No One Needs to Tell You What to Do

The worst part of wedding planning is being told what's proper, what's required, what your parents did, what your parents would never do, what may offend two- thirds of your guests and what's expected by the rest. There's an undeniable romance and tradition to toasting a newly married couple with a Champagne flute, but you're in charge and if standard sparkling wine's not your bag, your wedding won't be worse for it.
