Wedding Etiquette

June 12, 2003

One of the most stressful times in a couple's life is the planning of their wedding. Hundreds of decisions need to be made, ranging from who makes the guest list to who picks up grandma at the airport. These guests have some tough wedding-related decisions to make and they turn to Dr. Phil for the answers.

One bride-to-be dreams of having her dad walk her down the aisle, but doubts he'd show up. Another wants her mom's help with the planning, but she's caught in the middle of her divorced parents.
