Important Questions from The Knot

Best advice for to-be-weds?

Don’t sweat the small stuff… remember that the most important thing is to enjoy the day with your S.O. and your loved ones. No one will remember the fact that there were roses and not peonies in your centerpieces, I promise you.

What’s your all-time favorite wedding song?

Going to be biased and pick our own first dance, “Calico Skies” by Paul McCartney. Almost no one has heard of it, but the lyrics are perfect.

Dream celebrity wedding guest?

Guess I’ll go with the most Long Island answer and say Billy Joel.

Best wedding after party snack?

After parties weren’t really a thing when I got married a decade ago, but these days I would go for an ice cream sundae bar.
