Thousands of weddings take place each day and millions of people get married each year.

How you can relate:

Even though imitation may be the best form of flattery, weddings seem to be the last forum in which it is appropriate to give such complements.

This film reminds you about what is truly important, and serves as a caution if you encounter such difficulties.
