Everybody knows the expression “game face” as it applies to everyday life. It means keeping your face positive when things aren’t going exactly as planned. For some careers, the ability to keep a “game face” can determine how long you keep that job.
Keeping a “game face” at a wedding is just as important as it is in business. Perhaps more important, since there’s no second chance, or redo, for your big day. True fact: When the bride is happy at her wedding, everybody else is happy, too. The minute the groom, the mother of the bride, or her bridesmaids see that the bride is unhappy or upset about something, all bets are off.
Those who are “in the know” will not keep the bride’s displeasure to themselves. But some will tell other guests, who in turn, will become upset that the bride isn’t happy. Some of them will take it upon themselves to admonish whatever wedding vendor they feel is approporiate, even though it’s not their place to do so. And most of the time, they’ll do it with an audience, so the drama grows.
But when the issue is something that only the bride (and maybe a reasonable mom or bestie) knows about, the best approach is to keep a smile on your face, put it out of your mind.
