Sure you can! You just have to lose any sentimentality about the process. Stop thinking of them as children and look at them as adult guests, for planning purposes.

For the Bride Who Has Everything, a 400-Pound Wedding Dress

Not too long ago, we delved into the tragicomic stagecraft of purchasing one's wedding dress, an emotional hunt that can potentially drag on for week after angsty week. But for the bride-to-be who's still spelunking through salons to no avail, great news: a "visionary artist and designer and bead sculptor" has created… » 11/24/14 1:50pm 11/24/14 1:50pm
