    WEDDINGS: Prepare a five-minute story about white gowns or cold feet. Engagement rings, vows and Las Vegas. Flower girls, 15-tiered cakes, and "chicken or fish?" Merciful elopements or the hokey-pokey of pre-nuptials and de-nuptials -- and sometimes even re-nuptials. From the perennial bridesmaid to the beleaguered best man, stories of wedding bliss or blunder. Bachelors, bachelorettes, brides and bigamists! Florists, guests, grooms, and wedding band roadies!
