Why are we jumping in the air and blowing kisses? Now we're all holding the groom? What does this even represent?

So, that means you're spending your evening looking after the Aunty who has had too many G&T's and ensuring Cousin Sam stays well away from the microphone. It never ends. Ever.

BUT, in the end it's all worth it. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing your best friend stood with a massive smile on her face marrying the guy she loves - and not to blow your own trumpet but she probably couldn't have done it without you. So, grab yourself a glass (or bottle) of wine and get celebrating.
