Planning a wedding requires a lot of time, energy, decision-making, money, and patience. And for any couple that has planned their own wedding, patience isn't easy to come by when you well-meaning family members asking a million questions and everyone seems to have an opinion about how your wedding day should be.

This looks bad on the bride and groom, and it definitely is not fun to be a guest at such a wedding.
