결혼식 단어

Normally I don't crosspost from my reference guide as it is always changing. However, do to the fickleness of the internet and the absence of similar content available, it would be a disservice not to mention these valuable terms. During this whole process, these words have made me feel so much better about the wedding. Of course, all work is courtesy of very feisty young woman whom I know very well.
