In case you haven’t experienced it yet, let me be the first to tell you that people love to offer unsolicited advice to those planning a wedding. (I imagine you’re all nodding.)

The band packed the dance floor with Indian, Latin and African tunes and guests visited the photo booth to take the “best passport photo” ever.
