The period between engagement and wedding day can best be described as a magical time, when a couple spends their days planning for an once-in-a-lifetime occasion, and their nights dreaming about their new life together. From the moment she (or he) says “Yes!” the excitement begins and thoughts turn to wedding gowns and tuxes, who will be in the wedding party, and who will make the guest list.
