The Couple

To other couples in the midst of planning their weddings, Jennifer offers a piece of advice that was given to her by her sister-in-law, Kathy: During the reception, try to step back and take it all in -- how beautiful things are, the people who are there and the fact that they are there just for you, says Jennifer. I'm glad I took this advice, but I wish I had done it sooner, because it all goes by so fast, it's a blur.
