It’s that time of year when people are wondering where the summer went. Some are getting their kids in the back to school mode, and countless others are dreading going back to the grind after a long, later that usual, Labor Day weekend. And believe it or not, many people are looking forward with great anticipation to what 2016 will bring. I know you’re thinking, WHAT? 2016? Already? While that seems like a long-way off, when you’re planning your wedding day, the time goes by very fast.
When my daughters got engaged, there was so much excitement, build-up and anticipation of their big day as they planned months and months in advance. They researched the perfect venues and worked tirelessly to make sure that their wedding day was perfect. And it goes without saying that having a fabulous reception with all the details being perfect was as important as their ceremony. While I watched them prepare with my wife, their sisters and bridesmaids, I had a blend of excitement as well as reflecting back in time when they were little girls and thinking of how time flies.
