedding day, hold it two weeks prior to your wedding day allowing you enough time to return from Siberia and have hospital treatment for the tape marks on your wrists.
#39 – No matter what your bride wears or how repulsive you may find her dress sense, remember this, she’s done her best and you should be suitably enamoured. Never tell her she looks like the dog’s dinner or your Gran’s tablecloth. ‘Darling, you have a wonderful sense of fashion’ is ambiguous and polite enough.
